If you only have a day to yourself in Barcelona, do not be defeatist, there are still plenty of things you can achieve to experience and get to you in your short visit. The possibilities are mildly endless, but here we give a proposal for what you can achieve to experience in just 24 hours. We will introduce you to, among others the world-famous cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, the beautiful Park Guell, the cozy La Rambla and especially Picasso Museum.
Be out early and start the day by going to Gaudi’s cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, and experience one of Barcelona’s most famous landmarks. Be aware that the queues can be very long in high season and take care of your valuables when you stay at the very touristy areas.
If you want to reach to get some shopping during your visit, you may want to take the metro on to Passeig de Gràcia. This street offers all kinds of shopping opportunities while you can still continue your cultural adventure with Gaudi’s architecture that can be admired in the houses; Casa Batllo and Casa Mila.
Lunch is the biggest meal of the Spaniards. Stay on Passeig de Gràcia, but if you want to avoid turistfællerne and not to pay too much for less good food, go down some of the side streets where on almost every street corner hides a more local and cozy restaurant. Our suggestions for obvious måtid you should have with you during your visit is paella.
After lunch it’s time for a little relaxation and to sink today’s big meal. Here we suggest a stroll in Gaudi’s Park Guell. This is a beautiful, cozy park with stunning exquisitely over Barcelona.
If you care much for art, one can not be Picasso Museum a visit without. Here you can experience and understand the whole of Picasso’s life and art dating back to his youth. Again, you should be aware of long queues and your valuables.
If you do not have to musseer and would rather spend your afternoon with a little more speed, the Rambla certainly worth a visit. This street is located in the heart of Barcelona and here there is always life and time in it. The ambiance of Las Ramblas will set the stage for the evening’s events, and you can usefully start the evening out with a Spanish beer in the afternoon sun.
Now we are approaching evening and here offers Barcelona a myriad of options. We highly recommend you to lay roads past El Born is one of Barcelona’s oldest areas. This is a range by means lots of modern bars, cafes and restaurants. Here we recommend that you try the tapas. These exquisite Spanish specialties will also go hand in hand with a jug of Sangria and El Born’s warm atmosphere.
After you’ve eaten and charged, there is no limit to what Barcelona has to offer you in terms of cocktail bars and discos. One day in Barcelona should not be without a taste of Spain’s answer to champagne. Here we suggest that you continue your evening at one of Barcelona’s best cava bars Can Paixano. If you still are filled with energy and not yet saturated by Barcelona, you can move down towards the harbor. Here you will find a lot of discos where you can party your last hours together with people from all over the world.
