Top Barcelona Insider Tips
1. Visit the Sagrada Familia
One of Barcelona’s top attractions is the Sagrada Familia. This large Roman Catholic Church was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The church is still not completed but it is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
2. Enjoy some cheap drinks
You have to check out “La Champañeria” in Barceloneta…
A hidden treasure with a great atmosphere and very cheap cava.
Don´t miss the lovely genuine tapas bar El Xampanyet at Calle Montcada 20, same street as Picasso museum. They make their own cava :) Make a stop on your way back from the beach at very genuine and very busy tapas bar – Can Paixano at Calle Reina Cristina 7, just a hole in the wall but pretty amazing! And for some cheese tasting head for Formatgería La Seu at Dagueria 16 in Barrio Gótico, taste of three cheese & a glass of wine is only 2,50 euros!
‘La Champañería’ is a popular bar that is actually called ‘Can Paixano’ but everyone refers to it as the former. This bar is actually very small and only has standing room but it still draws a great crowd. They are renowned for serving cheap but good cava (Spanish sparkling wine) and hot and cold bocadillos (sandwiches). You will find a great atmosphere and great prices here.
3. Eat away from the ‘tourist traps’
Give it a try to Meson David! It’s an old tavern and it’s out of the touristic way! They serve very traditional Spanish food. Big dishes and good prices!
If you’re looking for some great Spanish food make sure to check out Meson David. This Spanish restaurant has a great atmosphere and some delicious traditional Spanish dishes on offer.
4. Discover Las Ramblas
Wander “Las Ramblas” at night-time. It’s when the city truly comes to life. Don’t stay near Las Ramblas if you want a good night’s sleep! Take your time & sit in one of La Ramblas restaurant gardens, drink Sangria and enjoy your life.
Las Ramblas is Barcelona’s central street that is over a kilometre long. Las Ramblas is lined with shops, restaurants and bars although many savvy travellers will advise against frequenting many of these places as the prices can be very high. It’s a great area to walk through as it’s full of people and has a great atmosphere.
5. Be careful with your belongings like you would at home
laça de Catalunya is great and Barceloneta such an amazing area to hanging around and there is many places to see around the Rambla Passeig de Gracia… If you are an artist musician or just open your mind and you will love it.
Don’t walk out of the night clubs onto the main beach and think it is a great spot to sleep. Will get pick pocketed.
