Barcelona's Top Attractions

By Ladonna Mennoza

Six Things to do in Barcelona

The Spanish city of Barcelona (natives call is Barca,

pronouned "Bah-sa") is a vibrant, large and extremely fun

place to visit. It has countless attractions, from

beautiful buildings to trendy restaurants, museums to

tapas bars. And let's not forget the coolest feature: the

Mediterranean Ocean comes right up the center of the city.

If you're lucky enough to find yourself in Barcelona, be

sure to be the following 6 things into your itinerary:

1. Walk. Unlike some cities, a few days in Barcelona is

likely to energize you rather than leave you drained. This

is because there are as just as many places to relax and

unwind as there are must-see places. Like so many

Mediterranean cities, it is possible to have a fantastic

stay in Barca just by taking a walk - there are so many

things to stop and admire.

2. Make sure to look at the gorgeous buildings designed

by famous Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi. His work is

colorful, fanciful and sure to lift your mood. Your first

stop should be Sagrada Familia, the stunning cathedral

that's been under construction since Gaudi was alive.

Gaudi was a devout Catholic, and this amazing structure

shows his passion for his religious beliefs. You can also

take a look at the private apartments and houses the

architect built all over the city. One striking example is

Casa Mila, with a blue-green serpentine outer wall that

curves like a watery wave. Travel up to the roof, where

you'll find chimney stacks shaped like statues.

3. If you like Gaudi's buildings, be sure to stop by the

Park Guell, also designed by this talented architect in

the early 20th century. It will surely leave a lasting

impression. The park is beloved by natives and tourists

alike, who flock to see the colorful curving benches and

whismical sculptures studded with mosaic tiles. Watch the

youngsters playing football while their parents sit

nearby enjoying a cup of coffee. If you want to get away

from the crowds, pathways lead to more private areas of

the park.

4. Ramble along La Rambla, the long stretch of street

that runs from the water's edge to the old portion of the

city. The street once carried water inland, but it's now

an entertainment mecca, full of storefronts, theaters,

bars and restaurants. It's also home to a covered food-

hall where you can stock up on tasty treats, from cheese

to ham to nuts to fruits and veggies.

5. Indulge your artistic side. Stop in at the Musee

Picasso, a cozy museum devoted solely to the Spanish

artist Pablo Picasso. Here you'll find many fine pieces

of ceramic artwork, childhood sketches, mature works

and information on the artist's life. The museum is

full of fascinating and beautiful images, but it's small

enough to explore over the course of an afternoon.

6. Sports buffs should run on over to Camp Nou, a

stadium where some of Europe's most exciting soccer

matches have been held. Try and catch a game, or if

you're there on an off-day explore the soccer museum

or take a guided tour of the facilities. As you can

see, there really is something for everyone in Barca!
