Barcelona for Beginners

Barcelona for Beginners, Barcelona, Spain (B)

Situated in the north-east coast of Spain, Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya that has its own unique culture, cuisine, and traditions. First-time visitors to Barcelona will be blown by the spectacular architecture, dynamic atmosphere, vibrant and friendly locals, and mouth-watering and delectable food. My first trip to Barcelona certainly wouldn’t be my last. Barcelona can be fully explored in a week or so, and you can opt for a longer trip to visit neighboring towns like Montserrat and Girano, among others. It was really easy to get around the city and most of the attractions are walking distance or a couple of metro stops away from one another.

If you don’t anticipate making multiple trips per day on the metro or bus, you can skip buying the unlimited Barcelona card that costs €20 per person and lasts for only two days. Instead, get the T10 card that has 10 trips stored in one card at any of the ticket machines in metro stations. It costs €10.20 and more than one person can use the same card.
