  • I am sorry but I was not convinced at all. I can't find a no appeal to Spanish and I would not recommend it, I understand that for foreigners might be curious and striking because it gives the impression of being very directed to them. It is true that the day I went was very busy and a bit 'off' but it seems too artificial in one way or another. The restaurants are expensive and specifically in that was over omitted the actual price with VAT in the letter. I think that Yes is first a little system would win much. The positive: the staff is very good.

  • I could suggest to everybody to visit this small village. It is the story of Spain. Old houses, roads... You can live the history in there. Try greek frape from La casa del chocolate.  more »

  • Fun to walk, but the kids need to be bigger than mine. Oldest was 7 and he still did not have the patience to pay attention and understand the difference between the architectural styles. If your don't have the time to visit other parts of Spain, then it's worth to come here.
  • One street leads to another from one region to the next, making you feel almost at home. You need to see it also at night to fully appreciate its beauty. It still has that sense of an unfinished piece of art, otherwise it would have been perfect.
  • Not really a museum. Lovely reproduction of an old Catalan village, but with modern shops and restaurants. It has a very nice contemporary art museum and a sculpture garden, with good pieces (Dali, Picasso). It is very large with beautiful views of Barcelona.
  • Great way to see a variety of architectural styles. Didn't do the AV tour but just enjoyed wandering around the streets and shipping in the various arts and crafts stores, getting a drink and just being there. Discount entry vouchers are widely available throughout the city. The central square was set up as a music venue (separate ticket) with temporary stage and pa. I can't think of a better place to see a band.
  • Cost 15 euros to go in. There was an Mexican fiesta going on in the square. With street food, and Mexican clothes to buy. Enjoyed it allot. Great singing, dancing. Great atmosphere, but wouldn't have bothered going in otherwise.

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.
