There is so much more to Barcelona than the city itself. There are great day trips to the Catalan countryside and coastal areas that are full of overwhelming natural beauty and cultural activities to be enjoyed.

On this page I have listed what to do and see outside of Barcelona city and within 1 to 2 hours via public transport.

If this long list is a bit overwhelming, you can use the menu hamburger and filter by geographic area or theme of activity. Or if looking for something specific try the search bar.

For more information click on a photo.

Happy Exploring!
