Planning a trip to the capital of Catalonia? Read on for my highlights from a quick break in the Spanish city.
1. Barceló Raval Hotel
Looking for a hotel in the Gothic Quarter and located parallel to La Rambla? Barceló Raval is a great option and boosts a 360 degree rooftop. Opt for a room with a view and you won’t be disappointed.

2. 100 Montaditos
Looking for a change from Pinchos and Tapas? Head to 100 Montaditos and you won’t regret it. The menu includes 100 different mini baguette options and most are only 1 euro, we spent 14 euros in total and were absolutely stuffed.
3. La Barceloneta
Heading out? Head to La Barceloneta where there a plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs to choose from. If there is a group of you I’d recommend asking for table options at the clubs, we got a VIP table for 250 Euros between 5 of us, considering you’d pay an entry fee and 1 beer costs 10 euros this was a great option.
4. Street Markets
Take a walk up La Rambla and halfway up on the left you’ll find La Boqueria Mercat, full of food stalls from fresh fruit smoothies to pick n mix. There’s something for everyone!
5. Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
I love a good Hop-On Hop-Off tour as it’s a great way to get around a city. I’d recommend the Barcelona Bus Turistic tour and make sure to stop of at the Sagrada Família and Park Güell.
