How to Spend a Rainy Day in Barcelona
Sunny Barcelona may seem like the ideal warm weather destination, but downpours do hit the Catalonian capital on occasion. There’s no need to get caught short though; make the most of even wet weather with these rainy-day attractions.
- Take shelter at Sagrada Familia or Montserrat Monastery; get out of the rain faster with skip-the-line admission tickets.
- See the city from a sightseeing bus—hop-on-hop-off options let you jump off and explore on foot when the rain clears.
- Watch a flamenco performance at a traditional tablao; local institutions such as Tablao Cordobes and Tablao de Carmen offer dinner and drinks packages.
- Get out of the rain during a behind-the-scenes Camp Nou stadium and museum tour.
- Soak up the city’s art scene without getting soaked at Gaudi’s Casa Batlló or La Pedrera.
- Visit top Barcelona museums such as Museu Picasso, Fundació Joan Miró, and the National Art Museum of Catalonia with a museum pass.
- Hone your culinary skills during a cooking class or explore the covered La Boqueria Market.
