Travel advice for budget tourists in Barcelona, my trip to Spain

SPAIN | Tuesday, 9 February 2010 | Views [660]

Hi all,

I was really impressed by Barcelona and the sad story is I lost my digital camera on my trip back home, I must have left it is some airport counter or something because nothing else was missing from my bag, the thing is the camera wasn’t a great expensive one, but the memory card had all my trip pictures in it so I couldn’t upload any of them into my blog. I don’t miss my camera I miss my memory card:confused:

Some suggestions: La Sagrada Familia temple, Hospital Sant Pau which a lot of people don't see; take the Avinguda Gaudi from Sagrada Familia straight there. Also El Palau de la Musica for a tour and concert. Quatre Gats for some history, food and drink. Carrer Montcada for the Museu Picasso, Xampanyet bar, and Santa Maria del Mar church (wine by the glass at the wine bar in front of the church). Passeig del Born for dinner and nightlife. Bari Gotico for a trip back in time. Visit the main cathedral and don't miss the cloister; see if you can find the little Plaza Sant Felip Neri nearby. The newly renovated Mercat Santa Caterina as well as the well-known Boqueria market on Ramblas. The Museu Maritim. Unfortunately the Palau Guell is closed. The Gaudi and other Modernist buildings on Passeig de Gracia. Nice walk: continue up Passeig de Gracia from P.Catalunya. Passeig de Gracia becomes Gran de Gracia. Continue all the way up to Plaza Lesseps. There you can visit the Gracia area or head to another location. Plaza Lesseps is a bus and metro hub.

the Gracia neighborhood (metro: Fontana). The beach at Nova Icaria and the promenade that goes south along the water from there to Barceloneta (nice walk). A seafood dinner on a Sunday afternoon outdoors at a good Barceloneta restaurant (get a local recommendation). The used book and music sale at Mercat Sant Antoni on Sunday morning. The Magic Fountains at Montjuic. Also in Montjuic: the Caixa Forum exhibit center, the Mies Van de Rohe Pavilion, the Miro museum. A good Catalan meal at Can Culleretes on Carrer Quintana near Ramblas.

What about cheap accommodation in Barcelona on Las Ramblas  by 50 euros/night for studio apartment - www.BarcelonaRealEstate.es 

 Food &Restaurans in Barca - i liked a restaurants:

La Fonda Escudellers, carrer dels Escudellers

Les Quinze Nits, Plaça Reial 6

Los Caracoles, carrer dels Escudellers

Spain makes a lot of good wine - not just Rioja and Cava:D
