Visit the Sagrada Familia

Among the best things to see and do in Barcelona, visiting the spectacular temple of the Sagrada Familia is something everyone should do at least once in their life. A landmark that leaves a lasting impression on every visitor, the cathedral will equally delight and surprise those who enjoy discovering some of the world’s greatest cultural icons.

The Gaudí Tour, one of the best ways to see Barcelona

This walking tour is perfect for guests who have a spring in their step when it comes to seeing and experiencing new places. It’s also a great way for our over-65 guests to discover Barcelona, where you’ll be able to explore all of Gaudí’s greatest architectural masterpieces alongside some of the lesser-known marks he left on the city. Casa Batlló and Casa Milà – also known as La Pedrera – are just two of his most famous creations, and following a guided tour is a great way to also discover their historical context, as well as their lasting legacy.

Barcelona museums and theatres

Although Gaudí and his masterpieces are a unique experience, there are plenty of other great museums that are symbolic of Barcelona. For example, why not make the most of your visit with a trip to the National Palace in Montjuïc? Or perhaps the Cataluña National Museum of Art (MNAC)? Here, you’ll discover one of the world’s most extensive collections of Romanesque art, as well as pieces right up to the modern day.

Sunset sail boat excursions

The Mediterranean coast offers a dreamlike escape, where enjoying a sail boat trip and letting yourself be carried away by the sound of the waves, the last rays of the day’s sun and the spectacular views of the city from the coast are unmissable opportunities. These are experiences that will create long-lasting memories and fantastic ways to experience Barcelona as an older traveller, since you can relax and enjoy the skyline of the Catalan capital while cooling off in the pleasant sea breeze.

Culinary experiences in Barcelona

One unbeatable recommendation for every visitor is to experience the amazing food and Catalan wines.  The joy of
drinking and dining among friends new and old only gets better with age, much like a fine wine, so indulge all your senses to truly make the most of your time in this magical city.

Explore the city’s most symbolic markets 

If you’re looking to sample only the most exquisite and fresh local produce in the city, you can’t afford to miss out on the
traditional Catalan markets, preserving all the charm and wonders of the world gone by.
