    I highly recommend taking a Free Walking Tour to discover the Gothic Quarter. So much to see and learn about!
    There are lots of small bars and restaurants, so be sure to check out Trip Advisor before settling on one. I was rather disappointed by the Churros y Chocolate at one place, despite having high Google reviews.

    Once in a lifetime experience! Gaudi was an amazing artist who saw the world and was able to design in a way for us, mere mortals, to be transported to another place. La Familia Sagrada is an incredible place to visit. Definitely a place you do not want to be rushed. You will want to watch the light stream through the windows, the sculptures depicting the scenes from the Bible. An incredible church that is hard to put into words. Buy your tickets early and go with a guide otherwise you will be stuck in a very long line!

    This was so much fun! I like seeing old ruins of cities so this was perfect for me. However, I will say that better signage telling people where to buy tickets would be a good addition. When my friend and I first arrived, we couldn’t figure out where the museum was or where to buy tickets. Other than that, it was a great experience!

    A beautiful spot to enjoy Old Spain. Right off the Rambla. Many restaurants to enjoy. This is a must see - especially after you get bombarded with souvenir booths and sketchy eateries on the Rambla. Take a break here. Enjoy.

    A spectacular square, with a wide variety of restaurants and pubs, great for the beginning of a beautiful night in this city

    The price of €9 is a little steep considering that this museum is on the smaller side. The audioguide was fantastic and gave a lot of info that I would've missed out on. The museum covers the history of Marijuana and hemp from ancient times, the wars, to pop culture. There is a large collection of glass bongs some of which are nothing less than pieces of pure art. The section on the history of hemp was really fascinating, and even the section about the legality of marijuana was more information than lobbying. However, the exhibit on how marijuana affects the body was very lacking and spoke more about CBD oil than marijuana itself.

    Enjoyed a pleasant walk around the port starting from the city centre, we had a cloudy windy day with a spot of rain but I could see how during the summer months this would be a lovely place to spend most of the day, enjoyed looking at the yachts and can follow the walkway around to the beaches etc. There are places to eat/drink here with plenty of choice.

    The statue of Columbus symbolically completes the Rambla walk. However, I always do this after 9 PM, so I never visited the observation deck inside the column. Why does Columbus stand in Barcelona? Because his two remaining caravels, Pinta and Niña, returned to Spain in Barcelona, landing in Lisbon on the way. The monument itself was opened in 1888 in honor of the upcoming 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. Spain, which had already lost almost all the colonies in Latin America except Cuba, invited king Umberto I of Italy (the birthplace of Columbus) and President Cleveland of the United States to the celebration. 10 years after the short-lived war, the United States will take Cuba from Spain. The 7-meter-high Columbus by sculptor Raphael Atche points to the sea with the index finger of his right hand. However, the finger points not to America (it is behind), not to his native Genoa (it is on the left), but to Majorca. The message can be understood as follows: take the nearest ferry and after Barcelona to the Balearic Islands. What about Costa Brava and Costa Dorada, Columbus, eh?

    Its meant to be one of the great streets in Europe, but I was just a little underwhelmed by it. Only here for a day on a cruise stopover, it is still one of the highlights of Barcelona, but doesn't really justify the hype. Spent an hour or so walking the length up to the top square, the pedestrian street is full of small cafes, bars, stalls, and the few performing artists, and street vendors. Still worth a visit ...

    A nice and beautiful pier to walk around.

    There is a mall called: "Maremagnum" in the area.
    We took a cruise with the company "Las Golondrinas" at 11:30, the cruise lasted about 45 minutes and its price was around 10 euros per person.

    you have an an option to buy water and ice cream on cruise,
    the cruise is not guided but you can see all of Barcelona in the distance and the experience is very nice

    Tip: There is a discount for students

    Not bad! The shark tunnel was a big highlight and there is certainly lots of exhibits. Some enclosures were a little small e.g., penguins but overall we had a fairly nice time. This is more suited for children/families.

    I was a bit shocked to find out that this covered walkway as this is not a real bridge was only build in 1928. It was really beautiful and one would have thought it was much older.

    During the Spanish Civil War, on January 30th,1938, Franco's allies ( in this case Mussolini) carried intensive and repetitive aerial bombings that destroyed most of this square and killed dozens of children ! The walls of St Filip Neri have not been restaured in order to bear testimony, and still carry the scars of the heavy bombardments.

    Set on a small charming and hidden plazza next to Plazza de Catalunia, this simple romanesque church, one of the oldest in Barcelona, was built in the 12th century by the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. It was remodeled in the following centuries.The cloisters and the chapter house date from the 15th century and are clearly Gothic in style. The interior has a very clear reference to the design of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. But what makes this church very special is its involvment with the homeless. Volunteers distribute more than 200 meals a day to people who lost their jobs during the pandemia, and to homeless people. Tables are set in the cloisters to welcome them every day. In front of the church, there is a moving sculpture of Christ as a homeless sleeping on a bench. It is not easy to find, but walking along the Angel Gate pedestrian street, there is a small passage halfway into the church plaza.
