It is good thow that you are planning your trip in advance.

Always good to prepare in advance.

On the top right hand side of every VT page there is a Search box.
Type the word Barcelona into it and click on Go! You will get many, many pages of tips on Barcelona from VT members that have visited there.

Also you can click on the name of any poster on the right hand side of the forum page above the picture. That will take you to that person's home page and from there you can click on Barcelona to see that person's tips for the city.

Have fun! Preparing is half the fun of the trip.

Re: Need friend in Barcelona - First travel

Hi Jolien...

I'm thinking of going there for 3 weeks, depending on the price of accommodations cause I will mostly be out rather than stay in :)

Unfortunately, it would have been great to come while you are there, especially if you're staying till May... but maybe by then you can post here some fabulous places you went and your experiences.

I'm leaving the family circle for a change... It has too much become of a routine to celebrate Xmas and New Year with family.

Anyway, hope you can keep in touch... By the way, y r u there?

Cheers,

J.

Hi,

I´m sorry for the late reply this webpage is so big I couldn´t find the forum again. I´m new so think i´ll have to learn some things.
I will certainly keep you posted about the things i´m discovering here.
Three weeks is a long time but then you can see allot of Barcelona and the rest of Catalunya like Girona or a visit to Madrid because it´s only 3 hours away. I´m thinking of going to San Sebastia with some friends, but i´m not sure when.

If you have any questions just ask.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Walk down 'La Ramba'. It's a...

by mariana2002

Walk down 'La Ramba'. It's a pedestrian street filled with street vendors, gift shops, restaurants and tons of street performers. You will encounter some of the most talented 'Street Statues'

If you've never been there, you should definitely take one of the bus tours which points out several different points of interest. The Gaudi museum and Gaudi's buildings are another must see.
You should also try and get to the museum where Snowflake, one of only 2 or 3 albino gorillas in the world lives.

Montjuïc, the hill overlooking...

by eladr

Montjuïc, the hill overlooking the city centre from the southwest, is home to some fine art galleries, leisure attractions, soothing parks and the main group of 1992 Olympic sites. Approach the area from Plaça d'Espanya and on the north side you'll see Plaça de Braus Les Arenes, a former bullring where the Beatles played in 1966. Behind it lies Parc Joan Miró, where stands Mir´'s highly phallic sculpture Dona i Ocell (Woman and Bird). Nearby, the Palau Nacional houses the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, which has an impressive collection of Romanesque art. Stretching up a series of terraces below the Palau Nacional are fountains, including the biggest, La Font Màgica, which comes alive with a free lights and music show on summer evenings. In the northwest of Montjuïc is the 'Spanish Village', Poble Espanyol. At first glance it's a tacky tourist trap, but it also proves to be an intriguing scrapbook of Spanish architecture, with very convincing copies of buildings from all of Spain's regions. The Anella Olímpica (Olympic Ring) is the group of sports installations where the main events of the 1992 games were held. Down the hill, visit masterpieces of another kind in the Fundaci´ Joan Mir´, Barcelona's gallery for the greatest Catalan artist of the 20th century. This is the largest single collection of the his work.

The picture is the view from top of the Montjuïc.

THANKS TO THE FINE CLIMATE....

by eden_teuling

you wil also meet all kinds of people often from far away countries who try to earn some money by e.g. making music.

It was difficult to call this music, it was some kind of bbbbbbbbbbooooooooooooohhhhhhm , very low tone and little variation.

One day I will remember the name and let you know....
He was a New Zealander at the entrance of the famous Parc de Guëll (architect: Antoni GAUDI)

Barrio del Raval

by PINOYSAILOR

If you want to get away from all the tourists, head towards El Raval. It's only about 10 minute walk from La Ramblas. The prices here are a lot cheaper including the mojito for only 3.50 euro. 8 euro for a one liter cup. Ethnic restaurants are plentifull and it will not cost you an arm and leg to enjoy a good meal. It could be intimidating for a regular tourist to walk through there but if you try to blend in and if you use your common sense, you should be able to get out there alive ;-)

Is this typical of Barcelona?

by Elisabcn about Souvenirs

You'll find a lot of souvenirs shops around Barcelona and specially along the ramblas. There are a lot of things sold as "typical from Barcelona and Catalonia" that they don't have anything to do with the city. Here are some examples: -
Typical Souvenirs
-t-shirts
-postcards
-porró (to drink beer and wine)
-barretina (the traditional catalan hat)
-a good catalan wine can be a very appreciated souvenir
-the flag of catalonia
-pictures, draws or posters of miró, dalí, tàpies and picasso
-any gift about modernisme and gaudí

Non typical Souvenirs
-mexican hat (after 30years i'm still asking myself why are they sold in Barcelona!!)
-castañuelas
-sevillana dress, cordobés hat
-toros (bulls, Barcelona is an antitaurina city)
-Barcelona's Hard Rock Caffè t-shirt (why? they are american!)
