Fast and beautiful. TOP 5 one-day itineraries in Barcelona
Barcelona is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and the second largest city of Spain with a population of 1.6 million people.
We offer you five of the best one-day itineraries in the city.
1. Several main city avenues diverge from Plaça Catalunya. If you are facing El Corte Inglés, Paseo de Gracia begins to the left of it. Here are the two most famous buildings of the Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí – Casa Batlló Casa Milà. They are no less intricate on the inside than on the outside. However, it makes sense to go there if you have planned a longer trip to Barcelona. Passionate fans of Gaudí can save time by pre-purchasing an express line ticket online.
2. On Paseo de Gracia, you can take a taxi or take the metro and get to the Sagrada Familia. The grandiose temple, on the construction of which Gaudí spent the last 40 years of his life, has not yet been completed due to lack of funds. The authorities regularly postpone the date of completion of works. Now you can climb two of the four towers of the Sagrada Familia. Tickets must be purchased as early as possible on the official website due to huge queues.
3. After visiting the Sagrada Familia, you should go to Barceloneta beach. In the warm season, you can swim here or just sit in the sun with a glass of sangria – a Spanish refreshing drink based on wine with the addition of spices and fruits.
4. After visiting Barceloneta, you should get to the nearby famous boulevard Rambla (Las Ramblas) & nbsp; with numerous shops and souvenirs, street artists and musicians. Here you should definitely visit Boqueria market (Mercat de la Boqueria). Its area is 2583 sq. m. Real delicacies and the freshest products in the city are sold here – fish, vegetables, fruits, berries, etc. Many people come to Boqueria for lunch.
5. The Rambla will lead you to Plaza Catalunya. On the right hand side of El Corte Inglés if you walk along the Puerta del Angel shopping street, you can get to the Gothic Quarter. On the way, you should stop at the Cathedral of Barcelona, then go to Montjuic and watch the evening show.
