My adult daughter and I are going to Barcelona for 7 nights the last of March. It will be our first time to visit.
We'll be using public transportation only.
We're staying in the Gothic Quarter area.
We thought we would eat our main meal at lunch with menu del dia)
We are on a fairly tight budget.
We hope to minimize wait times and crowds by pre-purchasing any tickets we might need and visit early mornings at opening times.
Overall, we want to visit a few Gaudi sites, go on a Cava tour (I've read that the Recaredo is a good place to visit and a little more personal than the big Cava places), have some wonderful Spanish wines, explore the area and experience the culture, eat good seafood and tapas, and shop a little.
Here's a list of some things we thought looked interesting:
see street art (I found a map of a free walking tour)
Cava tastings (Recaredo?)
a walking tour
Parque del Laberint d'Horta (Labrinth)
Casa Botella (outside only)
Park Guell (free before 8am?)
Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau
Bunker del Carmel (view)
Barcelona Cathedral (early morning or late afternoon--I've read both are beautiful times?)
see other beautiful churches
see the beach and ocean
For a day trip possibly---
Would you have any feedback and/or suggestions---it would be appreciated!
After we decide what exactly we'd like to do/see, then I'll start work on an itinerary :)
