Hey! Welcome or welcome back to my blog. Last September I went to Barcelona with my friends for a long weekend. We arrived late Thursday night and then left late Sunday night so we had three filled days there.
On the Friday morning we first went to Mount Tibidabo and visited the amusement park and the church. The mountain is obviously high up so the view is absolutely incredible due to the fact that you can see all the way across the city. The inside of the church was gorgeous and the whole place was so picturesque and so beautiful I would completely recommend going to visit here as it is so beautiful and their is a very nice hike that you can take to get up there.
After we went to the sagrada familia and got a tour around it. It was the most beautiful church i’d ever seen and the outside was so intricate that it was so unbelievable! It’s such a good place to visit whilst away in Barcelona because it’s obviously an iconic building and it is so beautiful.
Afterwards we returned and had a Spanish dance class which was extremely fun and i would recommend for any friends who go to visit a holiday place or visit another country it is just so much fun.
On Saturday morning we went to a small village and looked through the shops and markets then headed down to a park where we had a picnic and looked at the beach, we then went into the main city of Barcelona and looked at all of the beautiful buildings and went to Las Rambles which was so busy but worth it because of the amount of shops it felt like such a real Barcelona experience because of how famous it is (AND the sephora has a slide!!!!). We then went to the hard rock cafe which was alright but I am sure there are some better places to go for food in Barcelona. After, we went to a fountain show which was absolutely amazing because it had music and lights and it was so fun to dance in the fountains with my friends!! I would recommend going to see it so much because it was incredible and one of the main highlights of the trip!
On sunday morning we went into the city and then the picasso museum which was interesting and very aesthetically pleasing. We then wondered about the city and walked up to the olympic stadium and the olympic pool which was so cool to see how big it was and how beautiful. We then walked to the New Camp- Barcelona football stadium which was interesting and was quite impressive and the cafe there was good! I would recommend for anyone even people who aren’t football fans. After that we looked around the city a bit more and then left to go to the airport, where we had a flight from hell haha.
Thank you so much for reading! Barcelona is amazing and if you are looking for anywhere to go to i would highly recommend this amazing city!
Love, Niamh Xx
