Figuring out where to go for a vacation can be a tricky subject. But I say it’s best to travel outside your country to get the best experience.
You can visit so many places, learn about such wonderful cultures, and, of course, eat the most delicious food out there.
The world is pretty big, after all. I suggest you pick Barcelona as your choice of escape. I mean, it is one of the best places to visit in Spain. Then again comes another difficult question, what are the things to do in Barcelona?
I got you covered with all the exciting things you can do when you get there.
Catedral de Barcelona
If you’re into all things goth, you are going to love the Catedral de Barcelona gothic temple. About 2000 years ago, it actually used to be a Roman temple.
To say this temple is beautiful is an understatement. This religious building is filled with amazing architectural value.
As the oldest market in Barcelona, the La Boqueria holds a special place among the locals. It has been around since 1217, after all.
You can find over 200 different stands when you walk in there. And the atmosphere is what’s so attractive about this market, with the ocean-salty and warm smell of the fried fish.
Gets your stomach rumbling!
And you have to wash that down with cava or a fruit smoothie you can get your hands on when you get there.
Palau de la Música Catalana
Although the Palau de la Música Catalana is a place for music, you will also get an amazing treat for your eyes.
This auditorium can only be explained as a kaleidoscope of chandeliers, stained glass, and roses.
And all this work was done by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, a Modernist architect. People say it’s more beautiful than even La Sagrada Família.
Now if you are hoping for a beach day on your visit to Barcelona, you are going to have a blast on Barceloneta beach.
It is the most popular, boisterous, and loud beach of all time. And you are sure to have the best time there.
When you get to the beach, you get hit with a rush of excitement because of the amazing azure waters and the whitest sand.
La Sagrada Família
You can’t visit Barcelona and not go to La Sagrada Família. It is not just any temple! It is one where Gaudi did his extraordinary work and dedicated it to the Holy Family.
Although the La Sagrada Família is somewhat left unfinished, people theorize that it won’t ever be done to keep the in-process cachet preserved.
Get the ticket!
When you book your ticket beforehand, you can actually get inside the amazing temple and see the stunning rainbow-stained glass and vaults with your own eyes.
Make sure you get the extra audio guide available there for the best kind of experience. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
If you want to escape to a wonderful historic green hill with amazing views and a lot of different fun things to do, you should visit Montjuïc hill.
And this hill is not just any hill. You can expect so many elements this hill boasts that will keep you reeling.
You get to see Plaza d’Espanya at the ground level, which is a staircase that will lead you up to the phenomenal Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, looking like a grand palace.
And there are so many other amazing museums to visit there.
There are a lot of things to do in Barcelona when you do make the trip. And to say the least, all of the activities you can experience are going to be worth it. It will be an adventure you’ll never forget.
