Discover El-Prat-De-Llobregat and surroundings by car 

Barcelona is the nearest and biggest destination to El-Prat. From incredible architecture of buildings like the Sagrada Familia to Barceloneta beach and no less than 8 World Heritage Sites, Barcelona definitely deserves a visit. 

On from Barcelona why not explore the Costa Maresme, just an hour by car. Often overlooked in favour for the more touristy Costa Brava, Maresme is home to kilometres of sandy beaches, pretty fishing towns and great restaurants. Special mention goes to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, in the Bay of Biscay. Walk the worm-thin 231-step passageway across the crag to the island that the 10th century church sits upon. If the scenery looks familiar, it was used as a backdrop during several scenes of Game of Thrones. 

From Barcelona you can travel to the islands of Ibiza and Mallorca via car ferry, or travel south along the coastline to Valencia (350 kilometres).
