FC Barcelona info

by paembry

My family of 4 will be in Barcelona the weekend Barca plays Racing. My 9 year old son is totally in love with Barcelona football. The website says the date and time aren't fixed and no time was listed at all yet almost all the tickets are sold. So, a couple of questions. 1) When does the date and time usually get set? It says Sunday, is the day likely to change or only the time? 2) Will tickets open up once the date and time get set as season ticket holders and others realize they can't make it? 3) If we managed to find 4 seats together now and bought the tickets, can they easily be sold once we get there? I don't mean by hawking them on the street but through some legitimate channels. The problem is we take a train out to Paris Sunday night and we've got to be able to get from the game to wherever we've stashed our luggage to the train station (21:01 departure). Thanks for answers ahead of time.

Btw, We got to watch Barca play this summer when they came to Seattle from 13 rows back which was a thrill even though our Sounders got slaughtered. It was a pleasure to watch Messi and the others show us how the game can be played.

Hi,

The date and time depends on whether it is shown live on tv, if it is selected it might be moved to Saturday or the time may just change. These changes may happen anything up to 7 days before the match.

FC Barcelona is a club owned by its members. There are more members than there are seats in the stadium and all members get a chance to use their right to a seat before any remaining ones are sold to the public. Apart from the expensive Hospitality seats that is.

You can buy legitimate tickets from the official club websites or from authorised ticket agencies, but it might be safest to check for tickets at the stadium when you arrive

just to add to DoffC:
tickets are on sale 1 month before the game,
but if I were you I'd wait until the confirmation of the day + time (10 - 7 days prior ) praying for Sat. (50% chance)
as I think the only way to sell the tickests wd be 'on the street'.
It will mean that the chance of getting 4 together will be low
(you can also try on the phone)
but you may get 2 x 2 ? On the other hand , the week before is when the member who cannot go , release their seats to re-sell by th club.
Finally, it is not a top - match , so may be lucky

Thanks so much for the info. We'll see what we can get when we get there. If we don't manage tickets, are there any good places to watch on TV with kids if it is on? I think we have a tv where we are staying but I'm not sure what stations we'll have. Paige

Travel Tips for Barcelona

There are several ' must see'...

by coast2coast

There are several ' must see' s in Barcelona. The architecture alone is a great reason to visit this city. Gaudi's world reknowned architecture is stunning . The Cathedral of Sagrada Familia is truly amazing. The architecture hits you with force. Even if you are not religious at all, go, admire and think about this wonder. The views from the top are great . La Rambla, Barcelona's Oxford Street or Champs Elysees is a must see also. For people watching, admiring the architecture , colourful street vendors, acrobatics, singing- this is special. Don't miss ! ( keep an eye out for pickpockets though ) I liked Barcelonetta and the Harbour - good shops, food and a great museum of the sea . Park Guell with its's great views and amazing tiled architecture ( and Gaudi's house) is really worth seeing . Take a coffee at Cafe de l'Opera (La Rambla 74 ) Have a look at the Barri Gotic ( Gothic Quarter )- narrow winding streets and many impressive buildings, e.g. the Ajuntament ( Town Hall ) . If you like museums, try the Picasso museum ( one of the world's best collections of his work ) C.Montcada 15, off C.Princessa. Night life is not to be missed ( check the guide books for latest listings ) . A stroll around one of the quiet neighbourhoods is enjoyable ..take your pick . There are many. For myself , I loved the overall feel and experience of Barcelona- the sights, the food, the culture, the people. Sagrada Famila Cathedral and Park Guell were great. Park Montjuic is very enjoyable, as is Barcelonetta and the Harbour.

CATHEDRAL OF SANTA EULALIA

by Hosell

This is a picture of the Barcelona´s Cathedral of Santa Eulalia,built between 13th-15th centuries.Located in the Barri Gotic.Is another beautiful building and don't hesitate to go inside and take a look,it has a lot of nice small chapels also.
I just show you the top of the Cathedral because during my last visit,they were making some construction works in the exterior of the Cathedral and it was all the beautiful facade full of scaffolding as you can see on the picutre and don't looks very nice.

El Caganer

by Belsaita

In Catalunya, like in other parts of Spain, Italy and Southern France, the traditional Christmas decoration is a Nativity scene. It can be quite large, and a representation of the whole town of Bethlehem and surroundings.

However, we Catalans added an extra character that is not found in the Nativity scenes of any other culture. This extra little character is found in some corner, typically nowhere near the main scene. There is a good reason for his obscure position in the display, as "caganer" translates from Catalan to English as "defecator", and that is exactly what this little statue is doing, defecating!!

From Wikipedia:
Possible reasons for placing a man who is in the act of excreting solid waste from his posterior in a scene which is widely considered holy are as follows:
1. Just tradition.
2. Perceived humor.
3. Mythical Defecation by Dwarfs
4. Finding the Caganer is a fun game, especially for children.
5. The Caganer, by creating feces, is fertilizing the Earth. However, this is probably an a posteriori (no pun intended) explanation, and nobody would say they put the Caganer on the Nativity scene for this reason.
6. The Caganer represents the equality of all people: regardless of status, race, gender everyone defecates.

The exact origin of the Caganer is lost. What do I think?? That it is just a prove of the odd sense of humor of we Catalans, and our like for satire behind our (apparent) seriousness.

Today, you can buy “caganers” of all sizes, even featuring famous people. It has become a popular collector’s item, and probably one of the most genuine souvenirs. On the pic you can see figurines of Barça football players, local and foreigner politicians (the President of the Catalan Parliament, the Spanish president Zapatero and George Bush), and in the very middle, Prince Felipe, Princess Letizia and their child Infanta Leonor. All of them shi... togheter, LOL!

Daliwood

by tuoedisni1

Salvador Dali museum. I know, I know, there's already SO much to see in Barcelona. But if you've got an extra day, this is definitely a worthwhile trip. It takes a good 4 or 5 hours to see the whole museum, so plan for a whole day. I'd put this museum on the top of my list of Barcelona (in or around) museums.

Check out the website for more information.

Big shopping mall

by PelLihi about L'illa

Barcelona’s L’illa shopping centre is in the centre of the city on the Av. Diagonal. You can notice it because it is built in a very modern style with lots of glass and metal. Inside it is like a large long 2 level corridor which is quite sterile looking ot be honest.

It has over 130 fashion and accessories, over 4.000 m2 dedicated to sports and more than 3,000 m2 dedicated to music and literature. There are travel agencies, Restaurants, Cafes, tourist information points and a few craft shops.

I recommend going down to the basements level too, as there was a huge food market there. They are permanent shops made to look like a market. There were so many cheeses and meats around. The prices were reasonable as well. A lot of stuff: Clothes, shoes, accessoires, glasses, flowers, what have you. It depends. They have some expensive designer stores. But you can also get some stuff at reasonable prices.
