It's not to be confused with the Montjuïc Cable Car, which links the upper terminus of the Montjuïc funicular with Montjuïc Castle.

Public Transport

Public transport such as the metro, tram and FGC (regional trains) are the quickest and most convenient way of getting around Barcelona. Different ticket types and travel cards can be bought at subway stations. Don't forget to explore by foot as well - Barcelona is full of treasures and tapas tucked away down narrow sidestreets.

Weather

Barcelona is known for its sunny Mediterranean weather, with warm summers and mild winters. The summer months of July and August reach up to 30°C/86°F, while in the winter months it gets down to 10°C/50°F. With only 90 days of rain a year, odds are your trip to Barcelona is going to be drenched in sunshine.

Beaches

Fine golden sand beaches lapped at by shallow blue waters - the coast up and down from Barcelona is picturesque. They're beloved of residents and tourists alike; it's unique to have such great beaches so close to such a great city. Barcelona’s coastline stretches for 5 km and offers nine magnificent beaches.

What to do in Barcelona for 3 days

Sagrada Familia

Visit the Sagrada Familia and be amazed by one of the world's most inspiring buildings. Gaudí himself was so dedicated to this project that he lived onsite for 16 years and is buried in the crypt below. The spiral staircases, seven chapels, stained glass windows and extensive details all speak to the world-renowned Catalan architect's dedication to this project. It's scheduled to be completed in 2026 - on the 100th anniversary of his death.

Park Güell

This is what happens when you let brilliantly idiosyncratic architect Antoni Gaudí design an outdoor space. Gingerbread houses, a magic lizard, and a serpent bench that winds around the perimeter, are just some of Park Güell's architecural flourishes. But this icon of Barcelona is also a perfectly kept immense garden; Gaudí's whimsical touches somehow contribute to - rather than detract from - the natural beauty.

Parc de la Ciutadella

The Parc de la Ciutadella is Barcelona's 'green lung'. For a long time after its inception, this 17 hectare green space was the city's only park. The delightful Barcelona zoo, the epic fountain, and the charming mammoth sculpture are among the visitor highlights. Although to be fair, just coming and having a picnic in the sun or shade can also be a highlights of a visit to this vibrant city park.

Getting out of the city to Montserrat

Visit one of Catalonia’s most magnificent places. The mountain sanctuary of Montserrat is definitely worth the trip. Montserrat is a Benedictine monastery, a natural park, a spiritual shrine, and a Catalan cultural cornerstone, all in one. A visit here offers a balance of cultural and natural diversions. Soak up magnificent views from the jagged rock formations, and visit a monastery and a museum.
