Things To Do In Barcelona, Spain

Want more travel tips from a personal trainer in Chicago? Here's a list of places to visit in Barcelona, Spain. I've also included suggestions from my personal trained clients. You should also check out Tripadvisor ( for more ideas and reviews!

-Ciutadella Park: Beautiful fountain (pictured)!

-Las Ramblas: I suggest visiting this famous tree-lined street before dusk. Although I believe it’s safe, it isn’t well lit and seems a little seedy after dark.

-Basilica of the Sagrada Familia tour: Book a slot ahead of time. The line is incredibly long when purchasing a ticket on the same day.

-La Pedrera tour: Occasionally they host live music on the rooftop! Definitely worth checking out!

-Picasso Museum tour: Europe’s best collection of Picasso paintings.

-Barcelona panoramic bus tour

-Museum of Catalan Art tour

-Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic): Historic part of Barcelona.

-Beaches: Reminds me of the beaches in Rio (Brazil).

-Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria (market): Buy fresh fruit and dried serrano ham!!!

-Park Guell: A must see…try to time it around sunset (check the website, though: the park has limited hours and you must purchase a ticket).

-Barcelona Pipa Club: (suggestion from a friend) Tucked in a corner of the Plaza Reial is the door to this somewhat secret jazz club. We rang a bell, walked up three flights of steps and were transported into something like an old black-and-white movie. We sat in the dimly lit lounge where we could still hear the concert in full swing a room away. Plaça Reial, 3.

-Montjuïc: It's an amazing view of the city from the top of this mountain and there's a cable car ride that you can take up (you must purchase tickets).

-Restaurants: Tapas 24. I also recommend the Tapas Tour in Gracia (The Barcelona Taste - and one of the high end restaurants in the port (check Tripadvisor).
