48 hours in barcelona


Here is how we spent our two days in Barcelona, with some little tips along the way..!


Do

La Sagrada Familia
* Gaudi's seemingly forever under construction Roman Catholic church
* Reserve tickets in advance!
* Make sure to go up in either the Passion or Nativity Tower (Passion has an elevator/lift to go up and down, Nativity only has a lift to go up, then stairs to go down)








Casa Batllo
* Creation of Gaudi
* Reserve tickets in advance!
* Good rainy day activity







Parc Guell
* Entrance was very confusing - we never actually went in
* Great views of Barcelona - you don't have to pay!
* Quite a trek from central Barcelona



Catedral de Barcelona
* Free at certain times
* Make sure to dress appropriately




Eat

* In Spain, eating times are much later for lunch and dinner! Don't be surprised if places are closed at times you want to eat. You can always snack on tapas though..

Tapas 
* Snacks/appetizers famous in Spanish cuisine

Churros con chocolate


Drink

Hot Chocolate
* Much thicker/more delicious than American hot chocolate!
