You can’t beat Barcelona. There’s hardly a better destination for any curious couple than a city that has got the sea, the mountains, and rivers flowing with wine.
Here are ten tips for couples to get the ball rolling on their Barcelona holiday.
Bolster the suggestions with our flight + hotel offers and you’ll be half-way to heaven!
1. Elevate Your Relationship at Turó de la Rovira
Grab some bread, manchego cheese, chorizo, and a bottle of good wine and have a picnic under the stars at the highest elevation in the city – from there you’ll see everything except an end to your glorious love!
2. Skip Off to Cadaqués for a Night
This old fishing village known as the jewel of the Costa Brava could be the most picturesque village in all of Catalonia.
3. Hold Back Your Giggles at the Erotic Museum
From the conduct of ancient societies to pinup culture this 800+ piece museum’s passionate adventure through eroticism’s historical influence on humankind is a great look into the past – and perhaps more importantly for you, sassy couple reading… the not so distant future 😉
4. Go for a Long Walk on the Beach
Romance’s biggest cliché exists for a reason and I’m shamelessly putting this one right at the top! Go in the evening – there’s something about the sound of the waves crashing in the quiet semi-darkness that’ll make you feel miles away from any metropolis.
5. Slurp Back Multiple Vermouths at Casa Mariol
No two bars will have the same recipe for this drink aromatized with any combination of roots, seeds, barks, flowers, and herbs but two things are certain – Casa Mariol Wine Bar has one of the best and a few glasses of this spiced up wine can really put some spice into your relationship.
6. Share a Paella at Xiringuito Escribà
Relationships are about sharing and if there’s any food made for sharing this is it right here. In fact, if a restaurant offers single portions it’s probably a previously-frozen impostor of the real thing.
Head to Xiringuito Escribà for the real deal and let their Mediterranean view set the mood.
7. See the Sunset from the Roof Terrace at Hotel 1898
There’s surely no better way to unwind after a day of sightseeing than with a signature mojito on a roof terrace – grab the hand of your better-half and drag them off La Rambla’s chaotic streets to this classy hotel’s massive roof terrace with unparalled city views.
8. Take a Dance Class
You know what they say about a person that likes to dance… they’ve got a good sense of rythym 😉
Though Samba isn’t native to Spain there’s hardly any better way to get close to your partner than this – there are free classes on Thursday at 2230 at Samba Brasil and you can get loosened up with a few drinks on one of Barcelona’s best terraces.
9. Go to the Chocolate Museum
This thorough tour covering the history and production of one of humankind’s most potent aphrodisiacs should be enough to get you out of buying chocolates for the next forty six Valentine’s Days.
10. Get a Little Wet at the Magic Fountain
Take one of Barcelona’s most picturesque locations and add a stunning spectacle of music and light for the super-romantic price of €0 – muy bien!
