What to do in Barcelona
If you like museums, Barcelona is going to blow your mind. Famous for it’s Museu Maritim, you’ll adore the mighty Gothic shipyards shelter and the remarkable relics from Barcelona’s days as the seat of a seafaring empire.
Want to immerse yourself in local life? Check out their amazing local Market; Mercat de la Boqueria, one of La Rambla’s most interesting building, not so much for it’s design but for it’s stands filled with fresh local goods.
Barcelona is definitely known for it’s fine dining, but also for it’s amazing local food. Make sure to take some time to experience the hard to find gem La Cova Fumada. It has no sign and the setting is decidedly downmarket, but this tiny, buzzing family-run tapas spot is always packed. Why? Mouthwatering octopus, and a dozen different plates like bombas and grilled carxofes.
