Catalunya is an autonomous community of Spain, situated in the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Andorra and France. The stunning Costa Brava runs down one side of Catalunya, culminating at the regional capital of Barcelona. To the north of the region, you can find the beautiful Pyrenean mountain range.
Barcelona is the capital city of Catalunya, and the nearest city to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. With a population of 1.6 million inhabitants, it is also the second most populated city in Spain (after Madrid). The city spreads from the coast out to the surrounding hills, and boasts stunning architecture, great weather and beautiful parks.
Barcelona is also home to a host of architectural delights, with many of the late Antoni Gaudi's works scattered across the city. If you are looking to go slightly off the beaten track, Park Guell offers a mix of this famous architecture as well as panoramic views of the city, but is a bit of a walk from public transport, so be prepared with comfortable shoes and plenty of water.
There are two airports near the Circuit de Catalunya. The closest is Barcelona-El Prat Airport, which is about 40km away from the circuit, in the south of Barcelona. This airport is perfect for accessing the city of Barcelona, and travelling onward to the circuit. Alternatively Girona-Costa Brava Airport is approximately 72km to the North-west of the circuit, and offers ease of access to coastal towns along the Costa Brava.
The famous city of Barcelona is only a short distance away from the distance, so why not make the most of your trip?
Take a walk down the Gothic Quarter, or Bari Gotic, with its medieval streets filled with trendy bars, clubs and Catalan restaurants where you can try out the exquisite local cuisine. Alternatively, if fresh and diverse foods are to your liking, try dropping by La Boqueria, a famous indoor public market.
For sightseeing, there are plenty of famous tourist spots to choose from. Start high: Monjuic, a historic site located on a hill, hosting a beautiful castle and museums, and offering a fabulous view of the city from above. Chase it down with a Gaudi-themed tour. This can keep visitors occupied for a few hours, as Barcelona is home to many of the artist's designs. The most emblematic one: The Sacred Family, La Sagrada Familia. Then, Gaudi's houses: Casa Mila and Casa Batllo, both open for visitors on exclusive occasions.
Park Guell is an unmissable spot to visit, a beautiful park designed by Gaudi, hosting his museum, as well as mosaic-covered buildings, steps and sculptures. The most famous one: the dragon (El Drac).
If you are still thirsty for more, head over to La Rambla: a tree-lined pedestrian walkway in the centre of the city, known for its buildings and shops, where something is always happening.
Catalunya boasts a Mediterranean climate, with temperatures up to 20 degree centigrade in early spring. Rainfall can be relatively possible at this time of year, so we advise going prepared!
