What to do in Barcelona ?
Follow our storyguide to find the top things to do and best places to visit!
Stroll through the Güell Park for Gaudí lovers
Spanish architecture is rich in emotions. After the visit to the monumental Sagrada Familia or the discovery of the amazing facade of Casa Battló, on Passeig de Gràcia, replay the final scene of the Spanish Inn with a beautiful "hombre" in this garden-park listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Have a drink at W
The sublime W hotel, whose immense silhouette stands at the end of the beach, offers an unparalleled view of Barcelona and its bay. Having a drink on the rooftop of this hotel, designed by Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill, is a must on any trip to Barcelona.
Walk through the Boqueria market
The Mercat de la Boqueria is the heart of the city. This covered market welcomes tourists and locals every day from 6am to 9pm to find the best fresh products. Between stalls, restaurants, tastings and all-you-can-eat cocina classes, don't forget to try the famous fresh fruit juice.
Going out at the Moog Club
In Barcelona, self-proclaimed capital of the European party, the nightlife is not lacking in rhythm or places to party. After the traditional evening paseo, go to the Moog Club, the trendy nightclub in Carrer de l'Arc del Teatre, to dance until the early hours of the morning to electronic music.
Taste the "pan con tomate"
This simple local specialty is a delight for all lovers of Mediterranean cuisine. The pan con tomate, as its name suggests, is made of bread rubbed with garlic and fresh tomato and topped with a slice of Serrano ham. Try it at La Bodegeta, a nice wine and tapas bar on the Rambla.

Barcelona, a cosmopolitan city par excellence
From Barceloneta beach and its mojito vendors to Las Ramblas and its fans, each neighbourhood has its own atmosphere and there's something for everyone!
The Catalan capital is characterised by its culinary habits: café con gelo on the terrace of the Nabucco Tiramisu in Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia, local beers in the small inner courtyard of the tapas bar La Ikas or a glass of chilled vermouth. For a moment of sweetness, the tea room Café Camelia offers scones, garlic tomato tarts, banana cake. To discover the small local producers, you can buy your supplies at the authentic Abaceria market. We also test a Spanish specificity: the table football with two feet for players at the Bar de Retro.
Barcelona and its streets
One thing to keep in mind when finding your way around: Barcelona's streets very often change names at intersections. Forged balconies at each window bear witness to an outward-looking city: the street, where it's nice to live and stroll despite the mercury, which can rise to 35° in June. The plane trees, pines and palms provide air and breathing space. We don't forget to hydrate ourselves with a fresh multicoloured juice at Crudi's and even to nibble some aros de cebolla at La Trocadero. And if you feel like taking a break from the greenery, head for the cactus garden of Mossen Costa i Llobera or the Citadel Park with its boats that take you to the middle of a pond in a few strokes of the oars.
You can choose to take the height to admire Barcelona. Two superb spots :
- The Arena which offers a panoramic view in the heart of the city.
- The Bunkers del Carmel for a 360° view of the sea and the mountains. A picnic at sunset can be a great opportunity to enjoy the view.
Barcelona is also a jewel of art nouveau. Discovering the eccentric works of Catalan Modernism that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List is an exciting way to explore Barcelona: the Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà, Casa Batlló, Casa Vicens, Parc Güell, the Hospital de Sant Pau where the architect Antoni Gaudí Gaudí died after being run over by a tram.
Finally, you can't get to Barcelona without taking a trip to the Costa Brava. The sandy beach of Tamariu whose tamarisk trees have given it its name is a wonderful glimpse of the many villages and coves that await us on this coast that runs along the Mediterranean to the French border.
