It is Spain’s major Mediterranean port and commercial centre. Barcelona is home to masterpieces of many great architects. The most famous is Antoni Gaudí. His work is admired by most architects as being one of the most unique in modern architecture. His most famous masterpieces are La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo and Parc Güell. Along with the works of Antoni Gaudi there is more to see in Barcelona like the museum of Picasso,the city’s cathedral which dates back to the 13th century and Museu d'Història de Catalunya which tells the story of Catalunya.
Should you want to relax during the day and get away, Barcelona has two wonderful parks. The first one is Parc de la Ciutadella where you will find the famous fountain Cascada. The second, Parc Guell with beautifully landscaped gardens, you will find the very famous much photographed mosaic dragon. Apart from parks, with warm sunshine most of the year, you can always enjoy long walks on the beach. While you’ll do lots of walking in Barcelona, you will need to use the city’s metro at some stage. Barcelona is where you will find one of Europe’s most famous streets known as La Rambla. It is a large long boulevard, throughout the heart of the city centre. It is filled with live performances, artists that will draw your portrait, and human statues. Barcelona is a city of music and dance, wherever you go you will encounter music festivals and gatherings.
If you are walking around the city of Barcelona you will constantly see crowds of people from all over the world. But, if you notice empty streets, then do not worry or panic, it’s mostly because football is on!
During the league seasons, thousands of people head to stadiums, pubs or parks to watch the games, cheer for their teams and enjoy that breathtaking atmosphere. Spanish football is so famous, especially in Barcelona home to Spain’s first division La Liga, that people fly from faraway destinations to visit FC Barcelona Football Museum, one of the city's most visited attractions. Whether you are a football fanatic or simply enjoy the game occasionally, it is hard to deny that Barcelona is indeed the destination for lovers of this great beautiful game.
Maya Dia travelled with Flyfoot to Barcelona with a group of friends and It was the best game she had ever watched. The game took action at Camp Nou with FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid in La Liga. The final score was 2-0 for FC Barcelona and fortunately she witnessed Messi scoring. It was her only game with Flyfoot, she enjoyed the experience so much: “I liked where the seats were and the organization. It's an unforgettable experience, Barcelona as a city and Camp Nou as a stadium!”
Hours before the game you already feel the excitement everywhere, fans gather around bars and restaurants to grab a drink, enjoy some tapas and of course, share one mutual language, football.
It’s game time and the stadium fills up so fast. For fans, there’s nothing like being with other fans at the stadium. They all come together in harmony and chant in support for their team. The only way to truly enjoy a game, is to get carried away, you will scream, burst to tears of joy, have your breath taken away by what is surrounding you.
“An unforgettable experience”, Rafic Bazzi watched 3 games with Flyfoot in a row at the camp nou including El Clásico.
El Clásico is a domestic game between fierce rivals FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, seen as the most important, fiercest rivalry in all of football, not for the faint-hearted. It is the very best against the very best, both teams hate each other. The atmosphere leading up to the game is intense and unreal. Watching El Clásico live in Barcelona at Camp Nou is one of the most unique experiences a fan can have in his lifetime, it is where the magic happens. Watching Lionel Messi dance around with the ball and those football legends like Eden Hazard, Luis Suárez, Sergio Ramos, battle against each other in honor of tradition and their home.
Nothing says happiness and enlightenment more than a trip to Barcelona. Make sure you grab your package with Flyfoot and get ready to have your jaw fall on the floor the second you experience that true spanish football vibe, or that moment you enter Camp Nou and nonetheless the moment you discover the beauty of the city itself, the “City of Counts”.
