Barcelona, the cultural capital of Catalonia in Spain

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.

About 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.

Baggage security How would baggage be stored on the direct Marseille to Barcelona route. I will be on my own and I am wondering about security should I go to the toilet.

    Great trip | Harry c. | 2015/11/12
    "Comfortable carriages, very fast train, nice lunch (1st class). Usual problem - no indication of which end of the train to board that results in running the length of a crowded platform with heavy suitcases. "

    The trip was very comfortable | Helen o. | 2015/11/09
    "I tried to give 5 stars for value also but the stars wont work. This was a great trip. We were comfortable, and were able to easily watch the countryside through the large windows as we moved smoothly through between centres. The only thing we found difficult was the lack of luggage room and if the rack near the doors were full there were not many other options for travellers. Trains were on time, clean and well appointed for travel or business. "

    Off to Spain | Catherine p. | 2015/11/09
    "We booked first class seats for the journey - everything was good except surprised with seat allocation - there was a lot of spare seats in our cabin however the assigned seats for us where next to a wall with very little view. Would have liked to be able to pick seats as on plane bookings. "

    Barcelona to Marseille | Helen m. | 2015/11/02
    "There seemed to be no working air conditioning for the first half of the trip, passengers alll around me were fanning themselves and I went through a full bottle of water. I had very heavy luggage that I could not lift into overhead storage and there was no floor level storage at the end of the carriage. Train was fast, clean and quiet. "

    Relax and enjoy the view. | Stewart e. | 2015/10/27
    "With memories from 2013 of a scrummage to board the train to Narbonne we arrived at Sants not looking forward to our upcoming journey. What a change! Plenty of time to board an empty, duplex train and appart from the expectation to haul our luggage upstairs (which I wasn't capable of, so it tresspassed on the lower level). Good personal space, coupled with travelling backwards meant an enjoyable trip to Montpellier, enjoying the view along the way. Tasty snacks we had from the bar, just a carriage away. Downers were the impossibly small toilets and having to 'fight' with thoseboarding passengers who didn't have the manners to allow us to get off first. "

    Best way to travel in Europe | Lisa c. | 2015/10/27
    "I'm usually a plane traveler, but decided to go back train from Barcelona to Madrid and loved every minute of it. It was comfortable, spacious and very easy to access. The train was spot on on time as well. No waiting endless hours to check-in. The toasted sandwich I had on board was delicious as well. would highly recommend this way of travel to anyone. "

    Cordoba to Barcelona in style | Brian s. | 2015/10/18
    "I have now used Renfe a few times. I prefer this travel to flying. Less hassle; on time and a great way to see the country side. Being able to get up on the journey and stretch the legs is great. The dining car was a refreshing opportunity as well. As usual the staff were attentive and very professional. Thank you for a great experience. "

    On time and comfortable.  | Ross p. | 2015/10/12
    "Always enjoy our train trips. Very happy with the booking process and the journey. Only one small problem. We have to print out our tickets rather than keep the information on our phones like the airlines do. This can be a problem for travellers finding a printer. "
