(More) This guide has been made trying to transmit how I'd like to discover Barcelona myself. I would like to see all its amazing highlights but I also know that those areas tend to be overcrowded and that I would need to escape from time to time to relax and get to feel a little bit the local side of the city. Then, I would need advice from someone from Barcelona, like me ;), to find local restaurants and bars to avoid the huge number of tourist traps where many tourists end up seating. If you follow my routes and advices I'm sure you'll fall in love with the city. Please, contact me if you have doubts while you read it. (Less)
