Enter a magical world at Pudding cafeteria. Located only few steps away from the famous Passeig de Gràcia, this cafeteria will take you to a dreamland and most importantly, will keep your kids busy. 🙂
Their concept is Eat+play+think. And as you enter the threshold of Pudding you´ll see why… At the counter delicious looking homemade cakes and cookies are tempting you already, a soft fabric circus-like ceiling welcomes to join the adventure and, at the back of the room, two giant mushrooms are calling your kids to fall into the rabbit’s hole for a while.
L’Illa Diagonal is an interesting indoor shopping centre, with nice restaurants and plenty of entertainment options, from fashion shops to sports, jewelery, food and delicatessen, homeware and kids fashion and toys. Located in a business district, L’Illa Diagonal is also close to some interesting neighbourhoods and at walking distance from Sants Estació, Barcelona’s main train hub.
Barcelona is a city full of colourful markets, a delight to the sight, smell and taste. And if there’s one market you should not miss while in Barcelona, this is La Boqueria.
Located at the heart of the city, facing La Rambla street, this is one of the most colourful, photo friendly markets in the world. It’s crowded, noisy and very touristy but worth the visit nonetheless.
¿Looking for a nice place to brunch in Barcelona? Try the up and coming neighbourhood of Sant Antoni. There’s plenty of options there but since you are heading to Sant Antoni I strongly recommend Federal café.
With a relaxed and very cool atmosphere, this place offers some of the tastiest brunch options in the city. It’s great for kids, especially if you make it to their rooftop terrace and they have a wide selection of food, from the healthiest bites to the sweetest treats.
Freshly squeezed bio fruit juices, big cafés au lait and cappuccinos and homemade pies make it for a good start but don´t miss out on their menu for savoury options, my favourite.
You are planning a trip to Barcelona and wondering whether it´s worth visiting Sagrada Familia with kids? The answer is simply yes. The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is one of the masterpieces of modernism in Barcelona. It´s like no other church in the world.
Sagrada Familia is probably at the TOP of your must-see list and yet, since travelling with kids, you may be considering just checking it out from the outside. I know, visiting churches can get a bit boring for the younger generation…. But let me tell you otherwise.
Montjuïc Castle or Castillo de Montjuïc stands at over 170 meters above sea level and offers stunning views of Barcelona and its waterfront. This castle, once a fortress, is now a museum opened daily and with a 360-degree view of the city
Located in one of the hills that surround Barcelona, a trip to Montjuïc Castle is a great opportunity to spend a day out with the kids. The castle itself is worth a visit but the surrounding area is also a must. Within the castle you will find a small museum and plenty of space for the kids to run around.
Wondering where to find the best beach for kids in Barcelona? You sure do if you are travelling during the summer months, but believe me, if your trip is outside summer time you can still enjoy Barcelona’s waterfront. You should consider a day at a beach as a serious option from May to October and a real possibility all year round.
Bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, the Barcelona’s shoreline is blessed with almost 5 km of golden sand beaches and quiet shallow waters. One of the hot spots for visitors and locals in Barcelona, they are ideal for fun family time.
Do you fancy shopping? Then you probably know already that Barcelona is one of the top places in the world to go bargain hunting. And to avoid the heat of the streets during the summer months, head to one of Barcelona´s most famous shopping centers, Las Arenas.
Las Arenas is an invitation for a perfect bond between shopping and sightseeing that will make your day unforgettable for you and your family. Located in a former bullfighting ring, Las Arenas shopping center features spectacular 360º views of Barcelona. From the top you will see Montjuïc and the MNAC (Catalan National Museum of Art).
Let Barcelona awe you again with its Art Noveau architecture. Modernism, the Catalan Art Noveau, has its imprint in many buildings scattered around the city and world-famous architects such as Salvador Dalí once lived and created most of their work in Barcelona. (more…)
If there’s one park you and your kids will fall in love in Barcelona this is Parc del Laberint d’Horta. This beautifully landscaped park contains a unique fairytale maze were your kids can “get lost” for a while. It’s not a tough maze but fun enough to play as a family.
