1. Sagrada Familia

The icon of Barcelona, Gaudí’s dream, a gem of art and architecture throughout more than a century…

It should be forbidden to visit the city without making a stop at the Sagrada Familia, as well as it should be forbidden to live here and not go back every now and then to remember one of the reasons that make this city extraordinary.

2. Flamenco Show at Palau Dalmases

This is truly an experience that should be on top of your list. Wander around the streets of old but cozy El Born district until you reach Palau Dalmases, and enjoy a fascinating Flamenco show in this 17th century baroque building.

3. Bike Tour

Did you know almost half of the population in Catalonia uses bikes? Barcelona is literally a heaven to bike around in, with lots of bike lanes which make it super easy for bikers to move around. It’s often faster than the metro or the bus! Plus, these public transports and sometimes even taxis can’t get to some places inside the old city center.

So why not try it for yourself and take a bike tour to explore the city? Click here if you want to experience what it’s like to move around with the sun kissing your skin, the air brushing your hair and the beautiful architecture framing the picture while you learn about the city.

 

4. La Pedrera

Also known as Casa Milà, La Pedrera is yet another icon of the city that adds to the beauty of Passeig de Gracia. A World Heritage Site, its magic, its richness and mystery will leave you speechless so make sure you add it to your list and get your tickets here.

 

5. Casa Batlló

Further down on Passeig de Gracia, towards Plaza Cataluña, Casa Batlló is a rainbow of colors and shapes. Another World Heritage Site, a gift from Gaudí to his beloved Barcelona, it definitely stands out and is the subject of countless beautiful postcards of the city. Book your tickets in advance by clicking here and see it for yourself.

 

6. Walking Tour around Gótico

Gótico is packed with history and beautiful pieces of history in every corner. I strongly suggest you don’t skip this one, and walk around the area in a guided tour to learn some of its secrets. The rest you can only find them out for yourself when you get lost in these little streets…

7. Sightseeing Bus

If you don’t have a lot of time or you don’t like walking around, this might be the best option for you. Hop on the official sightseeing tour of Barcelona and visit all of the city’s main attractions, which are spread in three different routes that the buses cover, while an audio guide gives you all the highlights.

You can buy your tickets in advance by clicking here.

 

8. Santa Maria del Mar Church’s Rooftop

Barcelona’s “Cathedral of the sea”, as it’s also known, hides a lot of secrets. One of them are the beautiful views that you can admire from its rooftop. Since the entrance to Santa María del Mar is normally free, most people cross this church out of their list after visiting the main nave. However, if you don’t follow the crowds and want to enjoy yet another point of view of Barcelona, don’t think it twice and get your tickets here.

 

9. Panoramic Helicopter Tours

This one might be one of those many of us Barcelonese need to do once in our lives. The views, the heights, the skyline, the city and ourselves from a different perspective. A memory of a lifetime.

If your budget allows it, or if you know the city all too well except from the sky, click here and book a helicopter tour that you will never forget.

 

10. Cava Tour at the Freixenet Winery

Why? Because if you’re not interested in becoming a cava/wine expert, you know you like to drink wine. Because cava is THE wine of Barcelona. And because when you think of cava you probably think of Freixenet, the (or one of the) most popular and traditional cava makers.
