Last year I visited Barcelona and I am going to give you too some travel tips and what's more interesting to see, at least from my point of view.
Barri Gothic is one of the most attractive tourist spots of Barcelona and the oldest district of the capital of Catalunya. Barri Gotic is full of shops, restaurants and it covers the area between Rambla and Via Laietana, part of the district of Ciutat Vella , that is the Old Town, together known as the Raval and Barceloneta. Here it can be found fabulous 19th century medieval buildings, even buildings of ancient Roman city of Barcino.
Here I had the opportunity to admire Barcelona Cathedral with her Romanesque gothic style, the Barcelona Wax Museum that it is right on the Rambla and Placa Sant Jaume, the City Hall of Barcelona and the Catalan Provincial of Government.
I recommend Montjuic hill …amazing view….and that descend by cable car to the beach Barcelonetta. You fly over the harbor, and the scenery is lovely. Go and Ciutadella park to admire the multitude of green parrots, and then go to port and give a piece of bread to fish in that area…that’s a pretty cool experience..ohh..and do not miss the sound and light show at the fountains in the Plaza Espana…..
Regarding to the Barceloneta…well…it is a neighborhood in the district Weird Vela in Barcelona, Catalonia, famous for its wide sandy beaches, about Miguel de Cervantes who said in his'' Don Quixote''… Barceloneta beach is the nearest city centre and its port limits Veil and Villa Olympia, the most stretched beach town. The menus offer a wide variety of dishes, from patatas bravas, jamon Serrano and Iberian palette to octopus, crawfish and calamari, and the famous'' chiringuitos' (name became emblematic for the beach bars), you can enjoy ice -cold mojito and cerveza…what means beer. One of the excellent restaurants in the Olympic port is El Cangrejo Loco. This is a fish restaurant, the fish and seafood main courses. Its location by the sea makes it attractive to many people who work in the area, and in the evening the restaurant is full.
Montserrat is a mountain located about 50 km north of Barcelona, not too high 1236 m atop of Sant Jeroni, which is famous for its vertical blocks of limestone and conglomerate, with strange shapes impressive. Name Montserrat means "jagged mountain" and is well suited for hiking, landscape appearance due to sometimes extraordinary panoramas moon and being sprinkled here and there, the chapel where they lived in the past hermits.
Other things that you should see are: Cafe Zurich, Palau de la Virreina, Academia del Arte, Chinese store of umbrellas, Antigua Casa Figueras, Raval neighborhood to go to Sant Pau del Camp, where is a small Romanesque church, very old, in the tenth century, but very well kept, the sculpture of Francisco, Botero - "Cat" on Rambla del Raval, became a symbol of Barcelona.
Another attraction quite captivating ... is the Barcelona Aquarium located in the port, sticking the big mall Mare Magnum actually behind in Port Vell district and the delight of the show's humor were the underwater penguins that had no job than to playJ
Stadium FC Barcelona - is so well designed that has perfect visibility from any point's stairs..it’s very cool this stadium, especially the architectural point of view, because it is done on a large area, which is supported only with the outer pillars, so the impact is great and is kind of a premiere in the constructions industry.
Accommodation…In Barcelona there are a lot of hotels very cool and at good prices, so it won’t be a problem, the hotels are various but be careful …most of the central ones are quite noisy….so if you love peace and quiet choose a hotel in the port area…the view is gorgeous…the prices more affordable, offering great quality services.
Barcelona is a city full of life who offers different architectural styles, famous painters, a history still written, a plenty of things to do and see, beautiful beaches, good food, exciting nightlife ... so worth a visit!
