There's no lack of sights to feast your eyes upon in Barcelona. Even if you're just strolling up Passeig de Gracia or along Las Ramblas down to Barceloneta beach, the breadth of intricate architecture, zany characters, avant-garde design and gorgeous buildings can make a five-minute walk turn into an hour journey.
No matter what time of day, if you walk by Gaudi's Casa Batllo, you'll see people gathered together below, gawking up at the Modernist visage; and this is just one 'must-see' attraction in Barcelona.
Whether you're spending time along the water or feel like heading into the more Catalan filled, Gracia neighborhood, there are sights to be seen and one of the best things about Barcelona is that it's one of the easiest cities to navigate and to get around.
The metro quickly takes you from the Roman Ruins in the heart of ‘Ciutat Vella’ (Old City) into the Modernist period where you can hop a bus, a ‘ferrocaril’ (train) or cable car up to Montjuic or Tibidabo. Barcelona is a city designed to be explored and with so many landmarks, monuments and breathtaking works of art, there's no shortage of things to keep you occupied no matter how long your stay.
