Barcelona travel tips

1) Walk the Park Güell — one of the most unusual ones you’ve ever seen

The 17-hectare park is one of the largest green zones in Barcelona. However, its distinctive feature is incredible buildings by the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí. Curved, organic shapes and colourful mosaics among the park’s greenery will transport you to another world! A large terrace, surrounded by a winding ceramic balustrade, offers splendid views of the city.

2) Tap water is safe to drink in Barcelona

The running water in Barcelona corresponds to all international standards. However, some people claim that excessive mineralisation affects its taste. Locals may use filtering jars to make it “milder”. There is little evidence that bottled water is safer than tap water in Spain. Still, some may prefer the former because of better taste.

3) See Casa Vincenc — Gaudi’s first house in Barcelona

Antoni Gaudí designed many remarkable buildings in the city. Casa Vincenc, built between 1883 and 1885, was among his first works. It was created as a summer house for the Vincenc family. Gaudí mixed different styles, uniquely combining some oriental and neoclassical elements. Like other creations of a famous architect, Casa Vincenc has an otherworldly look. A definite must-see for Gaudí fans!
