So i thought i would share my top 5 Things To Do In Barcelona The ones which i got up to and enjoyed the most! Get ready to que awkward touristy posing and the dodgy outfits as i was big tourist on this trip plus after being so organised i left my packing until the last minute and forgot way too much of my stuff! (sob!)

1. Park Guell – After taking art at GCSE in school, i learned all about Gaudi even based a lot of my GCSE art work on him, so to visit the city where his work is there to see in the flesh is just an amazing experience! He was such a fantastic architect and you can really see this in Park Guell along with enjoying a day out in the sunshine looking at all the beautiful buildings & sculptures! One word of advice for anything in Barcelona is plan your trip & book tickets in advance!

2. La Boqueria – Me and Adam stumbled upon this by accident but everyone has a soft spot for looking around markets don’t they? This is one of the most beautiful markets full of huge stalls with fruit, veg, fish, ice cream, smoothies and so much more! The colours are just beautiful definitely something worth spending a little time looking around! Plus its free to enter it just costs you whatever food etc takes your fancy!


3. Barcelona Zoo – I am a huge animal lover, so when our hotel told us Barcelona had a zoo i just knew i had to visit, although i didn’t have high hopes at first with past experiences at holiday Zoos! Barcelona Zoo was fantastic probably one of my favourite things i did while being there, they had so many interesting & unusual animals plus you could higher a little buggy to drive around the zoo in!


4. Barcelona Nou Camp Football Stadium – OK, so this one was definitely for Adam, but when i was there i did really enjoy myself. It’s all pretty much indoors until you get to the stadium itself but there is really so much information and cool football memorabilia to look at! Plus in the stadium they have a bar which you can eat at/have a drink while looking out at the football pitch! A day out which everyone can enjoy!

5. Sagrada Familia – If you ever go to Barcelona the Sagrada Familia IS A MUST! It’s actually breath taking just to look at, but make sure you book your tickets in advance as they book up pretty quickly! Inside it gets even more beautiful, we had an audio guide which told everything we needed to know! I would really recommend the audio guide! The only thing we missed out on was going up into the towers so like i said make sure you plan and book your tickets before hand!

So there you have it, those are my top 5 things to do in Barcelona. There are so many things to do and  Barcelona is such a beautiful city filled with so many beautiful buildings and gorgeous shops! So if your looking for a weekend away somewhere hot i would recommend Barcelona 100%!

    Hi there! I’m from Barcelona. One thing I recommend doing during the summer to my friends is a visit to Casa Batlló, there’s a concert at 9 pm at the roof terrace so, you can visit Gaudi’s building and then have a drink and listen to live music, very cool! ¡Hasta la vista! :)

    I love Barcelona. I visit it at least once a year because some friends live there. Everything you posted is great – the Camp Nou is wonderful!! One of my favourite places is the place called ‘ the bunkers ‘ in which you can see the most beautiful views in the world of Barcelona!!!

    Ah I’d love to go back! I’ve been once before and my parents took me to most of these places, but as a sulky 9 year old I just wanted to eat ice cream by the pool! xx

    Barcelona is truly one of my favourite city!
    Did you go up the tower in La Sagrada Familia? You can pretty much see the entire Barcelona below. It was stunning.

    Also the view of Barcelona + the sea from Park Guell is just gorgeous!
