10 top activities in Barcelona

Barcelona is a city with a long series of points of interest to know. It is one of the cities that most attract the attention of the entire European continent and of course, a benchmark in Spain. If you are thinking of visiting Barcelona and do not want to miss anything important, check out our guide.

Activities to do in your visit to Barcelona

Tour in the tourist bus

It is the best way to tour the city. Through the tourist bus we can know even the most hidden corners; We will appreciate from neighborhoods, monuments or any other place of importance. Let’s say that with this visit we can make a small idea of ​​everything that Barcelona offers us and then go deeper into what really interests us.

It is also a good resource to reach more distant places, such as Montjuic or Parc Güell.
Knowing La Sagrada Familia

It is a symbol of Barcelona. Designed by Antonio Gaudí and whose construction began in the late nineteenth century. It still does not have an established end date, although the project goes ahead.

The most outstanding points of this temple are the interior and the facade of the Passion, created according to the new architectural styles.

If you want to enjoy to the fullest all that La Sagrada Familia has to offer, we recommend you to study a little of its history before going to see it.

Viewpoints

The viewpoints of Barcelona are practical places from which we can appreciate the city in all its splendor. How it is oriented towards the sea, we will have bird’s-eye views that will not leave anyone indifferent, we can even search the Balearic Islands in the distance if the good weather accompanies us.

Our recommendations regarding viewpoints are the Torre Baró viewpoint, the Sarrià viewpoint and the turó de Magarola viewpoint.

Parc Güell

Another construction by Antonio Gaudí that we will enjoy without a doubt. It was commissioned by businessman Eusebi Güell, hence the park bears his name.

Many of its gardens and forests are open to the public, so we will not have to pay anything for them. However, the monumental zone does require entrance payment, although the price will not be very expensive.

Paseo de Gracia

The visit to the Paseo de Gracia in Barcelona is completely mandatory. Here you can find some works by architects such as Gaudí, Domènec i Montaner or Puig i Cadafalch in the form of modernist houses.

On this walk you can enjoy La Pedrera, a place where jazz concerts are organized in summer.

Montjuic

This mountain is a natural place located in the heart of the city, being a key place to get away from all the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.

It is also a suitable place to practice some sport, besides being a good vantage point from which you can appreciate the views of the port or the city.

If you decide to visit Montjuic, make sure your camera is charged.

The Rambla

La Rambla is an iconic place in Barcelona, ​​being a strategic area that was surrounded by the walls that protected the city. It is located on the other side of the Raval neighborhood and depending on the moment, it can be one of the most saturated areas of Barcelona.

At a given moment it can be filled with tourists, human statues, terraces where we can refresh ourselves with any drink, even women of the night.

In La Rambla there are many outstanding places to visit, such as the Liceu, the La Boquería market, or the Palau Güell.

Gothic Quarter

The Gothic Quarter hides an interesting religious past that extends over time to reach Visigothic times. Here we have The Cathedral; Although it is not considered one of the most aesthetic cathedrals in Spain, we assure you that your visit will not leave you indifferent.

If you are lucky enough to visit the city during Corpus Christi, then you should take the opportunity to see the ou com balla (egg that dances), a magnificent performance that takes place in the cloister of the Cathedral.

Promenade

The promenade in front of the sea extends 10 km connecting the Hotel Vera with the solar panels of the Forum. The activity on the seafront is very extensive, being able to find from restaurants, beach bars, nightclubs and, of course, beaches that we will surely want to visit more than once.

Gracia neighborhood

We also recommend you to know the Barrio de Gracia, the heart of the city for many. It is a neighborhood where the pedestrian has won the battle to the cars, with many pedestrian zones. Here we will find shops, restaurants, gourmet establishments and lots of nightlife.

If you are visiting the city and do not want to miss anything important, this guide will come to you very well.

  • 5 star ratingGreat and fun way to tour the city! This was our first Segway experience. We booked onto a public tour but it became a private tour as we were the only two on it. Roman was our guide - very friendly, and he made us feel at ease after finding out it was our first time on a Segway.

    After a brief training session (it's very easy to get the hang of it) we were off. Barcelona is... » Read More
