Barcelona is one of the nicest cities to visit. Its museums, theatres, art galleries and nightlife are of an impressive high standard. Besides that, this art and design centre has a lot of interesting sights to offer to it's visitors. Here are some must see places:
Bishop?s Palace
A new structure begun in 1889 to replace the original palace, which had been destroyed by a fire, the Bishop?s Palace had a storied history during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Gaudi abandoned the work after the Bishop Juan Bautista Grau i Vallespin?s died, and the palace was not occupied until 1961.
Sagrada Familia Church
With its soaring, expressionist towers, Sagrada Familia is Antonio Gaudi?s most famous creation. And it is not yet finished! Begun in 1882, construction on the church continues, and is funded by Barcelona?s tourism industry.
Passeig de Gracia
Perhaps the most popular shopping street in Barcelona, the Passeig de Gracia is a sophisticated area providing shopping and dining to those wanting something fancier and quieter than the high spirits of Las Ramblas.
The Poble Espanyol
The Poble Espanyol is a collection of buildings showcasing architectural styles characteristic of Spain. A real village, with no motorized transportation, the Poble Espanyol was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition in Barcelona.
Picasso Museum
Pablo Ruiz Picasso lived in Barcelona as a teenager, and the city?s tribute to the artistic genius contains more than 3,800 works in its permanent collection. Located on the Carrer Moncada, the Picasso Museum first opened in 1963.
Gothic Quarter
Perhaps the best place in Barcelona to experience ancient architecture alongside the most modern structures, the Gothic Quarter is located on what once was an ancient Roman village. With its winding, labyrinthine streets and its 14th century cathedral, the Gothic Quarter is a very interesting place to lose oneself in the city.
Olympic Stadium
The former Olympic Stadium, built for the 1992 Olympic Games, is still a thriving athletic venue. With its capacity to accommodate 55,000 people, the home of the 1992 Olympic Games is also used for large musical and other cultural events.

  2. An overview of some of the interesting places to visit in Barcelona.

    Barcelona is one of the most popular cities in the world, thanks to the rich culture and history of this Catalonian city. In this article, I will bring you for a short tour around Barcelona and introduce some of the many interesting places in the city.
    Las Ramblas

    Location : 41° 22? 53” N, 2° 10? 23” E

    Getting there : There are 3 Metro stations connected to this area. All 3 of them are on the L3, or green line – Catalunya, Liceu and Drassanes

    What’s interesting?

    This is a very popular area for tourists and locals. You can witness a lot of live performances such as actors, mimes, musicians, etc. There are also a lot of small shops selling souvenirs and handicrafts. Besides that, this area is also very popular with cafes and restaurants (serving the famous tapas) but most of them charge pretty expensive price. Do beware that this area can get very crowded and pickpockets roam freely here.
