Although it is ideal to visit with the family or your partner, Barcelona is a city to enjoy with your friends. The leisure time offer, cultural activities and an infinity of bars and restaurants of excellent quality plus fashion and complements makes this the ideal destination to unwind.
November is a perfect month to improvise a trip with friends so if you are planning a last minute break at a Petit Palace hotel in Barcelona, keep reading because today we will tell which are the best places to visit with your group of friends.
The official meeting place for groups travelling together to Barcelona is without a doubt, Plaza Catalunya. In this central square you need to take a strong coffee to get you started on your way to Las Ramblas, where you can do some shopping and take your first amusing selfies with flowers and stalls selling postcards in the background.
Las Ramblas not only takes us to unique buildings such as the Palau Güell but it is also near to the impressive Barrio Gótico de Barcelona, one of the four neighbourhoods that form the city and a place with beautiful narrow streets and amazing architecture.
In this spectacular neighbourhood not only can you visit the Plaza Real (Royal Square), the Portal del Angel (Angel’s gate), Casa Marti or the old Jewish quarter (in Catalan “El Call“), but you can also visit many of the charming shops, from cake shops to fashion boutiques where you can choose from world famous labels or other smaller shops offering brilliant local designers.
Once you have enjoyed the original gloom typical of this area, we recommend that you fill your stomach at the Boqueria Market, one of those places in the Condal City that has maintained its original charm and always surprises.
In “la Boqueria” you can buy fruit and vegetables and enjoy a very cold beer and some of the local products at the multiple “tapas” bars such as the famous Quim Restaurant or the authentic Bar Pintxo, one of the most popular for its gastronomic offer and enjoyable treatment of their clients.
The final ending of this express visit to Barcelona with friends could be in the always agreeable Parque Güell, one of the principal works of Gaudi and a unique place to enjoy the best views of the authentic and beautiful Barcelona.
