Default Things to do in Barcelona

We will be in Barcelona for about a day and a half prior to leaving for a 12 day Med. cruise on RC in July of this year. What are some of the must do things in Barcelona that we can squeeze in prior to embarking on our cruise? Any and all ideas are greatly appreciated.

If you are going to stay in Barcelona you better try a Hotel near Paseo de Gracia or Plaza de Catalunya so you will be near a lot of monuments.
Of course you can have an organized tour in the city but it's easy to do by yourself because you can take Barcelona Bus Turistic from the center.

See this link:
http://bcnshop.barcelonaturisme.com/...acDfIGDfdnPOon

You must visit some modernist buildings: La Pedrera and Casa Batll├│ in the same Paseo de Gracia. The Gaudi's style church Sagrada Familia.

From Cataluya Square you can visit the Liceo Theatre, the Boqueria Marquet, The Rambla (street, take care with your bag in this place! ) the Gotic Quarter and Santa Mar├*a del Mar Church and the Cathedral. Colon Statue near the Port Vell, the mall Maremagnum, the acuarius and de Imax 3D cinema.

Another beautiful places are Tibidabo Mountain (there is a teleferic) and Montjuic Mountain, the Espaya Square.

There are many interesting places.
Best regards

I recommend a city tour - especially one that focuses on architecture. The work of Gaudi is incredible, especially La Sagrada Familia.

I agree with Paul, The Sagrada Fam├*lia is the most famous work of Gaud├*, to which he dedicated all his life to the extreme that he lived inside the precinct to closely follow the works. And it is the unique great temple at present in construction everywhere in the world.


Best regards

I am staying there in October, staying at hotel Colon, which, I think, is right on La Rambla area??? I saw there were a few tourist companies that take you out for the day, but I want to try some tapas restaurants. Does any one have any good restaurants in mind. Is the Gaudi area near Colon?

49erfan,
The Hotel Colon is not exactly in Gaudi area, if you mean the area where La Pedrera and Batll├│ House are, because Gaudi monuments are almost everywhere in the city! So I think you mean the Paseo de Gracia area.

The Hotel Col├│n is near Gotic Quarter, wonderful place to have a walk and see the Cathedral (in front the hotel) and Santa Mar├*a del Mar Church, the Palacio de la Generalitat (Goverment Palace), Sant Jaume square and many beautiful streets. Don't forget to visit Plaza Real and Liceu Theatre. All this buildings are in the area near the Hotel.

And if you go up Ramblas you'll find Catalunya Square and Paseo de Gracia, where you find Casa Batll├│ (really beautiful) on the left side of the street and La Pedrera (you must visit this wonderful building) on the right side, both buildings are in Gaudi style.

In Paseo de Gracia, near La Pedrera, there is an interesting shop to visit, Vin├žon (visit the first floor where there in a fireplace really impresive). Sure you'll like it !

Well, the hotel is not very far from Paseo de Gracia, where you will find a lot of restaurants to try some tapas, as I'm not from Barcelona I don't know if they are the best for tapas, but when I'm there I go to this restaurants in Paseo de Gracia, there are lots of them.

"The good restaurant" depends on what you like to eat. There are many good and expensive restaurants there. You better visit this web:

I'm sorry for my English!

Best regards and have a good time in Barcelona.

thanks for your help. I get in about 9:00 (after airport checking out and taxi ride) so I want to see a lot in the morning/afternoon and then concentrate on the restaurants at night. I circled the areas you gave me on my map

I'm Staying in Barcelona after my cruise in August. Where to stay is a matter of what you are looking for. We are staying at the Royal Ramblas. I had read that this area was akin to 42nd street in New York. Flashy loud and alot going on. I like that kind of atmosphere. They also have a double decker hop a bus that can get you around the city and to the sites. I have not been there yet this is only what I have read. Please send me a post after your cruise and let me know what you think.Best of luck to you.

Rob

thanks, I checked a few tour places on line; some have one day tours and half day, but i get in at 9:00 and that's when they leave, so, if I ever make it back again, I will stay 2 days to try them. there is a tapas tour for 73.00 at night which I am going to try. It visits a few restaurants and includes wine and dinner. It leaves from the hotel 1898 (I think), or in the La Rambla area.

Hello everybody!!
I'm from Barcelona, so I think that I can help you.

In only one day you won't be able to see all the city, because it's very big, and there are interesting and beautiful things in ll around the city.

But what you can't miss is:
- Monuments foms Gaud├*, such:
- Sagrada Fam├*lia (the most important monument)
- Casa Batll├│
- Pedrera or Casa Mil├* (it's the same with 2 different names)
- Parc G├╝ell (it's a very big park, if you are only one day in Barcelona you won't have time enough to see it well)
- Colon (it's nxt to the port)
- Squares:
- Pla├ža Catalunya (very known for having a lot of pigneons)
- Pla├ža Espanya (if you can, you gotta on on Saturday at 9:00 pm (I think) because the fountain has music, colors and it goes up and down, and it's really beautiful)
- Ramblas (this street starts at Colon monument)
- Poble espanyol (going up from Pla├ža Espanya)

At this momet I don't remember anything else that you can't miss if you go only a day; and it's more, if you don't go runnig, you won't have time enough to see it all.

I hope to have helped you.
And if you have any question, ask me.

What if we just want to get off the ship and find a nice little restaurant ourselves for Tapas, could you make a recommendation or two with pricing?

It may be that you have been and gone by now but personally, yes, I would just wonder off and find your own place. Tapas are small dishes not meant to make a whole meal on themselves and they are served throughout the day and night. Most bars serve them.

Now, in terms of price, as everywhere if you sit just outside the marina or in a street cafe in the middle of Las Ramblas for instance you will pay a lot more than if you venture a few streets off the main streets, or say in front of monuments etc. If you just want to watch people pass by but not spend so much on the tapas, find a nice little place, sample different things and then go back to sit in one of the outside establishments for coffee or a drink.

The advantage of tapas is that, since they are small, you can sample a variety of things. I personally love squid but also Spanish omellette (tortilla) which is a sort of thick potato cake but very tasty (nothing like an ordinary omelette or the Mexican tortillas). Aubergines are a Catalan speciality for instance and they do really nice stuffed ones. I wouldn't know which specific place to recommend as they are millions of bars serving them.

Now, if anyone wants a proper meal on a budget, try "menu del dia" (daily menu) there is normally a choice of two or three in each restaurant but it says what it is on the board outside so you could find one that appeals to you. This is normally very filling and reasonable. Of course for gourmet, there are excellent places also but personally whilst in Spain I would take advantage of the tapas idea.

Default things to do in barcelona

thanks. I think when I arrive, I want to walk to the market near la rambla (I think it is called Boqu.....) I want to pick up some wine and head toward Hard Rock Cafe for a pin and then venture back through the streets for food. At night, I will do the same. I wanted to do a tapas tour but it was 70.00 american and I keep reading the views that you can do it yourself without spending that much money. These sites are great, I want to enjoy Barcelona without having to spend a lot of money.

I'm pretty sure you'll do better pricewise by yourselves than by booking the tour. It's usually the case and honestly, tapas are everywhere. Even the very local not too posh looking bars serve them. They have them on the counter in fact. The Gothic Quarter is very near Las Ramblas and it's a very picturesque and nice place to eat outside or have a drink. If you want alcohol and especially wine, find a Spanish bar, the multinational chain ones will give you less and charge more. Wine in Spain is reasonably priced (much more than in the UK, where I'm from).

On a budget you could try a menu del dia as I said for your main meal and then pick on the tapas to sample different things as and when you are hungry and they take you fancy.

Personally I would stay away from places that have very standard ones on set menus with pictures (tend to be commercialised, expensive and less authentic). If in doubt, follow the locals!

Have a lovely stay. I just love Barcelona!

I forgot to say, be very careful of pickpockets especially near Las Ramblas and general tourist traps and, okay, I'm going to sound patronising but amusing as they may be, do not attempt to engage in a sort of magic game with street vendors. You simply cannot win. I know it goes without saying but honestly, some people fall for it!

thanks, really, your help and advise is very good for people who never traveled to that area. I can't wait to get there; sounds like a lot of fun trying different stuff. I am aware of pickpockets, I plan to leave all of my stuff at the hotel and travel with as little euros as possible.

A body belt is a good idea. Also bear in mind that in Spain they ask you for ID for everything, like paying with a credit card, but if they are somewhere close to your body they are safe.

thanks, I always take out a certain amount of cash for the day. Since they ask for ID when using credit cards, I won't use them. I will be there for one full day, so using euros will be okay with me, but I will remember that if I come back again and stay for more than a day.

About the pickpokets, well, they are everywhere. I don't know why people think in Barcelona when they listen this word. It's true that in Las Rsmblas and in the Magic FOuntain of Montjuic in the Plaza Espa├▒a there are some, but you must be very unluky if they steal you, because there are a lot of people in this places. But with this I don't mind that you shouldn't be careful.
