Recommended Restaurants:

Cal Pep(Plaça de les Olles, 8)
      Tapas are little appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine. A true institution in Barcelona: the occasion to meet friends at any hour of the day! Cap Pep is a very respected and authentic tapas restaurant located on tiny Plaza de les Olles in Born area of Barcelona. It is equally popular with visitors and locals alike thanks to owner Pep himself, who oversees the serving of delicious tapas and a menu of seafood dishes.

La Boqueria food market (Les Rambles, 91)
      About two thirds of the way up the Ramblas, on the left, you will see one of Europe's largest and most famous food markets. This is a place where you can spend hours inside and have any meal during the day – from fresh juices, tapas, fish and meat to sweets bars and bakeries. Wonderful place for the food lovers.

Los Caracoles (c/ escudellers, 14)
      Los Caracoles which means "The Snails" is a popular restaurant in Barcelona that has to a large degree been "discovered" by the tourists. You can spot the restaurant right away as it has a spit grill in the main entrance window roasting chickens and other meats. The restaurant was named after its specialty however if you don't find this type of food to your tasting don't worry as they offer a wide variety of seafoods and roasted meat dishes with accompanying side dishes and salads.

Places to see:

The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc
      The magic fountain is a spectacular display of colors, lights, motion, music and water acrobatics - if you mix these elements together in just the right combinations, you end up with pure magic! The magic fountain is a "must see" when you come to Barcelona and highly recommended but only at night!!! Up on the hill you will also find the museum of national art of Catalunia which is another nice place to visit.

Barcelona Aquarium
      Diving with sharks, amazing fish and great experience especially with children but not only! This is the most important marine leisure and education center in the Mediterranean: 35 tanks, 11,000 animals and 450 different species, an underwater tunnel of 80 meters and 6 million liters of water. The immense Oceanarium, the only one in Europe, turns this center into a unique, reference leisure show that has already been visited by more than 14 million people.

Flamenco show
      Flamenco is traditional for the South of Spain in the Andalusia region however Barcelona also has excellent flamenco Tablaos as they are known. Barcelona is also a home to one of the greatest flamenco dancers of all time Carmen Amaya, after which this Tablao is named. You will experience the passion and music of traditional Spanish flamenco dance, an experience that will give you goose bumps all over.

Places to relax:

Barceloneta beach
      one of the greatest things about Barcelona is that she combines urban vacation together with beaches and sun. The Barecloneta beach is one of the most famous and busy beaches in Barcelona and is the closest one to Barcelona city center. Barceloneta has many fabulous sea food restaurants serving fresh catches of the day, on-the-beach alcohol and nice bars.

Picnicking in Ciutadella Park
      Pack a picnic and head to Ciutadella Park, between the old town and the Olympic port. Enjoy the Barcelona sunshine on the grassy verges, explore the exotic gardens or rent a boat on the lake, whatever you do – it is a great place to relax!

Collserola
      Located on a mountain range just a short ride from the city center, this huge natural forest attracts both locals and travelers. The paths are often filled with joggers and cyclists, particularly on weekends. It’s also a top destination for nature-lovers and anyone wishing to enjoy great views of Barcelona. Moreover, here you’ll have the chance to discover the flora and fauna of a genuine Mediterranean forest. If you’re lucky, you might even see a wild boar…

Neighborhoods:

Gràcia Barrio
      The neighborhood of Gràcia is just one stop up from the top of Passeig de Gràcia but it feels like a whole different world. The area is popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd; it also has a high ethnic population and the highest concentration of foreign restaurants in Barcelona. However despite the trendy nature of Gràcia it is also a traditional barrio with a large elderly population which makes for an amusing and odd mix - and entertaining people-watching.

Gothic Quarter
      This is the very oldest part of Barcelona. It has the ruins of an ancient Roman wall and the medieval Jewish quarter. You’ll find the Cathedral as well as Plaça Sant Jaume with City Hall and Plaça Reial.

El Born/La Ribera/Sant Pere
      There is a confusing mess of names for this neighborhood; the areas referred to overlap one another, or are different names for the same area. But for our purposes, we’re talking about the neighborhood on the other side of via Laietana – the main artery that basically cuts the old city in half — from the Barri Gòtic. El Born (more or less the lower part of the neighborhood) is now a very trendy area with lots of restaurants, bars, and boutiques. The upper part of the area is a little more traditional and less touristy. This area is home to the Picasso museum, and is close to the Arc de Triomf and the lovely Parc de la Ciutadella. There are more accommodations here than in the Barri Gòtic, but they’re still limited simply due to space constrictions.
