Map of Petit Palace Opera Garden

The Petit Palace Opera Garden is located in a historic building on a side street in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. The hotel is easy walking distance from both the opera house and Las Ramblas, the bustling pedestrian-friendly street known for shopping. Hotel guests have easy access to La Boqueria market and Passeig de Gracia for upscale shopping. Attractions a little further away can be reached by utilizing the Liceu Metro station near the hotel. The Aerobus also stops a short distance from the hotel and offers direct access to Barcelona International Airport (a much cheaper alternative than a taxi).

Barcelona -- a cosmopolitan hub for arts, culture, and nightlife -- is the second largest city in Spain and the capital of Catalonia. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
