How to make most of your time in Barcelona

How to make most of your time in Barcelona

Barcelona; even the name itself sounds fascinating and appealing. Then who on earth would not like to visit this place? And, when you have decided to visit it, then the foremost thing that will encounter your mind is; ‘How to make most of your time in Barcelona?’ This is why we are here to guide you. From Messi to Gaudi, put up of people to the gigantic architecture, devouring on produce to visiting the sea, Barcelona’s to-do list is a never-ending read. Before comes your time to go back, you must de below mentioned things.

Casa Batllo



Casa Batlló is compared to Claude Monet's Water Lilies, and it's simple to see why: In stained glass shards, it appears once blue, then it appears green, then it shimmers like the glassy lake’s layer. After having a look at what Gaud did with Park Güell, Josep Batlló, a textile industrialist commissioned Gaud to design this mansion. Casa Batlló is inspired by nature, with no straight lines (since they don't exist in nature), pillars of stone that can bend like animal bones, and a huge, stairwell in ocean blue color that appears like something out of Jules Verne. The outcome of this is both intimate and grand.

Catedral de Barcelona



It might lack the quirk and buzz of La Sagrada Familia, but it does have court: a massive temple of Gothic. This temple of Gothic towers above the small matchbox and streets shops. It was built on the site of a temple in Rome. Before 2,000 years, when the city Barcelona was known with the name Bàrcino (you can trail the fragments of the aqueduct nearby and the old Roman walls). The present-day, cathedral's official name, divine Cross’ Cathedral and Saint Eulalia, celebrates Eulalia, a native girl who denied abandoning her Christian devotion in response to Roman ruler Diocletian's ultimatum. Just like any other religious building, it is lovely and reminiscent.

Tibidabo



Tibidabo mountain is much more when it is just a fairground. You'll first see it from the city center: the outline of a gorgeous temple high on a summit entices you to visit. The temple will never fail to attract you from its jaw-dropping architecture. After paying a visit here, you would never regret it and you would definitely desire to come again. There is no doubt that you would be recommending this place to your friends and family. You're taken aback by the enjoyment park next door, with its retro-styled attractions similar to a Ferris wheel with color-pop sitting pods, created for the panoramas as much as the thrills. The sights are appealing to adults, while the rides are appealing to children. The front row seats are the best.

La Boqueria



La Boqueria traces its origin in 1217. The life of this market started back then. It is Barcelona’s ancient market. Back then it started as a simple cluster of meat stalls on La Rambla. Over 200 stands join together like a foodie's choir, with traders shouting, drinks clinking, and welcoming greetings sung out. Despite the ether, it is the scent that fascinates you: sea-salty, recently sautéed fish, warm: the kind that enthralls your nose, stimulates your stomach, creates your mouth anxious, and requires to be washed away with Cava’s glass. As you enter, get a fruit poser from one of the brightly colored kiosks. Then do a lap: the deeper you go, the more valuable it is.

Picasso Museum



Picasso first came to Barcelona as a youngster and returned frequently during his life. He was just 14 years back then. He deserved a museum sprawled across five palaces. Gothic archways and courtyards lead to white studios that illuminate his paintings on the lower level. The rooms upstairs are extravagant, with heroic painted ceilings that ooze with clear chandeliers. Guests come to view Picasso's paintings. However, it's the unique environment that keeps them coming back. You might get disappointed for a while if you're imagining Picasso's well-known masterpieces. Guernica is on display at the Reina Sofa in Madrid, and Weeping Woman is on display at the Tate Modern in London. Everything in Barcelona's museum revolves around those postcard photos. It depicts every stroke of brush (entire 4,251 works) and tells how he progressed from a skilled painter to a Cubist innovator, as well as those things we didn't know he did, such as ceramics, in chronological order.

Parc del Laberint d’Horta



Barcelona is known for architectural masterpieces. On the other end of the wildness range, Barcelona's ancient park is salon-style maintained, with lily-glazed ponds, magnificent temples, a cypress maze, and mythological figure sculptures, that's definitely put the gardener's pruning shears to work. The labyrinth, a maze made up of intricate spirals of thick greenery, is undoubtedly the most notable feature. It is based on the Greek legend of Theseus slaying the Minotaur (a half-human, half-monster) just to start loving Ariadne.

Santa Maria del Mar



We can bet a thousand dollars on the fact that any local would name Santa Maria del Mar as their favorite church when asked about the same. Ever you have gone through Ildefonso Falcones' page-turner Cathedral of the Sea, then we guess you very well know about it than you might contemplate: the novel's setting is the structure of a Gothic church, with the leading role working as a stonemason. The church's history is almost as bizarre as fiction: it was rattled by a big earthquake in 1428. Then it is shocking to know the fact that in July 1936, this church was burned for straight 11 days. The black scorch scars on the roof can still be seen inside. The building contains 43-foot-tall columns that are spaced 43 feet apart. When you mix that vivacity with large swaths of sullied glass, it seems as if you're being pulled up into the sky. The facts of this church are bawling in front of you to pay a visit.

Park Guell



Park Güell is a surreal environment that includes Barcelona's famed mosaic lizard which is a printed copy on several postcards, as well as spiral towers that resemble fairground slides. Entrepreneur Eusebi Güell and Antoni Gaud collaborated to create the city's grandest park. It's critical to be aware of your ticket alternatives. You can go inside the park for free, but not to the great portions. One Monumental Cove ticket is required for this. You must reserve in advance online and come on time for your scheduled appointment, as there is no wiggle space with timing.

Parc de la Ciutadella



Regional parliament, a zoo, and other attractions and areas for relaxing can be found in Barcelona's huge city park. Cascada Monumental is a magnificent golden waterfall. This waterfall both impresses and relaxes visitors. It was designed with assistance from a young Gaud. It's the same with the tranquil boating lake nearby. Luis Domenech, I Motaner has built the Castell de Tres Dragons which is in the right of entry of Arcade Triomf. It was originally the zoology museum, but it is currently closed for renovations with no estimated reopening date. The Hivernacle and cast iron Umbracle in front are another gorgeous, yet mysterious, series of structures. Go for a real taste of city park life.

Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site



It was supposed to be a building that people loved recuperating in, and it was built by famed Modernist architect Llus Domènech I Montaner (of Palau de la Msica Catalana fame) with all the elements of Catalan Art Nouveau—stained glass windows, epic pillars, extravagant domes. Rather than the clinical-looking settings we know today, his concept was for a garden city for caring for the sick, with buildings aligned for optimal sunlight disclosure, for example. While the clinic was moved to the north in 2009, this location had its renovation, becoming a memorial and art site. The ramps for the Barcelona Fashion Week are now held there.

Palau de la Musica Catalana



It's the Castle of Catalan Music, and you're here for the sights as well as the sounds. Chandeliers, stained glass, and roses abound in the auditorium. Llus Domènech I Montaner, a Modernist architect, designed this structure, which some think is even more beautiful than Gaud's La Sagrada Familia. Today's musical events range from choral to jazz, pianists, operas, and flamenco like La Traviata and Carmen, which were originally built to host the Orfeó Català symphonic choir. Here you might wonder about the choice of visiting in daylight or at night. For the daylight offers spectacular views and the night offers music.

The Barcelona Pavilion



This Pavilion was created for the 1929 International Exposition, which was a global display of architectural styles, by the German architects Lily Reich and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. After the exhibition, the pavilion was demolished and returned to Germany. It wasn't until decades later that the architectural community realized how important Mies van der Rohe's instituting sign of modernist architecture was. In the year 1980, the City Council of Barcelona sought the help of a group of Catalan architects to create a delicate, evocative reproduction from rescued images and sketches. The Pavilion's overriding message is that it's minor than most people expect, so use it as a battery recharge. You can skip it if you are short of time.

Fundacio Joan Miro



Miró, whose works span from a whiteboard with a lone black line to vibrant, primary-colored, robot-like figures, requires a specific type of environment. So it's no surprise that Miró collaborated on the project with one of his friends, Josep Llus Sert. By Barcelona's ideals, it's modern and minimalist—certainly not La Sagrada Familia. The best aspect is that you're viewing Miró's work just how he intended it to be seen. Whatever your feelings on Miró, the accumulation is vibrant and exuberant, free of the pompous pretense that can sometimes be found in art museums.

Barceloneta



Barceloneta is the beach equivalent of a high school jock: popular, loud, and rowdy. What is its take on a buff torso? A band of sand that's no less of a prima donna; at the one end, the W Hotel's metallic, sail-like form, and at the other, architect Frank Gehry's blazing gold statue of a fish. You know you've reached at Barceloneta when you see it. If you're seeking the clearest waters, and the whitest sand Barceloneta isn't the place to go. It is, nevertheless, practical, crazy, and a must-see visit carnival.

La Sagrada Familia



It's almost impossible to visit Barcelona without seeing La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi's spectacular temple devoted to the Divine Family, widely identified as the world's biggest incomplete cathedral. It will be considered a crime. The elusive completion date is unknown; local theorists say that it would never be completed to retain the project's in-progress cachet. Make sure to reserve a ticket in advance (days are available three months in advance) so you can see the rainbow stained glass and the vaults. When you visit, add on an extra audio commentary and a walk-up one among the two towers, we recommend the Nativity Façade.

Nau Bostik



Barcelona boasts a plethora of recognized museums, many of which have celebrated names and are located in well-known neighborhoods. Nau Bostik isn't any of those things, and this is why we adore it. Take the subway to La Sagrera and stroll about 10 minutes over one uptown district that leaves you wondering whether you've become lost, looking for a brightly colored striped painting on the wall of a factory. The essence of the Nau Bostik is captured in this work by street artist Elian Chali from Argentina.

Palo Market Fest



Take a left-out factory in the most optional section of town, grow enough of the foliage to finance your local garden center for the rest of your life, and a lot of the word "concept space." Isn't it fashionable? Palo Market Fest thinks the same. Its atmosphere, on the other hand, has the deep radiance of having had a few too many: live music offers a striking shopping soundtrack, while beer bars and unbelievably amazing food trucks ensure that everyone has a better mood.
