Thank you Guadi for of my personal favorite spots in Barcelona. These beautiful views are breath taking and make an awesome background for your new profile pic.
The bartenders here know how to whip up upwards of 500 kinds of shots, and each one is like a show. Can’t decide if these guys are more like magicians or artists.

This sandwich is life-changing. Honestly I wouldn’t even call myself a foodie, but this sandwich is what dreams are made of. It’s something you need to experience to understand.
8. La Rambla
You can really feel the electric spirit of Barcelona when walking down La Rambla. This tree-lined pedestrian mall is the heart of Barcelona, with an endless amount of delicious restaurants and locals selling handmade goods.
9. La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia is one of Gaudí’s most famous works in Barcelona. It’s been under construction since 1882 and it’s not expected to be completed for some time. This massive basilica is guaranteed to make your jaw drop.
