From street performers who strut their stuff down the length of La Rambla to art and architecture that looks like it emerged from a child’s imagination, the sheer theatre of Barcelona’s streets is a source of endless fascination for kids. Throw in an abundance of child-centric attractions (including beaches, pools and parks) and this is one city that seems made for a family holiday. One of the great things about Barcelona is the inclusion of children in many apparently adult activities. Going out to eat or sipping a beer on a late summer evening at a terraza (terrace) needn’t mean leaving children with minders. Locals take their kids out all the time and it’s not unusual to see all ages, from toddlers to grandparents, enjoying the city until well into the night.
