The truth is that in a city as popular as Barcelona, it’s not that easy to find a place that is not overcrowded by tourists. Luckily, there still a number of great spots that you won’t find in Barcelona’s travel brochures. Whether you are visiting the capital of Catalonia with a yacht charter as a part of a sailing vacation or you are traveling around Spain with a car, these hidden gems in Barcelona will definitely blow your mind away.
If you wish to lose yourself in a labyrinth like the ones you have seen in the movies, check out the Horta Labyrinth in Barcelona. The construction of this 820-yard long labyrinth was ordered by Marquis Joan Antoni Desvalls of d’Ardena in the 18th century. Keep in mind that only 750 visitors are allowed to enter the labyrinth daily and the tickets cost around $3 per person.
Gothic Quarter with its cobbled alleyways and stunning architecture has definitely a lot to offer in terms of sightseeing. There is a little corner that many people don’t know about, a medieval patio at Calle Paradis 10. Inside the ancient patio, visitors will see four columns which used to form a part of the famous Temple of Agusto. These columns are over 2,000 years old and definitely worth checking out.
One of the oldest public libraries in the city, Biblioteca Pública Arús is definitely one of the best-hidden gems in Barcelona. The rooms here are lined top to bottom with thousands of books and the library even has a small Statue of Liberty.
Situated inside a modernist building in the heart of Les Corts neighborhood in Barcelona, Cafeteria of the Centre Cívic Can Deu features a large outdoor terrace and offers a nice selection of drinks and local dishes at affordable prices. The food here is delicious and there are not a lot of tourists around.
Take a break from your beach vacation in Barcelona and head out to Carmel Bunkers for amazing views of the city. These former wartime bunkers are located on the foothills that surround the city and are an ideal place to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city center.
