Culture in Barcelona

Barcelona is rich in history, religion, architecture and above all, culture. It is a city with an infectious vibe, one that draws in travelers, enticing them to never leave.

Our number one pick for cultural things to do in Barcelona, is to explore the most historic area in the city, the Gothic Quarter. Nestled downtown, the Gothic Quarter, is home to Barcelona's incredible Cathedral and Picasso Museum amongst plenty of other local niche courtyards and medieval alleyways, all with an incredibly rich history, which help give the city its dynamic character.

Walk to the edge of the Gothic Quarter and you'll stumble upon one of Barcelona's quaintest, boutique wine shops. Our number five pick is an excellent way to experience Barcelona's local wines as well as its local artists. Paladar Vinoteca doubles as wine shop and art studio, featuring not only Spanish wines but has a wide international selection as well.

If you want to get a genuine feel for Barcelona's local culture, then our number eight pick is your best bet. Hi.
