Barcelona is a fabulous city filled with rich history and culture. There is no shortage of attractions for your entire family to enjoy. Kids will love the Park Güell, a UNESCO World Heritage site, featuring works by artist Antoni Guadí including Hansel and Gretel houses and beautiful ornamental dragons. More of Guadí’s work can be seen at the stunning (if unfinished) La Sagrada Familia Basilica. The Cuitadella Park is a great location for kids to blow off steam outdoors — and even see animals at the zoo. Visit the ocean life at the L’Aquarium Barcelona, which boasts the longest sea tunnel in all of Europe. For a cultural experience, stroll through La Rambla, one of the city’s most famous streets, filled with vendors and street performers. Other cultural attractions include the Chocolate Museum (which kids of all ages will adore), the magic fountains show at the Plaça d’Espanya, and the Picasso Museum, which houses the most extensive collection of Pablo Picasso’s artwork. If you just want to relax, Barcelona is home to many gorgeous beaches where you can enjoy a view of the Mediterranian coastline. The Montjuïc Castle sits on Barcelona’s harbor and also offers stunning Mediterranian views — the perfect location for a family photo op. No matter what your Barcelona adventure looks like, it’s sure to inspire memories that will last a lifetime.
