If you can take advantage and make an express escape in Barcelona, you will see that although our city is not usually the cradle of romance, you can spend a very romantic Valentine in Barcelona 😉
Starting with a romantic stroll along the Passeig de Gràcia (I do not say La Rambla because it can be overwhelming …), you will enjoy watching the Casa Batlló, Casa Ametller and Casa Lleó Morera, three of the jewels of the Block of Discord . Surely the modernist landscape will give to many pictures and selfies romantic 😉 In addition, you will meet one of the best places for shopping in the city , so you can always use to buy…
In the afternoon you can still visit the Pedrera (Casa Mila) , the Sagrada Familia or perhaps a romantic walk in the Parc Güell. More towards the evening, we recommend going down to the sea area, either the Port Vell and see the imposing monument of Columbus with the last rays of the sun , or the area of the modern Port Olimpic, where about Casino Barcelona you will find dozens of places to dine overlooking the sea …
If you are in other areas of the city at dinnertime, there are many other romantic restaurants for dinner on Valentine’s … let not having a special dinner on a day like this!
After spending a romantic Valentine’s night, Sunday can still take to make several visits. Fail to meet the so-called “old town” part of town. You come to visit the Cathedral of Barcelona , wanders the streets around, look at the walls, the chapel of St. Agatha and breathes whole story explaining the stones of our city.
If you have time and you want to end the weekend with a romantic activity, we suggest to enjoy one and two hours in the wonderful Arab baths Arena, an activity especially nice if you’re a couple and that will give you relaxation and wellness.
