    Favorite thing: A simple advice:never take the metro in Barcelona unless you have to arrive somewhere on time.It`s a waste .We spent a lot of time wandering along the streets.In every corner,on the large boulevards or on the narrow streets your eyes are attracted by magnificent houses:surprising details,stained-glass windows,stone flowers,wrought iron on balconies,gardens on the roof,azulejos.

    Fondest memory: Every walk was a delight.
    Despite all the museums and other countless attractions,Barcelona`s houses are my reason for a new visit

    Walking in Barcelona

    by zumodemango Updated Apr 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the best things in Barcelona is walking all around. Of course, there are many interesting museums but i think Barcelona is a city to walk and discover throught its streets, squares, churches, buildings and palaces.
    To see life in the streets, listen to the music or the bells, enjoy a drink in a terrace. Day or Night Barcelona is alive.

    Fondest memory: Every time i go to Barcelona i feel happy but at the same time sad, remembering good things for the three years i lived there. Hopefully, in the future i will be back to live there.
    I have lovely memories: the Port, the sea, the beach in early summer, la Plaça Reial, el Laberint d'Horta, Plaça St.Felip Neri, Santa Maria del Mar, Casa Batlló. Small streets in Barri Gotic, shops and cafes in El Born. Sant Jordi, 23th April, the city full of book street markets and roses. One of the best concerts i've been: U2 in Montjuic(1997).

    Take a walk in the city

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When you are tired on all normal must see activities, it's always nice to take a walk in the city, and just explore the town as it is... without following the guide books. I can promise, it's still a good experience.

    General walk round

    by HORSCHECK Updated Jul 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Most of the tourist spots in Barcelona are located in walking distance to La Rambla and in the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic). A stroll through the narrow alleyways and along the broad avenues offers many hidden views of the city. Monumental plazas and fountains, cafes and bars invite for a short break.

    Favorite thing: People watch! Barcelona has wonderful pedestrian walkways and cafes that allow for perfect spots to sit and enjoy a drink and watch the world go by.

    Fondest memory: Barcelona is a wonderfull place to visit. While visiting it feels as if the city is alive with life, culture and excitement. The city is full of random pieces of art that provide an eclectic mix of new and old.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: It is absolutely necessary that you descended to marinaded it. Far from the museums, to the port, there is not an immense glazed building. Of the outside, in the beginning, one can believe in another museum, but well on the contrary it is an immense center of boutique! If you want bring back something of Barcelona of unique, pass by there!

    Fondest memory: Best to discover Barcelona is to leave of the big streets and to leave to the discovery with the passing of the small alleys. There will always be someone for you help to recover your path.

    Favorite thing: Go shopping! Between the Plaça de Catalunya and C.Portaferrissa and along Av.Portal de l'Angel,you can find an important shopping area. There's also two department stores there.
    Único en el mundo, denominado Shopping Line que desde el mar hasta la parte alta de la Diagonal, aglutina la más representativa oferta comercial de la ciudad y forma uno de los mayores centros comerciales a cielo abierto de Europa. A lo largo de toda la zona del Shopping Line y en otros puntos de Barcelona, se encuentran las tiendas identificadas con el distintivo Shopping Line. Estas tiendas, son sinónimo de marca de calidad por su atención y servicios a sus clientes, sus excelentes productos y sus atractivos escaparates que convirten el paseo en una experiencia inolvidable. Cuando visite Barcelona busque las tiendas Shopping Line y compruebe Vd. mismo, cual es nuestra diferencia.

    Fondest memory: I wouldn't describe this as a fond memory, quite the opposite actually but I thought I'd tell you about it. Soon after arriving in Barcelona, we got lost. We had no idea where to go or how to find the town centre. We found a corner shop and my parents tried to force me to go in and use my limited spanish to ask where the shops were. It was awful. I was very shy at the time and really didn't want to do this. In the end, my dad with a very strong english accent tried to say the spanish which I would tell him but not use myself. It didn't work and I felt really bad :(

    Favorite thing: Take the tourist bus when you first visit this town. It brings you to the most interesting tourist-places. You can get of at each stop. Almost every fifteen minutes you can take a next bus.

    Fondest memory: This city has much to offer. Heights and beach, architecture, tapas, and it just feels goood to be there and walk around.

    Favorite thing: Taking a stroll through Barcelona's streets on Sunday morning, we came to an out of the way square, where these wonderful gegants wellcomed us. These giants take often part of folk festivities. Aren't they handsome!

    Favorite thing: Take a stroll along the Waterfront.

    Fondest memory: A newly built waterfront with a big shopping centre and entertainment centre. There are lots of resturants too. Do try the seafood paella. Paella is considered the national dish of Spain. It is a dish of steam rice. A must try for any visit to Spain.
