Barcelona is recognised as a global city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts and international trade. Barcelona is a major economic centre with one of Europe's principal Mediterranean ports, and Barcelona International Airport is the second largest in Spain after the Madrid-Barajas Airport (handles about 30 million passengers per year). Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona became the capital of the Counts of Barcelona. After merging with the Kingdom of Aragon, it became one of the most important cities of the Crown of Aragon. Besieged several times during its history, Barcelona is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination and has a rich cultural heritage. Particularly renowned are architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner that have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Four Family Orientated Tourist Attractions in Barcelona

Parks in Barcelona 

The first place to start is at one of Barcelona's many parks. It may come as a surprise to discover that this bustling city has sixty eight of them. The largest of them all is the Montjuich but Park Güell is favoured by most families. It is in the Gracia district and also a UNESCO world heritage site. Entrance to the park is free and there is also a wide range of wildlife existing within it.

Barcelona Aquarium 

Barcelona aquarium is another children's favourite. Located in Port Vell, the aquarium is home to over 11,000 animals. The centre is spread over three floors and there is large 80 meter glass tunnel running through the main displays. Any child above the age of eight can join qualified divers in some of the tanks to observe the marine life up close. It is open all year round from 9.30am and prices vary for ages from 5 euros to 19.

Barcelona Zoo 

Still staying on the theme of animals, our next recommendation is Barcelona Zoo. Specifically aimed at educating children in a fun way, the zoo includes animals such as hippopotamus, orangutans, Gazelles and gorillas. There is also a large variety of exotic birds like the pink flamingo and African grey parrot. The zoo opens every day of the year from 10am and they also have regular scheduled activities for the children to join in with. Further details can be found on their website.

Tibidabo theme park 

This theme park is enjoyed by children of all ages. There are 25 rides for the family to jump on such as the water flume, Hurakan and Viking spin. The Tchu Tchu Tren is suitable for young children while the older teenagers will enjoy the thrill and view seen from the Piratta. The park opens at 12 noon every weekday apart from when there are school holidays. The Sky walk section of the park is open every day. Further details can be found on their website.

User Friendly Spain Car Hire

This is not exactly going to be a mountain of information, but the pick-up and processing was seemless and welcoming. The vehicle didn't miss a beat, was easy to drive, and very economical. Drop-off was a reprise of the pick-up.

All in all, user friendly!
