Regional Information Barcelona
Barcelona, Costa Barcelona
If you are looking for a must visit destination there is no better place than province of Barcelona. The culinary, oenological, cultural and scenic experiences offered by this area will undoubtedly encourage you to visit again.
Barcelona Province although dominated by the City of Barcelona is full of interesting places to visit - beach towns, wine regions, olive oil growers, mountains and more - all with the added advantage of being within easy reach of the capital.
To the north, you'll find the under-rated Costa del Maresme with its charming ports and long sandy beaches. To the south, the rugged Costa de Garraf and Sitges, are definitely worth a visit, as is the Penedès DO wine region inland from here. The emblematic mountain of Montserrat is also a must-visit for anyone coming to Catalonia. Whereas the mountains of Montseny in El Vallès, and the inland comarques of Osona and El Berguedà which reach into the foothills of The Pyrenees are just as impressive.
Barcelona is utterly incomparable. It’s one of a few must-see cities with its own identity partly down to a generation of early-20th-century artists and architects, like Antoni Gaudí, whose unforgettable buildings are like nothing you’ll see anywhere else. Also, if sports is your thing, what could be better than attending a Barça match at the Camp Nou or an F1 or motorcycle Grand Prix at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit?
In addition to the fascinating city of Barcelona, just a few kilometres away, there are some hidden jewels worth visiting. Like the modernist buildings and villas in towns such as Canet de Mar, Mataró, Terrassa and Sitges. And to end the day, there’s nothing better than to drink a toast with cava or wine from the D.O. Penedés or D.O. Alella.
If you’re a food lover, then Barcelona is for you the city has a total of 20 Michelin stars and includes a network of 39 food markets including the not to miss The Boqueria Market, on La Rambla, which has become a major landmark in its own right.
There’s nothing better than to drink a toast with Cava DO or wine from the Penedés DO or Alella DO wine regions. Of particular interest are the vineyards of the Penedès region, where you can visit wineries and enjoy the culture of wine with Montserrat mountain as a backdrop.
