Barcelona is probably best known for its football team, who recently won the Champions League for a third time. Barcelona FC offers a tour of its football stadium which includes a walk around the grounds, a look inside the players changing rooms and a visit to the football museum. As you can imagine this tour is very popular, so look into booking places before your visit. If you are a big football fan then look into buying tickets for a Barcelona FC match, tickets come out one or two weeks before a match and can easily be brought online for a decent price.
However, there is more to Barcelona than just football! Barcelona is home to some of the most beautiful architecture in the world including, the Temple Expiatori Sagrada Familia. This is a catholic church designed by Gaudi which is still not finished! It has some amazing sculptures built into the structure of the building, which you can gaze at for hours, trying to pick out the characters. Another fabulous piece of architecture is La Pedrera, this building has been built with wavy bricks, bright colours and imaginative balcony structures. Both of these are defiantly worth a visit, because the work that has gone into the design and structure of these buildings is unbelievable.
If you’re looking for some more culture based attractions on your visit to Barcelona then make a visit to the Museum Picasso. This museum houses nearly 4,000 pieces of Picasso’s work from Harlequin to Blanquita Suarez as well as providing you with the history behind them. The museum is open Tuesday to Sundays from 10am – 8pm and admission costs around 9 Euros per person.
One of the best things to do in Barcelona at night is to visit the Magic Fountain of Montjuic. These fountains provide a spectacular show of colour, shapes and light that will keep you in awe for the entire length of the show. The Magic Fountain of Montjuic is free to visit and the shows are on regularly every weekend.
