What To Do in Barcelona
#1 Tour La Sagrada Familia
This is a bucket list experience in Spain — it is an awe-inspiring creation. It is considered Gaudí’s most recognized work, he began construction in 1882 and continued until his death in 1926. The church is still under construction and is targeted to be completed in 2026. You will need to purchase tickets ahead of time or book a tour — it is very popular!
#2 Visit Park Güell
This 42-acre park, created by Antoni Gaudi, is filled with vibrant mosaics, twisting stone, and lush vegetation — it’s one of the most Instagrammable spots in Barcelona. You can book a tour to learn more about the history of the park or wander through and enjoy it on your own. Even if you only have two days in Barcelona, don’t miss this spot.

Located in the heart of the city center, it is the oldest part of Barcelona and the liveliest! The narrow streets are filled with beautiful architecture, cafes, shops, and restaurants.

Right in the middle of Las Ramblas is a foodie paradise — Mercado de la Boqueria (The Boqueria Market). It is filled with Spanish specialties, fresh fruit, juices, and more.

How to Get Around Barcelona
Getting around Barcelona is quick and easy, thanks to their extensive public transportation system. If you’re coming from the airport to the city center you have multiple options via Aerobus, metro, or taxi. On both of our trips, we have opted for the metro. A taxi to the city center is about €40, while the Aerobus is €5.90, and the metro is €4.60.
If you plan to see many of the sights and use public transit, I suggest you purchase a Barcelona Card. The card can be purchased for 3 or 4 days and it also includes free public transit use.
