Barcelona is a city with a large number of touristic objectives. The trip took about 2 days. We arrived Friday evening and we left Sunday evening. I can say it was an unforgettable small vacation. A accomplish to visit only the minimum from what we proposed because of the minimum amount of time.

Catalunya Plaza (Plaça de Catalunya) vezi pe harta
We started to see Barcelona from the large and beautiful Catalunya Plaza.
A very large street with a lot of trees where you can walk and shop several stuffs, souvenirs, sweets etc.
A little bazaar full with all kind of sweets and fruits for all tastes. It is less probable to not find something that you like.
Maritime Museum (Maritime Museum) vezi pe harta
We didn't entered inside (someone told me that it isn't so interesting, but I don't know for sure). Here you can see a few ships. Outside it is a minisub. Do not forget to watch through its windows. I won't tell you what you can see to not spoil the surprise.
Edifici Gas Natural (Torre Mare Nostrum) vezi pe harta
A beautiful building surrounded by a few palms.
Barcelona Port (Port de Barcelona) vezi pe harta
A dreamy thing. I'll come back for sure in this wonderful place. For architecture buildings lovers, you can see from here the Vela Hotel. On the left side we can see numerous ships and yachts. If you cross the bridge you'll find the Barcelona Aquarium.
Barcelona Aquarium (L’Aquàrium de Barcelona) vezi pe harta
I recommend it to you from my deep soul. It deserve the last penny, especially you should pass through glass tunnels where you can admire fishes and sharks from the bottom.
Santa Maria del Mar Church (Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar) vezi pe harta
Santa Maria del Mar Church can be found on the streets from approach of Barcelona harbour. Beautiful, but to little space around it for its size.
Chocolate Museum (Museu De La Xocolata) vezi pe harta
Personally - a big disappointment. Some chocolate shapes and a small room and that's it.
Arch of Triumph (Arco de Triunfo de Barcelona) vezi pe harta
The street is wonderful, many people, huge soap balloons, amazing landscape. We catch a small show of a girl with a circle. The arch it is located in the pedestrian area and you can reach it directly not being necessary to avoid cars.
I wasn't too impressed. I didn't enter inside neither.
I was shocked. A story tell like. You need to see it live because the pictures won't describe the beauty of this temple. Gaudi was indeed an astonishing architect. It is a bind from a beautiful church and something taken from a fairy tale. Unfortunately is still not finished and you can see the cranes.
A weekend walk park. You can see a large landscape of the city from here.
A building that must be seen at night because of its colourful lights. We were there only in daylight time.
We visited only the outside. Like Sagrada, a totally different architectural. You are a little bit shocked because it looks totally different from the rest of the surrounding buildings.
Casa Batlló & La Manzana de la Discordia vezi pe harta
Batlló House, another Gaudi opera, astonishing of course. La Manzana de la Discordia wasn't so impressive.
A different experience. It's like a tram that is going up and down on a very long hill. There are two vehicles and are trailed by some heavy stil cables. I don't know if they have personal trailed in the same time or only those cable. One goes down and in the mean time another one goes up. It arrives at Tibidabo Park in top and in the city in the bottom. You can reach the funicular by the buss and in this case you can use the city pass or with a tram but here you need to buy a ticket.
Attraction Park Tibidabo (Parc de atracciones Tibidabo) vezi pe harta
In tibidabo park we spent a few hours because is big. We have fun with montagne-russe and a peace of log that slips with water in a slide - you won't escape without being wet :) .
Binds the city from metro and the Montjuic Castle. It takes some time until you reach the top.
