Tibidabo and the Montjuic cable cars are often thought of as the go-to places when it comes to getting the best view of Barcelona. However, neither of these sights really give you that breath-taking experience or exceptional holiday snap to remember fondly afterwards.
Many people flock to Barcelona every year to soak up a bit of sun by the glorious beaches on offer. However due to this fact many of the central beaches become crowded and jam-packed with sun worshippers making the experience all very lacklustre.
Looking to try some Spanish delicacies and searching for a sweet tipple to compliment your meal, many will no doubted reach for overpriced Sangria as they take a breather on La Rambla. However, if you really want to blend in with the locals, then this is not the drink and location for you.
No visit to Barcelona would be complete without seeing some of Gaudí's finest masterpieces. However, due to this fact many attractions suffer from overcrowding and pricing, a recent problem for buildings such as Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.
Shopaholics often flock to La Rambla and Passeig de Gràcia for a spot of shopping in some of Barcelona's biggest names, amongst the hustle and bustle of the inner city. Or if they are looking for an experience a little quirkier then they go for a rummage round Encants market. Unfortunately, we don't believe it lives up to its reputation with car boot finds and worn out items more at home here than the rare gems you might have been hoping for.
