Madrid vs Barcelona

Jump to last reply

Last Year I took a trip to major european cities in several countries. 2 cities I went to were madrid and Barcelona. I think Madrid had a lot to check out such as plaza mayor, museo del prado and more.

I went to Barcelona was not to impressed, dont get me wrong it is a very nice looking city. I walked around la rambla and port olympic and took the hop on hop off city bus tour.I will admit that I was not very interested in checking out this cities famous things such as sagrada familia, la pedrera, and more.I was mostly hoping on and of checking out the city and taking pic. I had a much beter time in madrid as well as other cities such as rome, berlin, paris, lisbon, london, amsterdam, venice, lisbon.

I would like some opinions of what people think of Barcelona vs Madrid on which is the better city. For those who have seen both which was your favorite.

My thing is that Barcelona does not have iconic sights such as other major european cities. I just went to take pic, hop on hop off bus, walk la rambla, and walk port olympic. Its very nice looking, however i think its overrated.
