With almost a year to plan and do research, my trip to Barcelona was still one of the most off the beaten path trips ever. A lot of exploring was done after purchasing a two-day Hola BCN travel card and taking the metro.

I love looking at architecture when traveling and Antoni Gaudi and architecture go hand in hand. From the visiting the Gothic Quarter to strolling down Passeig de Gràcia, the views around the city are breathtaking. Here are ten must-see places if you plan on going for a day or two.

Take a Day trip to Montserrat 

I loved my Sunday in Montserrat and even took a hike up to Sant Jeroni. If you’re into hiking, seeing beautiful countryside views and learning a little more about the monastery, it’s a great experience.

    • My aunt said she loved Barcelona so much and the flight was really good so I booked it. I didn’t realize that she loved it so much because she went to school for architecture. Very beautiful sites.

    • I want to explore more of Europe especially the UK since I have family there and saw results from my ancestry DNA test. The architecture is so beautiful. You’ll love it.

  1. I envy all my friends (and now, you lol lol jk!) who’ve gotten to go to Barcelona! I had started making plans to go with a uni friend last year but life got in the way. It’s one of my dream places though! Sigh! So stunning!
