Live the perfect romance in Barcelona

Live the perfect romance in Barcelona

Paris is famous for being the city of love. We believe this affirmation is true, but we also think Barcelona can be as romantic as the city of lights. The Catalan capital is an excellent location to celebrate a wedding anniversary, enjoy a superb romantic getaway or simply surprise your partner with an ideal vacation destination.

On this post, we are going to suggest charming locations, little beautiful corners and special activities for couples to live the perfect romance in Barcelona.

If you have been traveling the night before or in the early morning, you will probably prefer a late and slow start for your day in the city. A good option is to simply wander around and even get lost in El Gótico (the Gothic quarter), the old town area of Barcelona. The narrow streets create a special atmosphere and the small specialty shops and boutiques will captivate you. Simply holding hands while walking around this area will make you feel joy.
In this same fascinating neighborhood, you will find a considerable number of restaurants famous for their cuisine and the quality of their service. One of them is the Palau Requesens, inside the biggest medieval palace of Barcelona, that takes you to the XIV century keeping the elegance at all times. However, if your prefer the art noveau to medieval times, we suggest you visit Quatre Gats, one of the most emblematic locations in the old town, since it used to be the meeting point of many artists and writers. This very special restaurant took its inspiration from the Chat Noir in Paris. If you would prefer a location with less history but still good taste and quality food for a romantic meal, you can go to the restaurant Pla, where you will find creative dishes and a close but formal service.


For a perfect and truly romantic afternoon and evening we suggest you to get on Barcelona's Port Cable Car to go to Mirablau. There, you will be able to enjoy the magnificent views of the city while the sun sets with a glass of wine in your hands. On your way back down Montjuïc, you will find the Magic Fountain on Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina. This might be one of the most romantic spots in the city, where you can enjoy a show of sound, lights and water with your partner. We would recommend to have a look at the usual display times for the Magic Fountain.

However, if your preference is to spend the evening in the city center, La Pedrera is a fantastic option for you and your significant other. The night tour called "Gaudí’s Pedrera: The Origins” is a spectacular experience in one of the most emblematic buildings of Barcelona. A guided tour with audiovisual projections that will let you discover the essence of Gaudí's architecture.

And why not treat yourselves to a spa? Aire de Barcelona will allow you to enjoy baths and treatments in a historic building located in El Born. Inside, you will be surrounded by peace, quiet and beautiful brick walls and vaults. You will be able to relax and lose track of time in this incredible spa.


Making a reservation for the right hotel is also very important when you plan and go on a romantic getaway. It has to be a place where you can have privacy and disconnect from your daily routine; it needs to be charming and elegant and, of course, it must offer a good service. We honestly believe Primero Primera is perfect for a romantic stay in Barcelona due to its charm and welcoming atmosphere. If the weather is nice enough, you can swim in the outdoors pool, and in winter time, you can enjoy a drink next to the fireplace of our Bar Honesto (Honest Bar). It does sound like the perfect romance to us.
