Barcelona is ideally placed for weekend trips to nearby towns and villages around Catalonia. One that we highly recommend visiting is Cadaqués. A quaint and more or less unchanged fishermen’s village home to the late Salvador Dalí, with whitewash houses, stunning scenery and delicious food and drink. Only two and a half hours from the Catalan capital, you’d be mad not to visit Cadaqués during your stay in Barcelona.
If you’re keen to explore the outdoors, try new sports and hobbies but don’t want to spend as much as you would on a flashy gym membership, here’s your ideal guide to free (or almost free!) activities in the Catalan capital.
