If you feel like venturing outside of the mainstream and checking out a few, less touristy neighborhoods in Barcelona, head to Les Corts and Sants. Just outside of the downtown core, there are plenty of great restaurants, cultural centers and interesting museums to explore.
Our number three pick is an exciting excursion both during the day and after dark. Poble Espanyol, on Montuic, is like a small village onto itself. With a medieval flair, this makeshift town atop Montjuic is fun to stroll around during the day, browsing and then if you're not tired and want to stick around in the evening, Teraza club throws amazing parties, especially during the summer.
If you want to explore the Jewish area, outside of the Call in the Gothic Quarter, our number five pick gives you a glimpse into modern Jewish life in Barcelona. Check out the orthodox Synagogue on c/Avenir and its surrounding area. It's a great place to stroll and look at some fancier, designer shops as the area itself is an exceptionally nice part of town.
Our number eight pick features one of Barcelona's finest art galleries. With a vast mix of art, including sculpture, photography and visual art, this is as about eclectic an art gallery as you'll find in Barcelona. If you're at all interested in art, this is definitely worth a visit and it's a nice way to veer from the more popular museums while seeing more of Les Corts and Sants neighborhoods.
