Top 5 things to do in Barcelona

Trending in the past 7 days

Sagrada Familia
1. Sagrada Familia
The Sagrada Familia is the magnum opus of the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The cathedral was the finale to his incredible Modernist career, and it has been under continuous construction since 1882. Over time, the so-called 'architect of God' dropped all his other work so that he could focus exclusively on this project, which he did until his untimely death in 1926. The Sagrada Familia is due to be finished in 2026, on the 100th anniversary of Gaudí's death. By that time, the construction of the Sagrada Familia will have taken 144 years.
Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau
2. Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau
Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau is the masterpiece of architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, an avant-garde of the Catalan Modernisme movement. In the early 1900s, he envisioned a hospital that would not just heal the bodies of patients, but also their spirits. The resulting Sant Pau Hospital is an Art Nouveau complex boasting 16 pavilions, tranquil gardens, mosaic art, domed ceilings, playful pastel walls, and polychromatic tiles. The building feels less like a hospital and more like a surreal place of healing. Underground tunnels that connect the individual buildings are also open to visitors.
Park Güell
3. Park Güell
Park Güell is Gaudí's fantasy-fuelled park in Carmel Hill, Barcelona. Walk amongst fantastic creations built in Gaudí's special brand of Catalan Modernism and enjoy panoramic views of Barcelona. Don't miss out on this quintessential Barcelona experience.
Casa Batlló
4. Casa Batlló
Gaudí's masterpiece, Casa Batlló located in the heart of Barcelona, was built in 1877. In 1904, the wealthy Batlló family asked Gaudí to build another in its place. Instead, he decided to renovate the building and did so in his own inimitable style. With a wavy animalistic facade, brilliant colors, and thought-provoking whimsical features everywhere (check out the roof terrace), this is a Gaudí wonder.
Camp Nou
5. Camp Nou
Camp Nou ('New Field' in Catalan) is a football stadium in Barcelona and the home ground of FC Barcelona. The second-largest football stadium in the world, it has a capacity for nearly 100,000 fans. To see a game there is to experience football at its purest, while an excursion to the museum is an experience in itself. Immersive and impressive, the museum features giant touch screens, sound installations (including match-day sounds), historical stats, and a trophy cabinet worthy of King Midas!

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a luxurious Catalan Art Nouveau masterpiece. Built between 1905 and 1908, the building unites the decorative arts of sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and ironwork.

The Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, a symbolic work of the Modern movement, was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich as Germany's national pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition. After the closing of the Exhibition, the Pavilion was dismantled in 1930. Over time, it became a key reference both in the trajectory of Mies van der Rohe and for the architecture of the 20th century as a whole.

'I want my museum to be a single block, a labyrinth, a great surrealist object. It will be a totally theatrical museum. The people who come to see it will leave with the sensation of having had a theatrical dream.' Dalí got his wish.

Public Transport

Public transport such as the metro, tram and FGC (regional trains) are the quickest and most convenient way of getting around Barcelona. Different ticket types and travel cards can be bought at subway stations. Don't forget to explore by foot as well - Barcelona is full of treasures and tapas tucked away down narrow sidestreets.

Weather

Barcelona is known for its sunny Mediterranean weather, with warm summers and mild winters. The summer months of July and August reach up to 30°C/86°F, while in the winter months it gets down to 10°C/50°F. With only 90 days of rain a year, odds are your trip to Barcelona is going to be drenched in sunshine.

Beaches

Fine golden sand beaches lapped at by shallow blue waters - the coast up and down from Barcelona is picturesque. They're beloved of residents and tourists alike; it's unique to have such great beaches so close to such a great city. Barcelona’s coastline stretches for 5 km and offers nine magnificent beaches.

What to do in Barcelona for 3 days

Sagrada Familia

Visit the Sagrada Familia and be amazed by one of the world's most inspiring buildings. Gaudí himself was so dedicated to this project that he lived onsite for 16 years and is buried in the crypt below. The spiral staircases, seven chapels, stained glass windows and extensive details all speak to the world-renowned Catalan architect's dedication to this project. It's scheduled to be completed in 2026 - on the 100th anniversary of his death.

Park Güell

This is what happens when you let brilliantly idiosyncratic architect Antoni Gaudí design an outdoor space. Gingerbread houses, a magic lizard, and a serpent bench that winds around the perimeter, are just some of Park Güell's architecural flourishes. But this icon of Barcelona is also a perfectly kept immense garden; Gaudí's whimsical touches somehow contribute to - rather than detract from - the natural beauty.

Parc de la Ciutadella

The Parc de la Ciutadella is Barcelona's 'green lung'. For a long time after its inception, this 17 hectare green space was the city's only park. The delightful Barcelona zoo, the epic fountain, and the charming mammoth sculpture are among the visitor highlights. Although to be fair, just coming and having a picnic in the sun or shade can also be a highlights of a visit to this vibrant city park.

Getting out of the city to Montserrat

Visit one of Catalonia’s most magnificent places. The mountain sanctuary of Montserrat is definitely worth the trip. Montserrat is a Benedictine monastery, a natural park, a spiritual shrine, and a Catalan cultural cornerstone, all in one. A visit here offers a balance of cultural and natural diversions. Soak up magnificent views from the jagged rock formations, and visit a monastery and a museum.
