From the Plaça de Catalunya
If your tourism in Barcelona is for a weekend, at the Guest House Center Inn we will recommend a planned route, so you do not miss any main points of interest. The center of the city is Plaça Catalunya (we are located a few minutes away) just below is the Casco Viejo or Gothic Quarter, most of the museums and other places of historical interest in the city.
The popular Ramblas is another of thekey points of tourism in Barcelona key for visitors. It winds from the Plaça Catalunya to the statue of Columbus, next to the port. To the east of the Rambla is the beautiful and romantic Barri Gòtic, while to the west is the Barri del Raval. From the statue of Colom, towards the east, the Pg. Marítim crosses the Moll de la Fusta and the Port Vell; the picturesque area of Barceloneta leads to Port Olímpic. To the west, the Parallel takes us to Plaça D'Espanya, from where Montjuïc stands, one of Barcelona's main parks. The Tibidabo mountain, marks the northern limit of the city. The also popular Avenida Diagonal is another important point of reference, since it crosses the entire city diagonally.
Between the Plaza de Catalunya and the Diagonal, we find practically all of Barcelona's L'Eixample, which emerged from the famous "Pla Cerdà" and whose objective was to unite the center of Barcelona with the nearby towns, which are now part of Barcelona. These, such as Gràcia, Les Corts, Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, etc. they have been able to keep their own historical and cultural identity over the years. This square grid of blocks, L'Eixample, has as its main artery the Passeig de Gràcia where you can find the main modernist buildings of the city, such as the popular Casa Batllo and Casa Milá (La Pedrera) by Gaudí.
Other important points are: La Sagrada Família, Park Güell, Barri de la Ribera and Camp Nou.
In addition Barcelona has 5 km of beaches with services, divided into different sections, and which can be accessed by public transport.
