Get To Know The City, Skip The Lines!
Barcelona has many historical attractions and museums that may interest you. They are all worth it and they are incredibly beautiful, but the lines… oh god the lines! The good thing is that in most of these places, you can buy your ticket online and go at a specific time. This way, you’ll pay a cheaper price and the best possible experience. We recommend you plan your tours in advance because sometimes there are several weeks of waiting to be able to enter any of these tourist spots. Our fav places:

Get Lost In Its Narrow Streets And Flavour Its Delicious Food:
Barcelona has an incredible food scene, you will find incredible food from all over the world! We recommend you start at La Boquería Market, which is the city’s most famous and largest market. Spoiler alert: is full of tourists and people trying to sell you things! It’s definitely not what it used to be, but is worth to go visit. If you are looking for a more authentic one: Santa Caterina Market is your place

We also recommend you take a food tour or cooking class, this way you can get to know the local cuisine. Please avoid eating in tourist areas! The food is bad, too expensive and you won’t get the real Spanish experience.

Embrace the enchanting allure of Barcelona as a digital nomad, where every cobblestone-paved alleyway tells a story of centuries gone by. The Catalan capital’s maze-like streets invite you to disconnect from the virtual world and immerse yourself in its rich history, vibrant culture, and artistic spirit. Wander through the charming Barri Gothic with its medieval architecture, stumble upon hidden plazas bustling with local life, and find inspiration amidst the whimsical designs of Antoni Gaudí. There are 3 main ancestral neighborhoods: The Gothic, The Born, and The Raval.

> The Gothic Quarter: Stepping into this historical district feels like stepping into a time capsule, with its labyrinthine maze of narrow, winding streets and alleys that seem to whisper tales from centuries past Cobbleestone pathways guide you through a mesmerizing blend of architectural styles, from Roman remnants and medieval facades to Gothic churches and neoclassical structures. Quaint squares, like the Plaza Real, come alive with bustling cafes and lively street performers, while the towering Barcelona Cathedral stands as a sentinel of the area’s religious heritage. Lose yourself in the enchanting atmosphere as you explore hidden courtyards, artisan boutiques, and cozy tapas bars tucked away in unexpected corners.

>The Born: Also known as La Ribera, is a vibrant and charismatic neighborhood renowned for its unique blend of history, art, and modernity. Nestled adjacent to the Gothic Quarter, El Born exudes a distinct atmosphere characterized by its narrow streets, charming squares, and a lively energy that permeates every corner. The area’s medieval origins are evident in its well-preserved architecture, with centuries-old buildings displaying a harmonious fusion of Gothic and Catalan design. El Born is famous for being the home of the stunning Santa Maria del Mar Basilica, an iconic example of Catalan Gothic architecture. Yet, the neighborhood is far from stuck in the past; it’s a hub of creativity and innovation, housing contemporary art galleries, independent boutiques, and eclectic restaurants.  The Passeig del Born, a tree-lined promenade, serves as a central gathering point where locals and visitors can savor the bohemian ambiance. El Born’s unique character and eclectic offerings make it a captivating destination that seamlessly blends the allure of history with the pulse of modern life, and is known to be the best neighborhood for artists and creative people.

> The Raval: It is a dynamic and diverse neighborhood known for its eclectic atmosphere, this district offers a captivating blend of cultures, histories, and lifestyles. Once considered a rough and gritty area, El Raval has undergone significant transformation in recent years, evolving into a vibrant hub for creativity and cultural exchange. Its streets are a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, and aromas, reflecting the influences of the various communities that call it home. From traditional Spanish tapas bars to trendy international eateries, the culinary scene is a microcosm of the neighborhood’s cosmopolitan spirit. El Raval is also a cultural hotspot, housing the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) and the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB), both of which contribute to the area’s reputation as a haven for art and creativity. The neighborhood’s energy is palpable, drawing in a diverse crowd that includes students, artists, locals, and curious tourists. El Raval is the place chosen by lots of skateboarders who gather outside MACBA to ride every day. We recommend going to El Raval during the day (not so much during the night) and always looking after your personal belongings if you are walking in El Raval or in La Rambla (which is right next to it).

Best Beaches in Barcelona:
Barcelona has incredible beaches with crystal clear water and surely someone has recommended that you go bathing in La Barceloneta Beach, but since we are 100% local we are going to give you the best recommendations.

If you want to go to the beach for a short while or take a quick bath, we recommend you go to one of the beaches downtown. Please: do not go to La Barceloneta. There you will only find tourists (many of them partying), a lot of dirt and you will have to constantly take care of your belongings. Instead, there are two beaches right next that are much better, more beautiful, and where the locals like to go. They are called Bogatell and Playa de la Mar Bella. They are just next to the Poblenou neighborhood, we recommend you also walk through this beautiful neighborhood and its tree-lined boulevard if you are close.

If you have a bit more time, we recommend you take a train in Sants Estació or rent a car (using for example Ubeeqo app) and go to other beaches that are very close, just 45 minutes or an hour away from Barcelona. All of them are in very beautiful small beach towns that you can visit as well. Our favorite beach towns close to Barcelona are Sitges and San Pol De Mar. In each town, you will have different beaches to pick from.

Best Barcelona Panoramic Views:
If you are a sunset lover like we are, you will love this list! Barcelona has plenty of spectacular views, the mix between sea and mountain is perfect and the sun hidden back the mountain is the best view ever!
Here are our favorite spots to enjoy the sunset:

> Palma Coliving: We don´t mean to brag but Palma Coliving is located right next to Park Güell and we have the best view of the sunset looking from the garden to Tibidabo Hill. The warm colors in the sky feel like a blessing every day when we finish our workday and go to the garden to enjoy ourselves with the rest of the guests.

> Park Güell: One of the most iconic views of the city is from Gaudi’s masterpiece, Park Güell. A must-see for every tourist that visits the city, try to plan a visit when the park first opens, or right before it close, for the most unobstructed views over the city and sea.

>Castell de Montjuic: Set on a hill overlooking this city, the Castell de Montjuic is an old military fortress overlooking the city and sea, and it has one of the most unmissable views of the city. You’ll get to see La Sagrada Familia’s spires and the Gothic Quarter in the distance, along with Barcelona’s port and beachfront. You can take a cable car over the port to return to the city!

> Bunkers del Carmen: One of the most visited spaces in the El Carmel neighborhood of Barcelona is the Bunkers. It is an area that is half in ruins since, in the Civil War, an anti-aircraft battery was located here. However, it is an impressive viewpoint that offers you 360º views of Barcelona and is one of the favorite places for both Barcelonans and tourists.

> Palma Coliving: We don´t mean to brag but Palma Coliving is located right next to Park Güell and we have the best view of the sunset looking from the garden to Tibidabo Hill. The warm colors in the sky feel like a blessing every day when we finish our workday and go to the garden to enjoy ourselves with the rest of the guests.

> Park Güell: One of the most iconic views of the city is from Gaudi’s masterpiece, Park Güell. A must-see for every tourist that visits the city, try to plan a visit when the park first opens, or right before it close, for the most unobstructed views over the city and sea.

>Castell de Montjuic: Set on a hill overlooking this city, the Castell de Montjuic is an old military fortress overlooking the city and sea, and it has one of the most unmissable views of the city. You’ll get to see La Sagrada Familia’s spires and the Gothic Quarter in the distance, along with Barcelona’s port and beachfront. You can take a cable car over the port to return to the city!

> Bunkers del Carmen: One of the most visited spaces in the El Carmel neighborhood of Barcelona is the Bunkers. It is an area that is half in ruins since, in the Civil War, an anti-aircraft battery was located here. However, it is an impressive viewpoint that offers you 360º views of Barcelona and is one of the favorite places for both Barcelonans and tourists.
