Barcelona – a city break in the horn of plenty of Europe
Created by Mondo for Finnair
The narrow alleys of Barri Gòtic are easy to get lost in. But does it really matter where you are going, if wherever you turn there is a cosy café or a grand Gothic church? It would be so easy to spend a whole day in the mediaeval centre of Barcelona, but there’s no time, there’s too much left to see in the city!
Barcelona is a perfect combination of a beach holiday and a city break. Busy market halls, trendy bars, restaurants and wide boulevards buzzing with life and the golden sands of La Barceloneta make an ideal destination for a long weekend—or even longer.
There are naturally Barcelona’s iconic sights—Antoni Gaudí’s buildings that defy the imagination. The most famous of his edifices is La Sagrada Família, which must be the most fantastical church in the world and which has been under construction for more than a century.
A different type of culture can be witnessed at Camp Nou, the home stadium of FC Barcelona, which also houses the museum of the famous football team. It can also be quite an experience to watch Barça’s matches at one of the bars frequented by the locals—for example, around the lively neighbourhood of El Raval.
