Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

La Catedral

When approached from the side of the avinguda de la Catedral, the central cathedral of Barcelona is a magical sight. Officially named the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, it is frequently referred to as simply La Catedral. Its main facade (the northwestern one) is richly decorated with gargoyles and stone labyrinths, as it follows the North European Gothic tradition. Thus la Catedral is distinctly different from the majority of other churches of Barcelona. The facade was added to the church only in 1870, even though its design dates back to the plan of 1408. Nowadays the facade is periodically covered with scaffolds and restored here and there.

The rest of the impressive structure was built between 1298 and 1460. Other facades are barely decorated at all. The octagonal towers with flat roofs remind us that the church stands in Catalonia and is not immune from the influence of Catalan Gothic tradition. The interior of the church is vast and domineering, with the central nave separated from the aisles with rows of tall slender pillars. La Catedral is one of few churches of Barcelona that were spared from the anarchist looting during the civil war: its ornaments and decorations, although quite frugal anyway, are intact.
