Best Instagrammable Spots in Barcelona

April 05, 2020
You can't deny that Barcelona is a beautiful city. It's arguably Spain's most attractive area as far as aesthetics is concerned. No owner visitors often have ball snapping away and posting on Instagram here. But perhaps what's most interesting about this city is that it doesn't have one look. One corner of the town looks completely different from the next, and the next, and the next. And with so many beautiful sites to choose from and to set as your selfie backdrop, you'll have a ton of new social media posts by the time you end your trip. But here are some places you must capture before you leave!

Best Instagrammable Spots in Barcelona

 

Park Guell

No visit to Barcelona is complete without going to Park Guell. It's arguably the most famous spot in all of the city. As colorful as the inhabitants of the city, as well as its visitors, the park has appeared in countless movies set in Barcelona. And in countless Instagram posts as well. It's even regarded by UNESCO as a World Heritage site, further given prestige to this beloved park. What's so eye-catching about the area is the eclectic styles that surround the park, from the gothic architecture to the modern-style mosaics that decorate the steps,

Sagrada Familia

Another UNESCO World Heritage site is Barcelona's most famous church: La Sagrada. Designed by the famous Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudí, the church is a unique structure that has drawn many tourists from around the world. It's not just the combination of traditional Gothic style and art nouveau principles that make this basilica fascinating, but it's the way the sun brightens up the places, both inside and out, that make for great Instagram posts. When you see those colorful stained glass windows shining brightly, you'll want to instantly capture them with your phone and post online!

Casa Vicens

Speaking of Gaudí, a lot of his works throughout the city will appear on this list. What do you expect? He's practically the architects of the city. But even though he has his signature styles, some of his works don't look like the others. One, in particular, is the Casa Vicens up on Carrer de les Carolines. This is actually his first architectural work and it sort of shows. Known for his round art nouveau aesthetic, this house presents a more angular, symmetric, and geometric design. Not to mention its stark red color scheme, as opposed to the pastels he's more commonly known for.

Casa Batllo

Casa Battlo, on the other hand, is signature Gaudí. And this is probably why the house is one of his more famous works in the city. Here, he really let his signature shine with the rounds windows, squiggly details, and colorful exterior. You'd see hints of the slightly psychedelic silhouettes that almost harken back to the Sagrada Familia church, his most famous work. But here, those same principles are more modest and conservative. So much so, they'll make for great additions to your Instagram feed!

Casa Mila – La Pedrera

Finally, rounding out the Gaudí buildings on this list, Casa Mila is Instagrammable for a slightly different reason. Sure, overall, the building is as beautiful as his other works. It's similarly colorful evokes his signature art nouveau style. However, it's the building's stairwell terrace up above that will likely garner a lot of likes o social media. Head on up here at night and see the place when it's illuminated. The view is nothing short of spectacular, both of the place and from it as well.

Carrer del Bisbe

Now, it's time to turn your phone camera to somewhere a little older and more traditional. The Gothic Quarter is undoubtedly one of Barcelona's most aesthetically-pleasing areas because of the gothic architecture. You'll feel as if you time-traveled to the city's earliest times, passing through the same streets where the nobility and the artists once walked through. But within this area, Carrer del Bisbe has gotten the captures from many tourists. The neo-gothic bridge alone will garner thousands of likes when you post it on Instagram!

Allada Vermell

Sure, Barcelona is filled with historic monuments and stunning structures designed by famous architects. But the city also has its fair share of charming houses. Remember, more than just a tourist hub, this Catalan capital is still home to millions of Spaniards who simply live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And it's always great when some of them contribute to making the place even more attractive. Such as the owners of Allada Vermell, a quaint household whose facade is mostly made up of beautiful plants. It's simple and charming, perfect for the adorable elderly couple who live there!

La Boqueria Market

At times, the better Instagram posts for when you travel are the places where locals often go to. While snapshots of famous monuments and popular hotspots are nice, giving your followers a taste of the city's local life will feel like a welcome change. In Barcelona, a beautiful example would be La Boqueria Market. Operating as one of the city's most visited marketplaces since the 13th century, it remains one of the busiest areas of local life. And it helps that the vendors color-coordinate and even decorate their stalls to lure in customers and tourists alike.
