Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in all of Europe every year, so you can expect to centre to be packed with people any time of the year. But, from early spring until late autumn it is really packed, and the amazing thing with Barcelona, is that during the summer months you can combine your big city vacation with long and beautiful beaches. Tourists should though be aware of the fact that Barcelona is also well known for thieves stealing wallets, passports and valuables, so be sure to take good care of yourself and your belongings, and if you see something suspicious, walk away!
While in Barcelona you should of course not miss out on the beauties of Antoni Gaudi, the most famous of these the Sagrada Familia. But, the Park Güell, Casa Battlo and La Pedrera are also special buildings and places in Barcelona, so be sure not to miss out on any of these. If you are especially interested, a guided tour can help you out seeing the most important within a short period of time, and there are also guided tours focusing especially on the works and the heritage of Gaudi.
We wish you a pleasant stay in Barcelona!
