A MINIMALIST GUIDE TO BARCELONA

Food/Drink:

Tropicó (08001, Carrer Marquès de Barberà 24) – If you’re a pancake lover (like I am) you should definitely check out this place but actually everything looks amazing there … and I really do not exaggerate!

Lulu Barcelona (08003, Av. del Marquès de l’Argentera 7) – Smoothie hearts will beat faster – the “Creamy Green” is to die for but the breakfast specials are also worth a try.

Wer-Haus (08009, Carrer d’Aragó 287) – Reminded me of Voo Store in Berlin, a hip coffee spot selling books and designer clothes for men in a cosy and tropical atmosphere.

Satan’s Coffee Corner (08010, Gran Via de Les Corts Catalanes 700) – I am no coffee addict but I liked the atmosphere and Diana the coffee, so I guess it should be a part of this little list.

Palo Alto Market (08019, Carrer dels Pellaires 30) – It’s a mixture of amazing food and local design brands but also a very touristic thing. Still a nice place to fill your belly with desserts!

Do’s:

MACBA (08001, Plaça dels Àngels 1) – The Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona is a must-see. I am a huge museum lover but most of the time I catch myself starring at the ceilings, strolling around the huge corridors and losing myself in the things around me. The architecture of this place made me nearly bowl over.

Parc de la Ciutadella (08003, Passeig de Picasso 21) – Oh yes, it’s like a tropical oasis in the middle of Barcelona, no further words needed, just go explore.

Bunker del Carmel (08032, Carrer del Turó de la Rovira) – If you want to see Barcelona from above, it’s the place to go but we just stopped at a lower level to avoid the mass of people.

Jardí Botànic (08038, Carrer del Doctor Font i Quer 2) – Just some tropical flowers, a great view over the city and a motivational hike for all the people like me who always accidentaly let their flowers die.

Port Fòrum (08930, C/ Pau 12) – If you have a weakness for minimalist architecture and bright aesthetics, go for it!

The Beach – I know you already heard about the beach (who doesn’t) but just stroll around, enjoy the salty air and keep an eye out for sea shells.

Don’ts

Sagrada Familia – It’s not worth it and doesn’t look amazing at all plus the touristic hustle and bustle mixed with pickpockets.

Using Public Transport all the time – We barely used the metro/bus but walked as much as possible.
