Best things to do in Barcelona and sightseeing in Barcelona

La Rambla - Barcelona

A local market where local people and tourists visit. You can get to taste lots of local foods from sweets to pizza. There is a very fancy egg hut that I find it fancy :)

La Rambla is the busiest tourist streets of Barcelona and a great place to hunt for some souvenirs. It has little kiosks in the middle and shops and restaurants on the sides. Being a place of many artists, from street traders, pantomime, dancers, break dance guys, painters will keep yourself busy for a while. An interesting note - Want to see a different side to Barcelona? Walk La Rambla after 5am to see all the prostitutes and dangerous homeless people.

It gets its name from a seasonal stream (“raml” in Arabic) that once ran here. It was outside the city walls until the 14th century, and was built up with monastic buildings and palaces and in the 16th to 18th centuries.

Las Ramblas - Barcelona

Busy, crazy, lots of annoying vendors and people who might pick your pockets. We ended up here often due to subway stop locations but usually tried not to hang out too long. Too many people and the streets around are a bit shadier than others in the city..

Las Ramblas is a large pedestrian street lined with restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, flower kiosks and bustling with tourists, locals, hustlers and performing artists from almost every genre. Depending on whom you ask, you will be told that the promenade is either a "must-see" or "to be avoided at all costs". While Las Ramblas abounds with pickpockets, it's a MUST for people-watching! And that's not all, Las Ramblas is dotted with some beautiful turn-of-the-century buildings like the Liecu Opera House (our apartment was right next door to the Opera) and the Boqueria Open Market, it also has some amazing art deco sculptures. At one end of Las Ramblas is the huge Place de Catalunya and at the other end, the old port. It would take you no more than 20 mins to walk the entire length of the promenade from end to end.

The world's most breath-taking building site, La Sagrada Familia has been under construction for well over 120 years and is Barcelona's most iconic building. Gaudí played a key role in the design of the Sagrada Família in the Eixample district.

Park Güell - Barcelona

Park Güell is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on the hill of El Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona, Catalonia,Spain. It was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It has an extension of 17.18 ha (0.1718 km²), which makes it one of the largest architectural works in south Europe. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí". This garden is one of the most beautiful and unique I've ever seen. It's not the surrounding a.k.a trees or lakes or floral which emphasise the beauty of the building, Instead it's the park itself which make the surrounding look so wonderful. The ceiling are all plastered with tiles and ceramics as well! Awesome right? Even broken cups and teapot can be found on these ceiling mosaic! A thin net is covered around to prevent injuries on tourist if the tiles are to fall by chance.

Montjuïc - Barcelona

Sants-Montjuïc is marvelous in the spring, especially at Miramar viewpoint, where the rose blooms and fountains create the ideal setting for a romantic date. The most popular attraction in this neighborhood is the Montjuïc Castle, which offers beautiful vistas over the rest of the city. In the summer, Plaça d'Espanya comes alive with music, while locals and tourists alike stroll around, in the quest for the next café.

Red Rocket Bar - Barcelona

While looking for a good rock bar we came across Red Rocket and liked the name and style from the outside. We weren't disappointed inside and after a short while we were treated to a poetry reading by a local poet, Indio Zammit, who had some serious fans.

Barceloneta - Barcelona

How can you leave beaches out of a Barcelona itinerary? So, here it is. One of the most amazing places to warm up and indulge in some sunbathing in Barcelona- Barceloneta Beach. The mediocre tourist spends all day in the sun at crowded Barceloneta Beach finding a square meter to place his towel and always in danger to get robbed. The further you move from the center the less crowded it gets and you will spot more surfers in the water. Dare to hop on a boat yourself? Also there are many other beautiful places to enjoy the sun: On one of the many terraces in the city with a cold beer, grab a bike and climb to the top of Tibidabo to get a great view of the city.

La Boqueria market has a history dating back to 1701. Come here to look, sit down for a drink or buy some lunch for a picnic later in the day.

La Boqueria - Barcelona

La Boqueria market is my favorite market place in the world. On my many visits to Barcelona I make it a point to never leave out this place. La Boqueria is just a few meters from the Barcelona Metro Station Liceu, the same as from Barcelona bus 14, 59 and 91. It was open for the first time already in 1217 known as Mercat Bornet. Later known as Plaça Nova and Plaça del Pi. It was mostly selling fish and meat until recently adding fruit and vegetables. The metal roof consisting still at the present dates back to 1914. I walked up and down Las Ramblas hundred times. I just love the place and its vivid atmosphere. Never noticed the market in one of the little streets though until a friend of mine invited me for a fresh juice. Fresh meat on the left, different kinds of chocolate on the right, then ice cream place and fresh fruit and vegetables, and fresh fish in the back. All displayed in an unbelievable nice perfect way, one would think the whole fruit pyramid would fall down only if you blew a little there. From small to huge, round to oval, probably all the possible shapes and colours.

Bar Plaza Mayor - Barcelona

Barcelona is popular for its notorious and vibrant nightlife. Do not make the mistake to go into one of the big clubs right by the beach. Start of your night with a couple of drinks at one of the many small bars. I find Plaza Mayor or the neighboring Olympic Port, both interesting places to hangout here. Order a gin and tonic and start mingling. Without a doubt you will find out where the night will continue afterwards.

Parc de la Ciutadella - Barcelona

Barcelona is full of green parks which is a must for me in a big city. One of them I visit very often, Ciutadella, because it has a wonderful fountain and a lake. But what differentiates it from all the other parks is a statue of a life-size mammoth next to the lake. Apart from clicking pictures of this huge mammoth, this park also has a zoo to visit. There are beautiful lakes and museums inside to visit too. A great place to relax and learn!

Café & Tapas - Barcelona

On our first day in the city of Barcelona, we decided to try something local and authentic. So we walk around the town and just happened to pick this cafe! Café & Tapas is its name and we were glad that we visited here! We were having hard time to choose the type of Paella and Tapas we wanted. But usually Paella comes with seafood while Tapas come with different kind of toppings. If I'm not mistaken, Paella comes with beef too! After hesitating for a while, we decided to ask the waiter for help!

Hotel Astoria - Barcelona

To be honest, this is the best hotel among the three countries that I've visited. I was satisfy with the stay and highly recommended for tourists who are visiting Barcelona because the hotel is located almost at the central of the town. Around 10 minutes walk from the Provença Metro though. Can be quite a challenge to complete the walk after an exhausting sight-seeing around the town. I was quite disappointed with the fact that the WiFi service is only provided at the hotel lobby. So the only time I can online was the 10 minutes before I went out and after I came back to the hotel. But it's beneficial in other way.... So that the guests can rest well in the room, not social networking until midnight etc.

Passeig de Gràcia - Barcelona

Passeig de Gràcia is among the most expensive shopping real estate in the world; all the leading luxury brands hotly competing to occupy the elegant modernista buildings of Barcelona’s widest street. Make sure you see La Pedrera which was Gaudí’s last major project before he started on his magnum opus, the Sagrada Família. if you stand in the middle of its gently lit courtyard, it’s easy to forget that you’re inside a man-made structure. The rolling curves, seaweed-like wrought iron and gnarled roof of this Barcelona landmark have been astounding passers-by on Passeig de Gràcia for over a century. Yet to properly appreciate this building you need to head indoors.There’s a forest-like quality to the interior of La Pedrera – the designer’s careful use of light mirrors that of a canopy of leaves. Try as you might, you won’t find a single straight line in this massive structure.

Casa Gracia Barcelona Hostel - Barcelona

I usually like to stay in Apartments in Barcelons, but on one trip I decided to try a hostel. The Casa Gracia was simply perfect. And let me be honest and make you jealous once again here, in which hostel you can get a private jacuzzi hot tub in your room? Along with that it has a fully equipped kitchen, a nice terrace and an amazing view. All this at great rates, I was more than pleased by this place!

Sagrada Familia - Barcelona

A piece of art which is so loved by my baby boy, and now has become one of my favorite too! Any one of you out there have any idea who was the architect for this magnificent masterpiece? He is non other than Antoni Gaudi. I fell in love with all his work after visiting them! Then we went to the underground exhibition part where descriptions,concept, architectures, designs for Sagrada are introduced. Sagrada Familia is still marred by cranes and scaffolding today after 80+ years of construction! And will be finished in 2026 on the centennary of Gaudi's death. A range of architects have continued Gaudi's legacy, trying to finish the church according to the plans he had devised. The world is so blessed that he left such amazing masterpieces before his death. Seriously I was awed and amazed by all his works! Love each and every one of them because all of them are different and unique in their very own way. You must be thinking that I am exaggerating but I can assure you that I DID NOT! See and visit those works of Gaudi if you have the chance and you will understand.
