Things to Do When Visiting The Beautiful City of Barcelona

Have you been to this beautiful city of Barcelona? I am glad, I did and I truly love this amazing capital of Catalonia. It is also the largest city of this region and the second largest in Spain. It is a historic city  dating back being at least 2,000 years when it gained prominence as a Roman city.  It hosted the 1992 Olympic Games  which brought a massive upturn in its tourism industry.

Barcelona has a lot of interesting sights to see. Don’t miss visiting the La Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, Park Guell, Casa Batlo, the Gothic church of Santa Maria del Pi, the Arch of Triumph, the Columbus Monument, the Cathedral of St. Eulalia and many more.

The famous La Sagrada Familia considered the most famous building in the entire city. Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In order to experience more of its sights, I suggest you to do the vesping. Why vesping? You can rent a vespa and while riding it, you can save time and see more sights. You can also have a vesping travel assistant if you want too. With this means of transportation, you can explore the city at your own plan and it is easy to get around the city as well.

Among the famous one is the Spanish Pata negra ham which you can buy in Jamonarium.

Stroll the Famous Streets in Ciutat Vella (Old City)

During my visit in Barcelona in 2012, our tour guide once mentioned that Les Rambles (Catalan) or La Rambla is one of the most beautiful and liveliest street not only in Spain but maybe around the world. The La Plaça de Catalunya is also a great area if you want to see fountains and statues and the shops that surround it. It is the favourite meeting place of both locals and tourists.
