Barcelona is the second most important city in Spain, after Madrid and is the capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia, 97% of its population speaks Spanish, however 60% also speaks Catalan. Barcelona has a set of things that make it a charming destination if you visit Spain, either as a single destination or as part of a European travel itinerary, I recommend you to visit Barcelona in at least 3 days.
Personally, I consider that Barcelona is not exactly a city that you can visit in a day, its sights are distributed throughout the city, which makes it take longer to get to know it and that for some tourist attractions you have to take some kind of transport to get around, since walking can be very exhausting, but also pleasing with the company of Barcelonaescorts. Being located in the Iberian Peninsula, Barcelona not only has a lot of places to visit, but also enjoy different beaches to enjoy especially in the summer season. Take note of the places you can’t miss on your trip to Barcelona in 3 days:
Enjoy Gaudí’s art
The most outstanding of Barcelona are definitely the works of the architect Antonio Gaudí: his unique and creative work, characterized by the very particular use in his mosaics of tiles, glassware and carpentry. It is not surprising that the most visited place in Spain is its masterpiece: the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, both its façade and its interior is something worth seeing at least once in life.
To visit the Sagrada Familia you can get there by subway, getting off at the station with the same name “Sagrada Familia”, the entrance hours are from 9:00 to 20:00, except March and October until 19:00 and from November to February until 18:00. Tickets can be purchased online and is the best option because it handles a limit of people, you do not want to miss the most visited place in Spain in your 3 days in Barcelona.
The entrance ticket has a price of 15€, if you want audioguide are 22€ or if you prefer guided tour 24€, you can also buy for 29€ the ticket that includes audioguide and the entrance to one of the 2 towers; the birth tower or the tower of passion, it is said that it is better the first because in the second view is overshadowed by the scaffolding, because the Holy Family is still The ascent to the towers is made by elevator, but the descent is made by small spiral-shaped stairs. Something that perhaps many people do not know is that there is a free entrance to the Holy Family, in the Mass every Sunday at 9:00 am and the days of precept, there is a limit of people and the entrance is done by the “carrer de la Marina” from 8:30 am.
One of the most exciting cities in the world
Another work of art that is very close to the Sagrada Familia is the Modernista de Sant Pau (Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau), formerly it was the Hospital de la Santa Cruz y San Pablo, although this work is the work of the architect Lluís Domènech is a beautiful modernist ensemble that is worth visiting, the admission costs 13€, but the first Sundays of each month entry is free. Continuing with the works of Gaudí, another representative work of this architect is Casa Milà, also known as “La Pedrera”, was built for the industrialist Pere Milà, to visit it you can get off at the subway station “Diagonal”, since walking from the Sagrada Familia is 20 minutes, the entrance costs 22€ and you can buy it online at the official site.
From Casa Milá you can walk to Casa Batlló in 5 minutes, both buildings are on the “Passeig de Gracia” or in Catalan “Passeig de Gracia”, which is a very famous street with beautiful architecture, full of shops, cafés and very crowded, definitely a walk to visit Barcelona in 3 days. Casa Batlló was remodeled by Gaudí for Josep Batlló, has fine details that do not go unnoticed, especially in its façade which was inspired by a calm sea, the entrance ticket is a bit expensive, 23.5€ general, I recommend buying tickets on the official website to avoid queues, personally Casa Batlló I liked more than Casa Milá, but if you can not visit inside at least visit them on the outside.
