Your flight from Manchester to Barcelona, Spain
Enjoy your flight from Manchester to Barcelona, the sunny city in the North of Spain. Barcelona is the pearl of the western Mediterranean and has every angle covered on how you might want to spend your holidays. Arts and culture? Antonin Gaudí, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso or Salvador Dali have left their art all over the city! Beach and sun? Apart from the city beaches the whole length of the beautiful Costa Brave is yours to explore. History, architecture and landscape? In abundance. Party and nightlife? Never ending and getting better and better. Fine food and local crafts? You can stay for years and still make new discoveries.
Art in Barcelona
The beautiful city on the north-eastern coast of Spain, capital of the Catalonia province, has a long and interesting history and an even more interesting present. Go and see the Park Güell above the City and experience the works of Antonio Gaudí first hand. He also planned the Cathedral La Sagrada Familia, which is still under construction nearly a hundred years after he started building his masterpiece. If art is your passion, Barcelona is your dream destination. Visit the Fundació Joan Miró, where you can see the works of this great artist and other current artist’s works. In the Museu d'Art Nacional de Catalunya you will discover many more exciting artists from this area.
Barcelona’s great taste
Between all the art and culture a relaxing day in this beautiful town is a great way to spend your precious holidays. Fine sand beaches are just outside the city, for more secluded little bays explore the wild Costa Brava that is stretching for many miles north to the French Border. Take a walk on Las Ramblas, the street of artists, musicians, cafés and markets that takes you from the city centre to the harbour of Barcelona. Get some local treats from the broad range of specialties: Suquet de peix, a fish stew, Arròs negre, calamari with black rice, or for the sweet minded a Crema catalana. If your energy is reloaded by the great food, the vibrant club scene of Barcelona is waiting to be explored. In Barcelona everything starts a little later than anywhere else, so the clubs may fill up past midnight and the sun could be up before people go home. Enjoy your stay in Barcelona, but don’t forget your flight back home to Manchester!
