• 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!
• 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.
• 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.
