Visiting a new place, does for me not necessarily mean I need to see all the historical places like museums and churches. They are often very touristic and very crowded, I therefore feel they loose their charm.
No, put me on a sidewalk cafe, on a little market place or on a bike – where I can watch the people around the city, feel the culture and taste the food.
We biked and walked around Barcelona. On a bike you can get to see more places in shorter time + it is a great exercise 🙂
Visit Mercat de Santa Caterina – it is an indoor market place with fresh produce, more locals and less tourists even though it is located in the city center. It is a good alternative to La Boqeria ⇓
We stayed at NH Collection Podium…⇓
