Barcelona

What are the best local (ie: non tourist) neighbourhoods to explore

Hi - for an upcoming trip to Barcelona we are looking for interesting local neighbourhoods to explore. We have been to Barcelona before and have enjoyed the main tourist attractions. 

For this trip we have the benefit of a week in the city, and are looking for a more local experience. Advice related to neighbourhoods to walk through, to local restaurants, great views or scenery, shopping, and places to sit and have a coffee or read a book would be appreciated. Thanks.

Definitely Graciais your place! Explore its 'alternative' non-mainstream plazas and squares: Plaça de la Vila de GràciaPlaça de la RevolucióPlaça del DiamantPlaça del Sol. You'll see plenty of small shops, artisans, 'slow-food', breweries. The recommended streets would be: Carrer de VerdiCarrer del Torrent de l'OllaCarrer Gran de Gràcia well, best option is 'getting lost'.

Also, the barri de Santsis also a non-tourist area. With good local restaurants, coffeeshops and bars. Can't miss Plaça d'OscaPlaça de SantsEspaña Industrial Park

Anyway, 1hour and a half north of Barcelona, you have the beautiful city of GironaWhich I recommend you strongly. (maybe you heard about it from Game of Thrones filming location). Can't miss the Cathedral of GironaJardins de la DevesaThe River Cafè GironaCarrer del Riu Onyar

Enjoy!

Hi blank logger,


I would suggest to walk around Les Corts in order to see a non touristy spot. Drop by Plaça de la Concòrdia and have a drink in the Fragments Cafè.

For more, please check my three day itinerary, it´s free to download on #BCN - by locals


Cheerz, Jahn

btw, thats the patio of Fragments:

El Carmelo, Barcelona is a good place, was a risky neigborhood but now have the last cheap spanish tapas, is very close to park Güell.

For example this one: https://goo.gl/maps/wLxD9oFm8KS2

Is very busy on weekends, locals the most
