Barcelona is a city of great cultural interest with an important architectural heritage which is a product of the encounters of the different cultures that have passed through.

An internationally renowned destination with an ample supply of accessible accommodation, cultural and gastronomic routes. In this guide we will pick out the Gothic Route and the Modernisme (Art Nouveau) Route, the work of the great architect Gaudí, as well as other important accessible museums such as the Museum of Catalan History.

The Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic) is in the centre of old Barcelona. We begin the tour at Portal del Bisbe, flanked by two cylindrical towers of the old Roman wall that mark the entrance to the old walled precinct. From here we can walk around the Bishop’s Palace, Plaça de Sant Felip Neri, the cathedral or Plaça del Rei.

As a counterpoint to Gothic Barcelona we have the architecture of Gaudí, inspired by nature, with its religious reminiscences and Baroque shapes.

The three highlights of Gaudí’s work are: Park Güell, La Sagrada Família and La Pedrera.
The facade of this mansion, which he converted into an impressive undulating mass of stone, recalls an eroded rock formation in constant movement.

In Barcelona you can also relax lying on the sand on any of the adapted beaches, play golf at Golf Montjuïc or go horse riding guided by professionals at Hípica Don Caballo.

And, most of all, do not forget to visit the National Museum of Catalan Art (MNAC) and the Museum of Catalan History, both totally accessible.
