Attractions and leisure

Everybody loves leisure and having fun. And Barcelona offers fun for everyone: kids and adults, thrill seekers, and people in search of peace and quiet. You can walk among sharks, stroke dolphins, take a head-spinning ride on a roller coaster or enjoy the magnificent views of Barcelona and peaceful atmosphere of the parks. Although the best thing is to try and fit them all in.

From amusement parks to a bird's-eye view of the city, you can't imagine what Barcelona has to offer.


Parks in the city and in the hills, mazes and gardens, works of art like the Park Güell; and all of them in the open air.


Over 4 and a half kilometres of beaches with every amenity, invite you to enjoy the Mediterranean throughout the year.

With kids Sharks at L'Aquàrium, harbour cruises, voyages to outer space at CosmoCaixa… It's not a story, it's Barcelona.
