ELECTRIC SCOOTER or WHEELCHAIR
Another for going around Barcelona is by hiring an electric scooter or electric wheelchair for the disabled or the elder people. This would allow you to see that city at your own pace riding on the side walks of the city. The company that rents them out is called COSMO SCOOTER and you can get more information at their web site - www.cosmoscooter.com
This company would pick up and drop the scooter from your hotel so its pretty cool. they have different models based ion the needs of each person and the prices go from 23 Euros for one day to 128 for a week. You can pay with your credit card. A deposit of 150 Euros is required by the company. You can contact them at the following phone numbers 690 84 55 74 / 690 84 55 73 o e mail them at email@example.com
Did I tell you that they are not 2 wheelers - they are 3 or 4 wheels depending on the model and anyone can use them.
Gathering spot for locals and tourists alike
Here at the public square in the city center, people pass through the square, meet and chat, while street performers and pigeons happily entertain. The tall palm trees and fountains just add the right Spanish flavour to the scene.
I've put this as beach activities because, strictly speaking, Fundació Claror's Poliesportiu Marítim does have private access to a beach and a place for members to keep their clothes and belongings while they enjoy the sun and sand. Nevertheless, this is so much more than just a locker room for the beach! I spent lots of time at Poliesportiu Marítim when I lived in Barcelona, partly because I was fanatical about making it to the pool, but also because the facilities were incredible. Inside the gym, there is a small weights and cardio room (small compared to North American style gyms) as well as a few multipurpose rooms where they do spinning classes and aerobics. The real gem, however, is the pool section. There is a laps pool of about 25 m length, plus a shorter salt water pool, a children's pool, a very warm pool, a cold pool (18C), plus a pool with a countercurrent (only for walking, not swimming) and one with various jets and showers for massage. Oh, yes, and a jacuzzi and dry and wet saunas (separate for men and women). There are also full locker facilities with washrooms and showers.
True, this is probably not what one would expect to visit when staying in Barcelona, but it is quite a nice facility, and if you're *** about missing your workout times (especially with all that you'll be eating in Barcelona), a place to work off the calories in a bit of luxury. Swimmers have to have proper swimsuits, sandals (flipflops) and bathing caps. Everyone (even the bald) must wear a bathing cap. For the beach, you should bring whatever you need, as buying it at the gym is not cheap.
The Torre Agbar is a unique skyscraper situated at Plaça de les Glòries at Barcelona. It was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and built by Dragados and opened to public in September 2005. It is named after its owners, the Agbar Group
Cigar from Las Ramblas
There is a nice tobacco shop at Las Ramblas with great range of tobacco products and accersorties. Cigars from Cuba, Jamaica, Spain. Cigarettes, pipes, tobaccos to pipe etc. All kind of accertoties: lighters, holders, humidors etc. I don't know why in Barcelona I could buy the quality of cigar for one-third price than in Hungary. Maybe taxiation differs.
