We want to recommend a short guide featuring the most visited sights in Barcelona. Charming places in the city that are absolutely packed with tourists, but don’t let that put you off because they are definitely worth a visit.

1. Sagrada familia

We know you’re waiting for Sagrada Familia to be finished before you visit, but be realistic – that will never happen. No more excuses, if the Japanese revere it with so much faith, it must be something special. Now it’s time to be patient and find out if it was worth the wait. Judging by the ratings, we swear that you will say: yes!

2. Passeig de Gràcia

Paseo de Gracia is one of the major avenues in Barcelona, one of the most visited streets in Barcelona with a distinctive look and feel. We challenge you to take the Barcelona city tour bus and make new friends among the legion of tourists with their cameras and playing Where’s Wally in one of these Gaudí buildings Casa Batllo and Casa Milá. You’re guaranteed to have a good laugh!

3.- Las Rambla

Where can you find an eccentric painter, a gloomy mime, a lost tourist and a sweet elderly couple? A West Anderson movie isn’t the answer because we’re talking about one of the busiest street in Barcelona: Las Ramblas. Here you can enjoy gastronomic delights in the Boqueria Market or listen to talented tenors at the Liceu Opera House. The Rambla is a lot of Rambla!

Going down Las Ramblas, after greeting Columbus and arriving at Maremagnum you’ll immerse yourself in the Mediterranean sea and discover the mysteries of the deep sea! Jump right in!
