About the creator
Born and raised in Barcelona, I will make you catch the essence of this beautiful city!
I am a multilingual person (español, français, English, italiano, 日本語), I like meeting new people and I love traveling.
The oldest place in Barcelona. Gòtic (Gothic) is a district with its own particular style. You can find roman architecture as well as Gothic (streets, cathedrals, etc.). Walking randomly in its streets by day is a very nice experience.
Close to the the Gothic district, el Born has become a very trendy place to go for shopping or eating. There are beautiful old cathedrals/churches as well.
This part of Barcelona is close to the beach. You can eat, drink, buy souvenirs and relax in the sand while the sun goes down.
Paseig de gràcia
This street is famous by many things: Gaudi architecture, luxury shopping and because it goes up to down until the famous Plaça Catalunya. Near Plaça Catalunya you have 'Les Rambles' which is very well known for its performing street artists.
The Raval is a very young neighborhood. It's a multicultural place where you can enjoy eating morocan pastry, shopping in second-hand shops, buying a bollywood movie or watching the skaters practice near the Contemporary Art Museum. Near this area you have Paralel avenue, next to where you can enjoy eating and drinking in very nice and cheap tapas/pinxos bars.
Real nightlife in Barcelona
There are many famous and luxuous clubs in Barcelona like Sutton, Opium or Shoko, but if you want to meet locals you need to know where to go.
Depending on what you like you can enjoy clubs near the Paralel, in the Raval, in the Eixample (for gay/lesbian/bisexuals), in Gràcia, etc. And most of the time the events are free.
This catalan neighborhood has a very special style. If you are lucky (summertime) you can enjoy human tower events from the neighborhood team and the popular event where all the neighborhood competes for the coolest street decorations.
You can enjoy good bars where to have a drink and eat peacefully while watching people pass by. There are some shopping streets also.
There is no need for an explanation here.
Probably the most well-known place in Barcelona. You need to get inside it to understand why.
You can also visit the St. Pau Hospital famous for its beautiful architecture.
That's where Barça plays. You also have a museum with a lot of items from the Barcelona Football Club history. You also have an official shop (but there are more in Barcelona). The match tickets may be expensive depending on the team barça is playing against (but not impossible to reserve).
There is another team in Barcelona called 'Espanyol'. (You can also reserve tickets).
Very famous place in Barcelona with nice views to the city. But there is a secret place from where you can have a better view, especially by night.
There are great areas in upper Barcelona with nice typical food/drink (tapas, orxata).
Trip to Girona
There is a small paradise 30 minutes away from Barcelona. Peaceful, romantic, with good restaurants/bars and with its own roman history.
You can also visit the Dalí Museum in the near city of Figueres.
Trip to Montserrat
You cannot leave Barcelona without visiting this unique rock formations. There is also an old Monastery where a famous manuscript containing some late medieval songs was written in the 14th century.
One day in Port Aventura
This park was awarded as one of the best amusement parks in Europe (many attractions have been awarded as well).
Try Europe's tallest roller coaster Shambala or walk from Mexico to China amongst restaurants and souvenir shops.
Suitable for kids as well (but best if you come with friends/lover).
*there is another amusement park in Barcelona Tibidabo (but not as fun and cool as Port Aventura).
