Barcelona Airport

Airport Car Hire

One of the most visited cities in Europe, Barcelona has plenty for visitors to enjoy. From the busy La Rambla to the Gothic quarter and the architecture of Gaudi, the city is home to a wealth of things to see and do. But the region of Catalonia is more than just one city, however great, and if you’ve hired a car, it would be a shame not to explore beyond Barcelona’s borders. Here are three destinations for an enjoyable day trip:

  • Girona. Located in the north of Catalonia, Girona is a place with a special, calm atmosphere. Situated at the confluence of four rivers, the historic city boasts a well-preserved old town and landmarks like the medieval Jewish quarter, the old Arab baths (now turned into a museum), and the beautiful Benedictine church of Sant Pere de Galligants. Girona is also famous as the access point of the nearby Costa Brava or the wild coast, a stunning beach stretching all the way to the border with France. Located some 105 km (65 miles) northeast of Barcelona, Girona can be reached in about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  • Tarragona. Inhabited since antiquity, Tarragona was founded by Phoenicians. But it was the area’s next rulers, the Romans, who left the city’s most impressive landmark, the impressive Tarraco complex. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it includes old fortifications, an amphitheatre, a necropolis, and many other structures. In addition to that, the city is home to a number of annual festivities like the International Fireworks Display which takes place in the first week of every July. And this being Catalonia, there are also a number of blue flag beaches. Situated about 100 km (62 miles) southwest of Barcelona, Tarragona can be reached in 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Lleida. Capital of the province of the same name, Lleida is the largest inland settlement of Catalonia. Markedly different in atmosphere from the resort towns on the coast, it is home to Seu Vella Cathedral, a number of other beautiful churches, Lleida Museum, and large green spaces. The city is perfectly situated to explore the bucolic Catalan countryside and vineyards, and it can also serve as an access point to the mighty Pyrenees. Located about 160 km (100 miles) east of Barcelona, Lleida takes two hours to reach.
