Visit a unique museum, dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant, enjoy your favourite sport, indulge in a wine tasting, see an ancient church or take a walk through the beautiful woods and mountains of one of the 16 nature parks in Barcelona’s surroundings. Or take to the beaches and towns along the coast, the vineyards and wineries of the Penedès, Alella and El Pla de Bages regions, the mountains of the Berguedà area or the plains of Osona and Anoia...

Experience the excitement of the Patum festival in Berga or the Human Tower Day at Vilafranca del Penedès. Spread out your towel on one of the clean sandy beaches along more than 100 kilometres of coastline and collect special moments by building sand castles with your kids, splashing in the sea with friends or walking along the edge of the waves with your partner.

Countless exciting and interesting spots assure you of a memorable getaway from the big city.
