‘Greater Barcelona’ Promotes the City and Beyond

‘Greater Barcelona’ Promotes the City and Beyond

The tourist boards of Barcelona, Barcelona Province and Catalunya have joined forces to launch ‘Greater Barcelona’, a new tourism offering that promotes a Barcelona that is both the city and beyond, celebrating the culture, landscape, gastronomy and history of Sitges, Calella, Manresa, Berga, Vic and many more unique locations.

Jordi Carnes, Chief Executive, Barcelona Tourist Board, and Francesc Vila, General Manager of Tourism, Barcelona Province Council, have outlined why they believe ‘Barcelona is much more’ and what there is to experience both in and beyond the city.

As the capital of Catalonia, ‘the European Region of Gastronomy 2016’, Barcelona is home to 29 Michelin-starred restaurants, with 35 stars between them. Visitors are also spoilt for choice with hidden tapas bars, local food markets such as La Boqueria and Vic’s market, and dining in some of the most innovative restaurants in the world.

The province is also home to four Denominations of Origin for wine and cava: Alella, Penedès, Pla de Bages and Cava are all responsible for producing some of the world’s best sparkling wine.

Costa Barcelona is also home to miles of golden sandy beaches. An ideal backdrop to a family day out, Barcelona’s 100km of beaches offer sailing, yachting, kayaking, surfing and scuba-diving, as well as plenty of marinas, clubs and restaurants to sit back and relax.

Accommodation ranges from de luxe hotels and apartments to hostels, camping and glamping sites to country houses and remote farmhouses to picturesque mountain cabins.
