Although Barcelona is not the capital of Spain, it is probably the most popular city and with good reason. There is something for everyone - shops, beaches, sights to see, hilltops. There's a huge collection of architecture and art to see here, with the city displaying some of Gaudis most famous work. Everything is within walking distance, so the city is easy to get around & you have the best of both worlds with a main city and a beach!

    Situated in Placa Reial (a lovely square full of restaurants and bars). This square is full of locals and tourists, with a great atmosphere. We ate here on our last night in Barcelona. The food was great quality and was relatively cheap. We sat outside, which added to the atmosphere from the square

    Tips
    • Chicken croquetters for starter
    • The Creme brule is not solid (as it would be in England, UK), it is runny with a 'sloppy' texture, still tasted delicious
    • entertainers do come around the square, so sit outside if you wish to see this.

    We came here on our last night and was disappointed we couldn't come again! the place is excellent, it's got a lovely vintage style feel to the bar with all the staff in bow ties. We asked for a menu for the cocktails, which the waiter replied 'I am the menu' - Lovely traditional cocktail bar, just off las ramblas, full of locals and tourists. great atmosphere!! usual cocktails, (i.e. margaritas, old fashioned, mojitos etc) are available but can make cocktails of their own (to your taste)

    La padera is situated on Passeig de Gracia, close to las ramblas. It is a must see of barcelona, and one of Gaudis most famous buildings/art. It is now used as apartments, but you can still go inside and up to the top to see the much loved/photographed chimneys.

    MUST SEE of barcelona - most famous site!! One of Gaudis pieces of art, with amazing detail and design. His plans/drawings were burned and this building was completed in his 'style' by another architecture/artist. very interesting place. towers represent the apostles. not finished, so still has cranes and workmen on the cathedral, will be completed in 2026. must book tickets online to gain entry (tickets on 'the door' sell out VERY quickly).
