So, if you want to find out all the essential key ingredients of doing Barcelona in a weekend, in this post, we’ll share with you the very best attractions you can’t afford to miss. Follow our top tips for organising your next trip to Barcelona to help you get the most out of your stay.

The Sagrada Familia and Gaudí’s other masterpieces 

If Barcelona’s famous architecture is known for anything, it’s the wide variety of modernist masterpieces that can be found dotted throughout the city, especially those of the city’s most famous son, Antonio Gaudí.

The most iconic building in the city can be none other than the Sagrada Familia, designed by Gaudí in 1882. Visiting and enjoying a tour inside the basilica is vital during any visit to Barcelona.

But besides the Sagrada Familia, there’s a whole host of other great modernist landmarks by Gaudí you can explore. For example, Parque Güell, found to the south of Mount Carmelo and built between 1900 and 1914, is another beautiful location that’s perfect for the little ones to enjoy the great outdoors and explore the world of modern art in a truly original way.

Barcelona in two days: get to know the city’s neighbourhoods

One of the best ways to get to know a city quickly is to get lost in its streets. Besides throwing yourself into the local culture, atmosphere and rhythms of the city, it’s a great opportunity to find hidden corners that you won’t find in the guidebooks but are well worth a few moments of your time.

Talking a walk through the Gothic Quarter is one such plan you can’t afford to miss on a two-day trip to Barcelona. Here, you’ll be able to see the Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia Cathedral – more commonly known as Barcelona Cathedral –, Plaza del Rey, Plaza de Sant Jaume, the City Hall and Puente del Obispo bridge, as well as Plaza Real, among plenty of others. What’s more, you’ll stumble upon the Gothic Quarter just off La Rambla, the most famous street in town that attracts plenty of tourists day after day.
