Shows and Things To Do
On one end, the well known Sagrada Familia Basilica is still being constructed, a church designed by the hands of Antoni Gaudi right until he died. During the holiday season in December, the area in front of La Sagrada is bustling with people shopping around the Christmas market, though there are other products available, and yummy food! A stroll around the pond with an incredible church in view, and a fresh crepe in hand is a must on your to-do list for this amazing city.
Moving right down, just about to the bottom of where Eixample ends is the PlacadeCatalunya, great for grabbing a coffee, meeting a friend, and enjoying some sunshine! From there, one ride on the blue N11 bus, or a 15 minute stroll will bring you right to the Arc deTriomf. Built in 1888 and now a city landmark, it was carefully designed and built as an entryway into the World Exhibition.
Continue your walk under the Arc and you’ll discover a long and wide pedestrian-only street, leading to a beautiful and vast park; Parcde la Ciutadella, with a gorgeous fountain, green grass and benches to relax. The Barcelona Zoo is behind the Parcde la Ciutadella, great for entertaining younger travelers or animal lovers, and it’s open every day of the year!
