And now, take your beach towel and start discovering the city! We suggest you to take a stroll in El Born district.  Here you must visit the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar, symbol of the Catalan Gotic, the Picasso Museum and the Palau de la Música Catalana

Besides, don’t miss the hand-made market which takes place in a little square near Carrer de l’Allada Vermell in El Born every Saturday . Taking a stroll there we were captured by this beautiful decorated door.

Let’s visit Parc de la Ciutadella and  Arco de Triunfo now. During spring the park is full of people having a picnic, taking a sunbath and playing music. From the park you can reach the Arc in just a few minutes. It was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1888 and it is located at the end of the “Passeig de Sant Joan”.

Now, we suggest you to walk over the Paseo de San Juan and take the metro at the Tatuan Station to the Sagrada Família. The metro line is L2 and the estimated time of your journey is 4 minutes. The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a huge Catholic basilica, which is still under construction, a masterpiece of the architect Antoni Gaudí. Here is a photo of the colorful mosaics.

After visiting the Sagrada Familia, why not walking around the little streets and squares of Gracia district!? It is the smallest district of Barcelona and the biggest cultural and touristic attraction of this district is without a doubt Parc Güell. If you want to admire the beautiful panorama of the city, a visit to Park Güell is the right choice!

Besides that, you can take a seat on the colorful benches designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudì and admire his fabulous mosaics.

And now… you can go shopping on the most famous “passeig” of Barcelona! The Passeig de Gracia starts at the feet of Gracia district and arrives at the most central square, Plaza Catalunya. Walking down the paseo, you can admire the 2 pearls of Gaudì: Casa Milà, with its fabulous rooftop

And the colorful Casa Battlò.

Once you are on Plaza Catalunya, go down to La Rambla and take a juice at the most famous market in Barcelona! It is “El Mercado de San José” (in catalán Mercat de Sant Josep), known as “La Boquería”.

La Rambla is the line that divides the Barrio Gotico and the Barrio Raval. In the first one you can find the Catedral de Barcelona, another symbol of the Catalan Gotic architecture.

And in the Raval district the famous Cat of Botero.

Say #hello to the cat at Rambla del #Raval! #OnlyInBarcelona #Barcelona
