The whole package was great. When we arrived at the hotel we were handed the tickets for the match. We didn\'t pay any extra for the seats and still had a great view. We stayed at the Barcelona Princess. It was a bit further out of the city but really easy to get to on the metro or the city sightseeing bus which stopped at the door. Hotel was great - minibar was free and refilled every day. Payed for an extra night and glad we did as there is so much to do in Barcelona. Overall my boyfriend loved his 21st birthday trip and is now planning another.

Tip: Get a T-10 metro card. It gets you 10 journeys for 10 euro (one journey is 2.25). It is also transferable between people. Just put it in the machine and pass it to the next person

Really pleased with everything, the package I bought was at a reasonable price, the atmosphere was out of this world, the staff were lovely and very helpful regarding collecting our tickets, as a injured war veteran of Iraq this was my first trip aboard after what happened to, it was just what the doctor ordered and the city of Barcelona was beautiful plenty to do and see. 12 out of 10 for the overall experience.

Tip: Try and learn some simple Spanish. I did and the locals seemed to appreciate the effort.

The entire package was fantastic and everything went exactly as planned - even the match tickets arrived early! The hotel was fine for our needs and no complaints. The flight was as expected from Easyjet or budget airlines, not great but it got us to the match and thats all that mattered. Overall a fantastic weekend for me and my son to celebrate his 18th birthday. PS - the seats at the Nou Camp were outstanding

Tip: Yes, go to Dunnes Bar in Barcelona for the "warm-up" great lively place for all sports fans.

Origins

FC Barcelona was founded in 29 November 1899 by the Swiss Hans Kamper. As a 22-year-old he was actually on his way to Africa where his plan was to help his uncle set up a trading company in sugar. However, he ended up staying in Barcelona. He loved football and started, together with some English and Swiss supporters, the “Barcelona Football Club” following his advert in the sports magazine Los Deportes.

Kamper, who later changed his name to Joan Gamper, chose blue and purple as the club colours and appointed himself as the first captain of the team. He played 48 games between 1899 and 1903, in which he scored more than 100 goals. Thereafter he was president for many years and the driving force behind the continued growth and development of the club. He was less fortunate in his private life. Plagued by personal and financial problems, he committed suicide on July 30, 1930. As a tribute to the founder of the club, FC Barcelona still plays the annual opening game of the season for the Joan Gamper Trophy.

More Than Football, More Than a Club
FC Barcelona is best known for the quality of its football, but Barça is more than just a football club. FC Barcelona is an all-sport club with professional, international top teams in basketball, handball, futsal (5-a-side) and field roller hockey. These are all very popular sports in Spain. Furthermore, the club still has sections for amateur wheelchair basketball, athletics, rugby, baseball, volleyball, hockey, ice hockey and figure skating.

Besides the Nou Camp stadium, the club posses the adjacent Miniestadi, a stadium with a capacity of 15,000 spectators, where Barça B, Barça C, and sometimes the Barça youth team play their games. The basketball, handball and indoor football teams play their games in their own stadium, the Palau Blaugrana, which is located near the Nou Camp and has a capacity of over 7,000 spectators. Besides this, there is also a skating track on the Barça complex.

The slogan ‘més que un club’ - more than a club - indicates that it goes further than being just a sports club. The slogan shows that FC Barcelona stands as a deeply rooted symbol of Catalan independence and supports socio-political themes such as education, art and culture. FC Barcelona is, both in Catalonia and abroad, very active in social and humanitarian development.

The Logo Explained
The logo of FC Barcelona as we know it today was designed by Carles Coma Mala in 1910. He was a player for the club between 1903 and 1912, and also a medical student and gifted artist. He won a competition organized by the club to design a new club logo.

Barcelona Logo
The logo was designed by Carles Comamala.

Since then, the ‘escudo’ has often been redesigned (most recently in 2002), but its core has not changed. The shape is still that of an "olla", a traditional Catalan food pot. The red cross on the white space on the upper left section is the Cross of Saint Jordi, the patron saint of Catalonia.

The section with the red-yellow strokes symbolizes the ‘senyera’, the traditional flag of Barcelona and Catalonia. The letters F.C.B. below are, of course, the initials of the club. The football in the lower section stands for the main sport in Barcelona, set on a background of blue and purple, the team colors.

Stadium Tour & Museum
The Stadium Tour is called the “Nou Camp Experience” by the club, and they are right as it includes a visit to the Barça Museum which is quite an experience. The museum is the most visited museum in the country! From the players’ dressing rooms to the press room, the VIP box, the thrilling player tunnel and the pitch, no part of the behind-the-scenes space remains a secret.

The museum is not just a collection of great prizes, with its 111-year history on display, but there are also several notable personal relics of players and coaches who were once active for the club. Tickets for the stadium and museum tour can easily be added online when booking your trip to FC Barcelona football on our website.

What Does “Cule” Mean?
Barça fans in Spain are generally referred to as “Cules”. It literally means “ass” or “butt”. This originates far back in the long history of the club. Between 1909 and 1922, FC Barcelona played its home matches in the L'Escopidora stadium.

Supporters who could not afford the ticket would often climb and sit on the walls that surrounded the pitch, to make sure they could see the game. Only their backsides were visible to passers-by outside the stadium, who gave them the nickname “Cules”.

Nou Camp
The Nou Camp - literally meaning "new field" - was opened on September 24, 1957 with a match between FC Barcelona and Legia Warsaw (4-2). The stadium has a capacity of 99,354 spectators and is 48 metres high; the field has a dimension of 105 x 68 metres. The Museum of FC Barcelona and the shop are located in the same complex. Besides football matches, pop concerts are also regularly held in the Nou Camp and on November 17, 1982 Pope John Paul II held a Mass in the stadium for 120,000 people.

Total Football
Dutch coach Rinus Michels introduced the so-called ‘total football’ style of play at Barcelona. A few years later the Dutch national team would, under the supervision of Michels, conquer the world with this distinctive style. It is extraordinary to see that this style of play is still fundamental to the way Barcelona plays today.

Canto del Barça (hymn)
For every home game the Barcelona fans passionately sing the anthem. This is always a very impressive moment. Memorise the words so that you can join almost 100,000 other fans singing "El Canto”!

 

Tot el camp, és un clam, (The entire field is a clamour)
som la gent blaugrana, (we are the Blaugrana people)
tant se val d'on venim, (no matter where we come from)
si del sud o del nord, (be it south or north)
ara estem d'acord, estem d'acord, (now we all agree, we all agree)
una bandera ens agermana. (a flag unites us in brotherhood) Blaugrana al vent, (Blaugrana with the wind)
un crit valent, (a valiant cry)
tenim un nom, el sap tothom: (we have a name everyone knows)
Barça! Barça! Barça! (Barça! Barça! Barça!)
Jugadors, seguidors, (Players, supporters)
tots units fem força. (all together we are strong)
Són molts anys plens d'afanys, (Many years full of zeal)
són molts gols que hem cridat, (many goals we have screamed)
i s'ha demostrat, s'ha demostrat, (and it's proven, it's proven)
que mai ningú no ens podrà tòrcer. (no-one will ever beat us)
Blaugrana al vent, (Blaugrana with the wind)
un crit valent, (a valiant cry)
tenim un nom, el sap tothom: (we have a name everyone knows)
Barça! Barça! Barça! (Barça! Barça! Barça!)

Barcelona

Gerard Piqué’s city happens to be one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde in Europe. It is also one of the most popular destinations for European tourists, with almost 30 million flocking here every year to laze on its beaches and marvel at its beauty. This puts it at number 4 on the list of most-visited cities in the European Union. It’s not hard to figure out why, given its rich cultural heritage, gastronomy, balmy temperatures and permanent holiday atmosphere.

City info

Gerard Piqué’s city happens to be one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde in Europe. It is also one of the most popular destinations for European tourists, with almost 30 million flocking here every year to laze on its beaches and marvel at its beauty. This puts it at number 4 on the list of most-visited cities in the European Union. It’s not hard to figure out why, given its rich cultural heritage, gastronomy, balmy temperatures and permanent holiday atmosphere.

Barcelona: following in the steps of Gaudí

The capital of Catalunya has a particularly rich patrimony, and is dominated by the colourful, phantasmagorical architectural works of Gaudí. The medieval buildings of the Barrio Gótico, the grand boulevards of the modernist Eixample and the traditional village feel of Gràcia all exert a powerful charm that draws visitors year on year.

Where to start exploring the city’s artistic and architectural wonders?

An obligatory stopping point is the Sagrada Familia (Metro L2 and L5, Sagrada Familia stop), Gaudí’s Gothic-influenced cathedral and great emblem of the Catalan capital. It is saturated with symbols worked in superb detail, its basilica endlessly enthralling to behold. The project is so enormous that it still isn’t finished 120 years after the first stone was laid. Word is that it’s almost done now – but don’t hold your breath!

 

About fifteen minutes walk away you’ll find another Gaudí work, the Casa Milà (metro L3 and L5, Diagonal stop), commonly known as “La Pedrera”.  It is a monumental work of Catalan modernism dating from the beginning of the 19th century, and has a deserving place on the UNESCO World Heritage list. So does the eccentric Parc Güell (bus 24 and 92), another Gaudí creation which is without doubt the most visited park in the city.

Don’t worry – if architecture isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other treasures to discover. Lovers of surrealism and cubism should take themselves to the Fondation Joan Miró and the Pablo Picasso Museum, which display the works of the two of Spain’s greatest painters.  

Eating out in Barcelona

While you’ll find all the classic Spanish dishes here, Catalunya has a reputation for producing the country’s best cuisine. Between tradition and innovation Catalan gastronomy balances the homely and comforting with the frankly surprising.

If you like tapas, we strongly recommend going to Bar Cañete situated on Carrer de la Unió, an adjacent street to the famous Ramblas (metro L3, Liceu stop). Alternatively, at a more affordable price, sample the tapas of d’E58 on the Rambla de Poblenou (metro L4 Poble Nou or Llacuna stops).

Several Basque establishments also offer a vast selection of lip-smacking “pintxos”. The best can be found at Euskal Etxea, in the heart of the Born area (metro L4 Jaume I or Barceloneta stops). 

Shopping under the sun

Did you know that Zara, Mango, Desigual, Massimo Dutti and Springfield are all Spanish? While not all of them are Catalan, their collections display a particular type of elegance shared by the entire Iberian Peninsula.

The Passeig de Gràcia (metro L2, L3 and L4, Passeig de Gràcia stop), like the French Champs-Elysées, hosts the luxury boutiques of the great European and international fashion houses. Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Stella McCartney, Jimmy Choo – a veritable paradise if your wallet is well padded!

On the Carrer de Pelai you’ll find classic ready-to-wear fashions, including Bershka, Stradivarius, Zara, C&A, Celio, and Mango. One advantage is that they are all concentrated on the same street. Another main shopping avenue is the Portal de l’Àngel which has many of the above-mentioned shops, as well as Benetton, Massimo Dutti, El Corte Inglés, H&M, Pull&Bear, Levi’s, Desigual, Intimissimi, Jack&Jones and Women’s Secret. These commercial arteries branch off from the Plaça Catalunya (metro L1 and L3, Plaça Catalunya stop), around which many other brands have also made their home.

For rainy days (of which there are thankfully few!) you can also feed your addiction in numerous shopping centres. The Diagonal MarLes Glòries and Maremagnum centres are among the biggest, but there are plenty of others throughout the city. 

In general, both shopping centres and the shops of big international brands are open every day from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 9pm. Independent boutiques often open from 10am to 1.30pm and again from 4.30pm/5pm to 8.30/9pm to make space for the traditional Spanish siesta. 

Getting around in Barcelona

The public transport system in Barcelona is extensive and well connected. A single ticket costs €2.20 and allows you to travel around the centre of Barcelona by bus, metro or tram for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

If you plan to take public transport regularly, it will work out cheaper for you to buy the T 10, a travel card that gives you ten journeys for €10.20 (so about €1 per trip – 50% less than a single ticket!). The card isn’t personalised, so more than one person can share it.

You can use the Hola BCN! travel card for all metro lines, tram lines, TMB buses, and trains (within zone 1), as well as the Montjuïc funicular, for the number of days chosen (2, 3, 4 or 5 days), again at very reasonable prices. It can even include a return ticket between the airport and the city-centre.

The Barcelona metropolitan transport website, TMB, enables you to find the best route for your journey, as well as consult an interactive map of public transport, the timetable of each line, and, even better, get status updates.

Barcelona at night

Barcelona is lively both day and night and is often ranked among the top European party cities. Catalans eat late, drink late and go out late. Don’t be surprised to find restaurants still shut at 8pm, bars empty at 9pm and clubs with doors closed at midnight!

In the happening neighbourhoods of the Born and Barrio Gótico, as well as in the edgier Raval, you’ll find many tapas bars and lively cocktail bars. The atmosphere is young, vibrant and relaxed. In the more eccentric Gràcia, you’ll find more intimate, boho-arty locales, while Poble Nou is populated with large nightclubs and bars attracting indie rock fans. Villa Olímpica on the seafront hosts a number of trendy lounge bars and clubs with open-air sections.

Our recommendations 

- The Caribbean Club (Raval, metro L1 and L3 Catalunya stop) located in the warren of the Raval district. Decent prices and excellent cocktails.

El Bosc de les Fades (Barrio Gótico, metro L3 Drassanes stop): a highly unusual bar filled with trees and fairies to create a world of enchantment.

- Razzmatazz (Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica, metro L4 Bogatell or Poble Nou stops and L1 Marina stop) is a gigantic complex which combines a main concert venue with a multi-room club. Its cutting edge programming draws fans of all types of electronic music, from electro pop to tech house.

- The Apolo (Poble Sec, metro L2 and L3 Parallel stop) is a concert venue and über cool club where top DJs and the crème de la crème of the international indie-rock scene come to perform. There are very popular theme nights on Mondays (“Nasty Monday”), Tuesdays (“Crappy Tuesday”) and Wednesdays (“Cupcake 80”).

- The Macarena (Barrio Gótico, metro L3 Liceu or Drassanes stop) is an intimate club which specialises in underground electro. It’s free entry for women, and is about €5 for men.
