Barcelona travel tips

1) In Barcelona, Sundays are for museums, not for shopping

Many shops and indoor markets are closed on Sundays in Barcelona. However, you may visit most city museums for free on the first Sunday of each month. Note that local museums and sites may have other specific days and hours when the entrance is free. Check their websites for details and place your trip accordingly!

2) Explore the Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona

The Parc de la Ciutadella is an 18-hectare green oasis in the megacity, ideal for walks and picnics. Besides, you can row a boat on the picturesque lake. However, the park has much more to offer: the zoo, the geological museum and the Catalan Parliament. The building of the latter also houses the Museu d'Art Modern. Don’t miss some remarkable modernist buildings in the western part of the park: the Castle of the Three Dragons, the Hivernacle (glasshouse) and the Umbracle (plant house).

3) Set menus for lunch will save your money in Barcelona

Menu del dia (menu of the day) might be the best way to explore the local cuisine. Some cafes and restaurants offer a set lunch for just 15 euro! You can have the main course, a dessert, and complimentary drinks. Bon appetit!
