Christmas, a special time of year, not just in Barcelona but throughout the whole world. You will find te oldest traditions mingled in with the newer ones, you will see lights and decorations scattered around but what you will not see is shops open on this festive and religious holiday.

Are you a couple looking to make some romantic memories in Barcelona? There is always something new and exciting to experience in Spain' second city. With a combination of long history and rich culture, you and your partner will have lots of choices to make on places to go and things to see.

In Barcelona there is no shortage of attractions to make your holiday one to remember, but the first place to start for couples should be Las Ramblas. If you are staying in the city centre, it will be your hub for all activity.
Since the Olympic Games in 1992 sparked a rejuvenation of Barcelona's beaches, their number has grown from one to seven. They are situated along a 5km stretch of the city's coastline, from North to South. Manned by lifeguards from June to September, they cater for a growing number of tourists and can be accessed in only 20 minutes from the city centre.
More than 3.5million tourists now visit the beaches every year. The city's council is continually improving services, creating a cleaner and safer place.
If you are in need of a short break to get your mind off the stresses of everyday life, then you may want to consider visiting Barcelona; this vibrant city is only 2 hours away by plane and is home to some amazing architecture and incredible sights.
