If you want to enjoy the Mediterranean essence, the sun, the beach, the seaside walks, and the sunsets, the Maresme, the Garraf, and the Baix Llobregat will enchant you. How about rounding off the days at the beach with activities that will leave the little ones in the family wide-eyed with wonder?


In Vilanova i la Geltrú, you can’t miss the Catalonia Railway Museum, full of locomotives and historic wagons. To complete the railway experience, you can head to Ribes Roges Beach and take a ride on its miniature train.

In the Maresme, after a day of splashing around, we recommend climbing up to Burriac Castle, an impressive lookout over the Mediterranean.

In the Baix Llobregat, one of the most interesting activities to do with children is visiting the Gavà Mines Archaeological Park, a unique place in Europe where you will take a journey back in time.


If you are passionate about the mountains, nature, the outdoors, and hiking, you can’t miss the Berguedà region, in the north of the province. To complete your mountain hikes, we suggest 3 places to enjoy with your family. Let’s go!

Are there dinosaur experts at home? You must visit the Fumanya Dinosaur Interpretation Center, where you can observe footprints, eggs, and sauropod bones. Incredible!

Another must-do activity is a trip on the Cement Train, in the Pobla de Lillet, a centenary railway gem. Take the opportunity to visit the Artigas Gardens by Gaudí and the Cement Museum.

How about putting on a helmet and entering the Riutort oil mine? Be careful, the walls ooze oil, and you might come across a bat.


In the center of the province of Barcelona, the regions of Osona, Moianès, Bages, and l’Anoia offer prehistory, nature, and wonderful landscapes. Here are 3 ideas to do with children that are a sure bet!

Do you want to experience a unique natural phenomenon in the world? You should visit the Cardona Salt Mountain, which grows every time it rains. You will go down to 86 meters, a real journey to the depths of the earth!

Do you want to learn to juggle in the middle of nature? At the Circus in the Feixes, in Copons, you will become real circus artists.

And if you want to visit one of the most unique castles in Catalonia, a short walk from Castellcir will take you to the foot of Popa Castle, a medieval building in the shape of a ship.

As you can see, Barcelona is much more, and you can enjoy all these experiences and many more… be sure to check out the website with all the proposals.
