La pedrera

We ha

According to the vast majority of Spain and Barcelona travel guides, Barcelona is by far one of the one of the nicest cities to visit in the country. Elegant Barcelona hotels, world-class Barcelona restaurants, and activities that can only be found in Barcelona are just a few things that make this beautiful city unique. Barcelona museums, theatres, and art galleries are nothing short of spectacular and the city also has an impressive nightlife scene. Besides this, this art and design center has hundreds of interesting sights to offer to its visitors.
The best place to watch people go by, to stroll or simply relax, is Las Ramblas, a pedestrian street with dozens of cozy Barcelona restaurants and outdoor cafes. Here, you wil find flower stands, book kiosks, and small market stalls where birds and small animals are sold. You’ll also find an endlessly fascinating flowing receptacle of pageant-jugglers, singers, dancers, puppeteers, sidewalk artists, living statues, and assorted oddballs on parade. Touring Las Ramblas is a Barcelona activity that is well deserving of a top spot in any Barcelona travel guide.
Nearby is Placa Real with plenty of bars and Barcelona restaurants, and Palau Guell, built by the Catalan architectural genius Antoni Gaudí in his undulating art-nouveau style. While engaging in Barcelona activities like strolling Las Ramblas and Placa Real, be very aware of pickpockets, as they are plentiful in heavily populated tourist areas.
After having seen these sights, stroll the narrow winding streets of the Barri Gotic --a medieval Gothic quarter full of interesting tapas bars and cafes. Check out Picasso’s old hangout, Els Quatre Gats, which has been renovated, but it hasn't lost its bohemian charm. Or head for the old Barceloneta section on the waterfront. This working-class area, which was always slightly rundown and scruffy-looking, is now packed with paella restaurants. The new beach area, which runs from Barceloneta to the Olympic village, is much cleaner than the old beach area. Although some people believe that it has been cleaned up considerably, it might be a wise idea to stay out of the water. Fortunately, the beach itself is already a feast for the eyes (and ears), with its huge and roaring waves.

Catalans are known for their independent spirit and their sense of humor. Salvador Dali was a Catalan (and unfortunately for Catalans, he was also a Fascist and supporter of General Franco's regime) and his bizarre sense of humor is just one example of the regions endearing weirdness. Language is a BIG problem for the English-speaking in Barcelona and also in areas around the city. There are no signboards in English and if you do not speak Spanish (or preferably Catalan), you are better off with a phrase book to guide you around. Even in the majority of Barcelona hotels they do not speak English. It comes as a surprise because the vast majority of tourists are English and tourism is a big contributor to Barcelona's economy.

Spring is the best time to visit Barcelona, as you can expect a temperature of around around 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20C). During summer, it can get very hot and humid, about 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30C), and extremely crowded, due to the large number of tourists and numerous cultural events taking place in September. Barcelona can be as expensive as you want it to be. Barcelona is relatively rich, so prices are much higher than places elsewhere in Spain. Still, Barcelona restaurants are relatively cheap -- at lunch time you can find a two course meal and desert for $10-$13US (7-9€), and for an average Barcelona hotel, three meals and a night out, count on it costing some $225 US (145 Euro) for two persons.

Top Things to See and Do in Barcelona

Architecture: if you love architecture, Barcelona is the city indeed.

Roman period: Roman walls, 4 remaining columns of the Temple at Centre excursionista, Museu d´historia de la ciutat (walk underground through the roman past).

Gothic period: Santa Maria del Mar (best gothic church), Plaça del Rei, Saló del Tinell, Drassanes, Catedral, Santa Maria del Pi, Llotja de Barcelona, Hospital de la Santa Creu, streets within barri gotic (gothic ward).

Pre-modernist and Modernist period: Gaudí's main works: Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà, Parc Güell, Palau Güell, Casa Vicens. Other modernist architects' masterpieces: Palau de la Musica Catalana, Hospital de Sant Pau, Casa Ametller, Casa de les Punxes, Arc de Triompf i Parc de la Ciutadella, Plaça Reial, Passeig de Gracia. Some of those were included in the World Heritage list.

Modern Period: Pabelló d´Alemanya (German Pabilion 28 universal expo, a masterpiece of the modern arquitecture designed by Mies Van der Rohe), Pabelló de la republica (GATPAC), Escola Tecnica Superior d´Arquitectura (Coderech), Macba (museum art contemporani designed by Richard Meyer), Anella Olimpica (olimpic area, Isozaki, Correa, Calatrava...), Torre Agbar (the new symbol in town by Jean Nouvel), Mercat de Santa Caterina (Miralles-Tagliube), Tibidabo´s comunication tower (Norman Foster), Forum´s Convention Center (Herzog & de Meuron).

Art and Museums

Museu Nacional d´Art de Catalunya (MNAC) with the best romanic paintings in the world. This museum preserves the wall frescos of a great part of the romanic churches in Pirineos.

Museu Picasso: The museum is located in a medieval palace on Montcada Street, 15-23 in the Gothic area. Once inside you will discover a magnificent compilation of early Picasso paintings. Both oils and drawings displayed in this perminent collection are representative of the artist's formative years as well as later in his illustrious career. The entire collection of over 3,500 works include 24 masterpieces such as "Man in a Baret", "The Divan", "Margot or the Period of Waiting", and "Blanquita Suarez" just to name a few. Museu Picasso is a must-see in Barcelona.

Fundació Miró: Located in a good modern building from Sert, you´ll find a wide sample of Joan Miró works.

Others: Centre d´art Santa Monica, Fundació Tapies, Centre de Cultura Contemporanea.

Best Walks

Barcelona´s seashore walk: Departing from the Forum of las Culturas area, walk along Passeig Maritim, cross the Vila Olimpica, continue to la Barceloneta, follow el moll de la Fusta to Colon monument. Best moments are at sunrise or at sunset. (3-4 km)

Las Ramblas: From Plaça Catalunya, walk down to Colon, sit at a café and just watch the people go by. (500 m)

Barri Gotic: Just keep your maps and guidebooks away, and lose yourself within the lovely old streets of el barri gotic. Finish your walk taking a beer at la Plaça Reial (one of the nicest). (3-5-8 km, walk as long as you can)

El Raval: Submerge yourself in our little Karachi, just on the opposite side of las Ramblas. Start at el Mercat de la Boqueria (traditional market), and lose yourself on the decadent streets of el raval, try some shawarma, or some dhal in any Panjabi restaurant, and check how cosmopolitan is Barcelona (not so London or Amsterdam...but getting close). Take care about pickpocketing.

Passeig de Gracia to Gracia: From Plaça Catalunya walk up Passeig de Gracia (the most elegant street in town with the most expensive shops) to the bohemian neigborhood of Gracia. Just take a walk into the neigborhood and take a beer in any plaça. (Plaça Rius i Taulet, Plaça Diamant...)

Best City Views

From Montjuic: Just go up to Palau Nacional (MNaC) at Montjuic Mountain and enjoy the sunset over the city. If you are lucky (try on weekends), after the sunset you´ll see the Magic Fountain Show.

From Tibidabo: The best views of Barcelona are from el Tibidabo. And old fashioned and decadent Atraction parc (but one of the top 5 in the world according to Lonely Planet), on the top of el Tibidabo. Yes that´s our Corcovado...

From el Parc Güell: If you have not time enough to go to Tibidabo, you can get great views too, from Parc güell.

Nightlife

Plaça Reial area. Take some beers at el Glaciar or el Sidecar, after that try at el Club 13 (until 03.00), and after that head to el Jamboree if you like hip-hop or el Karma if you prefer independent pop rock (until 06.00).

Say for instance, you are in search for an enjoyable night out on the town, the big problem lies in choosing what would be most to your liking from among all that Barcelona has to offer. In a nutshell, Barcelona nights is all about fun, fun, fun, and one can simply go insane just ticking off the choices on how to achieve it in one night. Even the most hedonistic man s standards for pleasure and enjoying the night away will be challenged in this great city!

El Raval is Barcelona's most diverse area with a mixture of cultures and atmospheres. It was much neglected until recently, but it is full of small, hip bars.

El Born and La Ribera, one of the trendiest areas to be in, combine the romanticism of the old city with the newly designed interiors of its numerous bars, clubs and restaurants. This area attracts couples and groups in their 30s looking for sophisticated, relaxing, and intimate bars.

Poblenou area: Take some beers at l´Ovella, and after that try Razzmatazz (one of the best clubs in town). Many popular bands, such as the Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack, Coldplay, Blur, and Oasis all played in this hall during their early tours.

Vila Olimpica area: For nice people, catalans say "ambiente algo mas pijo". Try at Baja club or Catwalk.

Zona Alta area: Take your first beers at La Borsa (imported beers from worlwide), and after that go to a disco or club in the area. The top is Luz de Gas, where you´ll find people up to 50 y/old men trying to met 20y/old girls, and 40 y/old women trying the same with 20 y/old boys. If you want to meet rich socialites, this is the place. For the nicest people, "Ambiente muy pijo".

For gay and lesbian: Try at El coño de mi prima (Eixample) or at Las Torres de Avila (Poble espanyol). Left Eixample is called Gayxample.

Beaches

From Forum to Barceloneta, they all are fine, but always crowded in summer. That's the only standing rule on Barcelona beaches, especially with its sunshiny weather all year round. This is one place where the beaches are teeming with non-stop action especially with the opening of the city to the sea -- a project first undertaken in the 1980s. The redeveloped seafront, from the Moll de la Fusta and the area around the Palau de Mar to the Rambla de Mar and the Olympic Port area, has become one of Barcelona 's most popular spaces for recreation and leisure.

____________Sights

i

There are so many Barcelona activities and sights to see, that it has always been a challenge for most Barcelona travel guides to list them all. So in what area or what attraction is the best place to start exploring Barcelona? Well, once you leave your Barcelona hotel, grab a bite to eat at any Barcelona restaurant then head straight to a popular starting point for newbies -- the Ramblas. This lovely promenade runs from the port to Plaça de Catalunya.

If you head for the port, you can stroll down de Paseo de Colon boulevard, visit the beach, the harbour and the aquarium, and climb de San Sebastia tower to take in some of the best views of views of the city. The tower, located in an area that is better known as Barceloneta (little Barcelona), is also the place where the cable car for Montjuic departs.

The hill Montjuic has a nice park, an impressive fortress, and some good museums, such as the Miro museum, which has, besides a good collection of Miro paintings, a fairly extensive modern art collection. The Spanish village, which has remained intact, is also located in this area.

Plaza de Catalunya is the heart of the modern centre. This is also the area where you will find a high concentration of houses designed by Gaudí. Pick up one of the walking Barcelona travel guides and follow the traces of this remarkable architect throughout the town. Of course, the tour isn’t complete without a visit to the unfinished Sagrad Familia, the Parc Guell, and the Gaudí Museum.

The old city centre, better known as the Gothic Quarter, offers a good view of medieval times and all sorts of architectural styles that left their mark on this part of the city. The Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral and its plaza are only a few of the interesting sights in this area. There are several palaces, either still in use by the government (or foundations) or left on their own to be explored by visitors. The Picasso museum is located in one of these palaces (Montcada 15-23) and this is only one of the many interesting museums that Barcelona has to offer. This is the perfect area to get lost and explore the winding streets, the little shops and some of the best Barcelona the tapas bars.

La Sagrada Familia the magnificent surreal church is designed by Gaudí. While still unfinished it’s like no other church you’ll ever see: Its design is a combination of a dragon’s cave and a castle made from whipped cream. (You can take an elevator up one of the spires but be prepared to cover your ears—the bell may gong while you’re up there. The view is awe- and vertigo-inspiring.)

Outside the centre of Barcelona you find the beautiful Parc Guell. Guadi wanted to design a municipal parc that looked like one of the English parcs and so compensate the industrialisation in Barcelona a bit. Gaudí made it a splendid parc with lots of colours, round shapes, mosaic and lovely little houses which make you believe in fairy tales. Take bus nr. 24 or the metro. When you want to skip walking up the hill I'd suggest you take the bus.

La Casa Mila (nicknamed La Pedrera) is the last wonderful building that Gaudí designed. It is built between 1905 and 1910 and has beautiful ornamental balconies and an extraordinary chimneys. There may be long queues for the entrance and you may fiind the entrance fee steep.

So if you're not into a full guided tour, you can go into the exposition hall on the first floor. It shows expositions of contemporary artists and entrance is free. You get a good impression of the building too, although you miss the chimneys on the roof.

Barcelona is known for the promenade with its book stalls, flower stalls and people parading. It stretches from the seaside to Plaza de Catalunya and is a good promenade from which to explore the rest of the town. Interesting buildings along the promenade are the Academia de Sciencias, the old Gothic church de Betlem and the Palacio de Moya. When you leave the Ramblas for the Mercado de la Boqueria, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of one of the oldest markets in the city.

The work combines stone, iron and bronze, and consists of a column that rises from a base sculpted with the figures of prominent people related to the discovery. At the top, the sculpture of Columbus points the sea. Inside the column, which measures 2.25 meters in diameter, there is a lift that goes up to the viewing gallery.

__________History
Edit This
Torre Agbar

Torre Agbar
In the late 1800's ten enthusiasts who were led by Hans Gamper were playing an unknown sport called 'foot-ball'. When Gamper went on to found Barcelona Football Club on 29 November 1899, he could never have imagined the events that would follow!

Throughout some of Catalonia's most troubled times, the flag represented the people's hopes for freedom, and today that very flag is the symbolic link which continues to represent the ties between a very special club and its' supporters.

Over the course of a century, the club has lived through moments of glory and tragedy, through good times and bad, through epic victories and crushing defeats. Each one of these moments has contributed to shaping Barcelona into the absolutely unique club that it has become today.

Barcelona's is renownd for its impressive statistics but another factor is certainly that Barcelona is one of the most highly decorated teams in the world. exept for the International Cup, the showcases of the Barcelona museum displays every trophy possible. Topping off the impressive collection is the European Cup, the crowning glory of a Wembley final that went into the history books.

Quite apart from winning the supreme continental prize, Barcelona is also in the extremely enviable position of being the only team in Europe to have taken part in every European Cup since 1955 the first year the tournament started. Their massive European trophy collection also includes the Cup Winners' Cup, which the club has won no less than four times - making it undisputed king. Barcelona has also collected four UEFA Cups, two of these when the tournament was still known as the Industrial Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

Of course, Barcelona is top in Spain as well as in Europe and no other Spanish team can compare to Barcelona's 24 championship titles in the Copa del Rey.

As for the Spanish championship league (historically one of the toughest competition grounds for the club), Barcelona celebrates the centenary birthday with 16 league titles to its name. Six of these were gained over the past ten years alone!.

______________Practical Information
Edit This
Although - or maybe because of the fact - Barcelona is a rich city, there are many poor people on the street begging for money, sometimes a bit agressive. Whenever you sit down on a place in a cafe, there will be someone making music and asking for money. Take care of your hand-luggage, there are pick-pockets, too.

Barcelona can be pretty expensive for tourists, so when you go there I can give you a good tip: buy a discount card; it saves you a lot of money! I bought one, named the Go and Connect discount card, which was only 12 euros. With this card I was able to go out for almost nothing. I got discounts in a lot of shops, restaurants, clubs, transport rentals and more!

______________Getting Around
Edit This

The modern part of the city is built on a grid system and the old town (from Plaça de Catalunya to the port) is a labyrinth of narrow winding streets. Bring a good map to find your way or get lost and see what the city has to offer. You can explore the Barcelonian sights by foot or use one of the many other possibilities, such as the metro, taxi or cable car.

City buses run daily from 5:30am to 11:30pm and the route maps are displayed at the bus-stops. They do not drive very carefully, like the rest of the traffic in Barcelona, so beware. The ones with a red band always have a stop at a central square and blue bands indicate night buses. The single ticket costs 1,10€, so it's better to take a 10-ticket card for 6,00€. If you will stay just a couple of days and want to use it a lot a unipersonal ticket for 2 days costs 8,40€ and the 3 days card 11,80€.

Barceloneta beach is the closest beach to Barcelona city centre. If you walk to Colom at the end of the Ramblas you have about a 15 mins walk to the beach, alternatively see below for metro information. Barceloneta has many great sea food restaurants serving up fresh catches of the day. In the street Vauban you'll find a declicious and typical restaurant for fishermen a little bit dirty but great food.

_____________Nightlife and Entertainment

Enjoy Barcelona night

Enjoy Barcelona night

Barcelona offers some of the trendiest nightclubs and discos in Spain. The best time to go out is on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Most clubs charge a cover (at its own discretion) and unfortunately, the doorpersons tend prey on foreigners. The best thing you can do is dress to the nines, and be nice!

To find your way, check the area list just below or scroll through all entertainment venues in the listings.

Most popular areas:

Plaça Reial area: Take some beers at el Glaciar or el Sidecar, after that try at el Club 13 (until 03.00), after that head to el Jamboree if you like hip hop, or el Karma if you prefer independent pop-rock (until 06.00).

El Raval is the Barcelona's most diverse area with a mixture of cultures and atmospheres. It was much neglected until recently. Actually is full of small hip bars. Betweeen Ramblas del Raval and Paralelo street you'll find nice fashion pubs such "Las Guindas" or " La Confitería". For those who love the kitsch ambient you'll find th earea full of options such "Marseille" or "El Cangrejo". For clubbing it is a must to go to the "Moog" or to "Fellini".

El Born and La Ribera, one of the trendiest areas to be in, combine the romanticism of the old city with the newly designed interiors of its numerous bars, clubs and restaurants. This area attracts couples and groups in their 30s looking for sophisticated, relaxing and intimate bars. Try at the "Local.bar", "suborn" and "the Maggic" for dancing.

Poblenou area: Take some beers at l´Ovella, and after that try at Razzmatazz (one of the best clubs in town). In this hall were playing all the bands in their early tours (Chemical Brs, Massive Attack, Blur, Oasis, Coldplay)

Vila Olimpica area: For low cost tourist, catalans say "ambiente guiri". Try at Baja club or Catwalk. Shoko club” is also nice ambient. It is full of pubs with a low cost trousit profile. Spanish & Intrenational Music. All the area close at 3.00 am.

Zona Alta area: Take your first beers at La Borsa (imported beers from worlwide), after that go to some disco or club in the area. The top is Luz de Gas, there you´ll find people up to 50 y/old men trying to met 20y/old girls, and 40 y/old women trying same with 20 y/old boys. If you want to met rich girls, that´s the place. For the nicest people. "Ambiente muy pijo". At the top of Tibidabo Hill there is an area featuring fashionable pubs & club. For first drinks with nice views go to Miralblau and then for dancing go to the Danzatoria Disco or to the Roswood Club.

For gay and lesbian:

For gays & lesbians, visit the area called the "Gayeixample" -- a city area that stretches from Casanova to Paseo de Gracia and from Aragon to Gran Vía. Many places can be found on Diputación Street & in Casanova with Aragon. Disco “Arena” for the guys and “Aire” for lesbians are highly recommended. If you are looking for stronger sensations, you'll find the disco La Metro to your liking.
