- CULTURE: Le Méridien’s Unlock Art programme works with cultural centres around the world to offer inspiring local experiences. Le Méridien Barcelona’s Unlock Partner is Palau Güell, a magnificent mansion designed by Gaudí. Find inspiration in his architectural and artistic genius.
- CUISINE: get a caffeine kick from the 100% Arabica Illy coffee in the hotel’s own Longitude Bar. Fuel up with a savoury éclair then head out for a taste of the true Barcelona: visit the nearby La Boquería, one of the world’s greatest food markets, where the sights, sounds and aromas will stimulate your own culinary creativity.
