3 must-see hop-off attractions
Ok, let’s say you can only see three things in Barcelona? Well, if we had to choose, we’d say get on one of our open-top buses and begin by hopping off at Barri Gòtic, the old Gothic Quarter, the centre of the old city. This medieval maze of narrow streets and shady plazas is full of interesting buildings and places to sit and enjoy a coffee. It’s been the centre of the city since the Romans were here and you can still evidence of Roman life here beneath the Gothic Quarter’s Plaça del Rei. Barcelona is the city of Gaudí and our next two recommendations both have Gaudí in common. Hop off at the Sagrada Familia to see one of the most astonishing buildings in the world, the product of an incredibly fertile imagination running riot. Still unfinished after more than 130 years, the Sagrada Familia is one place you just cannot visit Barcelona without seeing. The last stop is Park Güell, another incredible Gaudí creation. Originally conceived as a housing development, it’s now a park which enjoys spectacular views over the city.
Did you know?
One sight that you can’t miss when you’re in Barcelona is the Eiffel Tower. Wait, that’s not right, is it? Well, no, but it could have been as supposedly Eiffel first pitched his tower to Barcelona but the city rejected it. We suppose the Sagrada Familia is pretty good compensation. Did you know that by the time construction is completed, it will have taken longer to build the Sagrada Familia than the Egyptian Pyramids? You might not be able to see the Eiffel Tower, but one thing you can do in Barcelona is go to the beach, but we couldn’t have written that 30 years ago as the beaches in the city are all new and were made with sand transported from further along the coast in time for the 1992 Olympics.
