Barcelona Hen Do

Over the weekend I went on a hen do to Barcelona having not been since I was a kid I was very excited for sightseeing, sangria and just being with the girls.

We flew with ryanair and easyjet who have great deals on flights and we booked a beautiful apartment through booking.com which I highly recommend if you are in a group of 8 or more because of how spacious it was and being located by shops, restaurants and the metro you could get around easily.

After we had checked in we walked down the famous rambles to find some Spanish lunch we ended up in a little square called Placa Reial which is tucked away off the rambles but a must go! There was plenty of restaurants to choose from and apparently at night it really comes alive!



After lunch we visited the famous Park Guell by Gaudi which is close to the metro stop Vallcarca be warned it's up hill and a lot of stairs who said you can't keep fit while on holiday?! We waited until 6.15pm so we got in for free and see the sun setting but before you find yourself at Park Guell there is a brick tower that overlooks the whole of Barcelona I could of looked at that view all day.

On the Saturday we covered the rest of the tourist sights which believe me can be done in one day as long as you enjoy walking. We saw the famous Sagrada Familia which there hoping to finish by 2026 100 years since Gaudi died. If you see one thing in Barcelona make it this it's magnificent we didn't go inside but I'm sure I will visit it again soon!



Afterwards we walked about 20 minutes to the Arc De Triomf using our phones and maps because the great advantage of this beautiful city is even though the metro is so cheap you can walk to most of the tourist attractions. I didn't even realise they had this monument similar to Paris and it's just as big too!


Then we headed towards the gothic quarter to see the cathedral there's lots of small streets it's really quite charming. I think when I go again I would stay in this area. 



On the last night of our weekend in Barcelona we went to this beautiful restaurant called Vigo i treated myself to some tapas and seafood paella I highly recommend them! Then we finished off the night at a club called Opium right on the beach be warned its very pricey for drinks but plenty of nightclubs in Europe can be!




Anyone planning a hen do abroad I highly recommend Barcelona but would love to go back in the Summer so i can laze on the beach too!
