The magnificent fountain of the park - Barcelona

The magnificent fountain of the park

Parc de la Ciutadella Parc de la Ciutadella Review

Favorite thing: This is me and my friend Bruno in front of the main (beautiful) fountain of the Parc de la Ciutadella, a big and lovely park located near downtown (towards the southeast of town, close to Villa Olimpica) and next to the zoo park. You can stroll, row in the lake or just lie down on the grass, it's a great place to rest and relax when the weather is good!

The Modern Art Museum of Barcelona - Barcelona

The Modern Art Museum of Barcelona

Modern Art Museum on the hill Montjuic Review

Favorite thing: This is currently a Modern Art museum located in an old government palace, in Mont Juic (a hill/mountain located in the west side of the city).

Fondest memory: The building is beautiful as you can see, and the long avenue that leads to it has a couple of "Venetian Towers" on both sides of the entrance, which makes you think you're entering a royal palace... There are electric stairs that climb the mountain so you don't get so tired while going uphill! And there are some beautiful fountains located around the avenue leading to the palace and some more right in front of it, too... Please look at the tip called "The Magic Fountain of Mont Juic" posted in the Off the beaten path section for a more detailed description.

The Rambla in Barcelona - Barcelona

The Rambla in Barcelona

La Rambla Las Ramblas Review

Favorite thing: I'm not putting this in the "Must See Activities" section because, wanting it or not, you WILL see it: The Rambla! You will walk through and/or across this famous pedestrian avenue at some point of your stay in Barcelona, as it starts almost in front of the sea (the Old Port) and it takes you right to the heart of the town: Plaza Catalunya. From here you can reach nearly all of the most important spots in Barcelona very easily without having to take the metro or the bus.

The Rambla is surrounded by souvenir shops, restaurants, banks, a big market, and you can see pretty unusual things and people right on it... There's also a great place for ice cream called DINO in front of the Rambla -- I highly recommend it. And, when buying souvenirs around here, BARGAIN! The owners are usually Arabs and they will drop the price of mostly anything just to make you buy something... so show some interest but not too much, and they will try to make a deal with you. Just be careful and check the quality of the stuff, but you can find rather good things here.
