Join us as we explore the majestic mountain of Monsterrat. Located about an hour’s train ride from Barcelona, you ascend to the peak of the mountain on an unforgettable cable car ride, and once you reach the top there is plenty to see and do. Visit the famous Benedictine Abbey, hike around the scenic trails, and enjoy a picnic lunch all with incredible views from above the clouds. The cost of the tour for HelloBCN guests is free, and all you have to pay for is transport. This is not an activity to be missed!


Antoni Gaudi, the godfather of architecture in Barcelona, left quite the footprint on our city: Gaudi’s magnum opus, La Sagrada Familia, is an awe-inspiring cathedral that has been under perpetual construction for over a hundred years. Park Güell is a park that Gaudi built into a mountain, that offers unparallel 360 degree views of the city, the surrounding mountains, and of course, the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea. La Pedrera is an amazing house characterized by his distinctive style, and one that serves as another of his distinguished works.

To the beach...

Come enjoy a day in the sun in Barcelona’s famed Mediterranean beaches. There is plenty of beach volleyball for players of all skill levels, and if volleyball isn’t your thing, simply relax in the sun or take a dip in the sea. There is nothing like a day on the beach chatting with new friends from every corner of the world! So come and enjoy one of Barcelona’s best attractions!
