Barcelona attractions and Travel Tips

Car Rental in Barcelona

Barcelona is a city that attracts tourists from all over the world. Beautiful architecture, stunning beaches and year-round good weather have made this city one of Europe's most popular destinations. If you rent a car in Barcelona, you'll be able to explore not only the city, but also the surrounding area. Historical sites, stunning nature, and charming nearby towns make the entire region a joy to discover.

Places to see in Barcelona

The center of Barcelona is famous for architecture by Antoni Gaudí. The still-unfinished Sagrada Familia is his masterpiece, a stunning basilica with impressive stonework and stained-glass windows. Other examples of Gaudí's work include the Casa Batlló and Parc Güell. Most Gaudí buildings are open to the public, although you will have to pay for admission. Admiring the gorgeous façades will always be free, though!

Want to hit the beach? The inner-city beaches can be crowded in summer, so you're better off using Barcelona car hire and heading to a nearby town like Sitges or Calella. These seaside resort towns have great beaches to enjoy by day, and a wonderful party vibe at night. In particular, Sitges is famous for its Pride celebrations. You can look for cheap car rentals at the Barcelona Airport BCN to start exploring the area.

If you're in Barcelona on the first Sunday of the month, you'll enjoy free entry to the city's many galleries and museums. But forget your Sunday morning lie-in – most places will close at midday!

What is there for kids to do in Barcelona?

Car rental in Barcelona is a great idea if you're traveling with the family. That's because some of the most kid-friendly attractions are located outside the city. The PortAventura theme park is popular with teens. You can get there easily with a rental car from Barcelona and enjoy a day of serious thrills. It will take about an hour and twenty minutes to drive there. Get there early to avoid the queues. If you're traveling in October, don't miss the chance to see the park totally transformed with a spooky Halloween theme.

Car hire in Barcelona will also allow you to travel to El Tibadabo, high on a hill overlooking the city. Mom and Dad can enjoy the temple here and the spectacular views, while the kids will go wild for the small amusement park.

Drive back to the city in the evening, and you'll be in time for the kids to enjoy the Font Màgica. This fountain that offers a nightly free show with the water jumping in time with music and lights and couldn't be easier to get to with Barcelona car rental.

Cuisine in Barcelona

Many tourists like to take their cheap car hire in Barcelona to the Eixample neighborhood, where there are plenty of restaurants to enjoy. Like any big city, Barcelona has cuisine from all over the world - but if you want to sample the local gastronomy, you'll find plenty of choice. Keep in mind that, if you're going outside of Barcelona city, you might find that the restaurants have very different timetables from back home! Lunch service often doesn't begin until 2 pm or later, while many locals don't eat dinner until 10 pm.

The best paella can be found in the rice-growing south of Catalonia, so using rental cars form Barcelona will get you there easily. Visit in the spring and you'll be in time for the famous calçot season, when local people have barbecues every weekend to celebrate this unique variety of onion. Find car rentals in Barcelona to take you to the nearby town of Valls, which has a calçot festival complete with eating competitions.

Can you roadtrip to other cities?

Yes. Many tourists love taking advantage of car hire in Barcelona to explore the entire Iberian Peninsula. There's a great network of highways across Spain, making it easy to travel all around this beautiful country. You could go south to Valencia or Alicante, hugging the coast and stopping off at the many charming beach towns along the way. Head inland if you're interested in seeing Madrid or, if you're feeling ambitious, cross the entire country! In the west, cheap car rentals at the Badajoz airport BJZ will allow you to end your Iberian adventure.
