After settling into your hotel in the center of Barcelona, nothing better than strolling through the city center and discovering the most important places of interest. Surely when you arrive you have already run into the Rambla of Barcelona, from here everything is close. You can start your visit in the Gothic Quarter, the oldest in Barcelona and where you can find the Cathedral of Barcelona and other points of interest such as the Pont del Bisbe, the Kiss Mural, the Basilica of Santa María del Pi, the Parish Church of Santa Ana, the Call neighborhood (old Jewish quarter), the Church of Sant Felip Neri and its Shrapnel holes in the façade, the Plaza Real and the Plaza San Jaime. Although it seems that there is a lot to see, the truth is that everything is within the same neighborhood and the distances are short, so you have plenty of time to enjoy all these monuments and eat something in the area since there are many options and varied. In the afternoon, it is a good time to go up Paseo de Gracia, the city's commercial thoroughfare where you can also find the Casa Batlló and la Pedrera or Casa Milà of the architect and Spanish genius, Antoni Gaudí, the greatest exponent of Catalan Modernism that permeates the entire city. Surely the beauty of its facades will impress you. At the end of the Rambla you will also find the Plaza de Catalunya, the city's landmark, and the Monument to Christopher Columbus, next to the Old Port. To end the day, our recommendation is that you look for a good place to have dinner and experience the Barcelona atmosphere. This city is wonderful and has options for everyone.
The Barcelona - El Prat airport is very well connected to the city center so you won't have any problems getting to your hotel. Here we give you a list with all the options to transfer you from the Barcelona Josep Tarradellas-El Prat airport to the center of Barcelona.
Today you will get to know Montserrat, its abbey and the famous Moreneta (the black virgin of Montserrat).

If it is your last day in Barcelona, you can take the opportunity to visit the Boquería Market and drink some of its delicious freshly squeezed natural juices. If you have time and you haven't been yet, you can visit the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell or go to Port Vell, (Old Port) and stroll along its lively promenade and Maremagnum shopping center. Here you will find many restaurants, shops, bars and cafes where you can hang out and do some shopping before heading home.
To get to the Sagrada Familia, which is quite far from the center, it is advisable to use public transport as this will save you time and effort. The cheapest options are the metro and the bus, although our recommendation is always the metro because it is faster by avoiding city traffic.
If you choose to go bymetro, from Paseo de Gracia station (very close to Plaza Catalunya) take line L2, the purple one. You will arrive at the Sagrada Familia in a few minutes, directly and without transfers.
If you take the bus, bus 50 is the fastest. The stop is turning right onto Gran Vía. You will have to get off at the València-Lepant stop.
Another less economical option is the taxi. You will easily recognize them by their black and yellow colors. It is not the cheapest way to get around the city but it is the most comfortable and easy.
With this excursion you will discover Montserrat, a mountain with spectacular views and a unique Natural Park for its rock formations. On this mountain is the Montserrat Abbey, which has almost a thousand years of history and which houses the Virgin of Montserrat, popularly known as "La Moreneta" (the Black Virgin), the patron saint of Catalonia. In addition to visiting the church and the Virgin of Montserrat, you will enjoy a short audiovisual presentation in which you will be shown all aspects of life in the monastery. To finish, nothing better than doing it with a tasting of traditional liqueurs that are made in the abbey itself. Of course, you will have free time to explore Montserrat on your own.
