Visiting this city is a truly enriching trip. There is so much to visit, from la Sagrada Familia, to park Güel and las Ramblas, however, beyond it’s most popular attractions the city has much to offer and can satisfy all sorts of interests. I believe that to truly experience Barcelona and its culture one must fully immerse itself in the local lifestyle .So without further ado here are 3 ways you can live the local lifestyle.

1 Enjoy the best view at Bunkers del Caramel.

Located in one of the highest spots of the city Bunker boasts a stunning 360 panoramic view. It was created as an anti-air base during the Civil War in 1937, thus Bunker really gives a good taste of Barcelona’s fascinating history. This location is ideal for picnics and most locals often bring along beers or wine. You will be amazed at the lack of tourists visiting this spot and surely appreciate distancing yourself from the crowds.

3 Visit the markets in Barcelona.

Barcelona is an excellent shopping destination, however many tourists limit themselves to simply visiting El Corte Inglés and the market on las Ramblas, however it doesn’t end there. Barcelona has numerous markets of all sizes scattered around the city. In these markets you can find anything from food to clothing. One of the most famous markets la Boqueira which backdates to the 13th century. La Boqueira is one of Europe’s largest markets and offers a vast selection of fruit, meat and fish of all sorts moreover, tourists not only browse the local products. Finally they can have a taste at the well-known restaurant El Quim de la Boqueira, located in the heart of the market.
