Vamos a Barcelona

Hello everybody !!!

It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve been to Barcelona but I’ve been a bit busy and I had to sort my photos of my trip ๐Ÿ™‚

I finally made it and I can now share with you.

So, some friends from France and I decided to go to Barcelona for a long weekend we had (because it was 1st of may on the monday, day off in France and Spain). We planned to meet directly in Barcelona and stay in an Airbnb (as always). I already been in Barcelona but it was years ago and I didn’t really remember it. And also the city is not far from France.

  • Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of the province of Catalonia and the second biggest city in Spain. Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination. Particularly renowned are the architectural works of Antoni Gaudรญ, which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The headquarters of the Union for the Mediterranean is located in Barcelona. The city is known for hosting the 1992 Summer Olympics as well as world-class conferences and expositions and also many international sport tournaments.

We stay in a really great Airbnb, the person was really nice and give us so many advice on what to see, how to go, etc. Also makes us confortable, even buying coffee, biscuits and other stuff for our stay. The apartment is very well located, in Poble Sec just down Montjuic.ย โ†’Here is the Airbnbโ†

I arrived the friday because my plane was cheaper on Friday and my friends arrived Saturday. On friday I just went around the apartment, like Placa de Espanya, Montjuic, etc.

I have a lot more photos but I can’t post everything eheh.

We also went to 2 very nice places to eat:

  • Bodega Biarritz
  • Paisano Cafรฉ

I really recommend those places they are really good ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you liked my post ! I have to say that I’m a bit mixed feeling about Barcelona because I find the city cool and nice but there is too much tourists in some places. And for example I was kind of disappointed by The Rambles because at the end there is nothing special to see … Barcelona is nice but I really prefer Madrid, I think there is more things to see in Madrid. Anyway I liked Barcelona but I was expected more moreover the city and the places to visit like Casa Batllo are very expensive ! That’s a major bad point.

My next post will probably be about Madrid cause my stay there is about to end in one week. I’m going back to France … But I have a new destination on the go ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay tuned !

XxXx
