Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe. There are plenty of things to do in Barcelona all year round but my favorite time to visit is between April and May. This way you can avoid most of the crowds and still enjoy that warm Barcelona weather.
Things to do in Barcelona
The Barcelona Beach is a hot spot for locals and tourists all year round. The water is perfect for swimming and when you’ve worked up an appetite, there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from on the boardwalk.
If you are visiting Barcelona for the first time the Barcelona Card is a good deal. The card gives you discounts on popular attractions and free admission to a few of the museums in the city.
If you are just arriving to Barcelona I would suggest to make the Barcelona Cathedral your first stop. Climb to the top of the Cathedral and have an incredible view of the area.
Also known as the old city of Barcelona, Barri Gotic is a great place to wander around and see some old architecture.
The Gaudi Fountain can be found in Parc de la Ciutadella. Gaudi designed this magnificent fountain as a tribute to the god of Neptune.
Picasso is one of my favorite artists and the Picasso Museum in Barcelona preserves and displays more than 3,000 pieces of his art.
