  • Open air museum, suppose to represent a neighborhood of old barcelona in terms of set up and architecture. It was really interesting to me that they were open until 4am and they sold night time tickets for half the price, so that's what we got. We happened to arrive at the exact same time as 2 tour buses filled with elderly women. We could've had the whole park to ourselves but instead we spent the time trying to avoid the directions they went. While it was a cool experience to see it at night, it could've been better lit in my opinion. It's hard to know what I was looking at and appreciate architecture in the dark. All the shops were closed and that would've probably been a worthwhile part of the experience
  • Good place to be if you are a fan of architecture and want to learn about architectural styles in different regions of Spain. Apart from small buildings to showcase the architecture, there are shops to buy souvenirs, have coffee, eat and learn about making glass and wine. Takes around a couple of hours to cover the entire area. Very nicely made but again, you will like it only if you are into architecture.
  • A stunning representation of architectural styles throughout Spain. PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE WINE SELLER...the tastings are not free. It is a con!! Just go & source some local wines in a market or store, they are much cheaper & of the same quality. It is a very tourist driven feature with some nice shops & very decent restaurants. The shops are not at all cheap, much the contrary.
  • Nice place to walk around in. Nice views. Most of the shops are very tourists oriented so we didn't find something interesting. We got in free for a Flamenco show. I'm not sure its worth more than a couple of euros to get in
  • Was there for 2 occasions; brunch in the park festival, and la terrazza bar. Both amazing use of the local space. Colonial Spain in its most elegant presentation.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
