1. The Fun
Swim in the Mediterranean Sea during the day and go to Icebarelona at night. This town has it all. It’s actually #TeamCurtsy’s favorite Eurotrip stop.
2. The Water
If you’re into sailing and stuff. Meet someone with a boat or take the touristy cruise, but either way, get on a boat.
3. The Nature
The city life is the life for us, but there are so many amazing nature spots just a bus ride away. Don’t be afraid to ask the locals.
4. The Futbol
We know Barcelona will never be able to replace Messi, but hey, we are still sporting the jerseys. Plan your trip early and go catch a game.
5. The Candy
If you’ve got a sweet tooth (which we do) this is your town. Get as much dessert as you want. Don’t be scared, channel your inner Anthony Bourdain by buying from some street vendors.
6. The Fish Burgers
Go try that Mediterranean seafood. We’ve got just the place for you- Makamaka Burgers right on Barceloneta Beach.
7. The Fruit
The fruit and markets in Barcelona are unreal. This picture doesn’t even do it justice. Be sure to go to La Boqueria Market to stock up before you hit the beach.
8. The Architecture
Barcelona is the capital of Modernism. We recommend seeing the famous landmarks designed by Gaudi: Sagrada Familia, La Pedrea, Casa Batllo, and Park Guell.
9. Park Guell
We guarantee you’ve never seen a park like this. Get lost in the beautiful mosaics of Park Guell- just be sure to get a ticket in advance.
10. Casa de Gaudi
This treasure is in the middle of Barcelona’s busy streets. It’s even more impressive in person.
I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list”
