Things to do in Barcelona

In Barcelona, you can admire the old with the new in practically every corner. You can go from the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar dating from 1329, to the modernist period buildings of Gaudi and then to contemporary buildings such as the Forum or the Agbar tour. In a matter of hours, you can travel through time looking at all of the different architecture. 

In addition, if you walk through its neighbourhoods, you’ll have the chance to soak up the rich culture that has evolved for example in the Born, the Gothic Quarter, Poblenou, etc. 

It should also be noted that despite being one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, it is also one of the cities most famous for theft at the hands of “pickpockets”. If you keep an eye on your belongings and avoid getting lost, you should be safeguarded against getting your things stolen. These are the main places to visit in Barcelona. 

The Sagrada Familia

We start with the highlight of the city of Barcelona, the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. This modernist work designed by Gaudí has been under construction for more than 136 years and is one of Barcelona’s most emblematic buildings. It is a church that has no comparison with any other in the world. On its facade, you can see engraved the history it has lived through, and the religious essence that characterises it. 

Once you enter the building, you can see how every detail in this church has a reference to nature as Gaudí intended: to mix the natural with the supernatural. Being the most visited building in Barcelona it is advisable to book your ticket to avoid long queues.

Batlló House

We return to Gaudí as the architect of another one of the most iconic buildings in the city of Barcelona – Casa Batlló. This building is a shining jewel of Catalan modernism and is located on Passeig de Gràcia, the most high-end street in the city. There is not one straight line on the facade of the building, nor anywhere in its interior. 

The dominance of nature in architecture is found once more in Casa Batlló. To enter, there are different types of tickets, but we recommend booking in advance to avoid long queues that can form. Once you leave Gaudí’s building you can walk along Passeig de Gràcia to admire luxurious stores and other modernist architecture. 

The Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar

This basilica is often confused with the Cathedral of Barcelona due to the famous book by Ildefonso Falcones, The Cathedral of the Sea, which narrates the construction of this church and general life in the city. The exterior facade of the Catalan Gothic style may not catch your attention, however, when you enter through its doors you will be amazed by the immensity of this beautiful basilica.

The story goes that each of the stones that make up the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar was lowered by hand by the longshoremen from the mountain of Tibidabo. At the entrance of the building, you will see an inscription thanking the people for the construction.

The Ramblas

There is nothing more typical of Barcelona than a stroll down the Ramblas, full of people all walking in different directions at all hours of the day. This one-and-a-half kilometre walk goes from Plaza Catalunya to the Columbus monument in the port and passes by some of the most emblematic buildings in the city.

We recommend that you stop by the Boqueria market and be amazed by its colours, stop to watch one of the street artists, or buy flowers in one of the flower shops that you see on the Rambla. However, it isn’t advisable to sit on any of the terraces for a drink because, as tempting as it looks, the prices are exorbitant for the quality they offer. 

Gothic Quarter

The Gothic Quarter is part of the old town and is the nerve centre where most of the emblematic buildings and monuments are concentrated. Stroll through its streets and you will find the Cathedral of Barcelona, the Plaza del Rey, and the Plaza de Sant Jaume, where the government of Barcelona and Catalonia is centralised, among many other important landmarks.

The Cathedral of Barcelona

The Cathedral of Barcelona is an essential building to visit in Barcelona. Located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, its facade alone is enough to spend hours contemplating. Once inside, you’ll be able to admire the Catalan Gothic style in its purest form – just enough decoration to give importance to the space. 


Seeing Barcelona from the heights is one of the best ways to experience the city. By day you can see the shape of its streets, the traffic, the sea, and the mountains, and at night you can admire the lights of a city that never sleeps. Some of the best viewpoints in Barcelona include: Montjuic, Tibidabo, Búnkeres el Carmel, and Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi. 

What to eat in Barcelona?

Barcelona is home to some of the finest Catalan cuisine. It is in the perfect location to have the freshest ingredients, benefiting from its proximity to the sea as well as the countryside and mountains nearby. Catalan cuisine isn’t flashy or elaborate, it is quality ingredients prepared in a way that creates a taste sensation that will stay with you on your holidays to Barcelona. 

It is the combination of the sea and the mountains that make the cuisine of this city so rich. In addition, the city has evolved through many different eras since its founding in 1249, enduring periods of poverty and prosperity, which has contributed to the dishes that were created here and are still made to this day. These are some of the most famous dishes you can try in Barcelona:


Escalivada is a famous appetiser in Barcelona that is a mix of capsicum, aubergine, onions, and roasted tomatoes, seasoned and cut into strips. It is usually served on toast with anchovies on top. This dish is truly typical of Catalan cuisine. 

Pan con tomate

Pan con tomate or ‘bread with tomato’ is famous all over Spain but has its origin in Catalonia when in times of poverty, people had to find ways to soften old bread. Now it has practically become a delicacy that is eaten every day.


Sausages are a significant part of Catalan cuisine and are eaten for breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner. They are typically eaten with pan con tomate. Common sausages you’ll find include fuet, butifarra, and llonganissa. 


Calçots are a typical Catalan dish that originated to deal with the surplus of calçots (a cross between a spring onion and a leek) each year in the winter. It is cooked on the grill and once at the table, peeled with your hands and dipped in a ‘romesco’ sauce. It is one of the most Catalan traditions you can find. 

Crema Catalana

Crema Catalana is the most famous dessert in Barcelona. It consists of custard served in an earthenware bowl with a layer of caramelised sugar on its surface. You can find it in almost any restaurant and you won’t be disappointed.
