Sensible Itinery and Montjuic by Car

by JohnnySpangles

Hi,
I'm driving to Barcelona for two days with my family from our campsite near Perpignan in the middle of August on a Wednesday.

We have a hotel booked near Llacuna metro station. On Day One (Wednesday) we intend to leave the car at the Hotel at around 11am, walk to Sagrada Familia, get a taxi to Parc Guell and then get the metro down from Lesseps to Diagonal then walk past Casa Mila/Casa Batllo and finish up dining in La Rambla...does that make sense?

Also... on Day Two (Thursday) we want to drive from the hotel to Montjuic to swim in the Piscina Municipal ( I love the Kylie video!), see the fundacio Joan Miro and maybe catch the Magic Fountains if we stay late...is there somewhere sensible/safe to park the car on, or near, Montjuic?

Hi "Potato" :)

I do live about 10 minutes from metro Llacuna! :)

You first day makes sense except that La Rambla (I assume you mean the 'famous' one) is the worse place in town to eat.
The walk from your hotel to SF can take you about 30 min and it's not really interesting (unless you like strange mixes of design modern office buildings and abandoned factories). I would better save your legs and take the metro from Llacuna to Verdaguer, that's 10 min from the Sagrada Familia. Then you can take the metro L2 from SF to Pg de Gracia (casa Batllo/Mila) and then take the bus #24 to Park Güell. You can take the same bus back to Pl. Catlunya and walk to the Old Town. El Born area is great for small restaurants. As well the area of Raval near MACBA. But Las Ramblas is a tourist trap.

If your travel dates are 18-19, you may head to Gracia to end your day. It will be their summer festival and the streets decorations are amazing and a real must-see.

On your second day, you can usually park in Montjuic without problems, at least during the day. Do not miss the Magic Fountain, it's really unique.

Have fun!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Where to store luggage in Barcelona

by stressball

Whether you have a late flight or you're just passing through Barcelona, you may have the need to store your luggage for a period of time. Let me make your life easier by telling you that there are two places in Barcelona where you can store your luggage.

The first is the Estacio de Nord (Bus station). The website is http://www.barcelonanord.com/default_eng.asp
This website will give you the address as well as tell you how to get there by metro.

The second place you can store luggage is the Estacio de Sants Train & Metro Station. I do not have the exact address, but it's very easy to get to as it is also a metro stop. From this train station you can also get to the airport in 1/2 hour for about 2 euros.

La Rambla

by seagoingJLW

You must take a stroll along La Rambla. It is a wide boulevard with a large central pedestrian area. In the center are all sorts of stalls and stand offering various wares.

Paella

by dlandt

Paella is the signature dish of Catalonia. It comes in all sorts of different styles, my favorite being seafood. It is essentially rice cooked in a large shallow pan with different ingredients blending into a sauce.

VT's labeep (no longer on VT but infinitely willing to assist visitors to Barcelona) informed me that Thursday is paella day, and that most neighborhood restaurants will carry paella on that day. She also says that many places won't put much seafood in it to save money. Most people told me that for old school paella, you need to go to Barceloneta. When I went there, everything met my expectations. I should add that the shrimp they used was extremely fresh even by European standards. I hadn't tasted anything that fresh since, quite literally, waiting on the pier and buying shrimp off the fishing boat as it came in.

Day Trip: Figueres (Salvador Dali Museum)

by ramot418

There is nothing special to see in Figueres - except the Dali Museum. This unique place is a "must-see" and is worth "sacrificing" an entire day of your stay in Barcelona.

First a little geography. Figueres is about 140 km from Barcelona, towards and near the French border. Along the way is Girona - a town also worth visiting.

By car:
There is really no reason to do this day trip by car, unless you have one already for another reason.
Take the AP-7/E-15 autoroute from Barcelona to Figueres, getting off at Exit 4. Unfortunately, there are no signs to the Dali Museum once you get off the main thoroughfare. Use a good local map (e.g., Google Maps) to get from Exit 4 to Av Salvador Dali, and then go on it for about 2 km until you reach the Museum. You can't miss this unique structure. There is a covered parking lot right next to it - relatively expensive, but very convenient. I paid about 5 euros for 2 hours.

By train:
Take the train from either the main Barcelona station (Sants) or the Passeig de Gracia station. They leave about every hour or two. The trip to Figueres takes about 2 hours. From the train station in Figueres to the Museum it's about 750 meters so it is definitely walkable if the weather is OK.

If you want to do Girona as well on the same day , you must get an early start, as you should allow at least 3-4 hours for the Dali museum. Do the math: 2 hour train ride + half hour to museum + 4 hours at the Museum + half hour back to station + 1 hour to Girona + at least one hour waiting /eating time + 3-4 hours in Girona + 1.5 hours back to Barcelona. If you leave Barcelona at about 6:30-7:00am it can be done. However, I advise doing it in 1.5 days with an overnight in Girona after visiting the Dali Museum. Do your own personal calculations and decide what is best for you.

Placa del Pi and a very Beautiful Building

by dlytle

In the Placa del Pi, near the old church, stands this ornately decorated, pink-colored building facing the square. This is one of the most beautifully decorated buildings that I saw in the old area near the La Ramblas and it is worth a visit to see.
