18 (Free or Inexpensive) Things to Do in Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain (B)

Barcelona is my favorite city in the world. There, I’ve said it. I think I’ve delayed writing this post because not enough people realize how amazing Barcelona is, and a selfish part of me wants it to stay that way. Is that terrible?

It is a city of gorgeous beaches, rich culture, warm people, and some of the coolest architecture in the world. On top of that, it is filled with world-class restaurants and healthy eating options. Join me to see some of the amazing things to do in Barcelona!

You’ll see why. There is a pier where kids (and adults!) can jump off into the cool water. There is lively music.
