The fantastic weekend in Barcelona that nobody tells you about

Most of the thousands of readers who read the pages of our website every day are lovers of the city and many of them are fortunate enough to live in it.

Many of them often write to us with typical questions:

“I have two days to spend in Barcelona: what do you suggest I see?”

Answering this question might take a few hours … and of course the WEB is full of information on the subject. Therefore, we have decided to write this article about what would be interesting to see in Barcelona in a weekend and you would have never imagined.

Rambla del Poble Nou

It is not as famous as the Rambla de toda la vida, but it is certainly not without charm.

It is located in the neighborhood from which it takes its name, Poble Nou, and connects the Diagonal to the sea.

It is a street lined with beautiful modernist buildings, and rich in traditional stores and bars. Here you will find the Casino de la Aliança, headquarters of the socio-cultural life of the neighborhood since the end of the 19th century. Not to be missed

What to see in Barcelona in a weekend

Sant Pau Hospital

Many tourists pass through Barcelona and do not have the time to visit it and it is a pity because it is charming.

It was built thanks to a millionaire donation and the construction of this huge building began in the early twentieth century by the famous modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner.

The Bunkers of Carmel

It is a viewpoint from which you can see the entire city.

You will have 360º views. It is located at the top of the Turó de la Rovira in Carmel at an altitude of 262 meters.

The inhabitants of the area a few years ago enjoyed the little known views of the whole city of Barcelona, but gradually this iconic place of the city of Barcelona became known and today is one of the best viewpoints of Barcelona.

Sant Antoni Market

Barcelona is a city full of markets and one of the most iconic recently restored is the Sant Antoni market.

It is a food market that takes place inside a modernist building. It is perfect for a weekend visit because on Sundays there are stalls selling books, records or photos. Not to be missed.

Plaça de Prim

You’ll love it…. Very close to Marbella beach.

Plaza Prim is the most iconic square in the Poblenou neighborhood. It was built in 1851 and used to be a meeting place for fishermen and workers.

It is one of the few places in Barcelona that maintains the typical low houses of the seaside neighborhoods. You will love it.

We could go on with many more places because Barcelona is not only Rambla and Sagrada Familia, it is much more.

In one weekend you can do this and more.

The good thing about Barcelona is that it has excellent public transportation so if you come for a weekend the best thing to do is to stay maybe not in the center. There are many hotel chains such as B&B hotels in Barcelona that at very good prices allow you to have the city very close.
