This was my second time in Barcelona and I still didn’t even do everything I wanted to do in the four days that I was there. It’s a big city with a lot to do. It’s one of my favorite cities in Europe. Stay somewhere close to the main tourist street Las Ramblas. We stayed at an airbnb that was super nice right next to the main area of Las Ramblas.
For going out at night there are a lot of bars everywhere around Las Ramblas. If you want to go to a club I would go to Danzatoria where we went but there are a few others right next to it that are right on the beach. They are farther away from Las Ramblas but you can get the metro which stops at 1am and starts up again at 5 am. Or you can get a taxi.
The beach is nice to go to in the summer and is not too far from Las Ramblas.
Last time I didn’t do all of the Gaudi architecture tours so I did La Padrera and Casa Batllo this time I went. They are around 21 euros for each one. You get to go inside the houses he designed which are really cool. We also did Park Guell which is pretty and you can just go walk around for free if you don’t want to go into any of the museums that are there. You can get a really good view of the whole city while you’re there too.
Go see La Sagrada Familia, the church designed by Gaudi, that is still being built. It’s expensive compared to most churches in Europe that are either free or 2 euros to get in to. They need the funds for construction, but it’s worth it to see because it is pretty incredible. It is 15 euro and you have to book a time slot online.
You have to check out St Joseph’s Market La Boqueria on Las Ramblas. It is the best market I’ve been to. They have the best fresh juices and lots of other good things to eat.
Go to Mondaditos for cheap tapas. We realized after we ate there that if you go on Mondays all tapas are 50 cents!
