It is no surprise that Barcelona is synonymous with art and architecture, tapas and wine, trendy nightlife and a laidback atmosphere. The city is packed with tapas bars and wine shops where you can eat like a local; museums and heritage buildings are around each corner; while locals are pretty good at organizing an amazing nightlife, full of vibes under a fantastic all year long sunny weather. Here we give you few tips for enjoying the best of the Catalan capital.
Enjoy Gaudi´s Modernist Legacy
What would be Barcelona without the stamp of Antoni Gaudi (https://blog.haro.com/en/gaudi/), the artist who got inspired in nature and the sea, and who created a unique array of works in the city, being the Park Guell, La Pedrera and La Sagrada Familia the most famous ones, though a good number of other buildings and few hidden gems, such as the lamps at Placa Reial, are well spread in the city. Most of his legacy can be found in Barcelona city center.
Go on a foodie stroll
Getting to Barcelona and seeing an enormous food offer in every corner can be overwhelming. As well, due to the fact that the city is quite touristy, one can find plenty of restaurants that are not up to the local standards and look to profit from lost tourists. My advice is that you take a walking food tour (https://barcelonaeatlocal.com/tour/), which is a great introduction to local gastronomy that will give you a unique insight to continue exploring gastronomy on your own, without falling into traps.
Explore the city´s eclectic nightlife
Barcelona is quite famous worldwide for offering a fantastic nightlife. You can hit one of the bars at the chic El Born district to start the night and then head to the beach clubs where music and dancing go till sunrise.
Take a break a the beach
The best of the best always comes at the end. Barcelona beach is considered among the bests in the world, you can either head to La Barceloneta, which is usually quite crowded, but it has a nice option in terms of foods, especially for eating Paella, or head towards the north for a more relaxed and calm vibe.
