Barcelona Part 2
During my trips in Barcelona I’ve visited many places and there are still a lot that I haven’t seen yet. But here is a list of places that I had the chance to see:
La Sagrada Familia
El Bario Gotico
El Mercado de la Boqueria
With the Rambles, Barcelona is the most popular city to visit in Spain as it gathers a number of cultural establishments and restaurants. It also has many attractions for tourists. Along the promenade's length are kiosks that sell newspapers and souvenirs, other kiosks selling flowers, street traders, performers, and pavement cafes and bars.
La Rambla is always crowded during the day and until late in the night. But you’ll have to watch out because La Rambla often suffers from the attention of pickpockets!
The Park Guell is a public park composed of gardens and architectonic elements. The park was built from 1900 to 1914 and was named after Antoni Gaudi, a famous architect from the city of Barcelona. The Park offers many beautiful landscapes, so I took the opportunity to take many pictures!
La Sagrada Familia is the most important attraction of the city. It is an imposing cathedral built in 19 and it represents Gaudi’s art and its visionary genius. La Sagrada Familia is also the symbol of city of Barcelona all around the World. Every year, there are millions of people who came to visit it and to take pictures of its very particular architecture.
Even if the construction of La Sagrada Familia started in 1882, the building is still on construction nowadays. It is expected to be finished in 2026!
Now let’s talk about, El Barrio Gótico. It is located near The Rambles and is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. The quarter encompasses the oldest parts of the city of Barcelona, and includes the remains of the city's Roman wall and several notable medieval landmarks. You can also find a medieval Jewish quarter located within the area. It’s a site full of History and you can visit it by yourself if you’re an adventurer or book a trip with a local guide and a group of travellers. This will allow you to meet new people and friends! 😊

Next is La Barceloneta. La Barceloneta is a neighborhood in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. La Barceloneta is known for its sandy beach and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk.
With its modernity, La Barceloneta continues to inhabit the scent of salt and marine life. For many, this is considered a luxury. La Barceloneta also attracts many cruise ships to dock.
Today, the neighbourhood of La Barceloneta continues to be perceived as foreign to the city of which it is located. However, the environment has changed dramatically, and with that, especially in the summer, for when the beach is most popular. From day to night, the beach of La Barceloneta is the most animated of all of Barcelona.
The La Boqueria market opens off the Rambla and is one of the city's foremost tourist landmarks, housing a very diverse selection of goods.

My favourite place was the Parc de la Ciutadella which is a nice park on the north-eastern edge of Ciutat Vella in Barcelona. There are many monuments and a nice architecture. It’s a perfect place to develop your photography skills!
There are also some places that I didn’t had time to visit so don’t hesitate to go and discover these beautiful places!
Placa de Catalunya
