One free day in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

I will be attending a conference in Barcelona in late October. I will be there for 6 nights but only one full day to explore. I feel sure I can squeeze in a few other things here and there but just have my arrival day on my own. I arrive at 8:45am (hoping passport control isn't a nightmare but you never know).

So, yeah, there will be some jet lag but I am very good on my first day in Europe (no napping and I stay up until local bedtime). I usually get a burst of energy once I drop my bags off at a hotel. I don't know which hotel I am staying at yet (corporate assistant is booking it but guessing it will be near Fira Gran Via).

If you only had one day in Barcelona, what would you recommend? I have never been to Barcelona. If you have read any of my trip reports, you'll know I do love my food and wine (just discovered Txakolina rosé, so I will be looking to sip on that). So, should I include La Boqueria or work it in another time...or go there every single day :-) ? I love to visit churches and I love fountains. From basic information I know about the city, looks like architecture is the thing in Barcelona.

I love to run as a way to see cities I travel to. If anyone has suggestions on routes or areas that are good to run and take in the sights, I would love it.
