Barcelona is one of the most interesting cities in the world, don’t you agree? There is so much to see and do, it can be hard to know exactly where to start. But what are the top places to visit in Barcelona?
Before you consider going sightseeing, you will want to make sure you are staying somewhere of good quality – these serviced apartments are a great choice if you are visiting the city. Once you’re all checked in and settled, here are a selection of the best places to visit whilst a tourist in the city.
Basilica of the Sagrada Familia
Perhaps one of the more famous sights in Barcelona, the Basilica is a monumental church devoted to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. It was consecrated in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI as a minor basilica and it is built only from donations.
If you want breathtaking sights, then this is one place you simply have to visit. It is absolutely stunning on the outside – if a little OTT for some! The architecture is incredible and it is definitely something you want to check out.
The Font Magica
The Magic Fountain is extremely impressive and definitely worth a visit in the evenings when they do a water and light show. It has plenty of outstanding reviews – people suggest visiting mostly in the evening just to check out the show, especially as the show is free too! It is absolutely beautiful but it is recommended that you check times and get there early to ensure you get a good place to view the show.
Mercat de la Boqueria
Whilst you may want to check out the sights, it is also worth checking out the local popular food market. Spain is amazing for food and you will want to check out the market as it sells some of the freshest fruit, vegetables and seafood in the city. There are plenty of different merchants to check out, plenty of different foods to try and plenty of different places to eat. If you are a foodie person, this is definitely a must see.
Parc de Montjuic
If you love visiting museums whilst on holiday, this may be the place for you. There’s a museum there called the Joan Miro museum and plenty of space to walk around and take in the scenic views. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle from the main part of the city, definitely head to Parc de Montjuic.
There are plenty of other fantastic sights to see and places to visit in Barcelona but these are just my top five places that you should check out if you ever visit the city. Do you have any places to suggest?
