13. Walk on top of a former bullring
The man who transformed the Centre Pompidou in Paris turned Las Arenas, Barcelona’s central bullring, into a futuristic multi-use center. The architecture inside is fascinating, but the real reason to visit is up on the roof: the circular promenade grants a breathtaking 360-degree view of the city. Do it for the Insta.
14. Gobble pinchos in Poble-sec
Tapas-hopping on a Sunday afternoon is what all the cool kids do, and Calle Blai in particular becomes an eater’s paradise. Stroll the pedestrian street while eating your way through bite-sized culinary delights, all for about €1 each.
For the perfect selfie of you floating over the city, hop in this cable car that soars from Port Vell at Barceloneta beach up to the top of Montjuic -- Barcelona’s own mini-mountain. The views are great for wooing a date, or even just for wooing yourself.
The gardens overlooking Barcelona at the top of Montjuic are absolutely gorgeous. Bring your love interest, a spitfire roasted chicken from a street stall, and a bottle of cava, and live the glamorous life on a picnic blanket in the park. Or, y’know, continue wooing yourself.
