36 hours in Barcelona, Spain

783
-1

Published on

Barcelona is always gravitating toward what’s next, what’s new. Sure, the Catalan capital in northeastern Spain is rich with historic sites and classic tourist activities — browsing the centuries-old Boqueria market, studying the works of Picasso and Miró, posing with Gaudí’s frosted fairytale houses in Parc Güell — but the city’s current dynamism is rooted elsewhere. To discover what’s fueling Barcelona right now, look to new contemporary art museums and small galleries. Look to the bold tapas bars and buzzing night life rejuvenating outlying neighborhoods. Look to the new, but make time for old favorites too.

36 hours in Barcelona, Spain

  1. 1. 36 Hours in Barcelona, Spain Barcelona is always gravitating toward what’s next, what’s new. Sure, the Catalan capital in northeastern Spain is rich with historic sites and classic tourist activities — browsing the centuries-old Boqueria market, studying the works of Picasso and Miró, posing with Gaudí’s frosted fairytale houses in Parc Güell — but the city’s current dynamism is rooted elsewhere. To discover what’s fueling Barcelona right now, look to new contemporary art museums and small galleries. Look to the bold tapas bars and buzzing night life rejuvenating outlying neighborhoods. Look to the new, but make time for old favorites too. Source: Mygola.com
  2. 2. Day 1 Casa Mila-La Pedrera Barcelona Everything in this building is curved and undulating. Its originality and the techniques used in its construction are surprising throughout. This is one of the best-known works of the architect Gaudí, and is one of the symbols of Barcelona. It was built between 1906 and 1912, an ...
  3. 3. Day 1 Casa Batllo Barcelona Next door to the Casa Amatller, Casa Batlló was designed by Gaudí in 1905 and is hands-down the superior of the three works in the manzana. Using sensuous curves in iron and stone and glittering, luminous trencadis on the facade, the Casa Batlló is widely thought to represent ...
  4. 4. Day 1 Palau Güell Barcelona Gaudí built this mansion in 1886-89 for textile baron Count Eusebi de Güell Bacigalupi, his main patron and promoter. Gaudí's principal obsession in this project was to find a way to illuminate this seven-story house tightly surrounded by other buildings in the cramped quarter ...
  5. 5. Day 1 Tickets Restaurant, Barcelona Barcelona Ferran Adrià, of elBulli fame, and his brother Albert opened these adjoining tapas and cocktail bars in early 2011 to much international fanfare and curiosity. Tickets proposes contemporary tapas, which, coming from the creators of elBulli, means ice-cream cones of salmon eggs, ...
  6. 6. Day 1 Club 41º, Barcelona Barcelona Technically, the buzzy new dining spot 41° in Barcelona, Spain, isn’t a restaurant — it’s a cocktail bar with snacks. But when the surname of the two lead proprietors is Adrià — as in Ferran and Albert, of the famed three-Michelin-starred restaurant El Bulli — such di ...
  7. 7. Day 1 Eclipse Barcelona Designed by interior designer Isabel López Vilalta, Eclipse Barcelona is the most anticipated new addition to city’s vibrant nightlife scene. Needless to say that it will establish itself as the city’s ultimate entertainment lifestyle destination. Rise up to the 26th floor t ...
  8. 8. Day 2 Baluard Barcelona Speaking of Barceloneta most people probably only think of the beach and seafood restaurants. Few chance a stroll through this charismatic maritime neighborhood to experience its peculiar flair. Those who do will be rewarded with this good, honest bakery located in the center of ...
  9. 9. Day 2 Bogatell Beach Barcelona Bogatell is approximately 600 m long and is one of the beaches that was revitalised when the Barcelona seafront was restored during the 1990s. The Bogatell beach is one of the most appreciated amongst Barcelona coastal visitors, amongst other reasons, due to its safety. The avera ...
  10. 10. Day 2 Formatgeria La Seu Barcelona Scotswoman Katherine McLaughlin has put together the Gothic Quarter's most delightful cheese-tasting sanctuary on the site of an ancient buttery. A dozen artisanal cow, goat, and sheep cheeses from all over Spain, and olive oils can be tasted and taken home. La Seu is named for a ...
  11. 11. Day 2 El Xampanyet Barcelona Nothing much has changed in this, one of the city’s best-known cava bars. Plant yourself at the bar or seek out a table jammed up against the old-style tiled walls for a glass or three of cava and an assortment of tapas, such as the tangy boquerons en vinagre.
  12. 12. Day 2 Museu Picasso Barcelona The Picasso Museum is surprisingly extensive, consisting of five palaces on Calle Montcada that have been beautifully restored and joined up to create an amazing space. Picasso lived in Barcelona in his youthful years, when he started out as an artist. He always wanted his museum ...
  13. 13. Day 2 Museu Europeu d’Art Modern Barcelona The Museu Europeu d'Art Modern was opened in June 2011 in the lovingly restored Palau Gomis. Without doubt, the Museum of European Modern Art is among the most successful re-openings in the diverse museum landscape of Barcelona. Located within the charming Old Town district of El ...
  14. 14. Day 2 Ras Barcelona A bookshop, a gallery and an experimental exhibition space, ideal if you're shopping for the latest coffeetable book from your favourite photographer, authoritative volumes on architecture and contemporary art, the freshest design publications or a fashion magazine. With an inte ...
  15. 15. Day 2 Mutt Barcelona In the era of Internet and the midst of an economic crisis, starting up a bookshop or an art gallery is a risky and daunting task, so hats off to the founders of Mutt who had the courage to do both at once. Opened last December in IguapopGallery’s old space on Comerç street, M ...
  16. 16. Day 2 CaixaForum Barcelona CaixaForum, the Cultural and Social centre of La Caixa’s Community Projects, is housed in what was once a factory. Designed in the Art-Nouveau style by the architect Puig i Cadafalch, and it has become one of Barcelona’s most dynamic, active and lively cultural centres. Throu ...
  17. 17. Day 2 The Magic Fountain of Montjuic Barcelona The magic fountain is a spectacular display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics - if you mix all these elements together in just the right combinations, you end up with pure magic! The magic fountain is a "must see" when you come to Barcelona and highly recommend ...
  18. 18. Day 2 Lolita Tapería Barcelona When known as Inopia, this place quickly became Barcelona’s tapas place de jour. Instead of trying to surprise and defy expectations, here the ambition was to meet and exceed them. No fancy foams, just fresh quality ingredients and simple but excellent made-to-order dishes. The ...
  19. 19. Day 2 Xixbar Barcelona Xix Bar - Barcelona is a modern day gin palace. Lively and eccentric and claim to have the best Basquestyle gin and tonics in Barcelona as well as a selection of mojitos and cocktails. This is one of the bars that is putting Poble Sec on the nightlife map. More than 20 gins at y ...
  20. 20. Day 3 Bar Lobo Barcelona The watchword is moody in this stark, monochrome space, with punky artwork from celebrated graffiti artists. It comes alive with DJs and studied lounging at night, however, and by day its terrace is a peaceful space for coffee or breakfast, given the proximity to La Rambla. Recen ...
  21. 21. Day 3 Sagrada Família Barcelona If you only have time for one sightseeing outing, this should be it. La Sagrada Família inspires awe with its sheer verticality and, in the true manner of the great medieval cathedrals it emulates, it’s still not finished after more than 100 years. Work is proceeding apace, ho ...
