This sweet trio is enjoying the humbling view on the buzzing city of Barcelona – the city of Gaudi, delicious food and sandy beaches. Besides all the touristy must-do's, like honoring the architectural highlights or eating tasty Tapas, there are three things we highly recommend you to do when in the city of Barcelona:
1. BEACH: It might be an obvious choice, but you really cannot leave Barcelona without a taste of one of its best attractions: the many sandy beaches along the coastline. You can lounge on the sand all day or you can get active with one of the beach volleyball games that have become so popular on these Catalan shores. In the evening when you're tired and sun-toasted, you might be lucky enough to catch one of the film festivals they hold at the beach around sunset – an excellent way to end a busy day.
2. PARK: The Ciutadella Park is an oasis in the city centre. It features a beautiful lake, an impressive fountain and lots of grass for you to enjoy a picnic, an afternoon of reading or a simple nap. Locals are fond of this park, not only for relaxing, but also for the abundance of activities it hosts. You can find concerts, jogging groups, dancing groups and even gymnastics throughout the park. You’re guaranteed to find an authentic slice of Catalonian life in this green space.
3. MARKET: Barcelona is a city of markets – every neighbourhood has its very own. Nonetheless, the busy Boquería stands out from the crowd! Marvel at the immense variety of colourful fruits and vegetables, meats, curated cheesed and hams, exotic products, spices and locally caught fish. You’ll find everything you might need to stock your kitchen (or your picnic hamper), plus a sizeable amount of extra delicacies that you don’t necessarily need but should definitely try. It’s a challenge to wander through the Boquería without purchasing a treat or two, but the sizeable free samples will certainly make it an inexpensive lunch.
