Lives in London, United Kingdom
Since Feb. 2008
25-34 year old female
I’m a Spanish girl living in London. Barcelona is my dream city, the place where to live in a near future. Until that time comes, I'm enjoying the opportunity London gives me to travel around the World. To me, every trip supposes an opportunity to discover a new culture, new people and a different way of living. As part of the HolaFoodie team, local cuisine is always an important part of my adventures. Don't forget to check holafoodie.com if you love food!

Barcelona may mean culture, good food, sun and seaside, but it also means football—and Barcelona Football Club is an important piece of the city's history. Whether or not F.C. Barcelona is ´your team´, if you're a fan of football, you're sure to enjoy a visit here. The museum has all the team's trophies on display, and of course is housed in the biggest stadium in Europe!
Originally built to last only six months, this temporary exhibition of Spanish architecture has become one of the most visited tourist attractions in Barcelona. Strolling around this cultural village, you can explore traditionally made buildings from all over Spain. It's definitely the best way of visiting the whole country in just one day!
Offering numerous concerts, exhibitions and workshops for a very cheap entrance fee, CaixaForum is a world of opportunity. The building itself (an old textile factory) is a sight to see - and whenever you choose to visit, there is sure to be something going on. I would especially recommend it to families, as the kids’ area is an adventure in itself!
Located in the trendy quarter of El Born, the Picasso Museum is my favourite cultural spot in the city. Occupying five 18th-century Catalonian palaces, it offers a rare opportunity to explore Picasso's early and lesser-known works, including those from his childhood.
A jewel in the heart of the city, this impressive Gaudi-designed building is one of the most visited in Barcelona. It’s particularly well known for its curves - you won't find a 90-degrees angle anywhere in the whole building! This creative interior, plus stunning views from the roof, make La Pedrera a definite must-see!
If you are a fan of architecture, this is the place for you. Although other Barcelona attractions are close to this minimalist building in design, Pabellon Mies van der Rohe is normally an oasis of calm and has a particularly Zen environment that you can't help but fall in love with. It's a nice pause on your cultural route.
Hidden in CosmoCaixa Barcelona's interior is 1000 m2 of reproduced Brazilian rain forest, offering visitors a unique opportunity to experience life in this unusual climate - without the long-haul flight!
One of Gaudi’s lesser-known buildings, Torre Bellesguard is a must-see for fans of the architect. Forget the classical Gaudi buildings - this place is more like a small castle, and a rare living example of his versatility.
Housed in a beautiful modern building, the Modern Art Museum features both an impressive permanent collection, and also an interesting temporary exhibitions program. If you're not passionate about modern art, I still recommend walking past, as the light-filled building itself is a sight not to miss.
If you're looking for a place where there is always something going on, the CCCB has you covered. Exhibitions, screenings, workshops, courses - every day is different at this Centre. However, CCCB is not only a museum - this is also a great place to meet local people, making it a must-visit for those hoping to experience a real slice of local culture.
