Barcelona is rich in culture and history so sightseers should be well catered for in this great city. Read our mini-guide below and you’ll see there is a lot to do on a budget that is suitable for nearly everyone.
Our top choice would have to be to explore the city. Some of the most famous architecture in the city was designed by Antonio Gaudi. Easily the most famous buildings can be found along the Passieg De Gracia which contains such buildings like La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.
Alternatively you could go down to the Parc Guell, again designed by Antonio Guadi. After seeing these great buildings you should go to the arguably the best building by him, the Sagrada Familia. It is a huge but unfinished temple that is well worth a look.
How about Teatre Grec. Once you have wandered around there you should head up to the Fundaló Joan Miró which is a great museum that has loads of things to look at: 225 paintings, 150 sculptures and some graphic pieces made by the Spanish surrealist artist.
For the family, the Zoo in Parc Citudella is easily entertainment for an entire day. Guided tours are available, alongside educational courses based on Zoology for adults and 20 different types of diversionary workshops for children. The zoo is very popular with over 50,000 children visiting the zoo each year, hence the reason why the zoo has such an emphasis on education.
Not so perfect for families rather more for the 18-30’s are the clubs that Barcelona prides itself on. Clubs and bars are typically open till 3am so there isn’t a rush and you can freely wander around and move to different clubs. Most are your typical pop-blaring clubs but some are different are certainly worth visiting. One such example would be the l’arquer that even has some lanes for archery and is well known for being a novelty bar.
Into something a bit more energetic,, why not climb up the mountain Montjuïc. There are great views on the way up and scattered along the path are the 1992 Olympic Games buildings such as the Santiago Calatrav’s Olympic needle. All in all it is a great place to visit and you are rewarded with such great views both on the way and at the top.
As you can see Barcelona is a great city with a large amount of things to do regardless of your age and interests. A lot of the things are completely free and the others are quite cheap regardless. We hope you enjoy your visit.
