First time in Spain, and i would like to know how many days is the ideal to stay there.
P.S. I'm planning to go there in the middle of September.
Thank you in advance ❤
I agree with Sandra's comment, Barcelona is a great city and you can easily spend a week there with lots to keep you busy. If you are short on time you could see the main sights (Basílica de la Sagrada Família, Cathedral of Barcelona, Las Ramblas, Gaudí Bar, Montserrat) in 4 days. Train is a very accessible way to get around Spain but some distance can be very long requiring an overnight so check that first if you want to visit some surrounding areas. Some places nearby I would recommend are Sitges, Tarragona, Province of Girona and the Costa Brava. Happy travels!

Hi, we've been to Barcelona often, it's easy for us living in France. I don't know what you're interested in, or if you'll be traveling elsewhere after that, but I would stay 3 to 4 days in this city. It's enough time to visit the main attractions. It's not a big city and you will have seen everything. Hope this helps!
Great idea you had! Barcelona is such a lively and beautiful city. I would recommend about 6-7 days!
Just strolling around the attractions and it would take you a few days. Don't forget to explore the Guell park or the botanical garden. Enjoy the sun on the beach or just relax on the Port Vell esplanade. And don't forget to visit the architectural beauties by Antoni Gaudi.
In my opinion you cannot have too many days in Barcelona. Get ready to fall in love. Plus easy to do some day trips by train. A week, minimum.
Ideal will be 10-14 days. It's enough to see the most interesting places.
We spent 3-4 days there on our honeymoon. We could easily have spent longer, but we did feel like we saw a good portion of the main sights during our time - Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Montjuic, the Catalan art museum, a Barcelona football match...that being said, there were other things we wanted to do that we ran out of time for. So at least 4?
at least 3 days (check my free guide over at #BCN - by locals. I would say you need to check Tibidabo for the overview, drink a Vermut in a bar in El Borne like the Bormuth and walk the shoreline Platja de Sant Sebastià for the inner city beach feeling. Have fun! Barcelona rulez, cheerz, Jahn

Hi! I think it depends on your needs. If you are going on summer so you both want to go to the beach some days and go around the city in the others you may need 6 or 7 days. If you just want to visit the artistic part of the city 4 or 5 days in my opinion are fine. Fort the most attractive places even 3 days are good.
You could spend a month in Barcelona and feel like you haven't seen it all. You'll certainly feel that you haven't had enough.
The answer to your question depends a lot on how you're traveling on this particular trip.
If you're arriving early in the day, and plan to hit the ground running, I'd say give yourself three to four days, minimum, before you move on.
It would help to have a plan, however vague it may be. Between now and September
One last suggestion (I promise!); if your time in Barcelona is part of a larger trip, that is you're visiting Barcelona in the middle of your travels, you've probably been doing your fair share of hurrying about. It might be a nice idea for you, and your overstimulated psyche to spend a day, or even half a day at one of Barcelona's beaches. I've always felt they're highly underrated.
Feel free to message me if I can be of any further help.
