What to do in Barcelona

Barcelona is one of a few must-see cities because of its unique identity. The local artist Antoni Gaudí gave Barcelona an unmistakable look.

One of his most famous designs is the Sagrada Familia.

Sagrada Familia

  • This is a great place to start your Barcelona adventure.
  • The minor basilica is still only around three-quarters complete more than 140 years after Gaudí first became involved.
  • It is the tallest religious building in Europe.
  • Gaudi is buried there, and the builders' faces have been immortalized in the stone.
  • Individual tickets start at £22 Sagrada Familia tickets.

Casa Mila

  • Another amazing Gaudí building is the Casa Mila, also known as La Pedrera.
  • It's one of several Catalan modernist works to be UNESCO listed.

Casa Batlló

  • One of Guaudí's most Insta-friendly buildings.
  • It has again an exterior which you just might fall in love with.
  • You can also go inside this building for £8.

There are two groups of people. The ones who love Gaudí's style and those who don't. Now it is up to you! Visit Barcelona and decide which see which side you're on. We only mentioned three of Gaudi's buildings, but you can visit more than ten from this incredible artist.

If you need to meet your friends and don't know where. Try the best meeting point in the city.

Place de Catalunya

It's a great meeting point if you want to go wine tasting, shopping, or sightseeing around the city.

Camp Nou

  • All sport lovers should pay a visit to Camp Nou.
  • It's the biggest football stadium in Europe.
  • If you can't get tickets to a game, you can do a Camp Nou Tour instead.
  • Prices start at £22. Find tickets here.
  • Fun fact about Barcelona season tickets — you can't just buy them. You need to inherit them, join a club, or obtain them in some other way from the owner.

City Beaches

Barcelona's beachfront boardwalk stretches for miles. It takes a good hour to get from Barceloneta to Diagonal Mar on foot, but it's a walk that'll really help you understand the city.

Las Ramblas

  • It is the longest and most famous street in Barcelona.
  • It goes from Placa de Catalunya down to Columbus Monument at the waterfront.
  • This street is a living theatre. You'll encounter living statues, street performers, and much more.
  • If you prefer the shade of modern restaurants and shops, Las Ramblas is also the place for you.

La Boqueria

In the middle of the famous La Rambla, you can find an amazing market. Dating back to 1217, La Boqueria is the oldest market of its type in Barcelona.

Barcelona is a paradise for museum lovers.

Barcelona City History Museum

  • More than 4,000 sqm to explore.
  • it's best to check the museum's website and book your tickets in advance because there are lots of options to choose from.

If you're a food lover, Barcelona must be on your bucket list. You'll find something for all tastes in the city.

  • Aside from local Catalan and Spanish cuisine, you might be surprised to discover a lot of Japanese restaurants too.
  • The Pa amb tomàquet is a delicious Catalan snack of rustic bread with a sweet tomato mix.
  • Another signature food in this city is arròs negre. It is rice with squid or cuttlefish, and the rice is black from the ink of the squid or cuttlefish.

Barcelona travel tips

1) Visit Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Família in the morning

The construction of Basílica de la Sagrada Família started in 1882 and is still under way. Designed by the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí, the building combines Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau elements. Its fantastic architecture makes the Basílica one of the most well-known sites in Barcelona, attracting 3 million visitors a year. All those crowds may make getting into the building a hard task. Come early, better before 9:00, to avoid waiting in the lines for too long!

2) Barcelona supermarkets don’t sell alcohol after 23:00

Note that street sellers may work even later, but they usually offer overpriced, low-quality drinks. In some neighbourhoods (Raval, for instance), owners of minimarkets don’t trade alcohol for religious reasons. Start stockpiling all the necessities for a relaxing evening in advance!

3) Come to see the Torre Agbar skyscraper at night in Barcelona

The Torre Agbar, erected in 2005, has become an important element in Barcelona’s urban landscape. The bullet-shaped skyscraper is 145 metres tall, making it one of the highest structures in the city. This juggernaut looks impressive in daylight. However, it is even more stunning after the sunset, when over 4,500 lights illuminate the whole building. Don’t miss this sight!
