With its incredible architecture, ever-growing culinary scene and world-class attractions, Barcelona has everything you need to keep the entire family entertained.
Stroll down Las Ramblas
Admittedly, Las Ramblas is overcrowded and touristy, but it’s the perfect introduction to Barcelona. This tree-lined pedestrian mall stretches just over a kilometre and is full of street performers in elaborate setups (look for the biceletos and golden angel) that will happily pose for a picture with you—for a tip! Las Ramblas also has plenty of cafés, restaurants, and bars, perfect for taking a break. If you’re looking for a meal where the locals eat, head east to the Gothic Quarter or west to El Raval.
