Gateway to Catalonia

Barcelona is the gateway to Catalonia: a rich and varied region with a unique historic and cultural heritage and world-renowned cuisine.

Barcelona is renowned as one of the most dynamic destinations in the Mediterranean. Its attractions extend beyond its city limits throughout the region. All along the coast and heading inland, you’ll find wonderful sights and visitor attractions that come under different tourism brands

Today, Destination Barcelona is the gateway to Catalonia and offers a wide variety of attractions and things to do beyond its boundaries, thanks to its different brands and places of interest, from Lleida, the Pyrenees and the Terres de l’Ebre, to the Costa Brava, Costa Daurada, Costa Barcelona, Vall d’Aran and Barcelona. Its extensive road and rail network means you can travel from the sea to the mountains in under two hours and immerse yourself in nature while enjoying winter sports, hiking and mountaineering, and take part in the traditions and countless cultural events in cities where world-renowned Catalan artists have made their mark. 

City tourism and nature are inextricably linked and go hand in hand with sustainable tourism, which brings added value, is socially responsible and economically diverse in order to ensure visitors can enjoy, observe and discover nature and its associated cultural expressions in a way that respects the environment and enriches their experiences.
