L'Hospitalet de Llobregat

Travel Guide

Hospitalet de Llobregat is a city that’s now built into Barcelona with a lot to offer: history, architecture, nature… This tourist destination’s got it all!

Book a holiday in Hospitalet de Llobregat and discover this city in Barcelona. It takes its name from a small hospital which was built in the area at the end of the 12th century, but which also acted as a hostel, as visitors from all over the world arrived there at night fearing they might be locked out the walls of Barcelona. In the past it has been such a stepping stone for those on their way to Barcelona that in 1985, the sculptor Arranz Bravo built L'Acollidora, a piece that has become a symbol of the city and that welcomes visitors on their arrival.

If you’re a lover of history, our cheap trips to Hospitalet de Llobregat are for you. In the Hospitalet History Museum, located in Casa España, a 16th century building , you will learn all the details about the past, present and future of the city. You will also find an excellent collection of contemporary art, Renaissance religious altarpieces and even the legacy of technology that made Hospitalet de Llobregat an industrial city. You mustn’t miss the Casa La Armonía (1595), a Renaissance manor, or the Atalaya, a watch tower built in 1587 to protect the city from pirates and corsairs. As the Atalaya is located in the beautiful Can Boixeres Park, take advantage of the moment to go at your own pace and relax in one of the city’s green areas.

Of course, our package holidays to Hospitalet de Llobregat are the perfect excuse to visit the Collserola mountain. You’re just an hour away by public transport from the city centre and you can enjoy this nature park that spans more than 8,000 hectares. You’ll be amazed by the views over Barcelona as you enjoy the local flora and fauna or practise your favourite sport.

As you can see, there’s a lot more to Catalonia than the city of Barcelona. There are little known cities who have earned their place as a tourist destination in their own right, and Hospitalet de Llobregat is one of them. Come see it for yourself!
