Barcelona is a great centre to pick up a Motorhome at El Prat or at Girona airport it is easy to book just go to the get a quote button. On the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is home to 1.6 million people, and its history can be seen in every street.
For those who want to get in touch with nature in the Spanish countryside, a motorhome is the perfect way to see it. Driving through the Catalonian countryside around Barcelona is the best way to see its beautiful parks, surrounded by wooded hills. Overlooking the farms and vineyards are the Pyrenees Mountains, bordering Spain with France.
This city has always been famous for its inspiring buildings, which has made it the only city to have won the RIBA Royal Gold Medal for architecture. It is hardly surprising when you see the many World Heritage Sites in Barcelona’s famous Gothic Quarter. Walk along tree-lined Las Ramblas, and make sure to visit Catedral de la Sagrada Familia, which was started in 1882, and is still being built.
Of course, there are the other famously Mediterranean attractions of sun, sea and sand, with Spain’s golden beaches close for lunch, relaxation and soaking up the sun’s rays. It’s always worth travelling a little, perhaps to nearby Sitges, for a quieter beach to enjoy.
Barcelona is also known for its sport and culture. This world-class city boasts two large music concerts each year and many cultural festivals where the whole city comes out for a party. It also has a big alternative and underground musical scene around the El Raval quarter, theatre, orchestra and dance amongst its attractions.
With the freedom that a RV/campervan gives, the many attractions that this ancient city offers to visitors can be seen throughout the year.
