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
