    Some of these sound like so much fun, but not sure I’d want to go to Barcelona to chase pigeons. Hardly a “must do” activity, and if I wanted to I could easily do that in Chicago.

    I like how your post is more pictures and fewer words. It really captures the essence of the city despite the minimal words used. I haven’t yet been to Barcelona but it’s definitely happening next year. Thanks for sharing these suggestions, will bookmark them definitely!

    Barcelona is my absolute favourite European city (so far, I’ve not visited them all hehe), so it’s great to see some of the things I’ve done make the list. Park Guell is beautiful, as is the Sagrada Familia 🙂 x
