Barcelona on foot

Barcelona is a spectacular city, a place where the sea and mountains merge into a city full of life and colour. And there are so many different things you can do to get an idea of the most modern city in Spain.

Negresco Princess is a Hotel at the centre of Barcelona. We know the city and want to help you explore its main attractions and discover Barcelona on foot:

  • Take your time strolling in green areas around the city like the Parc de la Ciutadella, The Parc de Joan Miró, the Park Güell, the Montjuï Castle or the bautiful green labyrinth at the Park of Horta. La Rambla (Les Rambles) is an essential route. It’s an emblematic street in central Barcelona from the Christopher Columbus Monument to Plaça de Catalunya.
