✨ Barcelona Weekend Itinerary ✨
🏙 ACTIVITIES: After breakfast, I’d recommend visiting all of Gaudí’s most famous works across the city. Start in Placa de Sant Jaume and head to Palau Güell.
1️⃣Palau Güell is a mansion designed by Gaudí for the industrial tycoon Eusebi Güell and was built between 1886 and 1888. After Palau Güell, head to Casa Battló. To get there, take the L3 on the Metro at Liceu and get off at Passeig de Gràcia.
2️⃣ Casa Batlló is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must see for those who want to discover more about Gaudí’s work and modernism. Every year, more than 1 million people visit Casa Battló! After Casa Battló, continue walking up Passeig de Gràcia and you will then reach Casa Milà.
3️⃣ Casa Milà or otherwise known as La Pedrera, is another of Gaudí’s most famous works. It is well known for its unconventional rough-hewn appearance and was built between 1906 and 1912. After Casa Milà, head to the final stop of the Gaudí tour - La Sagrada Familia. Walk for 4 minutes to Diagonal Metro station on L5 and head to the Sagrada Familia stop. The metro station is right by La Sagrada Familia.
4️⃣ La Sagrada Familia is a basilica that is now a major symbol of Barcelona throughout the world and arguably is Gaudí’s most famous building.
For dinner I’d highly recommend heading to the tapas restaurant Bar Lobo. The restaurant is on Carrer del Pintor Fortuny which is just off Las Ramblas. Bar Lobo describe themselves as serving ‘tapas, light bites and mains’ 😋
Sunday is the best day of the week to head to the beach!
❌ Avoid La Barceloneta - there are many tourist traps, it’s super busy and the restaurants are very expensive.
✅ Instead, head for San Sebastiá, Bogatell, Nova Icária, Sant Miquel or Mar Bella!
