The Old City
This is where it all began over 2000 years ago. Roman ruins and Medieval palaces are begging to be explored. For instance, take in the Roman Temple and Royal Palace. After that, continue with a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter. Barcelona’s well-preserved buildings call for reflection. Similarly, Its squares and streets take you back in time. Finally, stop for a coffee or a quick snack. For example, stop at La Boqueria market for some fresh fruit!
Overlooking the city, Montjuic’s history is as deep as the city it overlooks. In this area, the Archaeology Museum, a Jewish Cemetery and the 1992 Olympic Stadium are some highlights. First, check out the Olympic Stadium, Palau Sant Jordi and the Communication Tower. Then head up to the 17th century castle. In addition to the castle, enjoy a spectacular panoramic view over the city. Don’t miss the views from the MNAC, though. Overlooking Plaza Espanya and the Magic Fountains, Barcelona spreads out before you. Before you leave visit the Joan Miro Foundation and the Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion. Both offer insights into two of the 20th centuries most influential artists.
The Modernista buildings on Passeig de Gràcia (only facade): Casa Milà (La Pedrera), Casa Batlló, Casa Amatller and Casa Lleó Morera.
Passeig de Gracia is Barcelona’s Fifth Avenue. Boutique shops and beautiful buildings line the street. Moreover, even the lamp posts and benches pay homage to the Modernista influence. All in all, this is a street not to be missed!
