At the end of August I visited Barcelona with my friend- and I was in shock by how beautiful the city is- like I knew it had interesting sights but I didn’t quite expect there to be such intricately designed buildings and so much nature.
Barcelona was filled with things to see. It’s definitely an arty city- especially due to its architecture and with Gaudi and Picasso both being from there.
My highlights were visiting Park Guell (where house is) and the Sagrada familia.
Now for the interesting part… food!
We mostly ate tapas as that was the most cultural and cheapest option.
I think our favourites were calamari, prawns in garlic and of course patatas bravas (if you’ve never heard of these, its basically roast potatoes with a combination of creamy and spicy sauces).
In terms of restaurants I would definately recommend:
- La Pepita- for the best tapas we ate in barcelona
- Attic- Roof top view and fancy food
- Los Cachitos- Cheap but good quality tapas
- Ikibana- For great quality sushi and fusion food
Let me just off by saying barcelona make amazing mojitos- I literally think I had at least 2 a day (+ sangria!).
I’d say cafe Alsur did the best mojitos by far!
Also on the terrace of the 1896 hotel was a beautiful place to have drinks as were even beds to drink our cocktails on!
Hope you guys enjoyed this travel post!
