I’ve heard countless times that “love is in the air” when you go to Barcelona and after spending the last summer there with my partner, I totally agree. While Paris may have the reputation of the “city of love”, many travelers will be pleasantly surprised by the romantic charms of its Spanish counterpart. If you and your loved one are planning a romantic European getaway, then you should know that there are many romantic places to see in Barcelona for couples on any type of budget.
Here are 7 romantic places to see in Barcelona to entice you and your special someone to visit the Catalonian capital:
1. Plaza de España
This gorgeous plaza which sits in the middle of Barcelona will make you want to confess your love to the world. We walked through there in the evening by chance and it was hard not to be blown away by its beauty. The gorgeous Ciutadella fortress and the beautiful Venetian towers create the atmosphere of a fairy tale. The long walking street with hundreds of shops start here as well, making it a perfect place to buy a souvenir to remember about your romantic getaway.
