For an evening walk in Barcelona
Because the sights are nice, but Barcelona does not turn off the lights early at night. In Barcelona, you will enjoy a spectacle in the Montjuic fountain, walk-in its alleys and have a drink after music in the city centre. Placa Espanya and specifically the Arena shopping centre invite you for a drink with a view, while La Rambla invites you for tasting in wine bars and chic clubs.
For the art of churros
