If you’re lucky enough to be spending Valentine’s day in Barcelona then you’ve come to the right place. No matter your pocket size there is plenty available for you this February 14th. From romantic walks through the gothic quarter to its golden sand beaches and architectural wonders, there’s various options to choose from.
Something to bear in mind whilst you’re visiting as well, is that they don’t generally celebrate Valentine’s day in Barcelona as they dedicate their day of romance to the Sant Jordi Festival. The Sant Jordi is one of the most celebrated festivals in the region and not a day to miss. However, taking this into account means you don’t have to stress about not being able to get a reservation at your most desired restaurant/ activities on Valentine’s day.
