Barcelona was originally named Barcino, and later the Romans, around 3rd century B.C., chose this city as the capital of that region, and there are some remains which can be found in modern day Barcelona. Now, it is one of the most famous cities in Spain, cradled in the northwest of the warm Mediterranean Sea. Its proximity to France makes it a very popular tourist destination, and that is why we are going to name some of the things you should definitely check out and try, if you ever get the chance to end up in Barcelona.

  • Visit!

One of the world’s most famous sites, even though it is incomplete, it has made its way on a UNESCO World Heritage List which gives it special importance. The construction of this gigantic basilica started in 1882, becoming one of the greatest works of art combining the Gothic and Art Nouveau style. It is being built from private donations, and that is one of the reasons why construction has been progressing so slowly, and has even been interrupted by a civil war. The basilica’s purpose is to atone for some wrong deed of the original financier, which gives it that mystical aura. The three entrances it has are there to represent three main virtues: Hope, Faith, and Love. When in Barcelona, this is a place you have to visit this and see this work of art that will leave you breathless.

  • Eat!

Barselona food

Tapas are small plates on which food is served, usually in addition to drinks. No, they are not appetizers, even though they are on a toothpick. There is no original recipe for tapa, as anything can be served, and they range from small snacks to smaller meals, such as pork stew called callos – so, anything in between is possible. They are served in bars, and have become a kind of tourist attraction,

since they are not full meals, they can be eaten anytime you want. Think of them like this: in America, people eat peanuts or chips with beer, in Barcelona, you eat tapas. They can be made out of almost anything, and that is why each time you order, it will come as a small, but delicious surprise. If you want to try more delicious food, you can always visit some of the best restaurants in Barcelona.

  • Explore!

The final, and the best piece of advice, if you have an opportunity to visit this city, would be to explore. Barcelona is a very large and extremely beautiful city with an amazing nightlife.  You can explore it with or without a map. The less complicated you make it, the more fun it will be and the more you will see. Enjoy everything you come across, try and visit some of the popular tourist attractions, but also create your own adventures, visit bars, local clubs, and small shops off the beaten track. Ride a bike through the city, walk, or rent a Vespa and just drive while the wind blows through your hair.  You’ll create wonderful memories and have more than a couple of new stories to tell to your friends and family, and with a simple camera, you’ll be able to capture all the perfect moment.

It doesn’t matter if you are going alone on a backpacking trip through Europe, or if you are going on a road trip with your family or friends, there are some European cities you have to visit. Even if you live in America (especially if you live in America), Barcelona is one the most visited cities in Europe, giving you an opportunity to experience a diverse, rich culture. From food to nightlife, everything is exciting. There are plenty of museums which are worth visiting so, plan your stay there carefully. You do not want to miss out on anything. Explore as much as you can, try to see everything, but enjoy every single step of the way.

    I love the explore bit better (the couple in that pix could easily be my wife and I!) though I must confess that when I eventually land on European soil, I’d be bend on seeing other popular cities and monuments first.

    The article was however informative – and the food looked quite attractive too!

    Do have a great day…and never stop writing!

    Always,

  17. Sign me up! What is the weather like during the summer’s in Barcelona? And can you get around pretty easily if you can only speak English?

  18. Oh my!! I would love to visit Barcelona. My brother has been there. He lives in dubai . He and my sister-in law went for there 12th anniversary. The pics were amazing. I So want to go.

  19. Get immersed in the Catalan culture!
    Everyone knows about Corrida in Spain (that is actually illegal in Barcelona and in the rest of Catalonia), but that are plenty of traditions that you have the opportunity to witness in barcelona: Castellers, Capgros, Correfoc, Ball de Bastons, Sardana…
    And for the food I would also suggest Calçots (available only at the end of the Winter, delicious!), Churros con chocolate, Butifarra amb mongetes…
