Must-do's in Barcelona

You must do many things if you live and work in Barcelona. You should definitely experience the tour of Camp Nou once. The stadium tour gives a smashing impression of the club's rich history. Besides, you must have strolled along the Ramblas at least once. One of Barcelona's most famous streets is full of shops, terraces, coffee houses and a huge fresh food market: la Boqueria. This large and most famous fresh market in Spain is tucked away in a side street of the Ramblas. Definitely a must-do! A local also needs to take a trip to Guell park. There is a whole heap of Gaudí's works in the city, and they are worth checking out.

Important places and monuments

Top of the list, of course, is seeing the fantastic buildings Barcelona has to offer. Gaudí, a Catalan architect, made many of these splendours; his famous cathedral the Sagrada Família is a must-see! After a day of sightseeing, relax in one of Barcelona's clubs with a drink. But you can also grab a drink on Plaça Reial. If you live in Barcelona, get used to the fact that it is normal to have dinner around ten o'clock at night after a drink. Endless terraces, breathtaking fountains and various street performers will await you. That's what living and working in Spain has to offer you!
