Go and Connect discount card
Barcelona can be pretty expensive for tourists, so one of the best tips I can give you all is to buy a discount card, it saves you soo much money! I bought one, named the Go and Connect discount card, which was only 12 euros. With this card I was able to go out for almost nothing. I got discounts in a lot of shops, restaurants, clubs, transport rentals and more!
If you are interested you can check out their site to see where you can get the card and where you can get discounts:
I think it is a must in an expensive but amazing city like Barcelona.
There is an internet cafe by the University on Ronda d'Universitat. They charge by the time, It wasn't very expensive.
Another choice is to go to the Travel Bar in the Barri Gotic. C/Boqueria 27. They have internet access for a small fee. Have a drink while you email! :) And maybe meet some fellow travellers! They also have pub crawls. Organized trips around the area to some popular spots. Check out their website for more info on times, reservations ect.. www.barcelonatravelbar.com
Wine is about as Spanish as bullfighting. Not only is it cheap, but it's good. I found the best place to buy wine was in the local grocery store, where bottles could sell for as low as .89 euros. I didn't buy any that cheap, but for three euros you can get a bottle that is really very drinkable.
Some of the vintages are a bit foreign, meaning made from grapes that aren't quite standard to the main markets, even if most people will recognize the names. Tempranillo is excellent, but I also liked anything that came from the Rioja. Jumailla is another vintage which is unique to Spain, but there are many more, including an obscure favorite of mine called Yecla. Don't ask me about white wine, I hardly ever drink it. I tried a glass of cava (champagne) and found it great as well.
If you want a sure thing without being adventuresome, try Torres, which is a very standard, very affordable line of table wines. They also make brandy. You can find Torres wines in just about every restaurant, store and even rest stops on the highway. Quality wise, I rate it above average, and it retailed for about four euros in the grocery store. I realize this is the equivalent of encouraging stateside visitors to try Ernest & Julio Gallo, but I really did find Torres wines to be very affordable, widely available, openly consumed, and consistent in quality.
Sadly, during my visit to Barcelona, I couldn't synchronize a visit to the true corner wine shops with the afternoon siestas, Sunday closures, and sightseeing. It will have to wait for next time.
Barcelona Olympic Stadium (Estadi Olimpic)
The Barcelona Olympic stadium (formerly known as the Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc) was the venue for the 1992 Olympic games.
The stadiumhas a capacity for 55,000 spectators, which can be increased to 77,000 with the incorporation of temporary terracing. It can stage sports competitions, musical performances or any type of popular event.
This new construction is a transformation of the old stadium, of which it conserves the façade designed by the architect Pere Domènech i Roure, the ornamental frontage by the sculptor Vicenç Navarro, and the statues over the main entrance by Pau Gargallo.
Today the Barcelona Olympic stadium is open to visitors to take a look around and see where all the action took place.
Some quarters in Barcelona...
Some quarters in Barcelona arnt too much populars for typical tourist.. but im going to show you cause there is where you can find and known the real BCN.. the best quarter in the city is Gracia where streets are narrow and all is like some years ago.. seems a former little town inner it ! its gorgeous in summer when the quarter festivities gather all people in Barcelona.. so many bars, terraces, all kind of restaurants and so many nightlife on the squares.. park your car at home and go on food.. its almost impossible to park there without paying a underground car park for sure..
