2. Rent a Bike
‘Color bikes‘ Barcelona has the coolest dutch style bikes, in heaps of different colours. Take your pick and explore the city, or opt to head down to the beach district, park up and take a dip! The city has bike lanes and is very easy to navigate so this is your best option for covering long distances and having fun at the same time!
3. Barceloneta beach
Probably the most famous beach in eastern Spain, Barceloneta has a great atmosphere. Bars and restaurants line the promenade and the vibe is really relaxed.
4. Park Guell
My favourite of Gaudi’s creations, this park was once designed as a living complex on the outskirts of the town, however now remains as one of the biggest attractions in Barca. The park itself has winding pathways to great views over the city (free entry to all) but you can also opt to book in and pay to enter the village itself, which is home to a mosaic wonderland. Make sure you do BOOK before arriving to save disappointment, they only allow 400 people in per hour!
5. Flamenco Dancing Show- Tablao Cordobes
Recommended to me by my wonderful Concierge at the Mercer, Tablao is one of the most dramatic and electrifying displays of Flamenco in Barcelona. Located on the busy La Ramble, it is a perfect after-dinner show! Only 44 Euro including one drink.
6. Gothic Quarter
The Gothic Quarter, in the south-eastern side of the city, is unmissable. The ancient roman streets are a constant maze, filled with Tapas and wine bars, live music and a romantic atmosphere. The architecture of the old Catedral Barcelona will leave you breathless and exploring it is FREE!
7. Magic Fountain (Font Magica)
Located on the Montjuic Mountain in the city, this spectacular light and water show is on Thursday to Sunday in the summer months and every Friday and Saturday during winter. The fountain blasts water sky high to music and an array of colours. Really cool place to sit back, have a drink and take in the atmosphere of Spain!
