Holidays in Barcelona
Barcelona is the capital and most populous city of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain. Barcelona is the subject of two different legends; the first attributes the founding of the city to Hercules 400 years before Rome, and rebuilt by Carthaginian Hamilcar Barca - father of Hannibal - who named the city Barcino after his family. The second legend attributes the foundation to Hamilcar Barca.
The La Sagrada Família - perhaps Barcelona's most famous landmark - was originally designed by Antoni Gaudi, and this Church of the Holy Family remains unfinished. Gaudi worked on the bizarre church from 1882 until his death in 1926 and his work is considered as a masterpiece.
Other major attractions are the site of the 1992 Olympics; the Poble Espanyol - a replica of a Spanish village displaying art and architecture; the Joan Miro Museum, and the National Art Museum of Catalonia. The magical fountains of Montjuic are popular, and attract many visitors with their displays of light, colour and music by evening. They are accessible by cable car.
If you don’t want to stay in the city then there are plenty of other options within the Costa Dorada such as Salou, 70 minutes away or Cambrils and Lloret de Mar which are about 90 minutes away, all of which offer good beach facilities, considerably lower hotel rates and all board options.

How to find the best deal on hotels and cheap holidays to Barcelona.
With Go-there you can search for either a "Flight & Hotel" (where you create your own Barcelona holiday) as this option is usually the best as it gives you greater flexibility and much cheaper prices, or you could also search for conventional Barcelona package holidays. To see pre-packaged tour operator holidays simply select the "Packages" button where you'll see cheap holidays from the likes of Airtours, Thomas Cook, etc. If you wish to find your own flight (we don't sell all airlines) you can still search for a low price for a wide range of cheap Barcelona hotels or Barcelona apartments or villas by selecting the "Hotel Only" option.
Looking for an All Inclusive Barcelona Holliday.
Go-there offers a wide choice of Barcelona all inclusive holidays and Barcelona all inclusive hotels in resorts close by but there are no hotels in Barcelona itself which offers all inclusive. To see these all you need to do is to select the “All inclusive“ option from the 'Board Basis' dropdown box and search but you will need to leave the resort as “Any Resort” in the search box.
