Top 50+ places to see in Barcelona

One simply doesn’t know where to begin in Barcelona – there’s just so much to do!

Food lovers will salivate just imagining the variety of foods available here. With a total of 20 Michelin stars, this city will not disappoint.

The Barcelona is tremendously rich in culture with stunning buildings, monuments, and events that give you a glimpse into the city’s diversity.

Begin your adventure at the Sagrada Familia – Antoni Gaudi’s masterpiece church – the city’s most popular attraction and the icon of Barcelona. While you can catch a pretty great glimpse of the iconic structure from a distance, it is still mouth-dropping up close.

Another one of Gaudi’s highlighted creations is the La Pedrara, an interesting looking apartment complex visited by people from all around the world to admire its structure and interior.

Next, visit Barcelona’s most sought-after food market La Boqueria, which receives over 45,000 visitors on the daily.

Enjoy an artful display and get a taste of the region’s finest cheese, seafood, charcuterie, and produce.

You can shop at Barri Gòtic and believe us when we say there is no place on earth equivalent to Barri Gòtic’s intensity and breadth of Gothic architecture. Here you’ll find handmade, affordable souvenirs along with antiques and just about every other item on your mind.
