Hey guys so as I said in my last blog post I’m still on holiday in Croatia! Keep a look out for Croatia blog posts coming your way very soon. So continuing my series of 5 Things to see and do, I have chosen Barcelona. So without further ado let’s get to it!
La Sagrada Familia
The huge Cathedral designed by Antoni Gaudi, is absolutely incredible. Despite construction beginning in 1882 it isn’t due to be completed until 2028. For a price you can go inside the building and have a tour which takes you to the top of one of the spires, giving you an amazing view of the city. Whether you decide to go inside the Cathedral or not, it is most definitely a must see in Barcelona.
Parc Guell is another must see attraction in Barcelona. The park dedicated to Antoni Gaudi’s work. From the highest point you get an amazing view of the city leading all the way to the beach. You do have to pay a small fee to go into the park and I would definitely recommend booking in advance as only 300 people are allowed in the park at a time . I would most definitely recommend a visit to this gorgeous place
There isn’t a lot to say really about Barcelonetta beach other than it is absolutely gorgeous. Even if you don’t spend long here I would recommend a visit to see the gorgeous sandy beach and the sea. It is the perfect chill spot for a few hours after walking round the city.
La Ramblas is an amazing 1km long street in the centre of Barcelona with tonnes of little stalls selling everything. The atmosphere is incredible walking down this street, there are tonnes of street performers and musicians all the way down the stretch. I haven’t really got much more to say other than it is 100% worth the visit.
Camp Nou football stadium is the home to FC Barcelona and is a phenomenal place to visit. The atmosphere is amazing both inside and outside the stadium. Not being the biggest football fan myself I was slightly sceptical of going but I honestly would go back time and time again. You do have to pay to enter the stadium but even if you don’t go into the stadium I would recommend going and having something to eat and drink on the onsite bar as it was honestly some of the best food I ate the whole trip. I would 100% recommend a visit to Camp Nou.
I hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more posts coming soon!
