Synonym of culture, fashion y trends, Barcelona always gives me good feelings. Being only two days, you won’t see eveything but I can give some few good spots to visit:

1. Las Ramblas
Promenades in the city with some artesanal markets and souvenirs and clothes shops that ends next to the sea. It’s a melting pot of culture, locals and tourists.

2. Mercat de la Boquería – Food Market
A Must! Ask for “Pan de Coca” (special bread) with tomato, tapas and shellfish next to a fresh beer. A real life pleasure!!

3. El Raval
A District a little bit “dangerous”, but I don’t share it. It’s a multicultural district with a lot of life, fancy shops and beautiful small restaurants.

4. Gaudí, Gaudí
Don’t need to tell you that you must go to the Sagrada Familia – buy the tickets online before your trip to be sure to get in. Don’t miss the Batlló House and the “Pedrera”

5. Park Güell
Spectacular views of the city from one of the highest spot of the city. You’ll find the famous dragon, the square of nature and a lot of much more surprises.

6. Seafront Promenade
Have a walk next to the Barceloneta Beach to the Maremagnum Shopping Center. Do it in the afternoon when everybody’s out enjoying the day. Fantastic!

7. Gothic District
The district with a lot of history… You’ll walk between old walls and feel the energy of the spirit of the city. Stop at the Cathedral of Barcelona.

If you’re looking for a place to sleep, you’ll find a lot of option but the best place to stay – from my experience – are the Ayre Hoteles
