Insta-worthy spots in Barcelona:

We’re guessing the majority of travelers who stay in Alternative know about, or have Instagram. Even you who’s reading this, might be an Instagram travel blogger. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a traveler whose job is to travel and post pictures on Instagram. Pretty amazing right?

But don’t worry, if you just like to take pictures for your own private collection, this post is also for you.

  • La Barceloneta: this is one of the most known beaches in Barcelona and is the perfect place if you want to have a nice picture of the ocean and the sand. In the summer or in the winter, it’s always a cool place to be.
  • Parc Güell: You probably already know Parc Güell, the famous Antoni Gaudi masterpiece. With its beautiful view on the whole city and its colorful spirit, this is the perfect place to take the perfect picture.
  • La Boqueria Market: This is a local market situated on La Rambla. This market offers a lot of fruits, veggies, Spanish ham, cheese and much more. The fruit is amazing, with its amazing colors often arranged and presented like a rainbow. You should definitely go there to taste some of the local food and take some pictures to remember the experience.
  • Casa Vicens: This house is the big first project of Antoni Gaudi. It’s a pretty amazing experience as it’s a place full of small and impressive detail. Each room of the house is different from the other one. It may not be one of the most well-known work of Gaudi, but it’s certainly one of the most beautiful.

If you go to any of these places, don’t forget to enjoy the moment first, and then take some photos so the moment can last forever!
