GREAT THINGS TO DO IN BARCELONA...!!!


It will not be difficult for you to find interesting things to do in Barcelona. Lose yourself in the medieval labyrinth of the Gothic quarter and El Born, sit on a terrace to take a horchata, drop by any art gallery and look up so as not to miss a single detail of the modernist heritage that floods the streets of the city like this Take note and discover how great it can be to visit Barcelona on the next trip you have as a family, we begin...

  • Park Güell

Located on a hill at the north end of the Gracia neighborhood, this park is another piece of the set of masterpieces that Gaudí bequeathed to Barcelona. Green and decorated like a fantastic symphony, Park Güell is the perfect place to take a walk, relax and get a closer look at the work of the genius. Now you have to pay to visit the monumental area (yes, that where the famous lizard and the beautiful room of the columns are), but you can't miss it.

  • Temple of the Holy Family

To call the Holy Family church would be an understatement. Projected by Gaudí's visionary genius more than a century ago, it is still under construction. But don't worry, they are going at a good pace. It is a WORK OF ART with capital letters that transports you to a world of fable. A forest of columns full of light and color that will leave you with wide eyes. If you can, go up to one of the towers to enjoy the views while you continue assimilating the curious combination of spirituality and nature that come together in this temple.

  • Gothic Quarter

Among the main things to do in Barcelona to deepen your roots and your heart, is walking through the Gothic Quarter. A large medieval stone maze in which the streets are narrow and reminiscent of times past. Perfect for a leisurely stroll, it also offers many beautiful shops. Enter the spectacular Cathedral of Santa Eulalia (its cloister is fabulous and the views from the roof even better. Dream in Plaza del Rey, go shopping in Portal de l'Angel and Portaferrissa. Then have a chocolate with churros in any " farm ”on Petritxol street.

  • Las Ramblas

  Las Ramblas go from the iconic Plaza de Catalunya to the Christopher Columbus monument, at the foot of the sea and are just over 1 kilometer long. Completely pedestrian today, the hordes of tourists and the terraces have invaded them. But still it is still one of the most picturesque places to see in Barcelona and we recommend that you take a tour to see the Miró mosaic, the flower stalls, the street artists and the atmosphere.

  • Casa Milà (La Pedrera)

  It will be difficult for you to shut your mouth in front of so much incredible modernist building. This artistic movement set its mark on the city in fire, like nowhere else in the world. Among so much wonder to see in Barcelona, we recommend a visit to La Pedrera, another of Gaudí's wonders. White and shining in the sun, it will not leave you indifferent. Enter its interior, immerse yourself in the multicolored light of its interior patios, discover how the Catalan bourgeoisie lived at the beginning of the century and enjoy the panorama from its whimsical terrace.

  • Picasso museum

You will have to write down the visit to his museum in your list of things to do in Barcelona. Although born in Malaga, the painter Pablo Picasso spent so much time in Barcelona that he considered it his adoptive city. Here he formed and befriended other contemporary artists. Perhaps that is why Barcelona has one of the largest collections of works by Picasso in the world. And if this were not enough, the Picasso Museum is in a medieval palace in the heart of the Born district, one of the oldest parts of the city.
