A Perfect Day In Barcelona



9.00am

La Rambla
Get an early start on La Rambla to enjoy it before the crowds arrive. Pick up your newspaper from a newsstand then pop into La Boqueria market – at its most colourful in the morning – for a proper Catalan breakfast like baby squid and poached eggs at El Quim (for more information, click here )


10.30am

Gothic Quarter
Across La Rambla is the Gothic Quarter. Meander through its shady, narrow lanes and palm-filled courtyards. Explore the history of the old town at the City History Museum (MUHBA) or break for coffee in the diminutive Meson del Café on Llibreteria.


12 noon

Santa Maria del Mar church
On the other side of Via Laietana is the El Born district. Glimpse the breathtaking interior of Santa Maria del Mar, or sip una copa de cava on the terrace of La Vinya del Senyor (for more information, click here ) and admire the church facade.


1.30pm

Lunch time
Get into the local rhythm and have a menú del dia , three courses at remarkably good prices, in a neighbourhood bar like Rodrigo (for more information, click here ) in Argenteria, or around the Passeig del Born. Alternatively walk 10 minutes to Barceloneta, for a paella by the sea at Can Majó (for more information, click here ).


3.30pm

Siesta
A gentle stroll along the Passeig Marítim towar
