Most visitors only visit a few of Gaudí’s sites in Barcelona, so the order in which you visit the sites is probably not very important although I would consider leaving Sagrada Família for the final visit if possible. This is not only Gaudí’s grandest work and masterpiece, but his final one and the one to which he was deeply devoted. Also I would recommend visiting any exhibition and museum sites sooner rather than later in your trip as they can help you better understand the architecture you are going to see .....and know more about Gaudí as a person. For those planning to visit many of Gaudí’s works, I’d suggest either visiting them by geographical location as they are spread out throughout Barcelona (so group them together by neighborhood, see map below) or in chronological order to see how Gaudí’s work changed and progressed over time (see order of list of sites below).

Avoid La Rambla, and the busy Passeig de Gracia streets; instead head to the more “local” neighborhoods like Poble Sec, Sants, and Gracia to find some of the best restaurants in town at much cheaper prices than the Gothic Quarter and el Born. My personal favorite is Carrer del Blai (Blai Street), which is full of Basque-style pintxo bars (mini tapas on sticks), which start from €1 each.

If I could only recommend one place to visit in Barcelona, it’d be Parc Guell. Gaudi’s architecture is just incredible! From the colourful mosaic-covered terrace, to the beautifully wonky colonnaded pathway, to the dragon staircase and the Hansel-and-Gretel style gatehouses – there’s so much to see. Not only that, but as the park is at quite a height, you’ll be rewarded with some of the best views of the city too.

Visiting attractions in Barcelona can be expensive but there are a few ways you can save money. First most of the exteriors of Gaudí’s most famous buildings can be seen for free (e.g., Sagrada Família, Casa Calvet, Casa Milà, Casa Batlló) and a few of Gaudí’s other works can be visited for free (e.g., fountain & pergola at Güell Estate, lampposts, mosaic in Church of Sant Pacià). So even if you are on a frugal budget in Barcelona, you can still enjoy some of Gaudí’s work for free. Also note that .....many of the websites for the attractions, including Sagrada Família, offer “virtual visits” where you can see interactive video, video, and/or photos of the attraction interiors from home. These make Gaudí’s works accessible to just about anyone! For those who want to save money but also want to visit some of the interiors, I would recommend checking out the various passes on offer for Barcelona, most notably the Go Barcelona Pass and the Barcelona Card. These passes can help you get free or discounted entry to some of Gaudí’s sites and help you save on many other attractions and transportation in the city. You can see our Barcelona pass comparison post for more information. Also you can sometimes save a little money (and time) by booking tickets in advance online for a few of the sites. You can also check for combination ticket savings (for instance you can currently save a little if you buy the Sagrada Família and Gaudí House Museum tickets together online). Show less

If your flight arrives at T1 or T2 of the Barcelona airport, the most affordable way to get downtown is to take the Renfe train. The train arrives 30 minutes and calls at several major train stations including Sants (travel time is 18 min), Passeig de Gràcia (24 min), El Clot-Aragó (30 min). From T2, there are signages which will point you in direction of the train (Renfe). You’re have to walk pass an overhead bridge (located near Section B of T2) to reach the station. The walk takes about 10 minutes. If you’re arriving from .....T1, there is a connecting bus service which takes you to T2B. Plan for an extra 15 – 20 minutes of travel as it can get crowded especially during peak hours. If you have a flight departing from T1, I suggest you buffer in an extra 20-30 minutes for travel as the bus can get pretty packed at times. A single ticket for the train is €4.10 (April 2014), but you can also buy the awesome T10 travelcard (€10.30 for ten trips over any period of time); which bring me to the next point. Show less

The names used locally for this cable car service are the Teleferico Barcelona or “Port Cable Car”. The cable car is a bit of an oddity in Barcelona. Its link to the past that this city seems to want to forget. Barcelona you see is mainly a shiny new city. When Barcelona was awarded the Olympics in 1992 it went on a major redevelopment and demolished a lot of the old building in the city. I loved the old world architecture of its towers. The iron construction reminds me of .....the Eiffel Tower. The teleferico Barcelona was constructed as an attraction for the 1929 world’s fair that was held in Barcelona. The size of the project was seriously underestimated and the cable car did not open till 1931. The venture has had a checkered past including being used as a machine gun tower during the Spanish civil war. It has opened and closed numerous times since its inception but with the re-development of the port area early in the late 1990’s its future was secured.

Barcelona is a city filled with art galleries. From the Picasso Museum, to the Fundació Joan Miró in Montjuic, and MACBA (Contemporary Art Museum) in the centre of the city, there are plenty of colourful works to keep you entertained. Added to that, there are plenty of gallery spaces within the Gothic Quarter to check out. I loved stumbling across them as I wandered the streets. Highlights included Base Elements Urban Art Gallery and BCN Painting Route Art Gallery, both of which were filled with colourful modern works.

What visit to Barcelona would be complete without a visit to the beach? Barcelona’s Playa de la Barceloneta is the most popular beach in the city and has lovely white sand. It’s a great place to relax all year round, and even in December you will see people swimming in the sea as Spain enjoys fairly mild winters compared to the rest of Europe. The beach can get very busy, so it’s worth investing in a large beach sheet to mark your territory. There are some lovely ones available to buy .....from local street vendors. People will also approach you to sell you cocktails or cans of beer for €1. Whilst this can be tempting, it’s worth noting that drinking alcohol in public places such as the beach is illegal in Barcelona. Show less

Once on the right path, we still wanted to walk our intended route. The route would take 2.5 hours and we still had 3,15 hours left until the last funicular down the mountain. So we rushed. We had a quick lunch and we walked at a brisk pace. We only made a few quick stops to take some snapshots. When planning our trip, I imagined we would take our time, take in the views, enjoy each other’s company and take loads and loads of beautiful pictures.

I knew there were shops at the monastery and I figured the products available would be more expensive than in the local supermarket. But I never expected things to be that expensive. We brought our own lunch (something we did do right) but bought water and a pack of cookies on site. We spend €6,80 for 2 bottles of water and some cookies. Insane. TIP: Don’t buy too much in the shops as they are expensive. Bring your own snacks and drinks, or opt for the transport ticket by train that .....includes lunch!Looking for the best foodie adventure in Barcelona?

That is the magic word. The T10 pass is your cheapest option. This card allows you to travel on bus, metro (not the airport one) and railway. You get 10 journeys on this card for the price of €10,20 For the people who are bad at math: that is €1,02 per journey. Roughly 1 Euro for a journey on the bus, metro or train inside the Barcelona city area. With this card, you can take the TMB bus 46 and travel from Barcelona Airport to city center for 1 Euro. You .....can also use it on the train R2 from the airport to Barcelona city. Unfortunately, you cannot use it on the metro running from the airport to town. But, this T10 card gives you the opportunity to travel via bus or train from the Barcelona El Prat airport to the city! For 1 Euro.

If you still have time in your day, then I can recommend heading up above the city and finishing your day in Barcelona with a bit of time in the Castle Montjuic and surrounding gardens, followed by a visit to the Magic Fountain. Yes, Barcelona has a magic fountain. How can you not love this city? Castell Montjuic is perched 180 metres above the city, and will give you a great evening view as the sun starts to lower herself down. It’s free to enter, and is open fairly late. After you’ve .....sated your castle and city viewing needs, then I can really recommend timing your visit around Barcelona to take in the magic fountain display, and watch the sun set across the city from the steps of the Palau National. This is either a 20 minute walk from the Castell Montjuic, through a variety of pretty gardens, or a 20 minute bus ride on the 193 bus. Not a bad way to end your day in Barcelona! Check here for opening times for the Castle Montjuic for your visit, and here for information as to when the Magic Fountain is doing a display, if you get your timings right you will finish your evening off in style, with the streets of Barcelona below ready to envelop you in an evening of food, music, and good times!   Show less

At the bottom of Las Rambles, this column is a tribute to Christopher Columbus. In the centre of it is a teeny tiny lift (it only fits 4 people) which takes you up to a height of 60 metres. From there, you’ll see the city’s colourful skyline topped with orange and yellow roofs, and flags blowing in the wind.

I must warn you for people who don’t like heights this is not an experience for the faint-hearted. We arrived at the Barceloneta entrance to the cable car. It was 36 degree’s the day we decided to take on the cable car. There was a 30-minute wait downstairs. The operators had mist fans working to keep people cool while waiting in line.  This was greatly appreciated. We were unaware that once at the top of the station there would be another 30 minutes wait. I often say anything worth doing .....is worth waiting for and it was true. The views from the top of the Barceloneta station were amazing, especially the Mediterranean Barcelona coast, The Marina with its superyachts and cruise liners and the Barcelona skyline where a sight to behold. ⇒ You might like our related article,Barcelona for kids ⇐   Show less

After a couple of minutes, I realized none of the routes descriptions matched the landscape around us, but we kept walking. Soon we were on a dead-end pass and walked back and forth to find the right route.

I’m ashamed to admit that I’d visited Barcelona 3 times before I made it to historic Girona despite it .....being 10 mins from the airport, only half an hour from Barcelona, the popular seaside towns of Lloret and Tossa De Mar on the Costa Brava Coast.

With the stunning backdrop of the Palau Nacional, the gigantic fountain in front of the Montjuic mountain has a light and music show every Thursday-Saturday, and more frequently in the summer (schedule here). The synchronization of music (always the classics), light, and water will leave you in .....awe. Stand too close to the fountain you’ll even get wet – there’s nothing like sneaking a kiss in “the rain” to turn the romance up a notch. Show less

Camp Nou is home to Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez, it’s home to Barcelona Football Club. Camp Nou means ‘The New Stadium‘ and is the largest stadium in Europe, it literally can hold up to 99,000 people inside! Insane! In real life it really does look massive and takes a few hours to complete the guided tour of the stadium. The tour begins at the museum which shows off all of the club’s trophies and memorabilia and quickly ascends into the change rooms, pitch and up to the media .....and VIP boxes. This tour is mostly appreciated by those who love and respect The World Game. Show less

If you’re looking to relax and enjoy Barcelona’s beautiful weather, head to the beach. The city has a popular beach that’s open year-round called Barceloneta. It’s long, wide, and the water is great for swimming. There are also a lot of good restaurants on the boardwalk. The beach is always busy with both tourists and locals so walk further from the center to reach some quieter and cleaner sections. Two areas I’d recommend are Sant Sebastià (in the south) and Somorrostro (in the north).

Once you reach the Montjuic side and disembark more amazing views are on offer. There is a cafe/bar where you can enjoy a drink and the views. You can continue to the top of Montjuic on another cable car if you choose, The Teleferico Montjuïc. (more on that near the bottom) We chose instead to head up the road and visit the 1992 Olympic Games stadium. The Barcelona Port cable car is a good bit of family travel fun for the whole family.

These days when I meet someone involved in the Spanish food world, there’s always a question I end up asking. Did you ever eat at El Bulli? Likely Spain’s most important modern legend, when it closed in 2011 I was still just getting to know modern Spanish cuisine. Luckily, there is still plenty of Adría family fame to go around– Tickets is Albert and Ferrán Adrià’s most emblematic tapas restaurant, and nearby you’ll find other thematic spots like Bodega 1900, Pakta, and Enigma.

The Fundació Miró is any art lover’s paradise, however even if art ‘isn’t your thing’ you may find that this surrealist museum / gallery is. Even the building itself has been designed to fit the surrealist environment. Miró’s works are fun, bright and colourful and despite not being one for galleries, I personally enjoyed every minute of my visit –especially when I got to witness Miró’s infamous sculptures. If one art museum isn’t enough for you, then you’ll be pleased to hear that you can also find the National Art .....Museum of Cataluña (formerly the Palau Nacional) further down the hill! Show less

A pleasant 10 minutes’ walk from the Joan Miró Foundation brings you to Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC), a museum dedicated to 1000 years of Catalan visual art. You could easily spend the afternoon here taking in the many exhibitions but make sure you give yourself enough time to stop by and appreciate the ‘Christ in his Majesty’, the primary attraction in the museum.

For your last day in the city, head to Poble Espanyol – a huge open-air museum four times the size of FC Barcelona’s football pitch. The complex is famous for its various sections, each of whom represent a specific Spanish region. There is also a flourishing handicraft market which is perfect for souvenir shopping. From Poble Espanyol walk 15 minutes to another equally enticing attraction, the Fundació de Joan Miró which exhibits the greatest artworks of Joan Miró. A great idea for lunch would be to bring some packed food .....with you for a nice picnic on the grassy slopes of Montjuïc. Show less

Most of Gaudi’s architectural works, from his first commissioned work in Plaça Reial (funky lampposts) to Casa Batlló and La Sagrada Familia, his magnificent unfinished masterpiece, are all worth admiring from the outside. Some museums, such as Palau Guell (the townhouse Gaudi designed for his patron Eusebio Guell) have free entry on the first Sunday of the month, but make sure you reserve your ticket online to guarantee entry. Most of Parc Guell is open to the public, so you can still walk around the park and see some of .....the designs, as well as spectacular views of the city, for free. However, the most famous lizard statue and mosaic terrace are in the paid section. Show less

We used the Barcelona Metro to travel around the city. As we only needed it for a few journeys we shared a T10 card, which gave us 10 journeys for 10.40 EUR. To get to and from Barcelona Airport we caught the Aerobus, which takes you to the centre of the city in 40 minutes. A return costs under 10.20 EUR or you can buy a single for 5.90 EUR. We travelled with KLM who have flights to Barcelona from 17 departure points across the UK via its multi-award winning hub, Amsterdam .....Airport Schiphol. KLM operates twice daily flights to Barcelona from London Heathrow airport, with fares starting from £122 return including tax. To book or for more information, visit www.klm.com or check out their city breaks. Looking for more trip inspiration? Check out An Adventurous World’s guide to spending 3 Days In Barcelona.

Chocolate lovers cannot miss a visit to the Chocolate Museum or Museu de la Xocolata located in the Gothic Quarter. The museum walks you through the origin, history, and trading of chocolate in Europe. The museum displays various works of art made of chocolate including sculptures and paintings. The tour also walks through the manufacturing process of chocolate from cocoa beans to chocolate bars. We had to skip this too after our recent visit to the Chocolate Museum in Switzerland.

I took this tour to the Fishermen’s Guild in Barcelona. We learned about their traditions and visited the oldest lighthouse in Barcelona – now reconverted into a tower clock. We got to learn about how our daily habits and our waste make an impact on these people’s jobs and the fishies, and finally, how to eat fish .....in a more sustainable way. Plus, this tour ends with a seafood tasting experience. Show less

One of the best rooftops in Barcelona is pretty close to the sea, at the History Museum of Catalonia: you can access the rooftop for free if you just want to take some pictures, but I highly recommend it for sunset drinks. Other rooftops that are well worth a visit are Hotel Ayre Roselló for its incredible view to Sagrada Familia and Barceló Raval for its 360º views.

The third lounge is largely used for Barcelona-Madrid shuttle and domestic flight gates. Sala VIP Colomeris found in Terminal 1, Airside, Barcelona airport. This is, again, a third-party lounge but Iberia is the main airline using it. The lounge is accessible to Iberia business class passengers as well as Iberia Plus Gold and Platinum and Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members. The lounge is also accessible to premium passengers of Vueling and Air Europa. It has lots of black sofa seats and nice views to the planes, but is not noteworthy. Food-wise, .....there are sandwiches, pastries, snacks like nuts and crisps, but nothing that you would class as “a meal”, just light bites to go with drinks. The selection of alcoholic drinks is extensive with spirits, beer, red and white wine and sparkling wine. Show less

In Palamós, you can find a small stone hut that built for Salvador Dalí to be used as an artist studio by his wealthy friend Alberto Puig Palau as a gesture of friendship. It quite unlikely that Dalí ever used the secluded studio, but there are a few photos of him standing in front of it. The stone hut was made with a nod to surrealism with a slated door. You can find the little hut (it is free to visit) by following a path into the forest for about .....10 minutes from Platja de Castell. The beach is located just outside of Palamos. There is a hiking marker directing you from the beach area but I’d use Google maps to find the exact location (Barraca de Salvador Dalí) in the forest as it was not well-marked when we visited. The little house is generally referred to as the Barraca d’en Dalí, or the hut or barracks of Dalí.  Platja de Castell is a beautiful undeveloped beach worth a visit in its own right, and you might want to spend some time relaxing on the sandy beach if it is a warm day. They also rent kayaks and have a cafe here in the summer season. There is also a path you can follow to visit the ruins of an Iberian settlement of Castell located just above the beach. We really like Palamós and it is one of several remaining commercial fishing ports along the Costa Brava coast. In addition to the beach, we recommend visiting the Museu de la Pesca (fishing museum) and wandering around the Old Town area (area above the beach and harbor). If you are interested in the fishing culture and will be visiting in the late afternoon or evening, we also recommend doing a guided visit of the live fish auction, visiting the fish market, and doing a seafood cooking workshop. All these experiences can be booked in advance with the Museu de la Pesca.  Show less

Take a train. From Barcelona's Franca Station, you can take an Elipsos train, which travels overnight to Paris' Austerlitz Station. The Elipsos train offers a variety of sleeping options, from a deep reclining seat to a private suite complete with shower and toilet. Once you arrive in Paris, transfer to a TGV, or high-speed train, which will take you straight to Frankfurt. Depending on the schedule, you may have to transfer in another city, but direct TGV trains to Frankfurt from Paris are widely available.
