The 3 Best Things To Do In Barcelona

By Chris Boyle

Don’t miss out on Barcelona’s wealth of attractions and adventures



This one-Michelin-starred restaurant is generally considered one of Barcelona’s finest.

Situated in the newly constructed pavilion adjacent to the hotel’s gardens, the atmosphere inside can only be described as elegantly sophisticated, with its soothing color scheme of whites and light cream tones, perfectly complemented by tasteful lowlevel lighting. The restaurant is intimate, with one dining room with a capacity of 45, another with a capacity of just 18, and a terrace with eight additional tables. Such a setting ensures that your experience in gastronomic excellence is a relaxing one, and as a result of its understated class and fine cuisine, ABaC’s reputation among those who prize high class dining is blossoming.




The church of La Sagrada Família is architecture on a grand scale.

Construction began in March 1882 from a project by the diocesan architect Francisco de Paula del Villar (1828-1901). At the end of 1883 Gaudí was commissioned to continue the construction of the church, a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. Since then the completion of the building has fallen to a number of architects, and work continues to this day. As impressive internally as it is externally, a tour of its interior will not disappoint. The building is in the center of Barcelona, and over the years has become a symbol of both the city and the country’s identity. Gaudí himself said: “The expiatory church of La Sagrada Família is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people.” The building is expected to be completed within the first third of the 21st century

Opened in 1908, the Palau Música Catalana remains one of the finest concert halls in the world and is a cultural highlight of Barcelona.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Palau Música Catalana is one of Barcelona’s most outstanding landmarks, and is well worth a visit, even if you are not able to attend one of the famous concerts. However, if you do decide to attend one of the fantastic music shows on offer, then the Palau Música Catalana will provide a top-quality VIP experience, including a special meal in a private area, such as the LLuis Millet Room, or a private concert with gala dinner at the Petit Palau.
