Wanderers Ways - passion not fashion

Recommended Posts

Great beach it’s a must.  

Do the cable cars, tour of Nou Camp. I’ve got a number of a chap who can sort it out at short notice as well if needed.

 Get a game there and watch Lionel, whilst you still can.

Holy Cross cathedral is spectacular.

Get the tour bus tickets you can use them all day and jump on off wherever you want. Be careful with your money and belongings around las ramblas in the evenings. At night if your going somewhere to eat get a taxi be much easier and safer than pissing around on buses or metro.  Go to el Corte Ingles department store for lunch loads of options to eat and it’s on top floor with great views over the city. Take in familia sagrada if your into sightseeing.

The 360 degree rooftop bar on top of the Barcelo Raval is a good spot. As the name suggest, views over the entire city and some of the views on the balcony were very nice too (topless female sun worshippers).

My highlights were La Boqueria, which is the market, Montjuic which has the fountains and museums to look round and has probably the best views of the city - great to do at night, Fundacio Joan Miro - hero of Catalans, amazing art.

Also, for a break from site seeing have a coffee at Els Quarte Gats - famous cafe whose patrons included Picasso, Gaudi etc Not far from Las Rhamblas and the Churros there are ace.

Do go to Park Guell.

Went, saw the size of the queue and thought fuck that 

Cable car, tour of the nou camp though it does look smaller from the outside and the beach. Which apparently was a no go area till they got the Olympics and they cleaned it up

good bar to watch English footy in is  https://futballarium.com/etlap/

if you fancy something different - go and watch Barcelona futsal team  - they're at home on the 18th April, or the basketball on the 2nd 5th and 16th - its right next to the nou camp, you can get tickets for less than £10 from the ticket kiosks at the nou camp. 

if you want to get away from the busy tourist  areas,  There's a mini trafford centre type place  https://www.granvia2.com/

with loads of restaurants , its quiet in the daytime

Get in Flaherty's Irish bar and drink youself unconscious or until you soil yourself, whichever comes first

Surely not. If you soil yourself first, you carry on drinking until you lose consciousness.

Anyway, if you like fizz, then Xampaneria Can Paixano, just before you get to the afore-mentioned Black Lab. (nearest metro is Barceloneta)
