Where to stay in Barcelona:


Barcelona is a multicultural city: it is the place of museums, art and history, all in the midst of the beach, bars and many sights. When staying just a few days in the city, the golden rule is to stay in the downtown area. The most famous avenue of the city, Las Ramblas, divides the Gothic neighborhood and the Raval and it is close to all downtown sights. The Ciutat Vella is basically the Old Town, and it is divided into several areas: the Gothic Quarter, El Born, La Ribera, Sant Pere and La Rambla. If you are staying in this area, you will only need to take public transportation to get to the Holy Family, Park Güell and the Montjuic. Barceloneta is the beach neighborhood, which is where a mix of local families and tourists lies. In the restaurant of this area you will find some of the best seafood and paella in town. All city districts are served by metro and bus, making it easy to reach any place in town.
