What to do in Barcelona in winter?
Barcelona is a very pleasant city in terms of temperature, but when the winter comes and the cold weather is hard, it is time to look for plans and activities to do. The sun is no longer as strong as in the summer, but what can you do when the days are getting shorter and the leaves fall and the wind blows? Very easy! Do everything we don’t do in summer. I assure you that we have many options…
Whenever we travel we tend to go to the typical places of interest, and little attention is paid to the places frequented by the locals or the activities they carry out. Here is one of the most original plans to make when Barcelona is cold: Visit these markets and local fairs.
There are all kinds of markets, from clothing, antiques and there are also gastronomic.
Here you will find everything from vintage clothes to the most bizarre objects you can imagine, food, drinks and even DJs playing music to these cold days. You could also find some other hairdresser, styling hair, with the rhythm of electronic music.
Barcelona offers a wide variety of music to enjoy without spending a lot of money. Every day of the week, a good live band can be heard in a bar in the city. Jazz, blues, rock, flamenco, or traditional Catalan rumba bands invade the bars of the most typical neighborhoods of Barcelona. The city does not sleep and invites you to enjoy it.
You can’t leave Barcelona without trying the classic churros with hot chocolate. The weather is ideal for this! You just need to know where to go. In the Gothic Quarter you will find the most famous churro bars in Barcelona. These bars have been serving them for many years, and the quality hasn’t changed… Don’t forget to order a cup of hot chocolate, and soak the churro in the chocolate. It’s tradition! Try the churros in our Barcelona Family Fun Tour!!!
You can not miss a visit to the most important museums of the city, like the Sagrada Familia, by the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. Or important buildings of the Catalan Modernism, like the Palau de la Musica, among others. Even if it is cold, rainy or the weather is not inviting, visiting these jewels cannot be out of your itinerary. Find the Skip-the-Line tickets to Sagrada Familia in our Loving Gaudi
Barcelona’s promenade is an ideal place to make the most of the sunset. With a very pleasant atmosphere, full of life, families, children, dogs, sportsmen, the Barceloneta Beach is the place chosen by locals and not so locals to spend their weekend evenings. And what better than to drink good Catalan wine, looking at the sea and receiving the sun.
