BARCELONA

» Go see the wonders created by Gaudi and Dali! «

…and you will want to stay forever! The Catalan capital is a place where you should remember your childhood days when playing hide and seek was so much fun. Playing it and then getting lost, at least for one month was what I wanted to do.

Gothic Quarter

» Enjoy the city by getting lost «

This is what we felt when strolling down the narrow medieval streets on Saturday evening. There are so many things to do in the Gothic Quarter – let yourself be surprized. We didn’t have any sightseeing plans, as we don’t usually do when going on a city break, but Barcelona managed to show us its overwhelming beauty in only three days.

Magic Fountain of Montjuic – very very crowded but worth the hassle

Casa Batllo

» Whitness some architectural miracles «

I really tried not to photograph every single adorable balcony but it was almost impossible – even on the scooter my eyes were fixed on the fascinating mini urban gardens (I was not driving). This was possible with the help of a rented scooter which took us from Park Güell to Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Montjuic Caste, the Magic Fountain and many more.

Palo Alto – even if it’s closed, don’t give up. Ring the bell until someone answers. They also host vintage markets

» Time out in a green oasis «

If you want to recover from a day of visiting and take a break from all the tourists, I suggest relaxing in the green oasis of Palo Alto, where artists share an industrial complex for different creative projects.

Parc de la Ciutadella – you could easily spend an entire day here. From museums to lakes, many artists and even a zoo they have everything

Flamenco Show – you can see it in many restaurants in the Gothic Quarter

» Enjoy the easy life «

You don’t really need to see everything in three days. Just go bar-hopping and try different tapas, feel the rhythms of flamenco shows, drink some sangria and dare to hang out on the mysterious streets at night.
