Non-touristy things to do in Barcelona

My husband and I will be spending a few days in Barcelona, but we want to experience authentic Barcelona, not touristy- Barcelona. Any advice as to places to see, great restaurants or things to do that are not full of tourists?

    You can't miss La Boqueria Market. Pinotxo especially.

    La Boqueria

    Also head to Quimet & Quimet for montaditos and an extensive vermouth selection.

    Pinotxo

    Non-touristy in Barcelona can be a challenge and is near impossible.

    I would recommend checking out the following restaurants: Con Gracia (surprise menu), Codium, Casa Mari y Rufo [do not be scared, the food is amazing], Pla Restaurant, El Quim de la Boqueria (it is touristy but I still have breakfast there when I go to the market because the food is good) and Els Tres Porquets is also very good.


    Otherwise, do the touristy stuff ... El Born, Barri Gòtic, Sagrada Família etc. No sense in avoiding it.

    Hi Lauren!

    Barcelona

    Barcelona is the perfect choice to spend some days and get inspired!

    Three things I would recommend.

    1. La Caseta del Migdia for a BBQ place that disconnects. Attention, only weekends and public holidays.

    2. Celler Cal Marino has the perfect Vermut and not really many tourists... (whats Vermut? --> “Vermouth is a thing you do on Sundays, after Mass and before lunch.” read the full story on WashingtonPost)

    3. Check the schedule of 2014 edition of "Music als Parcs" - i.e. free concerts in public parks. There are many concerts. Sorry the schedule is only in Catalan, but times and descriptions are pretty readable. Most of the concerts start around 8 PM. Link Programm & their Twitter feed.

    Need more ideas, I have a full book of them... check my homepage #BCN - by locals.

    Enjoy Barcelona, Jahn
