Hotel Reservations in Barcelona
Barcelona is alive with history, charm, and style. Step into the cosmopolitan beauty of Spain's second largest city and capital of Catalonia from the selection of luxury hotels in Barcelona. The diverse districts provide an assortment of interesting things to see and do right outside the doors of many of the fine hotels in Barcelona.
In stark contrast to the gothic architecture in Barri Gotic, the Eixample quarter is a modernist's delight. El Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família (Expiatory Temple of the Sacred Family) is a magnificent testimony to the ambition and genius of famed architect Antonio Gaudi. The cathedral is a great example of bringing about new design while not forgetting the past as it is a wonderful combination of Gothic and Art Nouveau architectural forms, as are many hotels in the city.
Another district packed with hotels that showcases Gaudi's most celebrated works is the prosperous Gracia district. Park Guell, is a modernist blending of nature and masonry. A massive mosaic dragon greets you at the park's entrance. Terraced walls designed to imitate trees and colonnaded pathways holding up roadways are just a couple of the magnificent structures within the confines of this amazing municipal garden, which is within mere blocks from some of the most stunning hotels in the city.
Sants-Montjuïc district provides an eclectic mix of attractions; from the Placa d'Espanya where public hangings were once held, to the Museu Picasso displaying some of Picasso's earliest and most celebrated works. Also in the area is the hill of Montjuïc on which a 17th century castle sits and the museum Fundació Joan Miró - which holds a very large selection of Miró's renowned works. In the area there are many relaxing suites and many of the best modern hotels in Barcelona.
Getting outside of Barcelona, away from your hotel and the city's hustle and bustle is quite simple. There are many places accessible by car rental, train, or bus for a simple day drip fill of fresh air and beautiful natural wonder. Mere minutes from hotels in Barcelona are some of the best beaches in Spain. The Pyrenees Mountain range is easily accessible and has hundreds of miles of hiking trails and scenic stopovers. With more time on your hands, head to France - either inland or on the coast, or take a journey to Avignon. A ferry ride will bring you to the sun-soaked island of Mallorca, or just a scenic ocean day cruise in the Belearic Sea.
