Barcelona! There are so many things to do in Barcelona. Check out my video for some suggestions of things to do in Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona can be very touristy, so I’ll show you some things to do in Barcelona that are hidden gems instead. Hopefully this travel vlog can help you decide what to do in Barcelona, and avoid some of the tourist traps!

In this Barcelona travel guide, I’ll show you my suggestions for things to do in Barcelona—-

Gothic Quarter, Barcelona

Parc de la Ciutadella
Passeig de Picasso, 21, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

One of Barcelona’s oldest parks, parc de la Ciutadella is a great thing to do in Barcelona if you like nature. The park is 70 acres large. There are lots of fountains, benches, flowers, and even the Barcelona zoo. This Barcelona park is also home to many green parrots, who you can spot throughout the park and throughout Barcelona, Spain.

Bo de B
Carrer de la Fusteria, 14, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Near the Barcelona harbor, bo de b is the perfect spot for lunch in Barcelona. You’ll have to go early though to avoid the lines. But their fresh and healthy sandwiches are worth the wait- some say they are the best sandwiches in Barcelona.

el Jardí
Carrer de l’Hospital, 56, Barcelona, Spain
Tucked away in a courtyard of an old hospital, el jardi is a relaxing place for a meal or a drink. It’s outdoor garden setting is a nice hangout spot, with mostly locals. This Barcelona restaurant and bar is a great place to get away from the tourists and crowds in Barcelona, and relax and this hidden gem in Barcelona!

Carrer del Carme, 3, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
28,, Carrer de les Ramelleres, 26, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Nearby La Rambla, a popular place for tourists to stroll in Barcelona, is Chok, the chocolate kitchen. This chocolate kitchen has all sorts of tasty creations, and is a chocolate lover’s paradise. Get some dessert here, and save room for some Barcelona tapas later!

Hope you enjoy your travels to Barcelona, Spain!

  7. Great travel tips, it's great to get off the tourist trail in a city so you can really capture the true feel of a place. I think I should leave Chök until the end though otherwise I might not get to see anything else and that would definitely be a shame.
