Four Days in Barcelona?

you have time to do everything in your own time. You don’t have to hurry to see everything in one or two days. Enjoy your stay and these are some suggestions for discovering Barcelona

Day One

1. Walk down La Rambla and visit the Gothic Quarter and El born

If you are in Barcelona, you have to walk down La Rambla. This is the main tourist street in the city and you will see people from all over the world. Whenever you go left on La Rambla, you will enter the Gothic Quarter. This area is one of the remaining places in Barcelona where you can see the invasion of the Romans. This part of the city is so different than the rest of the city. If you are in the neighbourhood, you can choose to visit Church of Santa Maria del Pi and the Cathedral of Barcelona. If you’re not tired yet from all the walking, you can just keep walking in the El Born Quarter. This is more the artistic area of Barcelona. You will find a lot of local shops where you can buy good gifts. If you want you can also walk a little bit further and you’ll arrive at the beach!

2. Visit Park Güell and Gracia

Gaudi has many buildings and places you have to visit if you are in Barcelona, and Park Güell is one of them. This park was created in his naturalistic period. It is one of a few places in Barcelona where you can go to see a beautiful view of Barcelona and also enjoy some nature. If you are done with the park you should skip taking the bus or metro and just walk down to the city centre. You’ll pass through the Gracia neighbourhood, which is well-liked by the locals. This is a neighbourhood where you will find a lot of authentic bars and restaurants, but also a lot of new businesses with a modern twist.

Day Two

1. Visit La Sagrada Familia

Antoni Gaudi is not only famous from his park, he also created some buildings where he could show off his signature style. He started to build this church when he was still alive, but unfortunately he died during the construction. That is the reason why this cathedral is still under construction now, more than 100 years later. Even though it isn’t finished yet, it is still worth a visit and definitely a must-visit when you are in Barcelona.

2. Visit Picasso Museum and Parc de la Ciutadella

Picasso museum is one of the most famous painters in the history and Barcelona has a museum dedicated to him. This museum holds one of the biggest collections of his masterpieces. If you are into art, and even if you’re not, you have to see this museum. It is also located close to a beautiful park called Parc de la Ciutadella. If you want to chill for a little while just walk over to the park. You can enjoy being there and enjoy the atmosphere, but you can also just walk around in the park and see what it has to offer. There are a lot of different things going on in this place. It is also right next to Arc de Triomph, so just walk over there and enjoy this beautiful arch.

Magic Fountain Show

In the evening you can walk to Plaça Espanya and enjoy the Magic Fountain Show. During the day it is just a normal fountain, but in the evening they turn it in to something totally different.  You can enjoy the light and music show and when it’s done you can walk up all the stairs and enjoy the breath-taking view of Barcelona.

Day Three

1. Visit Parc Montjuic

This park is located on a hill. So wherever you are in the park you will always have a beautiful view. This is a place where you can do, see and visit a lot of things. First of all, you can visit Castell de Montjuïc, the Olympic Stadium, the Joan Miró Fundacio, and Jardi Botànic. You can bring your swimsuit, because there is also an Olympic swimming pool that is open to the public. At the end of the long hike in the park you can walk to Plaça Espanya and at the top of all the stairs you will have an amazing view of Barcelona and the mountains behind the city.

2. Go to the beach or visit Palau de la Música

If you are tired of all the walking you can choose to go to the beach and relax for the afternoon. The beaches of Barcelona are fully man-made and are worth checking out. It’s perfect of sunbathing, or just walking along and people-watching.

If you don’t feel like going to the beach, you can also choose to go Palau de la Música. This museum is located in the Eixample neighbourhood and this is actually a concert hall. This should also be on your list of must-visits.

3. Visit El Bunkers del Carmel

If you feel like you haven’t seen enough of Barcelona, you can go to Bunkers del Carmel. This is a viewpoint in Barcelona where, again, you’ll have spectacular view of Barcelona and the sea. Take some friends and food and just enjoy being there and looking over the city from above.

Day Four

1. Visit La Pedrera

One of the other buildings of architect Gaudi is La Pedrera or Casa Mila. This is a building in the middle of Passeig de Gracia. It is in the typical Gaudistyle and it’s a beautiful building with a lot of stories to tell. On top of the building you will have, again, a beautiful view of the city.

2. Visit Palau Güell or MACBA and CCCB

This a little less famous then all the others famous buildings of Antoni Gaudi, but that doesn’t mean it’s less worth it. It is a building, or a home that he built for his family. It is located in the Raval neighbourhood. You can take a guided tour or just the audio guide, and you will know everything there is to know about this beautiful mansion.

MACBA or museum of contemporary art is in the middle of the Raval neighbourhood, next to CCCB. This is heaven for the skaters among us, but also for the art lovers. Every 3 months there’s a new exhibition in MACBA. CCCB is the Cultural Centre of the city. When you walk in to the building, you will find a big mirror in the square. This mirror will make it look like the sky is falling down!
