Places to Visit in Barcelona...

Ciutat Vella: People who like to visit historical places would definitely spend much of their time in this district. Touring Barceloneta would take tourists to the times when war of Spanish Succession was fought. Barri Gòtic is a good place to know more about Romans and the city History Museum has some 2,000 year-old foundations. Travelers can find many small shops and local designers in a very happening sub-neighborhood of La Ribera, called Born. El Raval was known as a dark neighborhood until 1992, when the government demolished many old buildings to construct new ones and allow more natural light to this area. This place has an exciting nightlife and has plenty of immigrants.

Eixample: Designed during mid-nineteenth century, this quarter contains many modernist buildings. It has an affluent area called Quadrat d'Or which has several aesthetically designed homes. Tourists list this place among the top places to visit in Barcelona. Sagrada Família neighborhood is extremely vibrant and has a fascinating church called Sagrada Família Gothic Church. Esquerra de l'Eixample is home to some old buildings having different architectural styles. Having certain tall buildings such as TNC and Torre Agbar, Estació Del Nord and Glòries is also a place worth visiting. Gràcia i Park Güell: This region contains Antoni Gaudi's marvelous garden-city called Park Güell, which integrates excellent architecture into natural surroundings. A walk through narrow streets of this neighborhood would reveal a few bars and restaurants along with several markets selling delicious food. Horta & Guinardó: Located in north-east Barcelona, this area was developed during mid-twentieth century around its former settlement. Along with healthcare and sports facilities, this district has green spaces and its older sections have still retained their rural charm despite recent changes.

Les Corts i Pedralbes: The two neighborhoods of Les Corts and Pedralbes offer contrasting features. While the former is a symbol of urban development, the latter has greener spaces. The FC Barcelona stadium and Museu Del Fútbol Club Barcelona are great places to visit in Les Corts. Museu de les Arts Decoratives and Museu de Ceràmica in Pedralbes situated near former royal palace would also impress visitors to a great extent.

Tremendous developments have taken place over the past few years in this area, thereby raising the resident's standard of living.
