Barcelona area in July - need some good advice

We are 10 persons, adults and boys from 13 to 16, going to Barcelona for 17 days in July. We plan to stay approx. one week in Barcelona, close to the sea. The rest of the time we'd like to stay in a nearby village (up north?) and also do some hiking in the mountains. Where would the best place to go hiking be?

Would appreciate some advise on what to do in Barcelona both for adults and the teenage-boys. As for adults we'd like to do a cookery course (tapas & spanish specialities) and visit a good wineestate.

We'd love to have suggestions on other things to do in the area as well (things that are not necessarily what all tourists do/see).

We are considering renting a house/apartment for some of the time, but are also open for hotelsuggestions close to the sea but also with pool (doesn''t have to be the most expensive places).

You're thinking to rent a car of using public transport? (this is an important point)?

and about hiking mountains....are you thinking in "highh" mountains or not necessary??

A lovely place, but with high mountains it could be Aiguastortes National Park or Cadi-Moixero Parc, for instance.....


There are also market routes if you prefer :



But there are also the area of Garrotxa (sleepy volcanoes) and not very high mountains:


Ar at the other side of Catalonia : the Ports de Besseit:

Thanks very much! Will check out the "mountain-links" you've sent.

We do not have plans for renting a car while in Barcelona. Would mainly like to use public transport, but are open to rent when going outside of Barcelona, if necessary.
