The Pintxos

What is this funny word? Pintxos are the Spanish word for tapas, and in Barcelona they’re some of the very best. You can pick up bite-sized Spanish tapas from any number of sidewalk cafes during the evening, enjoying a traditional drink alongside a mini pulled pork sandwich or chicken tempura.

The Beaches

Barcelona has so much to offer, and the beaches are at the top of the list. It’s a perfect city to visit because after you’ve gone sightseeing in the morning, you can head to the beach to relax your weary legs and cool off from the hot sun in the sparkling ocean. Don’t forget to put on your sunscreen because the rays are super strong here!

The Nightlife

Barcelona is known the world over for its exciting nightlife scene. Here you can stay out all night exploring clubs and bars with all sorts of different vibes. If you love music and dancing, you won’t be able to get enough of the nightlife here. The energy continues all night long and it’s a great place to meet fellow travelers and partygoers.
