Top 7 Touristy Things to do on a Trip to Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona is one of the biggest cities in Spain. It is within the Catalonian part of Spain, and most people that live in Barcelona almost see Catalonia as a separate country (but I’ll save that for another post). It is a very cultural town so if you are into city culture you will really enjoy almost every square foot of Barcelona.

Here is a list of the top 7 things to do while taking a trip to Barcelona, Spain.

La Pedrera

La PedreraMade by Gaudi (the famous artist, who’s work is all over Barcelona), La Pedrera is a building  in the Eixample district of Barcelona. La Pedrera’s real name is Casa Mila but most people know it as La Pedrera. La Pedrera means ‘The Quarry’. It was built between 1905-1910 (although was considered finished in 1912). If you like architecture you should check it out!

Museu Picasso

Museu PicassoI will just assume you have heard of Picasso. He has a museum all about his work, his rise to fame and a large collection of his art. The museum is set in a medieval palace. It is very impressive.

Barcelona Cathedral

Barcelona CathedralThe Barcelona  cathedral – also known properly as ‘Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia’ – is a very big and very impressive building that was built between the 13th and 15th centuries. You will probably recognize the building from films as it has appeared in many.
