Barcelona in July
Here are five amazing things to do in Barcelona in July
Enjoy a nice afternoon walking tour of the Ramblas and Barri Gotic, with very interesting Barcelonians who have been born and raised here, walking the streets, going to school here, and seeing most of the attractions since they were very young! These guides will give you an insight into a lot of the places in Barcelona, and you will go home a happy person! Please note that the tour is also wheelchair compatible.
This is a transportation hub at the centre of Barcelona, with a lot of shopping area. It is also said to be the third largest square in Spain, dividing the old and new Barcelona. Some of the famous roads it has include the Rambla, Passeig de Gracia, and the Rambla de Catalunya. Be prepared to be entertained when you visit this area, as it is full of lively people from different nationalities who mingle freely and are friendly.
Famed as one of the most amazing and beautiful Gothic churches of Spain, this building is full of gothic architecture, artistic glass windows, and a rich history. The church has regular music events from time to time, which are very interesting to watch. It is also a short distance from Museo Picasso, which you can see if you take a Picasso walking tour. Ladies are advised to cover their shoulders and knees while here.
4.) Casa Batllo
Another of Gaudi’s’ artistic and creative work; this jaw-dropping building is not only unique, but as exceptional and as bizarre as your imagination goes. Located at 43, the best way to understand it would be to take a Gaudi tour. From its ground floor to the rooms, you surely need to see everything here for yourself! It is located on Passeig de Gràcia, at the city centre, and might be a little expensive to get in at 20 Euros, but it will be worth every minute!
5.) Tapas at the Barri Gotic
With most tapas locations crowded and a bit noisy, you will be happy to try the tapas at Barri Gotic. I would especially recommend visiting the Taller de Tapas, busy with a bunch of activities and some tourists, for mouth watering tapas. This will be a memorable experience, as the tapas here are known as the best tapas in Barcelona!

Sightseeing in Barcelona in July
With the good weather, make it up to Sarria
After spending some time in Barcelona, you will begin to realize that most people walk to their destinations here, and you will probably start liking it, especially when the weather in Barcelona is almost perfect, like in July! Known as one of the most prosperous cities in Barcelona, situated in Tibidabo and home to some of the best hospitals and schools, it’s no wonder you do not need much motivation to visit this picturistic area. It is very close to the centre of the town, has traditional or village like personality to it, and amazing green areas where you can just sit and relax. The Sarria’s main square has Sardana dances on Sunday mornings, a book market on Saturdays, and an antique market on Fridays.
