What to see in Barcelona and around

Couple of musts sees in Barcelona and around.
  • Sagrada familia - yes yes, it's a church, yes it's still being built, yes you can visit inside. 
  • Mont Juic - a former castle with great view - and a ride in a cabin car away. This place has everything  Check it out. Olympic stadium and the castle are a must see. 
  • Take a stroll down Pasaig de Gracia - post modernism buildings all around Casa Batllo, La Pedrera
  • Take a walk down Les Rambles from Placa Ctalunya  to Mirador the Colom (Columbus), make sure you stop by Boqueria (a market) for a snack and something to drink. Here have a look.
  • Gotic - historic quarter, narrow streets, churches, old buildings ... and an aquarium Gotic 
Around - places where it make sense to take a half day or a full day trip.
  • Sitges - famous (apparently) for it's film festival, currently the mekka of gay people. 
  • Tibidabo - possibly the greatest view of Barcelona AND a amusement park, and a church. You can take an old cable car to get there. 
  • Park Guell - check out the pronunciation of this one before asking anybody for direction. "Par Uey" :-) - it's a bit harder to reach but definitely worth it once you're there.

  2. This one seems to be a reference in the city:
