ParK Guell

A beautiful park full of color, bright, vivid tiles integrated in the unique architecture, rich greenery, and interesting landscape. 


Opened in the 1930s and was fully operational until 2009. The hospital is a World Heritage site by UNESCO for its unique architectural design and artistic beauty.

arc de Triomf

One of the city's iconic landmark. I love the red brick and makes it standout.  This was originally designed as the main entry into the 1888 Barcelona Universal Exposition.

parc de la ciutadella

This 74-acre park is Barcelona's green space. It's a place you come to relax, go for long walks, enjoy picnics, and take boat rides on the lake.

This former citadel has plenty of sights to see.  You'll find the Barcelona zoo, museums and monuments, and countless sculptures.

CATEDRAL DE BARCELONA (Barcelona Cathedral)

The enormous Gothic Barcelona Cathedral is the center of attention in the Gothic Quarter (historic old town).


This famous walkway that connects 2 buildings is one of the most Instagrammable bridge!  Get here early to avoid the crowd.


This historic building still has the bomb scars on the facade as a result of the Spanish Civil War.

palau de la musica catalana

This concert hall is known for its one-of-a-kind and unique style, with an interior known for its eye-catching design.  They have guided tours available.

mercado de la boqueria

This market has an amazing variety of fruit, vegetables, meats, and countless Spanish delicacies. This is a must to see the best of Barcelona's gastronomy.

Some of the stands offer tasty treats on their daily menus with fresh meat, vegetables, and fruits.  It's definitely a foodie's heaven!


This is probably one of my favorite retreats from the hustle and bustle of the city!  Enjoy a  scenic drive up this hilltop, which has incredible views and beautiful gardens.


Once an old Jewish cemetery, Montjuïc is more than 200 meters above the Mediterranean sea. Plenty of places to see: an old fortress, museums, Magic Fountain, and '92 Olympic Stadium.
