An action packed, cosmopolitan city, Barcelona promises beautiful beaches, elegant architecture, and inimitable culture and heritage. What makes the city even more special is its cool vibe, thriving nightlife, rich music scene and an ongoing culinary renaissance.

Things to do and places of interest in Barcelona

A hip, urban destination, Barcelona offers plenty of history and architecture, culture and festivals, gastronomy and nightlife. With a ton of landmarks, monuments, parks, markets, museums and beaches to explore, a single trip may not be enough to see everything that Barcelona offers. Here are a few suggestions on what to include in your itinerary to truly experience this vibrant city.

  • Spend time on the sandy shores of the city’s spectacular beaches to swim, sunbathe, people-watch and catch a glorious sunset. Some of the notable beaches include the bustling Barcelona Beach for beach activities and entertainment, Nova Icaria Beach for watersports, Bogatell Beach and Ocata Beach for calmer, pristine, shores, and Mar Bella Beach for weekend late-night rave parties.
  • Tour some of the key architectural landmarks of Barcelona, including the Antoni Gaudí-designed Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, and Casa Batllo. Don’t miss a visit to Park Güell, an enchanting space that emulates an English garden city.
  • Enjoy a leisurely stroll through impressive parks such as Parc de la Ciutadella, Parc de Joan Miró, and the Montjuïc castle. Stay for a show at the Font Mágica Fountain, which take place in the evening at half-hour intervals each weekend and are extended during the summer season.
  • Visit museums such as the Museu Picasso for a great collection of Pablo Picasso’s paintings, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) for Catalan art and Romanesque frescoes, the Museu d’Historia de Barcelona (MUHBA) for Barcelonian history, and Fundació Joan Miró, one of the largest art and sculpture museums in the world.
  • Football fans should experience a live match at Camp Nou, the home stadium of the Premier League team FC Barcelona. On non-match days you can opt for a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium.
  • Browse through a wide range of local and international produce, fresh seafood, flowers, and meats at the famous Mercat de la Boqueria market.
  • Attend live music performances at the ornate Gran Teatre del Liceu concert hall, or the architecturally rich Palau de la Música Catalana concert hall.
  • Stroll along the tree-lined La Rambla street for a glimpse into Catalan history and culture. Visit the magnificent Catalan Gothic-style La Catedral in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. Enjoy watching the buskers and street artists, and shop for souvenirs from scores of hawkers in the area.
  • Wander around the El-Born area for inspiring street art in the alleyways, quaint, handmade ceramics shops, and trendy bars and clubs. Stop to admire the gorgeous stained-glass windows of the Gothic-styled Basilica of Santa Maria Del Mar.

Tips and tricks for visiting Barcelona

Try a Pintxos bar

In a city that promises heaps of gastronomic delights, don’t miss a visit to a Pintxos bar, a culinary trend in Barcelona. While essentially this is Basque tapas, tradition calls for choosing your Pintxos with toothpicks. At the end of the night you are charged for the number of toothpicks used. Euskal Etxea restaurant at Plaça de Montcada is one of the best places to try this. Some of the other must-try tapas bars include Quimet i Quimet, La Esquinica and El Jabali.

Cover up!

Many of the religious attractions, such as the Catedral de Barcelona and Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, require visitors to cover up their knees and shoulders when stepping inside. Visitors without the proper attire are strictly not admitted. Make sure you dress appropriately or carry shawls, scarves etc. to cover up with, so you don’t miss out on these grand sights and attractions.
