Ola from the Adam Kaupert Barcelona travel blog! Did you know that the famed artist Picasso grew up in Barcelona, Spain? He not only was raised here but spent much of his youth in Barcelona. The city has such a rich history that it is crucial to come prepared with a plan of action. It can be easy to get swept up when you’re surrounded by hundreds of years of history.
Don’t get me wrong, Barcelona is a large city but is very walkable and many of the most popular attractions can be accessed easily by foot and are relatively close to each other. The city of Barcelona also offers bike rental which is agreat option if you want to get around efficiently. There are some great parks here too so weather permitting you can stop and soak in the sun and culture if you desire. Some of the best parks include the Park de Joan Miroand the Parc de la Ciutadella. If you have the time take a short ride to the Montjuïc Mountain. It offers some spectacular views and is never very busy I’m told. Here you can also check out some now defunct structures that are relics of the Olympic that were held in Barcelona nearly 30 years ago and are symbols of Olympic excess.
