Siesta is just one of the many reasons why Barcelona made it to my Top 10 places to visit! This beautiful city took my breath away from the romantic orange city lights to its famous Sangria and most of all, its down-to-earth culture.
Barcelona is one of the popular picks when it comes to romance. Bring your loved ones here and take a leisurely walk along the stylish streets and beautiful buildings this city has to offer.
Famous for its gastronomy, this city has some great food; there is no question to that, but being able to find great food even if you’re on a budget is something else. Try the Tapas around Barceloneta or even have a look around the markets on Las Ramblas for some really good food that is worth the bucks.
Spend your time marvelling at the work of the famous architect, Antoni Gaudi. The Sagrada Familia is one of the must-see landmarks in the whole of Europe! The history that comes along with this Roman Catholic Church is truly remarkable. And the size of this church… I had problems trying to fit into my camera lens! In fact, the architecture all over Barcelona is so mesmerizing that you would want to go back and have a second look.
Zara, Stradivarius, Mango and more… What is a trip to Barcelona without shopping? You will definitely find a shop that suits your taste from the street stalls to boutiques and shopping centres. And, if you know the places to go, you can really find some great bargains too!
One of the best things about Barcelona is its nightlight. It is ever brimming and no matter what day you choose to go out on you can always find something happening in the city! The night is always never too old in Barcelona- be prepared to be all pumped up throughout the night!
After a crazy night out, wind down by the beach with a good book. The weather is generally too gorgeous to get a tan. I spotted a group of people salsa-ing away to the Spanish rhythms- the sight will have you swaying to the beat too! There are many restaurants and bars at the beach which are great for chilling out with friends.
The things to do and see in Barcelona are endless. This is one of the cities in the world that should be in your bucket list- if you have not included, do it right now!
