What to see A stroll around the fascinating districts is the best way to get to know the city. On Paseo de Grácia avenue, you will find amazing buildings designed by architect Antonio Gaudí, such as Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. In the Gothic Quarter you will see monuments such as the Cathedral and the Government Palace, as well as charming squares such as Plaza del Rey and Plaza de Sant Jaume. The Ribera district is home to the beautiful Santa María del Mar church and the stunning Palacio de la Música Catalana concert hall. The famous Rambla, lined with street artists and flower stalls, takes you down to the sea, passing by such landmarks as the Liceo Theatre, Güell Palace and the city's most famous market, La Boquería. Be sure to visit the Camp Nou football stadium, which has the largest capacity of any stadium in Europe, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). Beaches and active tourism Along the seafront promenade you'll find the urban beach known as La Barceloneta, which in turn leads to two other beaches: San Sebastiá beach and Paseo Marítimo beach. As well as urban beaches, you'll be able to enjoy water activities at its marinas and play golf on its seashore golf courses. Gastronomy Typical dishes such as “butifarra amb mongetes” (Catalan pork sausage served with butter beans) and the famous “pa amb tomàquet” (bread spread with tomato and olive oil). Festivities On World Book Day, Barcelona celebrates Sant Jordi (St. George's Day), when the city is teeming with roses and books.
