Having been to Barcelona quite a few times, (and also constantly coming up with more and more reasons to keep returning) we figured it was high time to share some of the best very things to do in Barcelona.
All tried, tested and absolutely loved!
I’m guessing you’re not really struggling for reasons to want to visit the city so I won’t bother going into that, instead let’s just jump right into the best things to do in Barcelona, Spain!
1.) Sagrada Família
By far one of the most popular landmarks in Barcelona, this famously unfinished cathedral is one of the most unique buildings in the world – particular so as it’s one of the only buildings that have a foot both in the past and the future.
The past – future connection allows makes it possible to both appreciate it’s old history and anticipate it’s future glory.
2.) Barcelona Cathedral
Whenever the more generic title Barcelona Cathedral is referred to, people’s mind goes to Sagrada Família, right? Well, it’s not in fact a cathedral in itself,
This cathedral is fully titled The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia is actually much older and more established than Sagrada Família and well worth seeing in Barcelona.
Dating as far back as the 13th century, this Cathedral is steeped in rich history and is one of the most impressive sites to see in Barcelona.
This isn’t the easiest of the sights to get to but is definitely worth going out of your way to see.
Montserrat is one of the more natural landmarks located near Barcelona that should be on every traveller’s Barcelona sightseeing itinerary
4.) Park Güell
Another one for the photographer’s out there, this public park in Barcelona boasts amazing views and vivid colours that have now come to be symbolic of a trip to Barcelona. The view from the park is also worth the trip here.
5.) Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC)
It’s almost a given that you need to visit a museum when you’re in a city like Barcelona but even on its own, this museum is a sight to behold itself.
Also, if you can, make sure to visit after 3 pm on Saturdays, it becomes totally free to enter after this time.
