Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There are so many great reasons to visit this historic city. If you’re traveling on a budget or looking to have a much cheaper trip, however, you may want to know what options you have that are free.
Across the city, there are a variety of options to choose from. Whether it’s the natural beauty of the city, an appreciation of the religious and historical roots of this location, or perhaps some of the great cultural experiences that you can take part in, we’re taking a look at 10 free things you can do on a trip to Barcelona.
10. PARK GUELL
Gaudi is one of the most influential architects and artists in Barcelona’s history. As part of his career, he helped to develop the most famous park in the city. The maze of trees and bushes have been specifically designed to create a peaceful environment away from the city.
There are some incredible structures in the park, including various bridges that take on the Gaudi style. The architect’s own house is also featured in the park and while you have to pay to enter it’s still a cool feature to look at, as the house itself has an incredibly unique design.
The beaches of Barcelona are truly beautiful. With luxurious sand and a very welcoming sea, it makes sense that you have a completely free day at the beach; especially since the heat can affect even the citizens of the city.
The beach is always busy but there’s so much room that it never feels overly crowded. There are options for lockers and you can take part in various water sports. The walk along the beach is very peaceful and it’s common to see roller skaters doing various tricks. There’s even a free gym on the beach and a variety of bars and restaurants.
8. LAS RAMBLAS
Another completely free location in the city is Las Ramblas. The iconic street is home to some of the best restaurants and shops in the city. The atmosphere and culture down the street is second to none and represents everything great about Barcelona.
It’s a very touristy area but it’s also a street that a lot of the locals enjoy. It also has some great street food from various vans and there’s often live music or other performances and parades on the street. Plus, there’s a number of free attractions and museums you can visit based on the history of the city, down Las Ramblas.
