The weather is usually pleasant, the number of tourists manageable and the city humming.
Maybe autumn is the perfect time to visit Barcelona with less heat, fewer tourists and the city’s biggest street party, “Festes de la Mercè”, on September 24.
The best place to start visit Barcelona is “Las Ramblas”, a pedestrian street with dozen of outdoor cafès; here you can watch people go by, stroll, or simply ... More relax.
“Las Ramblas”, is a boulevard of about 2 kilometers in length, between Plaza de Catalunya and the port. You will find people of any age, shoe shine boys, small stands selling flowers and vegetables, street theater, big businesses, galleries, cafeterias, terraces as well as some of the best theater of the city.
While there you must visit the “Barrio Gòtico”, in the gothic quarter, one of the oldest and most interesting parts of Barcelona. At the square of “Placa Nova” you can see the “Palacio de la Generalitat”, and “Palacio del Ayuntamiento” (town hall).
At “Plaza del Rei”, there are the “Palacio Real Mayor” and the wonderful “Gothic Cathedral”: built between 1298 and 1450, the facade and the cupola, with a height of 90 meters, are impressive works from the 19th century.
The best known monuments in the city, are the great cathedral “Sagrada Familia”, “Parc Gϋell” and “Palau Gϋell”, all created by the brilliant architect Antonì Gaudì.
Among the best-known recipes for which Barcelona is famed, are their well known stews, like “la escudella i carn d'olla”, made of vegetables, rice, noodles and potatoes.
Fish specialities in Barcelona consist of "Zarzuela", a dish of the same name like the Spanish operetta and made of cuttlefish, mussels and prawn. Typical desserts are “Crema Catalana”, and the “Postre del Musico” ("dessert of the musician").
Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with mild, cool winters and warm summers.
