  • It’s crucial to understand that Barcelona believes itself to be a part of Catalonia, not Spain. Do not get involved in any conflicts with the local people in this topic or hurt their sentiment in any way.
  • Walking on the street in a bikini can get you fined.
  • Get a 10-T card for traveling in the subway. It allows you to travel multiple times at a lower price.
  • Don’t eat or buy souvenirs from La Rambla, if it can be avoided. Buy souvenirs from a local or handicraft store.

Night Life

Nightlife in Barcelona is more than late parties and clubbing, though it doesn't lack any of that. Beaches turn to dance clubs in the evenings and international DJ festivals attract some of the biggest names. If you are one of those with a quirky taste in music, Barcelona's clubs host many Alternative, Pop-Rock, and Indie musicians. It is necessary to remember that nightclubs in Barcelona do not get crowded until 2 a.m. in the morning. If clubbing isn't your jam at all, you can still look out for live outdoor performances, attend an open-air movie under the stars, or catch the Magic Fountain of Montjuic show.

Must See

  • Don't forget to catch an FC Barcelona match. 
  • Go to Sagrada Familia to see Gaudi's incomplete church building.
  • Walk on La Rambla.
  • Visit the Magic Fountain of Montjuic.
  • Spend a few hours at the Picasso Museum.
  • Take a walk to Park Guell by Gaudi.

Experiences
