An unparalleled cultural mecca in the heart of the Catalina region
BEST TIME TO VISIT
A shoulder season arrival in May will leave you well positioned to experience ideal sunny days, as well as the many festivals that mark the beginning of the summer season throughout May and June. While April and November arrivals will still experience acceptable temperatures around 17°C, there’s a higher chance of rainfall. As much of Barcelona's attractions are outdoors, scheduling a yacht charter in Barcelona during the rainy months is not recommended.
Activities & Experiences
This thriving city is the most visited in Spain, and for good reason. An art lovers paradise, a beach dwellers dream and a foodie's idea of heaven, visitors are spoiled for choice with activity options. Before finalising your yacht charter in Barcelona, consider these must-do stops:
The Sagrada Familia
Few monuments are as notorious or controversial as the famously unfinished Sagrada Familia. Originating as a Roman Catholic church, later categorised as a cathedral and declared a basilica in 2010 by the Pope, Antoni Gaudi’s masterpiece is a must-see. The city is aiming to complete the project in 2026, the centenary of the death of its original architect. Admire the religious symbolism, nature themed elements and strikingly unique style of this iconic landmark.
Food enthusiasts simply must swing by the enticing food stalls of the Boqueria Market. Originally constructed in the 19th century, visitors can expect to find mouthwatering meats and fish, exotic fruits, cured cheeses and a spectacular array of spices. Tempt your senses and indulge in truly local produce.
Camp Nou Stadium
No trip to Barcelona would be complete without an excursion to the largest stadium in Europe, home to the world famous FC Barcelona team. Experience the electrifying atmosphere of a live football game with some of the world's most passionate supporters. For something a little different consider the Camp Nou Experience, which includes a stadium tour and a peek inside the FC Barcelona Museum.
Cala El Crit
After several busy days of sightseeing, switch gears and seek out a secluded beach on the charming Costa Brava. Located about 60km off the shores of Barcelona, this coastal region is home to many beautiful beaches, none more so than Cala El Crit. Difficult to access by foot, approaching by sea is the most convenient way to explore this quaint cove. Legend says that pirates used this natural hideaway for refuge in the 16th and 17th centuries, and visitors can still view some well preserved ancient fisherman huts nearby.
