Barcelona has been described as “an enchantress among cities”. It is sometimes also called the “Rose of Fire” or “City of Wonders”! There are so many wonderful things to do in Barcelona. This stunning city in Spain is simultaneously traditional and cosmopolitan. In fact, many would agree that Barcelona has something for everyone to enjoy! So, if you already found monthly stay accommodation in Barcelona, and you are now wondering what to do? Here are the top six things that you must do when visiting Barcelona for a month.
1. Explore Sagrada Familia
Sagrada Familia is easily the most visited memorial on the Iberian Peninsula. It was produced by the mind of Gaudí in an artistic time of spiritual distress. Antoni Gaudí, the architectural genius whose creations attract millions of travelers each year, has many signature contributions to the Sagrada Familia and left his mark on the Nativity Facade sector. We recommend visiting the Sagrada Familia’s Tower to see the stunning design!
2. Visit the Golden Square
In the 19th century, Barcelona demolished its city walls to create the Eixample district. This area was formed around the Old City. In this location, many wealthy families eagerly built fashionable residences and apartment buildings. This area is now known as the Golden Square. It is full of modernist buildings and has an entire district with luxury brands, shopping, dining, restaurants, and cafes. Anyone looking to relax or explore a posh atmosphere should definitely visit here!
3. Take a Stroll Through the Gothic Quarter
You absolutely do not want to miss the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Visiting here is like traveling back in time. You can soak in the history of Roman times and look at structures that have endured for hundreds, if not thousands of years. As you walk through the narrow and dark alleyways, you will get a feel for what medieval Barcelona was like. History buffs will love visiting here!
4. Spend Weekends At Born, Ciutadella, And Arc De Triomf
Known as Barcelona’s seafarers’ quarter, this area was partially demolished during the Spanish Succession War. The “Ciutadella” was garrisoned as a political prison until it was demolished and replaced by a Victorian park of the same name. Barcelona’s first museum and the central market were also built here. Today, the sites of Born and Ciutadella are favorite destinations for locals and visitors. We recommend going on the weekend when there are lots of activities taking place. Bars, craft workshops, nice restaurants to know the local gastronomy, and art galleries abound in this area! There are also many relics to investigate. Or, sunbathe on the grass during a weekend festival.
5. Watch Soccer at Camp Nou
The renowned soccer team, FC Barcelona, plays at Camp Nou stadium. This must-to-see destination is the perfect location for soccer fans who will be in Barcelona for a while. It is also great for those who want to understand why a multi-sport club is so critical to the ethos of the local population.
6. Relax at the Beach and Visit the Ocean Front
You can’t miss Barcelona’s beaches! Lay in the pristine sand, eat at popular restaurants, or visit many of the tourist attractions located along the popular coastline. The coastline is divided into older and newer sections. They are all worth checking out if you have the time. For sun, volley ball, and refreshing water, this is the place to be.
So there you have it! These are some of the best things to check out if you are in Barcelona. But it is not all. You should definitely walk around and discover things by yourself, or ask directly to people good spots to see.
