Walk around Barcelona

Not so many times I have the chance to relax and walk around Barcelona. Usually, I go from point A to B because I need to, and never think about it. It’s only when friends from abroad visit my hometown that I take my camera, spend some time with them and behave like a tourist in my own country. Did it so many times that I have a predefined route for newcomers.
Keep reading to see some photos and get to know the basic route I recommend for newcomers to Barcelona.

Matsuri Japan in Barcelona

Japan, the country I fell in love with, and my hometown Barcelona, united in one event once a year, the Matsuri Japan. The Matsuri Japan took place on first weekend of June, and it’s the third consecutive year the event took place next to the beach in Barcelona. A two day event with plenty of activities, food stands, souvenirs shops and related. Sipping a cold can of green tea to trying on a japanese kimono or participating in a bon odori dance, japanese style, you can check all photos of the event through this post.

Barceloneta

Now that the spring seems to fully settled in Barcelona, is nice to go out on weekends and walk around before the tourism high season and the high temperatures strikes as every summer. Since the 1992 Barcelona olympic games, Barceloneta district has become a really attractive and touristy area of Barcelona. Historically a fishermen and workers district of old Barcelona, still keeps it’s charming ambience, seafood restaurants and small bars fill the streets of Barceloneta, plus walking along the beach makes the experience a must during spring time.
In summertime though, the tourists invade every single bar and nightclub of Barceloneta, making it near to impossible to enjoy the real charm of Barceloneta coastline.
