See Barcelona in Just 3 Days

By | 30 October, 2018 | 0 comments

Barcelona has so many exciting tourist attractions and such a vibrant cultural scene that it can sometimes feel almost impossible to come up with the perfect itinerary for seeing and doing everything you want in the city – at least without it being far too long! So many historical buildings have to be visited, all the cultural attractions have to be ticked off the list and a whole host of the Spain’s very best restaurants need to be tried, with the best tapas restaurants and best museums in Barcelona just some of the things high on everyone’s itinerary. And not forgetting Barcelona at night, where you can also discover the best nightspots in Catalonia’s capital city. Your itinerary will, of course, depend on your personal tastes, but in this post, we’d like to present our itinerary to see the best of Barcelona in just 3 days without rushing, but without dawdling, either!

Semana Santa en Barcelona

Day One

To start your trip, nothing could be better than heading down Barcelona’s main thoroughfare, Las Ramblas. Beyond taking in some of the most breath-taking architecture in the city, such as the Gran Teatro del Liceo and the Mercado de la Boquería, you’ll be able to see all the fascinating faces of life in the city, taking in the five unique zones that make up the district of Las Ramblas.

The afternoon of your first day might be a good opportunity to lose yourself in the labyrinth of the Gothic Quarter and see Barcelona Cathedral just off Plaza San Felipe Neri, before continuing on to Plaza Sant Jaume where you can see the headquarters of Barcelona’s City Hall and Generalitat. Shopping fans will also find plenty of treasures here, with all the most unique and cosmopolitan stores in Barcelona.

Day Two

Seeing all the works of Gaudí scattered throughout Barcelona can take as long or a short as you like. You can delight in each and every detail, colour and shape created by the Reus-born architect, a true pleasure for any visitor, or simply focus on some of the classics. To start your second day, it’s a great idea to head down to the Sagrada Familia, Gaudí’s most famous unfinished dream. To avoid any unwelcome hiccups, make sure to book your ticket in advance so as not to waste time queuing, and you can even pay for a guided tour to really appreciate Gaudí’s magical temple of colour.

At around midday, we recommend you visit Paseo de Gracia to discover all the magnificent treasures found on this street, including Casa Batlló and Casa Milà. Pashttps://www.hcchotels.com/blog/la-sinfonia-de-colores-de-la-sagrada-familia/eo de Gracia houses some of the most significant architectural works of Catalan modernism.

To end your day exploring Gaudí’s Barcelona, you can’t miss out on a visit to Parque Güell, an urban park in the heart of the city that is particularly fun for children.

Day Three

To start your third and final day in the city, we’ve saved the most picturesque neighbourhood in Barcelona, the Born District for last. Its streets, besides housing some truly spectacular gems, such as the Basílica de Santa María del Mar, the Palacio de la Música Catalana and the Mercado de Santa Caterina, you can quite easily lose yourself in this maze of enchanting charms off the beaten track. Another option, for those who prefer to explore nature and the stunning local scenery, is Tibidabo, where you can cast your eye over some of the best views in the city and explore Spain’s oldest amusement park.

As the culmination of your trip, nothing could be better than seeing the biggest mountain in the city, the magical mountain of Montjüic, where you can get up close and personal to two of the events that most influenced the city, discovering buildings of huge importance to the people of Barcelona. We recommend you synchronise the end of your visit with one of theMontjüic fountain’s regular displays, where you can enjoy a spectacular show of light, music and colour.

These plans can naturally be altered, depending on your personal interests and tastes, but we’ve made sure to include all the most famous sights and sounds the city has to offer, which you should try to catch if you have three days to spend here in the great city of Barcelona.
