Poblenou’s most emblematic square is also home to some of its oldest residences. The humble, white 19th-century buildings that line the square were home to fishermen when Poblenou was a fishing village. Plaça de Prim doesn’t need a lot of frills to seduce passers-by. Three fantastic ombú trees, a less-than-spectacular fountain, a few benches and a single restaurant ... but what a restaurant! Els Pescadors has the privilege of exclusive terrace rights and it’s imperative you get stuck in to a selection of their fresh seafood dishes to set everything right with the world.

Packed to the rafters with dusty bottles of wine, this classic but minuscule bar makes up for in tapas what it lacks in space. The specialities are 'conservas' (shellfish preserved in tins), which aren't always to non-Spanish tastes, but the 'montaditos' (sculpted tapas served on bread) are spectacular. Try salmon sashimi with cream cheese, honey and soy, or cod, passata and black olive pâté. Get there early for any chance of a surface on which to put your drink.

Ex-financier Jaume Muedra has come home, and brought his mother's kitchen with him. He's set up a top-notch tapas bar featuring calamares, Russian salad, oxtail, fried fish... all first-class. It's a seaside tavern in Barceloneta with all the comforts of the 21st century.

This tavern frequented by those who work at or near the sea has got to be a favourite for hearty lunches in Barcelona. Among the iron-and-marble tables, you can get lunch specialities every day that will put hair on your chest: stewed garbanzos, 'capipota' and salted cod are just some of the stars on the menu. La Cova Fumada is said to be the birthplace of the spicy potato and mince meat 'bomba', and as Josep Maria tells us, it was here where, over 60 years ago, his grandmother Maria Pla invented this local delight.

Albert Adrià provides the brains behind this spot, and his restaurant Tickets is just across the road. You know that with an Adrià at the helm in the kitchen it's an innovative cuisine they're serving up, even though they try to be true to the flavours that dominated in local food from the early 20th century: the smoked, the salted, the grilled and the pickled. It's a pleasing trip to the past without leaving behind the modern mindset for the 21st-century palate.

The three essential tapas at this emblematic bar with just six tables are the fried whole anchovies, the tomato salad, onion and olive salad, and the ‘pintxo’ of ‘morcilla’ sausage. We’ll add a fourth because we love it, and because, indeed, with this addition we’ll have presented the entire menu at La Plata: the gorgeous pintxo of simply the best anchovies around. They’ve been serving these same staples since 1945, making La Plata experts at what they do. Good service, good food, and good wine! Why fix it if it ain’t broke?

Up in Barcelona’s Horta-Guinardó neighbourhood, this maze of walls and walkways boasts breathtaking hillside views of the whole city. Highlights when visiting include the Hall of One Hundred Columns (though it actually has 86); the mosaic serpent bench; and the salamander on the main steps. You can enter the park for free, but if you want to get into the ‘Monumental zone’, you’ll pay around €10 to see the iconic mosaic bench and dragon (and more).

If the quality of a museum is measured by the number of people queuing to get in, the Picasso Museum takes first place. The museum was created by the artist himself and his friend and secretary, Jaime Sabartès, who donated his collection. More than 3,800 works make up the permanent collection, and it also hosts an array of temporary exhibitions.

For many in Barcelona, Sant Felip Neri is the prettiest square in the whole city – perhaps because of its sheer simplicity. You reach it by wandering through the narrow streets of the Old City. The square is built over the old medieval cemetery of Montjuïc del Bisbe and features a church and school of the same name, some Renaissance buildings and the former head offices of the tinker and shoemaker guilds, the latter now housing the Shoe Museum. If you look closely at the façade of the Sant Felip Neri church, you’ll notice shrapnel from a bomb thrown by Franco’s forces during the Civil War, tragically killing 42 people, most of them children.

Following major renovation works, Barcelona’s dockyards, declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1976, look better than ever. The Maritime Museum is responsible for preserving, studying and publicising one of the most important collections of maritime heritage in the Mediterranean. Worth a look simply for its architecture, the museum also hosts a variety of exhibitions, while the garden and café make for a thoroughly pleasant pit stop.

One of the best surviving examples of the Catalan Gothic style, this graceful basilica stands out for its characteristic horizontal lines, plain surfaces, square buttresses and flat-topped octagonal towers. Its superb unity of style is down to the fact that it was built relatively quickly, with construction taking just 55 years (1329 to 1384). There’s also some stunning stained glass, especially the great 15th-century rose window above the main door. The original window fell down during an earthquake, killing 25. The incongruous modern window at the other end was a 1997 addition, belatedly celebrating the Olympics.

Slowly the skaters are taking over this square, but they cannot take away from the imposing Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, or MACBA. It’s an impressive building, designed by the American architect Richard Meier, with a large glass façade and a combination of straight lines and cylindrical shapes. Since opening in 1995, the MACBA has become the city’s top institution for contemporary art in all its forms.

There is no rational explanation for motorbike frenzy. Or is there? See for yourself in the former Sen Felipe Neri convent, where, among the arches and calcified walls is a display of motorbikes that have become practically venerated relics. The Motorbike Museum has as part of its exhibition part of the collection that belonged to restaurateur Mario Soler; and there is no lack of classics such as Montesa, Bultaco, OSSA and Derbi, along with centenarians like the Villalbí.

The legacy of a genius; that’s what you’ll come across if you take a stroll around the centre of Figueres, the capital of the Alt Empordà region, which is home to the Teatre-Museu Salvador Dalí. Contemplating the work of Catalonia’s most iconic surrealist is a unique experience for all five senses. From paintings and engravings to photography, sculpture and holograms, here you’ll find Dalí’s imaginative universe in all its splendour. While the museum is incredible enough to be the highlight of your trip, Figueres is a very nice town to explore and is just a short drive away from the Gulf de Roses on the Costa Brava.

This is possibly the coolest location for a theme park – on top of a mountain. It’s the only one in the city, and to get there you have to take the steep funicular. There’s a good mix of classic and more modern rides, with many suitable for all ages. It’s also next door to Sagrat Cor, atop which stands a huge statue of Jesus, and you can climb up to its base.

It's worth getting to know Balius, a cocktail bar that specialises in top vermouth and cocktails made with vermouth, and when you're feeling peckish you can order from a repertoire of cured foods, tapas and small dishes that have their origins mainly in Aragon and Castilla. For example, the 'lomo de orza' is finely cut pork loin marinated with 'alioli' (garlic mayonnaise) and lemon, and the 'atascaburras' is a salted cod dish that has the fame of being mentioned in 'Don Quijote'.

At Apolo you get exquisite electronica with DJ Fra and Kosmos as your gurus. Downstairs in La [2] it's Astin, where you'll hear the best house and disco with DJ Coco, Arnau Obiols and Morgan Hammer. Nitsa is Guardiola's Barça of Barcelona clubs, a place where some of the best DJs have got the dance floor pounding, and the heavy-hitters just keep coming. Apolo's three spaces also feature label-free gigs. Note that buying tickets for the band doesn't include admission to the club night: you'll need to re-enter for that, and pay an extra charge. Emerging acts and veterans of pop, rock, folk and electronica from around the world take to the stage every day of the week.

The Loft, like Nitsa, gives Barcelona's nightlife the gift of the most current electronic music from around the globe. We're talking a temple of techno visited by more pilgrims than the Camino de Santiago. Razzmatazz barely calls for an introduction: if you've ever been clubbing in Barcelona, odds are you've walked right in and had to be dragged out. The danceable pop-rock hits are irresistible. There's usually quite a young crowd, which depending on which generation you fall into, might have you excited or heading for a depression. Just know that if you're over a certain age, you might feel like you've been let out of the old folks' home in order to babysit for the night.

Even though it's been around since before the Beatles broke up, Jamboree is still the place in Barcelona where you can see the best jazz concerts in the city, as well as dance to the best of hip hop and R&B. Don't miss Thursday nights to educate your ears with the most current hits of the scene thanks to the BCN Or Die sessions with Flavio Rodríguez. Weekends mean obligatory visits to services with DJ Yoda, one of the biggest there are when it comes to urban sounds. Oh, and sneakers and caps are not only allowed but they're practically mandatory.

Also in Plaça Reial, Sidecar hosts rock concerts with bands that are more underground than the metro in its bare-bricked, barrel-vaulted basement. Plus, every day of the week you can drop in for some of the best DJs in the city playing rock and all its offshoots. Sidecar is that great spot to end up after a night roaming the town that ends in search of a party. You go out on a Tuesday. You drink seven G&Ts and smoked oregano in Plaça Reial.

Garage, Afrobeat, jazz, funk, soul, disco, boogaloo, and whatever the groove muses send their way, that's what you'll get at Marula Café, a place so real it hurts. There's no other club in Barcelona that plays with old-school music like this elegant space located in the deepest bowels of the Gothic Quarter. Marula's concert programme is the stuff of dreams for vinyl connoisseurs. And nothing's held back when it comes to their DJ sessions: at the weekend you'll move to backbeats with a seal of quality and a vintage flair, the likes of Coltrane, Hayes, Bridge, Mayfield and more.

Ciutadella Park is close to the city centre and is the green space most frequented by locals. There’s much to see across its 17 hectares: the zoo, the Catalan Parliament buildings, the church, the lake, the bandstand...

Music & Teathre
When you visit the Palau de la Música all your senses sit up and take notice, because every inch tells a story of modernisme, music and Catalonia. It was built in 1908 by Lluís Domènech i Montaner and is today a Unesco World Heritage Site. The Muses watch over the main concert hall, and on the façade you’ll find busts of Palestrina, Bach, Beethoven and Wagner. The programme, predictably, is stellar.

The Muses watch over the main concert hall, and on the façade you’ll find busts of Palestrina, Bach, Beethoven and Wagner. The programme, predictably, is stellar.
