Content: There’s a reason La Sagrada Familia is at the top of every Barcelona to-do list, and there’s a reason we recommend a visit. This enormous time span is a testament to the detail and thought Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí put into every door, column, and spire, and the result is a one-of-a-kind structure that’s unlike any you’ve ever seen.

La Rambla

Content: A walk down the Rambla is a must for first-timers; it is the most famous street in Barcelona but it gets crowded and busy, so make this your first stop in the morning. It is also a popular street for pickpockets in Barcelona, so watch your belongings at any time of day.

Content: This place should definitely be on your itinerary. Bar Marsella is the oldest bar in Barcelona, opened in 1820 in the El Raval district. The Absinthe ritual is to place 1 lump of sugar on the fork resting on the rim of the glass, and to trickle a stream of water over the sugar until it all dissolves into the liqueur.

Content: Although el Raval may be considered the toughest barrio of Barcelona, due to its history of crime-related problems, it’s by far the coolest one, if you ask me. So if you do decide to stroll around at night and go bar hoping, go with friends.
