Top 5 things to do in Barcelona

1.      Visit the Sagrada Familia

Gaudi’s unfinished cathedral has become a true symbol of the Catalan capitol. The unusual building is the most attractive tourist attraction in Barcelona with over 3 million visits per year, and it’s easy to see why. Gaudi tragically passed away before completing the building, and the money charged to enter the cathedral is actually used to help finance the construction. 

2.      Take a stroll in Park Guell

One of the most beautiful parks in the city Park Guell has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a definite must see in Barcelona. Situated on top of a hill, it takes a bit of a walk to get there but conveniently placed escalators make getting there that much easier.

3.      Admire Casa Batllo

Situated in the well-known Paseig de Gracia Street, this former apartment block turned into a stunning modernist building is one of the best examples of Gaudi’s work in Barcelona.

4.      Eat well at Mercado de la Boqueria

Barcelona’s renowned food market in Las Ramblas is the perfect place to get a taste of some of the best products in Catalonia. Buzzing and nearly always packed, it’s easy to get lost in the variety of colours and aromas.  

5.      Climp to the top Montjuic Hill 

The main attraction here is undoubtedly the Montjuic castle, a former defensive point of the city which can be reached by cable car. The top offers the most breathtaking views of Barcelona, and is the ideal spot for photography lovers.
