A well-known tourist visit portal says:
“Barcelona has no limits but the calendar, does.”
There are so many things to see and do in Barcelona throughout the year that what we need is time, and summer is a key date of tourist activities.
Less than 30 minutes from Sitges, the big city offers us unique opportunities to know the origins and traditions of our culture as well as visit the most emblematic places of our city or try something new of our, always in transformation, Mediterranean diet.
The new concept of routes to know the city proposes several depending on the weather, so, for example we can find a route of a single day, of two or several days.
What to see in Barcelona in a single day.
In order not to get tired and get to visit a good number of places of interest, it is very convenient to buy some tickets to move with the Tourist Bus of Barcelona.
If we get up a little early, we can take the 9 o’clock bus in the Plaza Catalunya, and choose the northern route (blue) that will allow us to enter the best streets of the city.
In the Passeig de Gràcia, between the streets Consell de Cent and Aragó, we will find the houses Lleó Morera, Amatller and Batlló, three jewels of modernist architecture built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Antoni Gaudí, respectively.
No one who passes near these enclaves is indifferent, it is like visiting part of a museum in the middle of public roads.
A little further up, on the corner of Provença Street, is the appreciated Casa Milà, the famous Pedrera, also by Antonio Gaudí and whose undulating surface can evoke the waves in the waves of the sea. Beyond the Passeig de Gràcia, we approach the most representative work of Gaudí: the Sagrada Família, a world in which time has stopped and an architectural work of international prestige. Later, in Avda. Gaudí, the Modernist Recinte de Sant Pau, the most outstanding work of Lluís Domènech i Muntaner, opens before us. We could stop our eyes in this beautiful place throughout the day, and photograph its innumerable details, but it is time to eat and we need to rest to regain strength.
Lunchtime is a valuable opportunity to comment on everything we have seen and lived, share photographs and some events. It is possible that at that time we become aware of what it means to live in or near the city of Barcelona, as in Sitges.
Our real estate agency, Fincas La CLAU is pleased to offer houses and flats from our offices in Barcelona and Sitges to find what we are looking for and select our next home from hundreds of examples scattered throughout the Catalan geography. Maybe a flat near the sea in the cozy city of Sitges or a house in the center of the cosmopolitan Ciudad Condal.
The offer is an abundant palette of prices, and very attractive features, all with great financing facilities and advice from our offices of Fincas La CLAU, the key to your happiness.
After a comforting break, perhaps the time has come to continue our visit. It is very convenient that we bring water to be well hydrated and acquire a picturesque straw hat to protect us from the sun, the best photographs and video are taken from the first floor of the Tourist Bus, which is completely convertible.
RESET THE ROUTE
We review our route plan and itineraries and observe that an interesting option is to select the South (red) route of the Barcelona Bus Turístic that will lead us to the magical mountain of Montjuïc. When we enter Avenida Maria Cristina, the unmistakable silhouette of the National Palace will open before us, which is also the headquarters of the National Museum of Art of Catalonia, one of the main and most visited museums in Barcelona.
In this mythical place so appreciated by the people of Barcelona; We will also find other places of interest such as Fundació Miró or CaixaForum among others. Further forward and overlooking the Mediterranean is the Pavilion Mies Van der Rohe, it is the most representative contribution of the artist as a legacy to the city, we will also reach the doors of the endearing Poble Espanyol with its special architecture, gastronomic offer and evocation to The ancient artisans. Then we arrive at the Olympic ring, with some of the most emblematic scenarios that were part of the 1992 Olympic Games: the Palau Sant Jordi, the Lluís Companys Stadium or the Picornell pools; buildings and facilities that played a relevant role in the Olympiad.
Are we going to have a snack before resuming a third stage that will transport us to the sunset in one of the most attractive and visited cities in Europe?
