What To Do

Sagrada Familia

The first day we visited the Sagrada Familia, architect Antoni Gaudi’s most famous work. I definitely recommend purchasing tickets to see the inside of the cathedral, as it will blow your mind. More than 100 years later, construction continues today, and is expected to be completed in 2026.

After seeing the Sagrada we went to the rooftop bar above the Ayre Hotel to enjoy the incredible view & a refreshing, pineapple mojito.

Park Güell

After we saw the Sagrada, we went to Park Güell, another one of Gaudi’s most famous works. Tour the beautiful grounds of the park, & colorful mosaic tiling.

Gothic Quarter

The Gothic Quarter, located in the heart of the city, is one of the most popular neighborhoods, filled with trendy bars, clubs and restaurants. I recommend staying at a Hotel or Airbnb in this neighborhood as it is close to everything.

Las Ramblas

Las Ramblas of Barcelona, also known as La Rambla, is a famous street located in central Barcelona filled with flower vendors and markets. Make sure to get a bite to eat at La Boqueria Market.

Where To Eat

Brunch—

Brunch & Cake is the most adorable café that serves delicious healthy food that will most likely be the most instagrammable brunch you’ve ever had. But I promise you it tastes just as amazing as it looks!

Dinner—

The first night we ate a Japanese restaurant called Ikibana, located in El Born neighborhood, right outside of the Gothic Quarter. The sushi was delicious and their variety of cocktails were so fun.

We wanted to enjoy authentic Barcelona tapas and so the second night we enjoyed creative tapas at Llamber. The food was outstanding and I think my friends and I can all agree tha1t the gnocchi was the best gnocchi EVER. The selection of tapas restaurants can be overwhelming in Barcelona, but I cannot recommend Llamber enough.

Nightlife

CDLC Lounge/Club

Located right on the beach, CDLC is the perfect place to enjoy a couple of drinks and great music. CDLC has incredible vibes all around. At night it becomes a little more clubby. I recommend going for a late lunch, or before dinner to have wine and light food.

Opium Club

Opium Club is where you want to spend your Friday night. My friends and I had one of the most fun nights of our lives. It is located right on the beach, which is perfect for watching the sunrise after a long night of dancing.
