5 THINGS YOU HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT BARCELONA

First time in Barcelona? Tenth time? The city hides many secrets – find out if you knew…

1.Three times more tourists than inhabitants

Barcelona is incredibly popular among tourists and very well prepared for a pleasant stay. The city counts with 1,6 million inhabitants and has beaten a record of 8,9 million tourists in high season in 2017. Does it mean that it will be crowded and unwelcoming? Not at all, the city structure and a vast range of activities make everybody feel at home!

2. The mystery of Sagrada Familia

On the oldest fasade of the Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family (Basílica y Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia in Spanish) finished by Gaudi there is a square sculpture with various numbers. If you sum them up the result will always be 33. Do you know why is that? Let us know in the comments!

3. The Columbus pointing wrong way

The impressive monument of Christopher Columbus at the end of the Ramblas hides a secret. If the Italian colonist was to show the America, he should rather point the street! Apparently, when it was designed it was said that people will associate far continents with the sea rather than with Ramblas!

4. Santa Maria del Mar is Barca!

If you stroll around Barcelona’s old town, you will surely arrive to one of the town’s most impressive cathedrals – Catedral de Santa Maria del Mar. Although it was built in XIVth century, it has a very modern sponsor. Barcelona Footbal Club not only donated to it’s renovation, but also has a stained glass window with club’s shield. Look for it at the far left end!

5. Michelin stars over Barcelona

There are 29 restaurants with 1, 2 or 3 Michelin stars in Barcelona. It’s a culinary paradise for gourmet foodies. Not to mention the whole Catalunya region that currently enjoys 53 Michelin stars. Some of them have long waiting times, but since there are so many… 🙂

How to Plan the Perfect Beach Wedding

Dress Accordingly

Skip the big dress. Let’s face it: A ballgown belongs in, well, a ballroom. “You may be able to get down the aisle in a full dress and long train,” notes Paulette Davis of Bahamas Wedding Planner, “but walking on the beach and taking photos won’t be easy. If a large dress is a must, make sure it can bustle easily.”
