Vivacious, ambitious, industrious: Barcelona is second to none

This cool, cosmopolitan metropolis is the bastion of Catalan nationalism and one of the greatest port cities on the Mediterranean. Barcelona’s distinct culture finds exuberant expression in its architecture – in the sinuous swirls of its Modernista buildings, in the other-worldly weirdness of Park Güell and in the soaring spires of the Sagrada Família. A stroll along the Rambla, Barcelona’s famed promenade, reveals a city of irrepressible energy and a proud and unique identity.

The Quiet Man

An authentic Irish bar

Stay Editor's Note

Barcelona has plenty of Irish bars but The Quiet Man in Raval is remarkably authentic. The authentic pub is named after the famous movie from the fifties and offers comfy snugs, live sports games on tv and friendly bartenders. This is clearly a hit with local Catalans as well as visitors looking for a taste of home.

It’s normally a quite place to sip a well-pulled Guinness, catch a poetry reading or shoot some pool in the back-room bar. The tempo normally quickens at weekends though, when there’s often live music.
