6 things to do in Barcelona

Barcelona is a city of art but also has 5 km of sandy beaches! And although during the day is quite quiet, Barcelona comes alive at night. Here are 6 things to do!

1- Visit the local markets

To get closer to local products, visit La Boqueria off Las Ramblas. This sprawling market is often crowded with tourists, locals and commercial buyers - but negotiating around the maze of stalls is part of the fun: you can pick up food to take away or eat at one of the market stalls.

2- Wander around the greenest part of the city

The Parc de la Ciutadella is located a few steps from the beach. In addition to the ornamental gardens, the Catalan Parliament building and the Barcelona Zoo are also located here. At the zoo, at the entrance, look for the Lady with the Umbrella statue. If you want to enter the Parlament de Catalunya, you will have to visit it on the first Friday of the month.

3- Visit the Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família, which attracts the largest crowds in Barcelona. Gaudí's unfinished masterpiece is one of the few UNESCO World Heritage buildings still under construction - it should be completed in 2026, but it is one of the most beautiful construction sites in the world. It is advisable to book tickets online to avoid queues during busy periods. You can get a general admission ticket - but it is worth paying a little extra to climb one of the towers - the view is exceptional.

4- Admire the stained glass windows in the gothic places of worship in the city

The Cathedral Basilica of Barcelona took about 150 years to build. About three million visitors visit it every year - it is a splendid example of a typical Gothic and Baroque cathedral. The 14th century temple of Santa Maria del Mar is another exquisite building to visit. The Basilica, the Crypt and the terrace can be visited during the day with guided tours - watch out for the colored keystones on the walls. Finally, the quiet Monestir de Pedralbes offers you a glimpse into the life of the nuns over the centuries. They recommend you to visit the monastery during the midday heat of summer, since inside the church, the monastery and the gardens you will find a pleasant coolness.

5- Enjoy the beaches of Barcelona

In the town there are nine different beaches: most of the beaches are equipped with lifeguards if you want to take a dip, or you can go to the bathing area of Fòrum, which is an indoor swimming pool with sea water. You can rent bicycles and ride along the sidewalks, or sit by the sea in one of the restaurants or cafes along the beaches.

6- Admire the mountain during excursions

If you fancy a day trip out of town, the Parc Natural de la Muntanya de Montserrat is the perfect place to admire the rock formations. The monastery attracts pilgrims to the statue of the Black Madonna of Montserrat.
