Barcelona by day

Andante Hotel Hotel is the ideal starting point to discover the city. After a short walk you will reach Monument to Colom, which marks the beginning of La Rambla. If you carry on walking, to your right you will see the Port Vell until you reach the Barceloneta, the fishing neighbourhood of Ciutat Vella, which owes its existence to the land that was won from the sea when it absorbed the island of Maians

If you go into the Gothic Quarter you will see part of the old wall and, if you continue walking down the narrow streets, you will reach Plaça Sant Jaume. A few steps away is the Cathedral of Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia, a beautiful example of Catalan Gothic. In the same Gothic Quarter, you can find the Jewish Quarter, where the Museu d'Història de la Ciutat (MUHBA) is located.

When you go to the Born - La Ribera neighbourhood, if you walk along one of the streets that leads to Via Laietana, we’re sure you will be imbued with the essence of Ciutat Vella.

Once in Via Laietana, one of the city’s main arteries that connects the Eixample with the port and the Barceloneta, you can stroll around the Born and visit the incredible Basílica de Santa Maria del Mar.

When you have finished visiting the Born you can carry on walking along Passeig del Born until you come to Parc de la Ciutadella. Inside the park, you will find the Parlament de Catalunya and Barcelona Zoo, as well as some rest areas.

Afterwards, you can wander up Passeig Lluís Companys to the Arc de Triomf, to then go to Plaça Catalunya, which is the starting point of some of the city’s most important roads.

Plaça Catalunya stands right in the heart of the city and it used to be the meeting point between the walled city and the Eixample. You can continue your tour along the majestic Passeig de Gracia, whilst contemplating Catalan Modernisme (Casa Ametller, Casa Batlló and Casa Milá -La Pedrera-) or return to the Hotel through the Raval Quarter, thus submerging yourself into the most culturally mixed neighbourhood in Barcelona and one of the largest in density of all of Europe. Alternatively, you can ‘ramblear’, that is, take a stroll along the emblematic and always busy Rambla, where you will find numerous flower stalls, street performers, mime artists, the Mercat de la Boqueria and the Gran Teatre del Liceu (among others).
