Summer is meant by enjoying every moment since it only comes once a year. How do we change a boring afternoon to an amazing afternoon? We will help you with making a great plan.
Begin with Palau Robert´s exhibition
After eating, it does not seem fun to walk in direct sunlight and suffocate ourselves with the heat. A better alternative is going to Palau Robert´s from Barcelona exhibition, located in paseo de Garcia with Av. Diagonal. This is one of exhibition spots in reference to the city.
Here you can find exhibitions from Dalí, even general ones focused on photography, music or politics. Also, instead of visiting one interesting and eye-catching exhibition, you can also stroll around the gardens.
Eat a delicious ice cream
After a good walk or stroll, is ice cream time. The difficult part is choosing a place since there are several options.
If you look for an original proposal, you can´t miss out on Rocambolesc. This ice cream shop, lead by Joan Roca is immersed in the Willy Wonka world (the one you do not want to leave). Every city that has Rocambolesc has their own iconic ice cream: the one from Madrid, a bear with a fruity flavor; Girona, the Cul of Lleona, with apple and bergamot; and in Barcelona, el Dedo de Colón, with chocolate, oil, and salt.
You cannot miss out on Dark Vader´s mask (blueberry and vanilla) or Jaime Lannister´s artificial hand (blood orange and mango). However, we recommend warm ice cream sandwiches.
Wander through the Gothic streets
After filling yourself up with an ice cream or two, wandering around the Gothic neighborhood is a perfect plan. There are so many things to see: Barcelona´s cathedral, Plaça del Rei, Frederic Marés Museum, Plaça de Sant Jaume, Plaça Pi and surroundings, Plaça Reial, churches in the gothic area…
Go to the movies
By ending the afternoon and resting after a long day, we suggest having a relaxing plan…
Are you passionate about movies? Do you enjoy watching a movie alone or with company? From June 29th to August 3rd arrives the 6th edition of “Cinema Lliure Platja”, a free sample from a self-reliant movie theater. This is celebrated every summer in Barcelona´s beaches, El Prat of Llobregat and Mataró from 21h until night. This is perfect for culminating an afternoon´s summer plan.
All the programed movies in Cinema Lliure have something in common: they are independent movie films with great quality and have been part of a festival. Like this, the sample is used as a movie trailer showcase, it is also a proponent for different festivals.
All of the sample movies are send out in an original version and when the original language is not Spanish nor Catalan, the movie will have subtitles. When the movie is Spanish the subtitles are in English. This way the projections are available to everyone, especially to their nationality.
Whatever you do, a lot of alternatives exist for a perfect summer plan. If you come to Barcelona do not miss out on these suggestions! And remember, if you want to travel faster, comfortable and easy Aerobus will pick you up from the airport to the center of the city in 35 minutes. All the days of the year. Purchase your ticket online and you do not have to worry about anything!
