For this second part of my Barcelona city guide, I take you to one of the most emblematic places of the city, and you’ll also discover other great entertaining activities that are worth it if you stay a few days in Barcelona!
I have been to Sagrada Familia, and it was absolutely wonderful! The architecture is terrific, as well as the stained glasses that bring light to the cathedral. I find it rare and incredible nowadays that a project of such hugeness can be carried out decades after decades, in a society where everything must be done instantly… Don’t you find it beautiful?
After visiting Sagrada Familia, I advise you to climb to Park Güell, from where you’ll have an overwhelming view of the city.
It was designed by the same architect than the Sagrada Familia (Gaudí) and it’s such a lovely place to take a walk and enjoy the view.
The third « place to be » in Barcelona is extremely eclectic because it’s as well attended by citizens of Barcelona (of every ages) than by tourists (like me!).
PALO ALTO market takes place every sundays, and it’s a must-see if you’re passing by the city! There you can find food trucks, vintage corners, young designers brands and so much more things! It’s really nice and friendly, there is music, food, and a lot of things to see (and to shop!)
WARNING: You’ll have to queue to attend the market. It is very crowded!
If you’re hungry and you’d like to eat a good paëlla, go to Martinez! Not only it is the best restaurant of paëlla in Barcelona but it also allows you to have a great view on the city.
Hope this city guide made you want to visit (and maybe discover) the stunning city of Barcelona, and that my tips and adresses will be helpful 😉
