The Marató: the ideal opportunity to discover Barcelona

As well as running the Zurich Marató Barcelona on Sunday 8th of May, the Catalan capital offers other activities to do during your stay in this magical city. Discover the gastronomy, architecture, art and culture, monuments and other places of interest in our metropolis that Barcelona Turisme offers to you.


If we talk about gastronomy in Barcelona, we have to talk about Catalan cuisine. Catalonia is a paradise for the senses, where Catalan cuisine is a tasty mixture of patrimony, product, territory, tradition, creativity and innovation. Together, with an infinite love for good food, discovering it through the palate is a very attractive option.

Moreover, few cities in the world have a network of markets like Barcelona: 39 food markets and 4 special non-food markets that complement this unique offer.


To relax in the hours before or after participating in Barcelona’s marathon, you can find the plan that best suits your tastes by consulting the city’s Agenda. Likewise, if you would like to visit a museum, an exhibition centre or enjoy visiting an art gallery, Barcelona is the city for you.

Also, if you want to discover Barcelona’s most emblematic buildings in more depth, you can find different patrimony tours and enjoy La Pedrera or Casa Batlló, among others.

But if what you really want is wandering through the streets of Barcelona, there are also themed routes such as the viewpoints one, the modernist or contemporary routes, being specially recommended the unknown architectural patrimony route.


Finally, you can take the opportunity to explore the city shops, from the Unique shops (exclusive shops that offer an exceptional shopping experience) to the large shopping centres.

And if you come as a family, Barcelona offers everything you need for young and old alike to enjoy the Catalan capital.

You can buy tickets for all these activities on the Barcelona Turisme website or in person at the different tourist offices in the city.
