Welcome to Catalonia!
Where the scenery will melt your heart!
The famous Park Guell, sits high on a hill top and is definitely a site to see, with it’s beautiful gardens and interesting architect. You can tour the tiny stairwells of the two buildings that sit inside the park and then look out over the city when you get to the top.
If you’re looking for exercise while your traveling, Barcelona is a great place with all the hills and stairwells that sit at various locations throughout the city. After you leave the park, you can walk to the famous La Sagrada Familia Church that is only a short walk away.
Barcelona has breathtaking views and will steal your heart as soon as you make it to the top of any hill! Barcelona also has some very beautiful beaches, so make sure your ready to spend at least one of your days at the beach! This place is definitely for the vacationer!
Catalan cuisine is very delicious, so make sure you stop at one of the restaurants near the water and try the Seafood Paella, if you are a seafood lover, you wont be disappointed! While in Barcelona, make sure you also visit Mercado de La Boqueria, in the Cuidad Vieja district, which is just one of many markets that are in the city! The markets are the best place to get souvenirs to take back home.
My favorite part of Barcelona was the experience of staying in someones home. A lot of people in Barcelona have turned their homes into mini hotels that you can stay in. Staying in someones home gives you an advantage because they love that you’re there to experience their great city and they want you to experience everything that makes them love their city! It was also much better staying near the locals than staying with the tourists and it felt much safer.
The streets can be a little confusing to navigate through at times and it’s easy to get lost, but a lot of the people speak English and even if they don’t, they are willing to help point you in the right direction, as long as you have the address of where you are going on hand!
