Barcelona offers their 'Blue Tourist Bus Route', which circles the city, stopping at all of its major attractions. And there are many attractions! (see below) With one ticket you can stop anywhere and get onto another one once you’re done.
If you’re interested in shopping, (and who isn’t?) you’ll find variety and plenty in Barcelona, including 5kms of stores (in a row!) stretching from the port to the Diagonal district. As well there are 'designer' shopping opportunities on the famous Rambala Avenue and down by the water at Port de Yell. Malls, strip malls, department stores, outdoor flea markets (Cathedral Square) and even discount designer outlets (La Roca Company Stores found between Barcelona and Girona) offer shoppers the best of everything from this abundant, generous Catalan, visit. It’s hard not to be enthusiastic about this amazing grandprixcity!
Sitting outdoors at one of the many bars, cafés, tapas bars, is a local pastime, during the day and particularly into the night. This occurs all up and down the La Rambala Avenue, where stores, and people, and cafés and bustle make their own entertainment. However nightclubs are also available for dancing the night away! And if you want to get out of the city a little head for Costa Brava, world-renowned tourist trap, and you’ll find more similar choices, only this time in a seaside atmosphere. Be warned, planning something in Barcelona may well be a waste of time since the city has a way of sweeping you off your feet and leading you to where the action is. However if you like your vacation time planned then check out some of the following… Other cool places where locals can be found are the squares of Plaza del Sol, Plaza Rius i Taulet. Plaza Francesc Maciá, and San Gervasi, where the streets of Santaló and Mariano Cubi cross and people don’t need a disco to dance, they do it in the streets on Saturday nights!
In 2002, Sunday after the race, Supertramp played in Barcelona to a sell out crowd. Also if you have the chance to be downtown on Sunday night, check out and if you're in town on a Sunday there's the performance of the 'sardana', a traditional Catalan dance performed regularly just outside the Cathedral de la Seu.
Eating in Barcelona
Of course a huge internationally focused city like Barcelona caters for all tastes. Look no further than La Rambla Avenue for everything from burger joints to gourmet dining. But if you’re interested in the local cuisine you’re in for some wonderful surprises. Paella is a wonderful quiche type pie that can come containing any mix of ingredients, including with noodles (fideuas), with vegetable rice noodles and potatoes (La escudella i carn d'olla), You’ll also find a regional sausage called the Butifarra, Pilota (a preparation of beef), bread, eggs and white beans as well as seafood dishes ,. Tapas, a local fast-food, served almost everywhere but particularly in Tapas bars (or “tascas” as the Barcelonans call them), is various foods appetizers served over a period of time on cocktail sticks.
If you need to escape La Rambla for a more romantic dinner, consider a place near placa de Catalunya, where you can eat outside with the dearly beloved, or whip down to the sea... The Olympic Port (formally La Barcelonetta, a place for fishermen) features a plentiful selection of seafood restaurants if that’s your mood. Fish specialities are "Zarzuela", named after a Spanish Operetta and made of cuttlefish, mussels and prawn, brandy and wine sauce, and its more lavish version, "La Opera", which uses lobster. You might even want to try uilas (eels sauteed in olive oil and butter, served live on the plate and considered a delicacy.
Typical desserts are Crema Catalana, Mel i mato (of curds and honey), and the Postre del Musico ("dessert of the musician") with pine-kernels and raisins.
Also, make an effort to try the famous wines of Catalunya. Their reds are from Peralda, Alella, Priorat and Tarragona, and whites are from Penedés, and of course, if you are at a Tapas bar, you must enjoy with your food the famous Cava (sparkling champagne type wine), For non-alcholic beverages try the tasty, horchata de chufa, an almond-flavored soft drink popular in Spain.
The main shopping regions are along La Rambla (see above), Playa de Sant Josep Oriol and the Playa Reial. There really isn't anything spectacular about shopping in Barcelona, it's the atmosphere along La Rambla and the constant bustle that's exciting. Shopping in this city is not a contact sport as in São Paulo.
You’ll find over 100 cinemas in Barcelona. Average price for a ticket is 5EUR/4USD. The city hosts a cinemateque too: Telephone: +34 934 107 590, several cinemas that screen films in their original language, (Alexis, Casablanca, Icària Yelmo Cineplex, Maldà, Méliès Cinemes, Renoir Les Corts, Verdi and Verdi Park ) and there is an IMAX cinema near the Aquarium at Port Yell Telephone: +34 932 251 111
Many great artists originated in Spain and particularly Barcelona, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. The rich modernist tradition is not forgotten by the city and paid homage to in several astounding galleries. For example, Barcelona is home of the famous Picasso Museum. @ Carrer Montcada 1519, Barcelona Tel: +34 93 319 6310. Take time also to visit the Museum d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA). For a listing of many galleries in the city visit artbarcelona.es - Associacio Art Barcelona.
In Barcelona you’ll find monuments erected in the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods. This city on the northern Spanish coast has been a magnet for style and development for centuries and its architecture reflects this. More so, however, the capital of Catalunya, was one of the main centers of the revolutionary modernist movement in the first half of the 1900s and this 'modern revision' of everything, including architecture (next), makes one gaze in wonder at what was achieved.
Barcelona was home to famous artist Antoní Gaudí, whose 150th birthday the city celebrated in 2002. His amazing structural art included buildings. His most famous work, the Sagrada Familia Church , an amazing structure that seems to be melting, as well as his house, made up of all colors and shapes, can be seen in Barcelona. You’ll find the modernist part of the city in the EL ENSANCHE region. The old city, Cuitat Vella, is worth a walk through, to see what Barcelona looked like before it expanded into the metropolis it now is. On the city’s most famous street alone you will see the La Boqueria, the Opera House and the Placa Reial.
The Cathedral square on Saturday becomes a flea market, and as night falls, the square becomes a dancehall as Catalan people show their willingness to party. People literally dance and enjoy themselves in the streets dancing a local popular dance, the Sadana. Also, The Aquarium at the Port Vell is located near to the IMAX cinema.
In a city that hosted the 1992 Olympic games, and has long been the host of a gp, you’d expect to find sports nuts and where there are sports nuts, there will be sports! Barcelona has it’s own NFL Europe American football team, the Barcelona Dragons, and week 3 of the 2002 season was played on Saturday evening against the Amsteredam Admirals at Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc Lluis Companys. Good to know for those suffering withdrawals from football back at home! Players from many US NFL Pro teams play Europe NFL football in the offseason.
For Football/Soccer fans, Football: FC Barcelona played Vila-real in the Spanish First Division on Saturday night of the 2002 race weekend at Futbol Club Barcelona. Camp Nou (Arístides Maillol, 12 - 18 Tel. 93 496 36 00) For a full fixture of 2003 events see F.C. Barcelona Homepage

Best viewing at Circuit Barcalona Catalunya
Like at many tracks best viewing for action is around turn 1. Like many other circuits, too, these seats are the first to go! The cars zoom in from the start and can be seen all the way until they pass behind the hill into turn 3, and then once more into turn 5. Even better is that one of the circuit’s 11 giant TV screens is right there too, as they are by all 14 grandstands! This series of turns is complex and difficult as there is a change of elevation upwards (like at Eau Rouge at Spa, Belgium, although not nearly as drastic, the other track with elevation change turns is Interlagos, where the cars career downwards after turn 1. General admission mounds are high banked at CircuitCat and offer generous, if, as always, crowded viewing on race day.
grandprixcities picture contributor, John Fajardo reports the following about general admission viewing after his 2005 MotoGP trip to Barcelona: "Although I did not opt for grandstand
seating, there are many great sight lines throughout the general
admission area especially if you can secure spots early in turn
three, turn seven and turn 13. "

Do's and Don'ts in Barcelona
Don’t expect to be rushed out the door after you’ve finished eating. In fact you’re likely to have to ask for the bill several times.
Don’t expect your food anything less than well done, if you want it rare, you’ll need to say so. Also expect to find food arriving at your table luke warm as this is the custom with many foods served here.
Catalan culture is fiercely independent, and Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya. Just as a Scottish person is not English, so a Catalan is not Spanish. A good example is that the Catalan vernacular for flag (particularly the Spanish flag) is 'mocador' (handkerchief)
If you don’t like the idea of bullfighting, it is polite to turn down an invitation, but bad form to mouth off about the cruelty etc.
Haste is frowned upon in Spain.
The "last name" in Spanish combines the person's surname and his or her mother's maiden name (i.e. Mr. Garcia-Lopez), and both should be used in writing, though only the surname (Mr. Garcia) is used in conversation.
BEWARE forged event tickets online. Buy from official sources only.
BE SENSIBLE, stay amongst people, hold tight to your walet/purse, & HAVE FUN!.
A little bit more info about the Circuit de Catalunya and Barcelona Spain
Barcelona is one of the most sophisticated and culturally endowed of the western cities on the grandprixcities™ travel trail, just edging out, by a hair, in my opinion, Milano near Monza. There is an air of creativity in this Catalan mega city, unlike anywhere else in the world.
Barcelona is a city of almost 3 million people filled to brimming with galleries, museums, and cinemas. Even the buildings there are art (i.e. the Antoní Gaudí house and the cathedral sagrada Familia. The Spanish mid-spring sun shines down on the city (and the track) and makes everything seem wonderful in the world. The city is well used to tourism and particularly sports tourism. In 2007 Barcelona hosts its 17th automobile Grand Prix and, like some other grandprixcities, Melbourne, Australia and Montreal, Canada, it has hosted Summer Olympic Games. Barcelona's was in 1992.
Barcelona is gorgeous to stroll in, the people are wonderful and friendly, and the weather around late April is usually comfortably warm 20C/68f. The Catalan tapas bars are a food/drink treat not to be missed. Entertainment of all varieties is available outside of sightseeing, making for some lovely evenings after the motor races (bikes or cars) and making for an interesting mid-week break should you be lucky enough to visit the city while there is testing held at the famous Circuitcat
Jordi Vilajoana, the Catalan Minister of Culture, is also the Catalunya Circuit's President, so racing and the art of Barcelona are inseparably linked from the top down. The track is blessed with changes in elevation, which makes viewing from any vantage a dream. Included in your f1 ticket price (for some time now) has a pit-lane walk through on Thursday afternoon before the race, unlike other tracks that confer this privilege only on Paddock Club members and VIPs. (although the practice is spreading)
Barcelona is also, I must in all conscience mention, a place not immune to acts of terror by vying political factions. This needs to be stated clearly from the outset and is no secret as it often creates fatalities. However this activism and terrorism is pointed mostly at the military and government authorities and has rarely effected civilians or tourists. The city of Barcelona was in fact the scene of a huge world Conference on Terrorism in January of 2002 and has loaned its name to a declaration of peace aimed at minimizing or eradicating such acts of violence from the world, the Barcelona Agreement. I urge you to inform yourself about such matters before you visit this otherwise beautiful and welcoming city, often at the cutting edge of style and creativity.
So put on your party clothes, dust off the bit of your brain that loves art and style, and pay a visit to this most sophisticated grandprixcity!
Barcelona Rocks. This city by far the most sophisticated of all grandprixcities in the world, and next to Valencia my favorite place to visit for racing. Unlike stuffy old Monaco Grand Prix, Barcelona Offers tourist attractions, high culture and fashion as well as a passion for racing that will blow you away, particularly if you're into motorcycle racing. . Although take note that it can be, for various reasons, dangerous, and that pick-pockets are worse than mosquitos
Don't forget to check out all of my collection of motorsport pics and to send in any pics you might have taken on your racing holiday.
Godspeed on all your motorsport travel adventures, Cvetko Ostroznik

A Couple of Race Fans sent me some notes and experience about a trip to Circuit Catalunya
The 2004 Spanish Formula One Grand Prix was our fourth visit to the Circuit de Catalunya.
With the technology of the internet, it was easier (and cheaper!) to make our flight, hotel and race ticket bookings directly with the help of grandprixcities.com
We flew into Barcelona airport and travelled down to the coastal resort of Sitges. It is about 30KM away from Barcelona city centre and we made the journey by train. There is a service every half hour and the fare is around 4GBP return. The service goes direct from the airport station (clearly signed with a train
symbol). This train goes one stop to El Prat de Llobregat on the C1 line.
There you change and pick up a C2 train heading to Vilanova. This stops
in Sitges and the station there is right in the old town.
Sitges has a traditional Spanish feel but English is widely spoken. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants although they do get very busy at weekends with the influx of local visitors.
I would definitely recommend Sitges as a place to stay at F1 Grand Prix time of year, although it would probably be too busy and touristy for my tastes in the height of summer. In May, it provides as relaxing break away from the Formula One crowds. (Find Hotels in Sitges)
Our accommodation was the Hotel Romantic which, although providing basic rooms and facilities, is full of character, art and antiques. The staff are very friendly and it is conveniently situated just a minutes walk from the railway station.
Thanks to the excellent Barcelona commuter service, we travelled by train to the circuit each day, Thursday to Sunday. The C2 line runs directly from Sitges to Montmelo via all the main Barcelona stations. The trains are frequent and usually destined for Sant Celoni. The announcements and information boards on the trains (as well as the crowds!) leave you in no doubt as to which is the correct station to get off at.
The circuit itself is approximately a thirty minute, albeit long uphill, walk from the station, clearly signed. It is nice to browse on the various merchandise stalls which line the way although not all items are official. There is also a bakery and supermarket in the town which offer the opportunity to buy food and drink at much cheaper prices than the circuit. Bear in mind that they do not allow you to take in cans or glass bottles.
At present, (2004) the Circuit de Catalunya holds a pit lane walkabout on Thursday prior to the Grand Prix. This is available to holders of three day tickets and is held in two session - 10AM to 12.30PM and 4PM to 7PM. If you want to try and spot Formula One drivers, I would recommend the afternoon session. We waited at the circuit main entrance from around 12.30PM -1.30PM and saw half of the Formula One grid driving in and managed to get a couple of f1 driver autographs. If you are lucky and there is not too big a crowd some drivers will stop to sign.
Once inside the circuit follow the signs for pit lane visit. The queue starts to form around one hour before the gates open and we chose to wait at the front. This enabled is to be right outside the Renault garage and get autographs of Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso. If you want to get photographs/autographs, the best bet is to choose a driver or team, get a good place and stay put. It is always crowded around the teams at the sharp end of the grid. Alternatively, you can walk up and down the pit lane, see the teams working on the cars, practising pit stops etc. Definitely worth it if you can spare the time.
On Friday, you can sit in any of the grandstands so we took the opportunity to try out the stadium section and the main grandstand opposite the pits. Our Saturday and Sunday tickets were for grandstand N and offered good value, although over the last few years prices have increased. Dependent on your location within the stand you can see the cars exiting Wurth, accelerating past, through Campsa, and down the straight towards the stadium section. Our seats this year were a little disappointing compared to previous visits but the big TV screen helps you to keep up with the action. English commentary is available on circuit radio along with Spanish, Catalan and French. The frequency for English is 103FM.
After the race the trains obviously get very crowded. But on the whole, the station is well organised and a number of special additional trains are available running directly from Montmelo to the Barcelona stations. These are quicker than the regular commuter trains which stop at a few smaller stations en route.
To complete our break in Spain, we took a trip up to Girona on the Tuesday after the race, again using the local train network. The old city is definitely worth a look with it's churches, quaint cobbled streets and abundance of shops, bars and restaurants. It provides an alternative for those which have either stayed in Barcelona before or are looking for something different.
Overall we had a great trip and look forward to visiting again ASAP!!
