E30***57Sagrada Familia is absolutely amazing. When you walked out of the subway for the first time and turned your head to look at it, it definitely took my breath away. The details and its size are incredible. I bought the ticket in advance and was able to walk around before my trip. I highly recommend taking this tour because there is a lot of information and history about this church. People say that the best time to visit the Sagrada Familia is during sunset... they are right.
E30***57Nice to see. We bought tickets online in advance. It is definitely recommended. You don't have to wait for a few hours, you definitely know you have a ticket. The moment we arrived, we were able to walk directly. However, if there is no paid part, you can see a lot. In the paid part, it is very busy, so you always have to pay attention that you can only get the best things with other tourists in the photos
Gerard KeyesWithout doubt this the greatest football stadium in the world. Having just been on the tour I was absolutely taken away by sheer enormity of the stadium. From the outside it looks no bigger than a 40,000 seater stadium but when you get inside you are taken away by the almost 100,000 seater stadium that awaits you. I cannot wait to come back and watch a La Liga match. The tour itself is superb giving you access to the museum to the press areas and then to all 3 levels of the stadium.
01234567890liRamblas avenue is a prosperous pedestrian mall in the center of Barcelona, has been hailed as "the world''s most beautiful avenue", all year round is an endless stream of tourists and locals walk among them, the streets news-stand, flower shop, food pavilion, with various palace stands near the ramblas street sites let a person too many things to see.
Barcelona is the perfect walking city. Not too hot, not too cold, and full of impressive sights around every corner.
Start your day with a morning walk around the old town - exploring all the little nooks and crannies that it has to offer without the throngs of tourists. Stop into the small cafés for a café con leche and a cheeky croissant - because it’s a holiday.
Then, it’s up to the Hospital Sant Pau - a renovated hospital designed by Gaudí & co that’s a stone’s throw away from the Sagrada Familia - but a lot leas crowded.
Then, after exploring all the mosaic designs, grab a bottle of wine and head straight uphill to los bunquers - an old air gun spot from where you can see the sun set over the city 🌆
Barcelona contains both the authentically historic and the wildly bizarre. From the scenic trails of the colorful Park Güell to the romantic narrow alleys of Barri Gòtic; from the beachside nightclubs to the city's dozens of sacred churches and architectural marvels, this city by the sea seems to attract all types: the adventurer, the couple, the partier, the culture lover – and more – with an almost overwhelming variety of things to do. You could stay for a few days, but chances are you'll need a whole week to explore.
In Barcelona, even the beach is bustling, but it's really the cosmopolitan city that gets all the attention. Much of the activity revolves around Las Ramblas, a series of narrow streets and alleys packed with restaurants, nightclubs and a vibrant pedestrian market. But you should also take a tour of Antoni Gaudí's masterpieces; Gaudí is responsible for sites like Casa Milà, Casa Batlló and La Sagrada Familia. You also shouldn't miss out on the eclectic shopping scene and the region's exquisite food and wine.

Hans Christian Anderson described Barcelona as the "Paris of Spain" because of its resemblance with the French atmosphere. The city has a beautiful charm and a rich cultural significance. It is the capital city of autonomous community of Catalonia in Spain and the second largest city in Spain.
With a population of over two million people, Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain. Located on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, Barcelona has a rich history and a wide range of attractions for the tourists from across the globe. The city is filled with galleries, museums, medieval monuments and many other special attractions. it is also a major commercial and industrial centre. It is situated along the Mediterranean coast and the towering mountains provide the perfect backdrop for the city. The city is the capital of Barcelona province, as well as, of the autonomous region Catalunya. It is a gateway to few of the best tourists spots in the entire world like Costa Brava, Tarragona and Costa Dorada. Barcelona is also the chocolate producing centre for Spain. This city has everything that a European city is famous for- markets, restaurants, museums, churches and shops. The centre of the town provides life and enjoyment, whereas, the beaches near the city are the place for complete relaxation.
The aquarium is smaller compared to other main water attractions but its revolving tunnel feature is really one of a kind. They still have a vast colection of species including stung rays, octopuses and sharks!! The entry to the venue is fast as the voucher was already accepted as ticket. Its a must see for families with small children as they have lots of interactive activities for kids. I appreciated the small but very cute penguin showcase.
The Barcelona Aquarium was very entertaining. They had a great selection of fish and water creatures. Though, I found it a bit small as compared to orher aquqriums I have been to. But overall, it is my money’s wprth.
Best to go on a weekday as it gets really crowded on weekends especially Sundays.
We were in Barcelona city looking for something different to do so we discover this amazing camping with private beach named “Kampaoh Cala Pola”. We immediately rented a car and drove to there. 😱 It was an experience experience. The price is very reasonable, the people are kind, the “room” is comfortable and the beach is peaceful! Highly recommend! 👏🏻
For traveler who are traveling to Spain Barcelona and have limited times. you may choose to visit Montserrat that’s an hour train ride away from Barcelona.
For photographers who love photography there’s a trekking trail which allows you to capture beautiful pictures but the best is to enjoy the breeze and environment there.

L’lla Diagonal is the Barcelona’s oldest mall, it was built back in 1993 and since then has been one of the favorites of the local public.
The design of the center building is already something you will appreciate: it looks somewhat like a horizontal skyscraper that seems to be lying on its side.
It is located right next to the Diagonal Avenue, in the upper part of Barcelona, in between the districts of Les Corts and Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. 😌
Maremagnum is located at the very end of a wooden pier of the Port Vell of Barcelona. Its building has a very distinctive and interesting design. Its mirrored entrance will not let you pass by without taking a selfie!
The shopping precinct offers numerous shops for fashion, home ware and other kinds of goods.
Getting there is the easiest thing: you just walk down Las Ramblas all the way from Plaza Catalunya and follow the crowd through the pier.
You will not have a more enjoyable and romantic walk, especially if you do it during the sunset.
Here you have the beautiful Rambla de Mar just before reaching the mall. 😘
