Barcelona – Long vacation

Barcelona – Long vacation

Hi there,
I am a writer and I will stay in Barcelona for a while. I would like to know which landmarks would take me almost all day to visit? I want to allocate a day for each important area or landmark. Also, I need a hotel that offers discounts if I stay longer! Thanks! Reply to this

I would not know where to start a plan like that! Maybe you can take a city tour after you get there and decide afterwards! How many days will you be staying? The La Rambla Boulevard is pretty well-known. La Sagrada Familia is one of Gaudi’s masterpieces. Also, if you are interested of Picasso’s experience in Barcelona, there are tours that will take you. One more thing, try their seafood!

I assume you are doing some research in Barcelona. That’s lovely! You can go to <snip> to see what offers they have! They usually have discounts but I am not sure for how long! Barcelona means to me: flamenco! Go to El Tablao de Carmen and Los Tarantos to watch and learn! Do not be afraid to dance! You will feel much better!

Hi, Montjuic is easy to get to from central Barcelona and offers museums (the Miro museum is a must if you like modern art), a castle and parks. You can spend a day there easily.

You can also spend a day at the beach, walk, cycle, run, swim, have a coffee or just watch people.

The Barrio Gotico is the old city with many lanes to check out, visit the Cathedral and the Historical Museum of Barcelona, it is very interesting. Lots of little restaurants, cafes, shops.

A day trip to Montserrat is worth the effort. There are many walking trails on the mountain, with fantastic views. The monastery itself is also interesting, even if you are not a catholic.

I don't think one can be bored in Barcelona, there are always lot's of things going on.

Barcelona is a great city

As suggest by Inga, the Miro foundation is a most as Mont Juic in general. Three years ago after watching the tour the france start in Barcelona I decided to climb up the Mont on bike... not the best idea but it would take you a day to visit the foundation and castle etc...

Park Guell is also a most. There is various museum and great artist. You could spend a day there.

Check the tourist board, they have cheap football ticket to great games.

So much to see over there.

Hi Shawn,

I suggest that you reserve a day when you visit to La Rambla and Poble Espanyol Village. It would take you a whole day to stroll that wonderful street and be amazed by the unique architectural designs of the buildings in it. When I stayed there, it really took me a long time so that I can visit most of the tourist attraction of Barcelona. Thanks to <snip> that I had a hotel accommodation that really suits my budget.
