What to see in Barcelona
The city and jewel of Spain has many sights you should definitely visit. The architecture, the museums, the restaurants, the beach, the food, there is something for everyone in this city. One of the things that is definitely worth seeing is Las Ramblas. Take every promenade from Plaça de Catalunya up until the Columbus Monument and get a chance to look at street performers, living statues, people selling birds and flowers while being under the shade of the trees. Once you reach the waterfront, there you can also visit the Maremagnum mall and the Aquarium of Barcelona.
Needless to say and mention that something you should see in Barcelona is La Sagrada Familia, the masterpiece of Antoni Gaudi. The basilica nowadays, more than 140 years after the initial involvement of Gaudi is not finished yet, combines many architectural styles like Art Nouveau and Gothic. Do not forget to look up at the ceiling of the nave.
Barcelona has many other things to see and cherish. Let’s not forget though the most important: finding the appropriate accommodation. We suggest renting an apartment close to Sagrada Familia. In that apartment you will have the independence of a space all for yourselves but also you can experience life as a Barcelona citizen while having all the comforts of a typical hotel.
What to do in Barcelona
If you are interested in architecture, Barcelona has many UNESCO listed works by Gaudi that you can visit. Casa Milà and Casa Batlló are two of those that you must see. But if you are tired of the architecture, you should definitely visit the beaches. The beachfront stretches for many kilometers and you need approximately one hour to go from Barceloneta to Diagonal Mar but it is a walk definitely worth doing.
Another experience and sight you need to visit is La Boqueria market. You can do your shopping there, you can shop for fruit, vegetables, cheese and many local products. After your shopping you can relax and drink a cold beer and taste a tapa at one of the many bars of the market.
And all those things are better to enjoy them and live them in an apartment you have rented in Barcelona.
