Sun-kissed beaches, cobbled streets, sultry summer nights, and spectacular sunsets set the scene for romance in Barcelona, a city with no shortage of things to do for couples. If you’re lucky enough to visit the Catalan capital with your special someone, here are a few ways to get romantic.
Enjoy an Evening of Flamenco
Flamenco may hail from the south of Spain, but Barcelona is home to several excellent tablaos where you can watch the famous dance. Spend an evening at the legendary Tablao Cordobes for a combination of dancing, live music, and traditional Spanish fare.
Eat Your Way Through the Old City
Hit the streets of the atmospheric medieval and Gothic districts of the old city on a tapas- and wine-fueled food tour. Your partner (and your tastebuds) will thank you.
Go Wine Tasting
Barcelona sits amid some of Spain’s best wine-producing regions, and there’s no better way to spend a romantic day outside the city than wine tasting through the Catalan countryside. Visit the wine cellars of Codorníu or Torres, or combine a tasting with a visit to mountaintop Montserrat.
Sail on the Mediterranean
Kick off your shoes and feel the wind in your hair as you set sail from Port Vell on the waters of the Mediterranean. Enjoy a morning cruise followed by brunch or a sunset sail complete with tapas and wine.
Visit La Pedrera at Night
Antoni Gaudí’s La Pedrera ranks among the city’s top attractions, but not everyone gets to visit after dark. After the sun goes down, enjoy a behind-closed-doors tour of this architectural wonder, and toast to love with a cold glass of cava on the illuminated rooftop.
