3 Places to Sleep, Eat and See in Barcelona

“To be an artist is to believe in life.” Said by the famous Barcelona artist Joan Miró. And truly an embodiment of what captures the heart and soul of Barcelona. Life. In all its tenses. Past, present and future.

There is an air of mystery, charm and playfulness to life in Barcelona that takes over your senses. And I encourage you to slow down and take it all in.

Here are a few places to indulge and delight your senses during your trip to Barcelona:

EAT

  • Parking Pizza - Thanks to a tip from a local. One of the best pizza’s I’ve ever had.

  • Informal - Fresh interpretations of traditional Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine by Marc Gascons

  • Surf House Barcelona - Healthy food options with a great beachfront location

  • Mies Van Der Rohe Pavillion - One of the most influential modernist buildings of the 20th Century designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

  • A stroll in the Gothic Quarter - Narrow medieval streets filled with history and charm. Don’t miss Carrer del Bisbe for views of a famous and stunning neo-Gothic bridge.

I was provided complimentary stays with Hotel Brummell, The Serras Hotel and Yurbban Trafalgar. Each hotel is located in a different area of the city and all of them offer a unique, enjoyable experience. I couldn’t recommend them more. As always all opinions are my own, and I only promote hotels and brands that I think deserve it.
