Best Things to Do in Barcelona | Top 10 List (2019)
What are the best things to do in beautiful Barcelona? Here is my TOP 10 list of must-see things in the Catalan capital, whether you're visiting on a cruise or otherwise.
#10: Montjuic Castle
You can see Monjuic Castle from the cruise port, as it sits on top of Montjuic hill.
You can book a guided tour of the castle or just walk around the outside and enjoy the gardens.
I actually walked up the stairs of the mountain to the castle, but I recommend taking the Monjuic cable car and take in some views of the city along the way.
#9: Casa Mila & Casa Batllo
I put these 2 architectural wonders together as they are not far apart geographically and both represent some of the best works of Antoni Gaudi.
Gaudi is highly revered in Barcelona and you will find many of his artistic works throughout the city.
Both are Unesco World Heritage Sites and incorporate the art nouveau style.
#8: Cuitadella Park
This park is the most vibrant and perhaps most important in Barcelona. Originally a military fortification, Park Cuitadella today offers something for everyone. There is the zoo, an incredible expansive fountain (based somewhat on the Trevi fountain in Rome), a museum of natural science, and even the opportunity for boat rentals on the lake. And with so much greenery there is plenty of space for a lovely picnic.
#7: Camp Nou
Even if you’re not into football (or soccer) Camp Nou is a fantastic place to visit. With a seating capacity at almost 100,000, this is the largest football stadium in Europe and is the home stadium of FC Barcelona.
When no games are taking place visitors can tour the stadium, go behind the scenes, walk along the field, and tour the Barca Museum. For football fans this is a must-see.
#6: The Magic Fountain of Montjuic
I absolutely loved seeing the Magic Fountain show. The fountain is situated right below the national art museum and near Placa de Espana. An easy metro stop at Placa de Espana will take you a short walk from the fountain.
Performance times vary by times of year and take place at 8 or 9pm and last about an hour.
#5: La Boqueria
Officially named Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria or La Boqueria for short, this marketplace is one of the city’s original landmarks. First mention of La Boqueria goes back to 1217.
Today the market has a metal enclosure and sells a variety of meats, fruits and vegetables, and other culinary delights. One of the best smoothies I ever had was at La Boqueria.
Easy to find, La Boqueria is right off Las Ramblas and if you’re taking the metro you can stop at Liceu on Green line.
#4: Gothic Quarter
You can spend an entire day just visiting the Gothic Quarter as it involves quite a bit of real estate and tons of history, including Roman ruins. You can still see some of the original Roman walls as part of the Barcelona Cathedral.
Walking the narrow, winding streets through the oldest part of the city you will find fascinating sites like the Barcelona Cathedral, Placa Reial, and shops on every corner.
The Gothic Quarter of Barcelona is right off the east side of Las Ramblas.
#3: Las Ramblas
Speaking of Las Ramblas, this iconic street is almost a right of passage for any 1st time visitor to Barcelona. This is the center most street that cuts through the heart of the city and always provides a bustling atmosphere for shopping, eating, and watching performers entertain the tourists.
Las Ramblas begins at Placa de Catalunya and ends at the Christopher Columbus Memorial about 1.2 Kilometers to the south.
#2: Park Guell
Considered the most colorful place in Barcelona and a masterpiece of Antoni Gaudi, Park Guell is another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The park is full of imaginative design and intriguing spaces, and you can often hear performers playing music. Some of the park is free, but if you want to sit on the serpentine bench and get a picture with the lucky lizard you will have to pay to get in.
#1: Sagrada Familia
Sagrada Familia is an immense, unfinished basilica that dominates the landscape and is a marvel of architecture. It’s also quite controversial. Construction on the church began well over 100 years ago in 1882 under architect Francisco de Paula del Villar who resigned a year later, and none other then Antoni Gaudi took over the project.
Before his death in 1926 Gaudi once stated that his client was in no hurry.

25 Things to do in Barcelona, Spain | Top Attractions Travel Guide Video Transcript:
This week we are exploring another Spanish city. We are in Barcelona and this video is going to highlight 25 things to do here.
It is kind of hard to believe our time in Barcelona has expired. So final thoughts.
Well, it was a really fun city to visit. Great architecture, really nice beaches. It is very lively especially at night. The only downfall is that we were here in the middle of summer so it was super hot and super crowded and sometimes that made it a little bit difficult to enjoy. Especially at midday or in the mid-afternoon. So keep that in mind. Maybe consider visiting in the springtime, fall, winter.
Well, so what did you think of the city?
It is definitely a fun city. We had a lot of fun going to the beaches. One thing that is really different about this city compared to some other European cities though is that it is really spread out. In order for us to visit all of these different attractions we had to chunk them together into groups to visit them day by day. Overall, it was a decent city. It didn't quite click with me the same way that Madrid did. But that is just personal preference I suppose.
And that is a wrap for Barcelona! Our 5 days in the city flew by, and while this guide didn't cover everything, we hope we were able to give you a feel of what this fun seaside city has to offer. As always, if you have any suggestions of things to do around town, feel free to add them in the comments below. And if you want to catch our latest travel videos, don't forget to hit subscribe!
