Mirador de Colom

View from the mirador de Colon

One of the first locations in the route is the Mirador de Colom. This statue was designed and built by Catalans in 1882. They finished it in 1887 just in time for the World Exhibition in 1888. The statue has an amazing amount of detail to it that you can only see when you get really close. In the column of the statue, there is an elevator that can take you up to the top. From here you have the best view of the harbour, Las Ramblas and the old town.

Plaza Reial

Plaza Reial Barcelona

This square is the Royal square of Barcelona and is an amazing place to visit during those summer evenings. You can find plenty of restaurants, bars and places to dance or you just sit on one of the terraces and be entertained by the street artists. The square is located next to Las Ramblas and has the first works of Gaudi on it. Don’t miss out on seeing these great lanterns on each side of the fountain.

Las Ramblas

Uitzicht over las Ramblas

The most famous street in Barcelona has to be Las Ramblas. On an average summer day, you will find it hard to walk on this beautiful street and it is crowded with tourists and pickpockets. But, if you are in Barcelona in the winter time, early in the morning when the sun just comes up on the bottom of the street shining a beautiful morning glow over the city, you can enjoy a stroll and admire the beauty.
