    You plan on going to all of those? I live in fricking Barcelona and I’ve not been to even half.

    a lot of these places are cool to visit and sit outside of to enjoy a beer whilst appreciating the architecture, but paying money to go in is fairly underwhelming. You’d probably visit a handful and decide not to do the rest.

    +1 for Ciutadella park though, one of my favourite spots in the city

      Not OP anon, but I'm going there in November.
      Only a few days, so I need to be picky. I figure there's some stuff you kind of get obligated to see like the cathedral and La Sagrada Familia, but anything else to make sure not to miss?

        The list in OP is what my sister recomended, since she went to Spain. I do want other poeples input.

        That said, she said Sagrada Familia is meh. And actually kinda ugly. Which I tend to agree.

          Yeah, personally I figured Sagrada would be something I'd be happy going past on the way somewhere else, snapping a photo and moving on.

      How's the rent? Any signs of it going down? Fricking refugees made everything go breasts up.

        Rent is expensive, but not anything massively different to any other major European city.

        Catalans are notorious crybabies. I love this city and I can’t think of anywhere better, but it’s almost instilled in Catalan nature to be obsessed with the idea of being hard done by and victimised. They seem to think that Barcelona is the only place on earth that struggles with cost of living, and are under this strange fricking delusion that the rest of Europe is insanely wealthy where everything is cheap. It’s actually insane.

        I’ve had conversations with Catalans that go like this.

        Them:
        >Barcelona is so expensive!!! We can barely afford rent with tourists and expats who are pricing us out. It’s disgusting, we’re all struggling so badly!

        Me:
        >Actually I’m from the UK and things are very similar. Average wages aren’t much more and rent is very expensive if you actually want to live in any big city and not the outskirts.

        Them:
        >AKHTUALLY I KNOW PEOPLE THAT HAVE MOVED TO THE UK AND OWN 3 PROPERTIES AND 4 CARS AND MAKE 400K A YEAR!!!!!

          I know it's not anything different to any other major European city, because the fricking ukrainians got there too. Even in fricking Romania, the rent of the place where I used to live went from 370 euros to fricking 6-700. 6-700 is what I expected to pay for Portugal / Spain, not fricking Romania.

    I'm thinking of going for a week and rather than go on tours on anything, just walk around the city.

    I prefer to absorb the local architecture / culture /life more than visiting crowded tourist spots.

    Anything interesting you'd recomend outside the city?

      You mean like day trips? Girona and Tarragona can both be easily reached on the train and are worth a visit. There's also Figueres if you like Dali, though it's a bit further away

    >La rambla
    Tourist trap hellhole, can skip entirely and replace with a walk through the gothic quarter. If you must go for the photo op, walk down to La Boqueria and have breakfast at El Quim de la Boqueria (the special is eggs and squid).
    >gaudi house museum
    its in the park but nothing too special
    >sagrada familia
    prebook the tickets to go see it and skip the lines, grab lunch at Puertecillo Sagrada Familia before you go (fresh seafood market + kitchen)
    >aquarium
    If you've been to one you've been to them all, can skip this tbh
    >museums
    pick your favorites but MNAC is a must imo, they also do the magic fountain show at night just outside of it for free

    If you want a real hole in the wall in el Raval, grab dinner at Miño, microscopic entrance, small restaurant behind a thin bar, real good shit.

    If you don't want to be overcrowded the whole time, take the transit to one of the smaller cities like Tarragona or Girona and enjoy the comfier side of Catalunya.
    Both also have great hiking trails nearby if you're into that. Not sure about escorts but if that's your priority you're better off going to Zaragoza.

      +1 for Girona. Really comfy small city. I really want to go back and rent bike and ride down to the ocean on that bike route

        I'm in Girona now, and it's amazing.
        Do recommend, but probably only book a day. It's not massive.

    I'm visiting barcelona right now.

    Just as a heads up, spaniards are dicks and ill mannered, they're kinda stupid as well

    If you build a solid itinerary, you can buy a pass to save on tickets.

    Watch your pockets at rambla and subway, around blacks never relax.

      That's just Catalonians.

        No, it's spaniards. First spaniard on my trip, the flight attendant? Complete dick. First spaniard I see upon landing at Madrid? A troony making a scene over a woman taking a picture of the customs office. Information kiosk spaniards? Complete fricking dicks. Other flight attendant woman? Dick.

        Rest of catalonia, dumbasses who don't greet back, block sidewalks, rush on bikes and scooters, and smell like armpit wherever you go.

    Why would I buy the 5 day Hola Barcelona Travel Card (€38.20) instead of the T-usual (€20)?
