(More) Barcelona has it all: beautiful monuments, viewpoints, parks, restaurants, bars and everything you could look for in a city. The well-known part of Barcelona is amazing, but I like to explore the genuine side, the neighbourhoods that were once isolated villages that give a rest of the crowds. (Less)

Celler Cal Marino land poi

Food

Celler Cal Marino

It's a wine cellar and a tapas bar that's located in the trendy Poble Sec neighbourhood. They also offer craft beer and cheese of local production. Edu, the owner is lovely, ask him for advice.

Cementiri de Poble Nou land poi

Viewpoint

Cementiri de Poble Nou

It has pavilions, mausoleums and sculptures. The tombs belong to illustrous catalan figures, members of families of the bourgeoisie and there are also anonymous graves, like those of the gypsies. Walk around the beautiful graveyard!

La Escocesa land poi

Other

La Escocesa

Center of multidisciplinary artistic production, focused on visual arts, located in a building that used to be a chemical factory for the textile industry. Around it you'll find a lot of urban graffities.

Psycho land poi

Club

Psycho

Rock & Roll bar in which they play funk, soul, garage, grunge and every different branch of the genre. They also have live music. Good vibe and local ambiance with lots of Bowie, Ramones, Lou Reed...

You can't imagine the quantity of great things Barcelona has to offer beyond the main sights. I've loved the way the routes are planned, with plenty of options to eat or drink (super locals) along the way. Maybe the only problem would be that daily routes are a bit too long... But you can just stop anytime in fact... (Less)

I loved every minute of my trip thanks to this guide! I didn't know there was so much left for me to see.

Good plans with good friends, good beer and wine!

The places suggested were great, but they were too many so we couldn't visit some of them.

Visiting Turo de la rovira's bunkers was definitely the best for us! We took a picnic, as recommended, and waited for sunset... No money can buy that views!


Sophia

Very good
