Comments and reviews of Barcelona
I spent a whole day walking around, watching the people and Barcelona daily living. I liked the parks and all the green little places spread around the city. I visited some cult points (Las Ramblas, Sagrada familia, barrio gótico, etc), but what I liked the most was the special atmosphere Barcelona has. I don't know how to explain it, but I felt like in my place.
Wow I did like Barcelona... You have everything you would need.. culture, nice food, nice weather, sports, beach .. I haven't seen anything similar in Europe.. This was my second time in Cataluña, the first time I was on a guided tour (no way I am going to do that anymore) and everything was schedule every second of your life . this time I went with three girlffirend , we rented an apartment for shorts stay (nice, cheap, central), we bought our food, we met our neighbors...Well we were a bit spanish for some day. Suggestions: go to Mercado Boqueria to get food, great quality and prices, for apartment rentals our experience was excellent with: www.pillowapartments.com; for a nice dinner go to the caracoles.. so spanish!!
I had forgotten how much I love architecture until I wandered the streets of Barcelona. Gaudi's influence is everywhere from his famous Sagrada Familia church to the sidewalks in the Eixample neighborhood.
