10 Fun Things to Do in Barcelona

Barcelona is among the most popular choices in the world, when it comes to holiday destinations. This is because there are so many great things to do there – like these ten.

  1. Taking a stroll
Barcelona offers great weather for wandering and attractions unique to the city. Montjuic Castle, Parc de Joan Miro and Parc de la Ciutadella are among the stunning parks and buildings that you can enjoy at any time of the year.

  1. Take in a concert
While Barcelona is home to many concert venues, perhaps the best is Gran Teatre del Liceu. Fromthe luxurious red carpeting and gold leaf, to performances of Beethoven, Wagner and the annual Christmas concert, this is a pleasure to visit.

  1. Take the Picasso tour
Picasso spent his youth in Barcelona and you can grab the chance to visit haunts like the site of his former home on C/Merce, hit Els 4 Gats, where he spent time with the likes of Salvador Dali and finish at the Museu Picasso.

  1. Attend a Barcelona match
Barcelona is a city passionate about football and for anyone with an interest in sport, avisit to Camp Nou will be essential. Obviously this is best outside of summer, so you can take in a La Liga fixture.

  1. Tibidabo
This enormous mountain overlooks the city and yet many visitors neglect it. During the summer months it will provide superb views of the entire city.

  1. Las Ramblas
This area of the city is very tourist-heavy, but still well worth a visit – especially off-season. Then you will best be able to enjoy the shops, street performances and colour of this vibrant locale.

  1. Steel Donkey Ride
This means a bicycle, but the rides take in less touristy spots – such as El Borne’s back streets, the Gracia village district and the Poblenou ruins. This is perfect for anyone who wants a more individual experience of Barcelona.

  1. Skateboarding
Perhaps surprisingly, Barcelona is a European skateboarding centre, and a visit to the Plaza del Angels will be the ideal activity for any teenagers you have with you.

  1. Visit the Casino Barcelona
The city has several casinos, but the Casino Barcelona is the best. Poker is the popular game here, with the numerous tournaments having built the reputation of this casino. If you don’t fancy the hassle of going to actual casino try some online mobilepokies with sites such as mobilecasinoaustralia in the comfort of your own room. However you will also find slots and other table games in the actual casino.

  1. Try the cuisine
One of the best restaurants for sampling local Basque cuisine like Pinxtos is Euskal Etxea, making this a great stop for those who want the authentic culinary experience.

There is so much to sample in Barcelona, if you research and explore a little.
