Barceloneta is known for its sandy beach (notable for its appearance in Don Quixote, book 2) and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk. Its character comes in part from the fact that it was the old fisherman’s area.

 

 

 

Visit “El Arc de Triomf” and entrance to “El Parc de la Ciutadella” (group B)

This is a wonderful, relaxing walk. You go from the Arc de Triomf, built in 1888, down a wide, tree-linedpedestrian street, where you arrive at the Park de la Ciutadella. The park has a boating lake, a mammoth, and here you can find the city zoo. If it's nice weather, which it normally is, then try checking out this side of town.

 

 

 

 

Visit “El Park Güell” (group B)

 

A garden complex with architectural elements situated on a hill, designed by Antoni Gaudí. A very interesting visit where you can interact with the art.

 

 

 

 

Visit “Gracia” neighbourhood (group B)

This is one of Barcelona's neighbourhoods. It used to be a separate town, but nowadays it is part of the city. Gracia is famous for being chic, cool and trendy. You will stumble upon many squares and narrow streets, enjoy the cosmopolitan and young atmosphere and there aren't t too many tourists.

 

 

 

 

Visit “La Sagrada Familia” from outside (group B)

Barcelona's most famous landmark may charge admission, but viewing it from the outside is free. Personally, I don't think going inside is worth it - the museum isn't especially interesting (unless you have a big interest in architecture) and the climb to the top gives you a less-than-spectacular view of the city.

Of course, paying the entrance fee does at least help guarantee that they finish the building (over 120 years and counting, so far), but if you're on a very tight budget, you can still appreciate 90% of the building from across the road.

 

 

Visit “la Rambla”, "Boqueria" Market and “Plaça Reial” (group B)

Just off the Rambla, this is one of the most colourful and lively places in Barcelona, this market sums up the Spanish or Catalan community spirit. People come to shop, to have something to eat, or just to chat. Walk down the Ramblas and take in the amazing human statues and you arrive at Plaça Reial. Some say this is the touristic heart of the city you will find people from all around the world.
