We are in our fifties and do not like organized tours but would like to get a good feel for the city. We have been in other cities in Spain and loved them! Especially interested in seeing Gaudi architecture. Thanks.

    Definitely early hours for the Sagrada Familia! The lines can be prohibitive. You MUST see Parque Guell as an example of Gaudi archietecture and design - give yourself at least three hours to wander through the park.

    Other Gaudi buildings can be seen along the Passeig in the city centre. Gaudi's first contribution to the architecture of Barcelona is some quirky street lights in Placa Real - probably a bit lesser-known.

    If you do one thing in Barcelona, go to the la boqueria food markets! They are an amazing cornucopia of deliciousness!

    Other than the Sagrada Familia and Parque Guell, most of the cities gasp-worthy sights can be enjoyed within strolling distance from the city centre. The Cathedral is worth checking out, and the labyrinthine tracery of old cobbled streets that surround it are a great place to wander through just to get a feel for the city.

    Barcelona is a beautiful city! Enjoy! over 6 years ago
