Stopping at terraces on...

  • Streets

    You can find a little terrace in any street in Barcelona to take a break on your way round the city.

  • Avenues

    There is one terrace after another along Barcelona's boulevards and avenues, forming a web of tables and chairs that are always busy.

  • Gardens

    There is also room for terraces in natural settings. There are lots of parks and gardens where you can find a little cafe with tables outside to take some refreshment.

  • Squares

    Nearly every square in most of the city neighbourhoods have at least one terrace where you can rest under the shade of a tree, or a parasol, and have a bite to eat.

  • Roof terraces

    Many hotels in the city have terraces open to everyone, where you can have supper or a late drink while you enjoy they views under a starlit sky.

  • Beaches

    The restaurants and bars with terraces by the sea are one of the city's big gastronomic attractions. They are all along the seafront and cater for all tastes and pockets.
