Have you ever fancied going to Barcelona? My friend insisted this was our next city break because of COVID we never got there for her 30th birthday. I fell in love with this city! The food, the architecture, the people, honestly, I wished I could have stayed for longer.

We stayed 3 nights in the Gothic Quarter and experienced a church service outside the Gothic Cathedral, toured around La Sagrada Familia, 2 hour walking tour with a local, a market and a coastline cruise. I enjoyed everything and learnt so much about the history of this beautiful city. However my favourite part was the walking tour with a local, were taken to several places around Barcelona and told amazing "stories" and facts about the different locations. I didn't know Picasso was supposed to be a womaniser! We were also suggested places to eat and drink what weren't "tourist hot spots".

For food I highly suggest trying Restaurant Galu, an amazing Italian, the duck ravioli was simply the best pasta dish I've ever had. Also restaurant Momo had amazing food, I had the Chicken Adobado Skewers, no words can describe how amazing they were! My friend is vegetarian and loved her dishes too from both restaurants! I would suggest booking for both restaurants as both quite small places and they got very popular.

The metro is really easy to use with only a little help from Google maps and we got a 72 hour metro for around 27 euros.

Let me know your thoughts on Barcelona because I will be visiting again, soon!
