Barcelona city guide
Barcelona, the most modern and creative city of Spain, is a city that dazzles and captivates those who visit it. Offering a wide variety of atmospheres, a large cultural offer, leisure, art, gastronomy and innovation, Barcelona is an essential destination to anyone who visits Spain.
Dedicate a full day to discover the legacy of the father of Modernism, Antonio Gaudí, through landmarks such as Sagrada Familia or Park Güell; discover the contribution of another Catalonian architect, Lluís Domènech i Montaner, with the Palau de la Música, or the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The elegance of the architecture can also be found in the Eixample Quarter, the Gothic Quarter, in Plaza Catalunya, the park of Montjuïc, or in the Boquería market, all of which hold genuine secrets waiting for you to discover them.
And when night falls, Barcelona becomes powerfully alive. Be prepared, for you will have to choose between hundreds of bars, pubs and discotheques to enjoy the rhythm of the world’s best DJs!
Marvellous beaches and secluded coves in the Costa Brava will round off a visit during which tasting the renowned Mediterranean diet is a must. Based on fruit, vegetables, fish and shellfish, olive oil and nuts, this cuisine will not disappoint you and is suitable for all budgets
Shopping fans can head to Gràcia, 1 km north of the centre of Barcelona at the north end of the Passeig de Gràcia.

- "Comfortable Journey" Leanne p. 14/11/2013
Train was on time, comfortable and fast. My only complaint is that when booking online from Australia not all scheduled times are available for booking. Tried to book a different time through the USA site but it wouldn't let me. Please open up the whole timetable to Australia.
- "Barcelona to Madrid" Joseph m. 07/11/2013
We found the train trip very smooth and very comfortable and organized. Thankyou Joe
- "Great Comfort" Michael g. 20/10/2013
We enjoyed the efficiency of the train system and the ease of getting our train. It would be easier though if more people spoke English, we were surprised how few employees of the train system spoke English considering there are so many holiday makers.
- "Connecting to Barcelona from " David w. 19/10/2013
Make sure you have pre-booked a seat. There were a lot of people at the station hoping to catch this train - they were disappointed
- "Seville to Barcelona by train" . 13/10/2013
This train was clean and travelled smoothly. The seat was comfortable with plenty of room. The advantage for me was that I could watch the scenery, without the hassles of finding my way. Despite being a long journey, I could wander down to the cafeteria car whenever I needed to stretch my legs. I would definitely travel this way again.
- "Trains " Kerry g. 02/10/2013
Fast train is the only way to travel- punctual, clean. A great experience.
- "Faultless trip" David a. 29/09/2013
Our travel from Seville to Barcelona, Spain was extremely comfortable. Train left and arrived on time to the minute. Facilities were also very good, and the train was quite new and clean.
- "A comfortable way to travel" Andrew c. 25/09/2013
I travelled from Barcelona to Valencia on the fast train. It was very comfortable and connected to the metro at each end. Although at Valencia you need to take a shuttle bus to the north station or walk 500 meters to the metro. The signage was not too good but google maps helped
- "Something different" Lisa u. 03/09/2013
I had been travelling in Europe for about a month..planes..buses..and decided to travel on something different. It took me back to my childhood when I used to travel on train a fair bit.. It was great..I didn't need to be there an hour before (like planes).. And was comfortable, plenty of leg room and great to be able to get up and walk around when required...head to the dining car etc. Was great to also watch some of the scenery..missed when flying..
- "Comfortable trip" David Thomas m. 11/08/2013
Very comfortable trip. We had plenty of leg room, much more comfortable than an aeroplane. We also got to see some of the countryside which was a bonus.
- "Spain train" David s. 12/07/2013
The choice to travel by train to Madrid was perfect.The trip took 3 hours,av . speed 280km per hour.It was a chance to see the countryside,check-in time was minimal and the Madrid airport is in the centre of town.The only problem was luggage,since most passengers had a couple of items,luggage was in the aisles.The problem is the space allocated for suitcases is too small.
- "trip from madrid to barcelona " Anna b. 26/06/2013
we found the train to be very quick and easy and very comfortable way to travel by in Spain. We found they were on time very clean and value for money. . We would travel with them again.
- "good!" Jacques r. 07/06/2013
Would be good to be able to get ticket directly on smartphone
- "Barcelona to Madrid Train Trip" Kenneth h. 29/05/2013
The 4 of us who travelled from Barcelona to Madrid were most impressed with our train trip. The journey was smooth and quiet. Seats were comfortable and spacious. Train was on time.
