Tips for traveling to Barcelona Spain

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Having visited Barcelona this weekend again for the second time this year, I thought it would be helpful for you guys to have some tips on what to do in Barcelona and what you can avoid. No matter if you are into seeing museums, tanning on the beach, or going from one tourist site to another there is sure to be at least one activity on here that you will enjoy!

  • ·         Walking on the boardwalk : This is best to do during the early morning at sunrise. What a way to start the day.
  • ·         Las Ramblas (note that the restaurants on this street are expensive, for cafes I recommend going on the side streets in the neighborhood so you don’t break the bank)
  • ·         El Mercado de la Boqueria: This is a foodie’s heaven. Here you will find stands from meats and cheese, fresh juice, chocolate covered strawberries, to sangria flavored gelato.
  • ·         Arc de Triumph: What’s more amazing than the arc itself might be the park attached to it. Here you can discover a tropical oasis away from the city which includes a fountain and even has a lake where you can take a paddle boat.
  • ·         Gothic quarter: Need a say more? This is a great place to get a great brush up on history.
  • ·         Park Guell: Tip of the day- look at the map and make sure you enter in the front rather than in the back of the park. Trust me- there are too many hills. Book tickets prior to entering the park online to save you time at this high tourist area.
  • ·         Sagrada Familia: Though this is currently on construction (and will be for another 20 years), this church is a must see. Make sure that you go around the entire church (back and front) in order to see the different styles of architecture throughout the building. Bonus points if you can find the Christmas tree.
  • ·         Magic Fountain: This is only going on during the weekends (particularly at night). A must see and is located close to one of the best shopping areas in the world.
  • ·         Any and every single bar: Yes there is a good amount to see here in Barcelona but remember to take your time when seeing tourist sites. Sit, relax, and take in everything you can (including food and drinks). After all that’s how the Spanish live. So why can’t you?
