前言：我们为什么推荐您去巴塞罗那呢? 巴塞罗那多样化的建筑确实让这座城市脱颖而出。高第的古埃尔公园和圣家族教堂都令人印象深刻，La Seu和Montjuïc城堡也是令人印象深刻的。当你厌倦了建筑，在海滩上放松，吃着当地的食物(西班牙小吃)，或者沿着兰布拉大道品尝桑格利亚汽酒。
Barcelona contains both the authentically historic and the wildly bizarre. From the scenic trails of the colorful Park Güell to the romantic narrow alleys of Barri Gòtic; from the beachside nightclubs to the city's dozens of sacred churches and architectural marvels, this city by the sea seems to attract all types: the adventurer, the couple, the partier, the culture lover – and more – with an almost overwhelming variety of things to do. You could stay for a few days, but chances are you'll need a whole week to explore.
In Barcelona, even the beach is bustling, but it's really the cosmopolitan city that gets all the attention. Much of the activity revolves around Las Ramblas, a series of narrow streets and alleys packed with restaurants, nightclubs and a vibrant pedestrian market. But you should also take a tour of Antoni Gaudí's masterpieces; Gaudí is responsible for sites like Casa Milà, Casa Batlló and La Sagrada Familia. You also shouldn't miss out on the eclectic shopping scene and the region's exquisite food and wine. You see why we suggest a week vacation?

Antoni Gaudí's Parc Güell is as whimsical as parks can get. The park was originally supposed to be a housing community for the rich, commissioned by Eusebi Güell. Güell hired Gaudí but the project eventually folded due to the land's incompatible building conditions. Gaudí continued on, modeling the park after gardens he had seen in England (Güell means English in Catalan) and building around the natural elements of the land instead of tearing them down.Travelers found Parc Güell to be a lovely place to spend a sunny day in Barcelona. Visitors loved the beautiful architecture of the park and how it seamlessly weaved into its natural surroundings. Some strongly suggested taking part in a guided tour to better understand the history and architectural detail of the park (guided tours are available at the park with the purchase of a guided tour ticket). Others also recommended taking time to explore the trails Park Güell has to offer, but make sure to come prepared. Being built on a hill, trails feature steep inclines and unpaved pathways. And keep in mind that since this is one of Barcelona's most popular attractions, there will seldom be a time when there isn't crowds. In fact, according to the Barcelona Tourism board, only 2.4 percent of Barcelona residents visit the park. The rest are national and international tourists.
Parc Güell is open every day, but hours vary depending on the season. There is a cost to enter the park. Tickets are 7 euros ($8) online and 8 euros (about $9.50) at the park. Reduced fares are available for children and seniors. Some visitors complained of not being able to be admitted to the park the day they arrived due to capacity restrictions, so getting a ticket in advance online is advised, especially if you're short on time. To get to the front entrance of the park, hop off at the Alfons X metro station. If you want to start at the top of the park and make your way down, get off at the Vallcarca stop. Keep in mind that there are no metro stations just a couple blocks away from the park. Vallcarca is a half a mile west and Alfons X is nearly a mile southeast.

东尼·高迪的古埃尔公园与其他公园一样可以得到的一样异想天开。公园最初应该是EusebiGüell委托的富人住宅社区。古埃尔雇用了高迪，但是由于这个土地的不兼容的建筑条件，这个项目最终被折叠起来。高迪继续说，他在英格兰看到的花园(古埃尔意味着英语在加泰罗尼亚语)，并围绕土地的自然元素而建造的公园建模，而不是把它们撕下来。现如今的公园占地42英亩的空间，并具有典型的高迪日式公园道具。在这里，游客将会看到一个长长的波浪石凳，上面摆放着充满活力的马赛克，并配有海景。这里的欢迎中心(在高迪和公园里放置公园纪念品和学习材料)看起来就像你在苏斯博士书中看到的建筑物，而不是简陋的行政大楼。您还可以找到许多风景如画的小路，沿着翠绿的植被，层叠的瓷砖楼梯和锯齿状的石柱和隧道。当你在这里，不要错过看到SalaHipóstila的机会。SalaHipóstila位于入口处，原本打算成为一个市场。现如今，它只不过是用尊贵的石柱和漂亮的马赛克作品来炫耀游客，你会发现它们在天花板上散落。其他受欢迎的景点包括 高 迪房子博物馆(GaudíHouse Museum)，高迪的故居转向博物馆，以及 Turóde les Tres Creus，这个观景点可以看到位于公园西南角的城市美景。
古埃尔公园每天开放，但时间因季节而异。进入公园是有成本的。门票是7欧元(8美元)在线和8欧元(约9.50美元)在公园。儿童和老年人的票价可以降低。有些游客抱怨由于容量限制，他们抵达公园的日子不能入住，所以建议在网上提前预订机票，特别是如果时间不够的话。要到达公园正门，在Alfons X地铁站下车。如果你想在公园的顶端开始下山，请在Vallcarca站下车。请记住，距离公园只有几个街区没有地铁站。Vallcarca在西半英里处，Alfons X在东南方向几乎一英里。欲了解更多信息，请访问古埃尔公园网站。
ven if you're not keen on visiting the touristy Las Ramblas, make the trek to the thoroughfare only for it to lead you to the foodie heaven that is the Boqueria Market. The Boqueria Market is Barcelona's first local market, having opened in 1840. But its foodie history spans much earlier than that. The first food peddlers were said to have been around as early as the 13th century selling meat on the streets. The market you see today wasn't around back then, it took four years to construct once Saint Joseph's convent left the area (hence the name of the market).Today that tradition of hawking goodies lives on, and the covered marketplace treats visitors to the vibrant colors and enticing aromas of everything from fruit juices and wines to fresh fish, meats, produce and desserts. Make sure to grab Spanish specialties while you're there, including jamón ibérico, manchego cheese and salted cod (or bacalao). What's more, bars and restaurants can be found in and around the market, so food options truly abound here.Travelers say if you plan on visiting the Boqueria Market, make sure you come with an empty stomach. Many travelers loved the bustling atmosphere of the market as well as the wide variety of food and snacks available, with lots of visitors favoring the pressed fruit juice available at some of the stalls. Some, on the other hand, weren't crazy about the prices, while others were overwhelmed by the amount of people that flood the market on a daily basis. If you're not one for crowds, travelers suggest coming early.The Boqueria is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Browsing is free, but definitely carry some cash with you just in case something catches your eye or makes your mouth water (which according to most visitors, is highly likely). The closest metro stop is Liceu on the L3 line. For more information, check out the market's website.
The Barri Gòtic, or Gothic Quarter, is the oldest part of Barcelona, and considering its location next to the city center, also its most liveliest. Here, you'll find beautiful examples Roman and Medieval-era architecture rubbing elbows with the many shops, restaurants, alfresco cafes, bars and clubs that line this neighborhood's narrow roads and picturesque plazas. And there are so many plazas to explore. Aside from Plaça de la Catedral, which you'll no doubt end up in if you visit the Barcelona Cathedral, make sure you stop in Plaça Reial and the smaller and much quainter Plaça Sant Felip Neri, which was bombed by Spanish dictator Francisco Franco during the Spanish Civil War (you can see scars from the attack on the church in the square). The palm tree-clad Plaça Reial is much more energetic and usually buzzes till the wee hours of the morning. Definitely come here to start your night out in Barcelona. Another notable plaza is Plaça Sant Jaume, where the Catalan seat of government has been since the Middle Ages. No matter where you end up in the Gothic Quarter, travelers say its Spanish splendor will leave you charmed long after you leave.
Visitors also say when visiting the Gothic Quarter, discard the map and just let yourself wander. The neighborhood isn't that big so you'll probably end up at top spots by mindlessly strolling. Some suggested taking part in a walking tour if you're interested in learning the history behind the neighborhood.The Gothic Quarter is free to explore all hours of the day and night. The closest metro stops are Liceu and Jaume I. If you're interested in taking part in a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter, the Barcelona Tourism Board offers them. For more information on walking tours, as well as the Gothic Quarter, visit the Barcelona Tourism Board website.
This bustling thoroughfare is one of the city's major tourist hubs. So much so that if you're visiting Barcelona, you're bound to end up here eventually. Las Ramblas is a pedestrian-friendly pathway situated right smack dab in the middle of the city, so expect it to be busy all hours of the day and night. During the day, you can peruse souvenir stands, watch buskers and street performers, pick up some local art from artists selling on the street, or sit down and enjoy a light snack at one of the many alfresco cafes found here. When the sun sets, you should head here to start your night out, as many bars and clubs can be found in the surrounding area.While Las Ramblas has no doubt established itself as a visitor-friendly stop, it didn't always cater to tourists the way it does now. Soon after the nearly mile-long thoroughfare was developed in 1766, it became a popular place to hang out for locals. The reason for this has to do with its design. Back in the day, streets in Barcelona were predominantly narrow and windy, making the long and wide Las Ramblas unconventionally roomy. Today, the chances of finding locals congregating here fewer and farther between, especially during the day. At night, however, since it is a prime place to party, you'll likely see some more Catalans.
From 1882 up until his death in 1926, Catalan Art Nouveau master Antoni Gaudí devoted himself to the construction of La Sagrada Família (Church of the Sacred Family), a towering Gothic-style-with-a-twist church. And even then, he was unable to finish; Gaudí was known for saying "My client (God) is in no hurry." The church, which is funded by private donations, is still under construction today and is said to be completed by 2026.La Sagrada Família is not only considered to be Gaudí most recognized work, but also his best. Believe it or not, this church wasn't always Gaudí's. The architect that was first commissioned to do the church, Francesc del Paula Villar, was replaced after disagreeing with promoters of the church. When Gaudí took on the project, he changed it entirely. Instead of the original neo-Gothic style, he looked toward something more innovative. While the church does feature Gothic elements, there are plenty of unconventional details that deviate from that norm throughout, resulting in an eye-catching structure that is entirely one of a kind.Even if you're not all that interested in architecture, you're sure to find this church — like Gaudí's other work — a feast for the eyes and full of symbolism. Gaudí's main goal for La Sagrada Família was to teach people about Catholicism through architecture. The best place to see this is right outside of the church, where you'll odes all over. The four towers represent the 12 apostles and the intricately carved facades at the base show the life of Christ, from his birth, death and resurrection. La Sagrada Família's interior are just as striking, from the smooth, nearly white stone columns to the rows of vibrant stained-glass windows.
