Those of you who went to Barcelona know very well how beautiful the city is. The special colorful buildings in different architecture leave you speechless, allowing your imagination to travel in the mind of the Great architect Antoni Gaudi.
Those who did not go, travel with us with the eyes of imagination in the city of color feast and get some ideas for the time that imagination will become a reality.
Hop on – Hop off
We went for 3 days, and since we were in Barcelona for the first time, we wanted to discover its districts; see the architecture of the houses, where the locals live and shops and markets in the streets, all of which give a taste of a city’s culture. So, we decided to take the Hop on – Hop off bus and we didn’t regret it. It was easy to understand the routes, and we had the opportunity to get down to the major attractions that we were interested in discovering and then take the next bus for the next one.
La Sagrada Familia
We went in one of the most famous attractions of Barcelona, La Sagrada Familia. A grandiose cathedral but also so unique with its architecture. With a history of over 135 years, it combines the Gothic elements with Art Nouveau that today is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world.
Tip: It might take hours to get inside the temple. Thus, we recommend buying your tickets in advance to avoid any inconvenience. Click here for info and tickets.
The second attraction was Park Guell. A color palette with beautiful architecture. It is a mosaic park, another Gaudi’s project, located on Carmel Hill in the La Salut region. You can see the city from above, admire Gaudi’s art, take pictures, and enjoy your coffee in the coffee shop.
La Rambla, Casa Batlló, Cathedral of Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya
We chose a hotel in the area of La Rambla where it is the center of the city, and in this area, you will find essential sights, restaurants, and shops. The first evening, we made a first reconnaissance of the place; we enjoyed the tapas and sangria at the TapaTapa restaurant and admired the fountains in Plaça Catalunya, where the waters were “stained” with various colors. This area is also considered a meeting point. In the next few days, we visited the Casa Batlló, yet another masterpiece of Gaudi. The shape, the colors, and its whole architecture, first will surprise you and then will impress you. Just before the end of La Rambla, you will find the cathedral of Barcelona, an imposing Gothic temple which is worth a visit.
La Rambla del Mar
We had to walk around 20-30 minutes from La Rambla to reach the Rambla del Mar. It is an area where you can admire part of Barcelona from another point of view, take your walk on the Waterfront and shop at Maremagnum and Moll de la Fusta department stores. We went at night and loved the enlightened Barcelona.
Who goes to Barcelona and doesn’t want to see the largest stadium in Spain and Europe? The visit to the FC Barcelona stadium is a must since it is something different. Additionally, you can buy your favorite team’s jerseys and various items. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance to avoid queues.
This trip was one of the most beautiful, and we highly recommend it! Undoubtedly, one day, we will go back.
