First stop: La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter
As a starting point we have marked La Rambla, one of the nerve centers of this city. Port Vell is a good place from which to contemplate the first general view of Barcelona. In this area is the famous Palau Güell, designed by Antoni Gaudí, which we have already told you about in Aerobús. Your visit to the interior can last up to an hour, so we recommend that you check their schedules in advance and include it in your itinerary as an essential. Take advantage and visit the Plaza Real, to appreciate all the pieces and sculptures with modernist airs.
One of the perfect streets to stop for lunch is Calle Pertixol, Plaza Sant Jaume, the Town Hall, the Palacio de la Generalitat and Plaza del Rey. Another of the most worthwhile visits is the Plaza Sant Neri, where the Bisbe Bridge is located, one of the most magical and legendary sections of the entire city.
Stop for Gaudí’s works
If after eating in the La Boquería market typical products of the community, you want to continue with a cultural tour, do not hesitate to go to the Plaza de Catalunya, a scene to photograph. Walk Paseo de la Gracia, a street full of charm and buildings that deserve a stop to see its facades. In them you will find two of the most important houses in the history of Catalan modernism: Casa Batlló and Casa Milá. Both are worth visiting, since they allow you to know first-hand all the concepts that Gaudí embodied in his buildings and in his sculptures.
You can’t go through Barcelona without getting to know the Sagrada Familia, an unfinished building with hundreds of curiosities inside and outside. To get to this point you can take a walk of about 20 minutes on foot or choose a metro route that saves you time. Although it already impresses from the outside, the interior is much more original than you may think.
The end of the day
To end your day on foot, we recommend that you do not miss seeing the famous Gothic Quarter at night, one of the most interesting points and that has inspired writers from all over the world at different moments in history. One of the places that we like to recommend the most for night visits is the Bosc de Fades, full of magic for children and adults. It is a place where you can see human figures, trees and you can also enjoy a drink with the best setting. In this part of the city you also have several historic cafes and restaurants that will add an extra to this one-day walking tour, in addition to the Cathedral of Barcelona and the Palau de la Música.
