Things to do in Barcelona, Spain!

Barcelona is the capital and the most populous city of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid.
Barcelona is today one of the world's leading tourist, economic and cultural centers, and its influences in commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities will be memorable for you and your family .
Barcelona is a child-friendly place and there is a lot that kids will enjoy. For a start there's the Zoo in Parc Ciutadella, the zoo is large and will provide a days easy entertainment for kids and adults. Or there is the aquarium which is the largest in Europe and is always fun.
Something else kids might enjoy is the Cable Car that runs from Barceloneta beach over to Montjuic. Again it's not something for those scared of heights but it is fun and you get spectacular views of the city.

Wander Down Las Ramblas
Las Ramblas is Barcelona's most famous street. Check out the street performers, take a look at the interesting architecture, see a show, or stop for a beer and soak up the vibrant atmosphere.Though much of the buildings on Las Ramblas are taken up by commercial stores at ground level, a lot of them have some impressive architecture one or two storeys up. My favorite is the Chinese-influenced architecture about the Sabadell bank.

Walk Around the Gothic Quarter
The Barri Gotic is Barcelona's most famous district. Its narrow streets charm all visitors to the city. My favorite streets are those between Placa Reial and the seafront. Barcelona is split up into a number of districts. Each district ('barrio' in Spanish and 'barri' in Catalan) is quite distinct from the others. Explore them all to get a real idea of Barcelona.

El Raval

In addition to shops and restaurants, El Raval is home to the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and the Centre De Cultura Contemporanea De Barcelona (CCCB). Its streets aren't as charismatic as those of Barri Gotic, but its trendy shops and restaurants (especially the restaurants) rival those on the other side of Las Ramblas.

Casa Mila Barcelona
Casa Mila across the road from Casa Batllo is not as colourful as Casa Batllo but it has an interesting history.A rich businessman liked the Casa Batllo so much that he hired Gaudi to construct a building on the vacant block across the road. This building turned out to be less conventional than the Casa Batllo. Every room is irregular. The walls and ceilings differ from one another. In fact the whole building is constructed on pillars and arches together with the use of steel.

Nightlife : Bars and Clubs
That is what we all come here for (apart from shopping, Gaudi, beaches and the sun.) Barcelona has a very good nightlife, simply because there are lots of foreigners, students, and tourists. You can find every kind of night club you are looking for, from jazz to tourist techno trash. Here are a few suggestions about some areas to visit.

Night Clubs
For clubbing Ibiza of course. More continental will be Barcelona ;March or any month is good for nightlife.

Danzatoria: A pleasant dance floor with garden
Danzatoria is located up on the hill of Tibidabo. This former villa has been transformed into one of the best night clubs in Barcelona. Various floors with four different ambiences and musical styles that make it accessible for everybody that loves to dance.

Barcelona is a popular tourist destination, with millions of tourist’s visiting the city every year and this city plays host to a large number of festivals, events and conferences. If you are planning to visit Barcelona, Book Your”> .
