Barcelona is a city on the coast of northeastern Spain.
It is the capital and largest city of the autonomous
community of Catalonia, as well as the second-most
populous municipality of Spain. As far as cities go,
Barcelona is the world’s most beautiful city.

It is a city by the sea yet envelope with wooded mountains, with
gorgeous architecture, beautiful churches, and a
pedestrian thoroughfare that is one of the prettiest
you will ever see. It is one of the largest metropolises
on the Mediterranean Sea, located on the coast
between the mouths of rivers Llobregat and Besos and
bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola
mountain range.

The city is incredibly renowned for
the architectural works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís
Domènech I Montaner, which have been designated
UNESCO World Heritage Site. Barcelona contains both
the authentic history and the wibbly bizarre. The city
by the sea sums to attract all types: the adventurer,
the couple, the parties, the cultural lover, and more
with an almost overwhelming variety of things to do.
Touring the architecture of Catalan architect Antoni
Gaudi is the reason to visit Barcelona.

Besides Gaudi’s art, there are different neighborhoods and attractions
to explore. Barcelona is a vibrant multicultural city
with a good variety of clothes, styles, and heritage
which make it an important cultural center a major
tourist destination. The city is also known for

arranging the 1992 Summer Olympics as well as world-
class conferences and expositions and also many

international sports tournaments. The city has a
maritime Mediterranean Sea climate with mild winters
and warm to hot summers, while the rainiest seasons

are autumn and spring. So the best time to visit
Barcelona is from May to June. Three days are enough
to visit the tourist attractions in Barcelona. The best
area to stay in Barcelona is Barrio Gotico ( the Gothic
Quarter). This is the historical and geographical heart of
the city and one of the best places to stay in n
Barcelona if you want to want to be close to all
important landmarks, attractions, and activities.
Barcelona, to me, is a giant theme park with a Spanish
flair where you can cross a street and be transported
from the present into a distant past. Traveling to
Barcelona by plane is probably the most common way
to get to the city.

The city’s El Prat Airport, which is
located outside the city center and reachable by metro
in around half an hour, receives local Spanish,
European as well as international flights. If, however,
you are in Spain or neighboring countries then travel
by bus or rail is an alternative too. A walking tour is
one of the best ways to explore the neighborhoods
and attractions. It will take only 3hours.

I will recommend taking a half-day for this tour so you can
really get to know the city. You can divide your
walking tour into two days to reduce your walking.

Things to do in Barcelona-


This architectural masterpiece combines fantasy
and reality. Anton Gaudi’s magnificent basilica
combines multiple architectural styles including Art

Nouveau, Catalan Modernism and Spanish Late-
Gothic. Both the interior and exterior look like

something out of a dream and will leave you
awestruck. While the church is still unfinished, it’s
one of the premier tourist attractions in Barcelona.

Upon its completion, La Sagrada Família will
consist of three major facades. The Passion façade
and Nativity façade are already complete, while
the Glory façade is still under construction. The
church boasts incredible spires (ten of which still
need to be completed), amazing towers, portals,
chapels and magnificent stained glass. Even
though it’s scheduled to be completed in 2026,
visitors can explore the gorgeous structure. Just
make sure to book your admission tickets in

    The Gothic Quarter – “Barrio Gotico” in Spanish &
    “Bari Gotic” in Catalan – is an absolute must-visit
    on your trip to Barcelona. It is the oldest district in
    Barcelona and with all its narrow streets, squares
    , and famous gothic architecture buildings it is a
    great place to explore on foot. And when you’re
    ready for a break, there are plenty of cafes to
    grab a drink or a bite to eat in the area.
    The Palace of Catalan Music is magnificent, to say
    the least. This beautifully designed auditorium is
    picture-perfect with a mosaic of stained glass and
    eccentric chandeliers. It’s an incredible venue to
    watch an array of choral, orchestral, and opera
    musical performances. While you’re in Barcelona,
    it’s definitely worth taking a tour of the Palace.
    During the day the concert hall is magnificent, but
    it’s after dark that it truly comes alive, especially
    when there’s a show. It’s one of the top things to
    do in Barcelona at night. If you’re able, it is worth
    getting tickets to watch one of the concerts hosted

throughout the year. The venue boasts
phenomenal acoustics, and there’s no better place
to watch the tale of the Spanish gypsy girl,

    Not far from the central Placa de Catalunya,
    explore another of Gaudi’s masterpieces with a
    tour of Casa Batlló. This UNESCO World Heritage
    Site is absolutely gorgeous and makes for
    stunning photographs. Designed without any
    straight lines, this apartment block has a uniquely
    organic feel to it. The exterior is covered in shards
    of stained glass, giving the building a water-like
    feel. The roof of the building is one of the most
    whimsical aspects which are designed like the
    scales of a dragon. The interior is just as unique
    with a stunning mushroom-shaped fireplace that’s
    the perfect place to warm up in colder months. Be
    sure to grab your skip the line tickets and avoid
    wasting time queuing outside this stunning
    If you asked any locals about what to do in
    Barcelona, Mercat de La Boqueria would be at the
    top of their list. The market was started in the 1200s
    and has since become a popular center. It’s made
    up of over 200 stands, and foodies will be
    delighted by all that La Boqueria has to offer.
    Located in Barcelona’s city center, it’s the perfect
    place to buy some groceries, have a meal or to
    immerse yourself in the local culture. The market
    sees over 45,000 visitors daily and is a delight for

the senses. After exploring, you’ll even be able to
cool off with a beer at one of the market’s bars.

    Strolling through Las Ramblas is an essential
    Barcelona experience. The extensive pedestrian
    boulevard is located in the heart of the bustling
    city and is Barcelona’s most famous street. You’ll
    find a mixture of both tourists and locals
    exploring the mile-long avenue. This street is full
    of some of the best Barcelona things to do. Along
    the boulevard, you’ll find various talented human
    statues and Spanish artists (who will happily draw
    your portrait or caricature). There are also plenty
    of shops and restaurants and it’s the perfect place
    to enjoy some sangria while people watching.
    It is probably the most whimsical and colorful
    Gaudi’s works in Barcelona. You’ll find a couple of
    gingerbread-looking houses and modern designs
    with pillars. Parc Guell is a UNESCO World
    Heritage Site. As with Bunkers del Carmel, you
    also need to climb up a hill to get here. Definitely,
    buy tickets online as it gets busy. If you’d like to
    skip the lines and get a personalized tour, then
    consider the Park Guell Tour Guided Walking Tour
    by Getting Your Guide. You’ll stroll around the park
    with a live guide and discover the story behind the
    quirky structures.

This is one of the best places to get a good view of
the entire city. There is a bit of a climb to get to the
top of the bunker, but the views are so worth it! If
you like, you can take snacks and a blanket with

you so you can it and relax while admiring the
view. Also, this is a great place to watch the

    This gorgeous park is designed by none other
    than Gaudi. Actually, the entire park wasn’t
    designed by Gaudi – just the waterfall below,
    known as the Cascada Monumental. It is actually
    the only natural environment in the entire city! Go
    for a stroll and sit back for a moment. You will
    need the rest to take on the climbs coming up. In
    the 18th century, this park was used as a prison.
    When most people think of beaches in Barcelona,
    Barceloneta is probably the first that comes to
    mind. From drummers to sand-artists to singing
    donut salesmen, it may just be Barcelona’s dirtiest,
    most crowded, and most touristy stretch of sand.
    However, that just means it’s also the most
    entertaining. Without a doubt, there’s always
    something going on at Barcelona’s most famous
    beach. Plus, it’s got some great seafood eateries
    along the shore in the eponymous Barceloneta
    neighborhood, a onetime fishermen’s quarter that
    retains its old-world charm.

Tourism continues to surge in this culturally colorful
city on the coast of Spain- Barcelona’s sample
architectural, artistic and culinary experiences make it
easy to understand why. There is a lot to love about
Barcelona. Messi and Neymar, Gaudi and the Barri
Gòtic, booming waterfront and shopping of all
varieties, tapas and sangria in corner cafes and

courtyards, legendary nightlife and many more.
Barcelona has something to offer for virtually every
visitor traveling on any budget.
Hope you have a nice time there!
