Travel to Barcelona. The most interesting places

Posted by Bcon on December 14th, 2020

When looking to escape the routine, many travelers will suggest Spain. Ongoing fiestas and festivals will encourage you to immerse yourself in a world of dreams that seem far from reality. But perhaps others are liberated by the discovery of new areas. In this article, we will talk not so much about Spain broadly, but about Barcelona.

An incredible fact

I would like to start this article with a very interesting fact about Spain itself. Ordering goods from this country may seem expensive to someone, but Ecoparcel has an offer for you. Take a look at the prices for parcel delivery to Spain and send the desired goods!


Barcelona is famous for its impressive architectural buildings. Here are some for you:

Sagrada Família - By far one of the most popular landmarks in Barcelona, this famously unfinished cathedral is one of the most unique buildings in the world – particularly so as it’s one of the only buildings that have a foot both in the past and the future.

The past – future connection allows it possible to both appreciate it’s old history and anticipate it’s future glory.

Barcelona Cathedral - Whenever the more generic title Barcelona Cathedral is referred to, people’s mind goes to Sagrada Família, right? Well, it’s not in fact a cathedral in itselfю
This cathedral is fully titled The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia is actually much older and more established than Sagrada Família and well worth seeing in Barcelona.
Dating as far back as the 13th century, this Cathedral is steeped in rich history and is one of the most impressive sites to see in Barcelona.

Palau Güell - This mansion was built by Gaudi for wealthy businessman Eusebi Güell and although this building is not instantly recognisable as a work by Gaudi, it’s sheer detail and history make it a must-visit.

Activities in Barcelona

To get to know Barcelona it is worth visiting its various corners:

  • Explore the Gothic Quarter - Barcelona's most picturesque neighbourhood is the Gothic Quarter. The narrow, cobbled streets and medieval buildings make exploring fun, and the mix of shops and restaurants in the public squares means you can spend all day here and not get bored.
    Relax on Barceloneta Beach - If you want to spend a few hours enjoying the Mediterranean coastline, Barceloneta Beach is probably the most popular of the handful of beaches next to the city. You can walk here in around 20 minutes from Las Ramblas or take the metro to Barceloneta station.

  • Snack at Mercat de la Boqueria - This bustling food market on Barcelona's Las Ramblas is the largest and most popular in the city. You can shop for a dizzying variety of fresh fruits and dry goods, but the main reason to come here is to sample the rows of small tapas bars. It's best to come hungry and feast on local dishes like battered baby squid, garlic prawns, cheeses, and cured meats. We always tend to wash this down with a glass of cava sangria.

In conclusion,

In this article we have discussed interesting places in Barcelona. We wish you a beautiful trip and excitement!
