From Free to Cheap in Barcelona

As an expat trying to enjoy the city to its fullest, Barcelona can get pricey but here are a few places you can have a great time, eat like a king and drink like a fish.

Museums

Barcelona is filled with so much history, so their museums are absolutely fantastic and beautiful. The first Sunday of every month most of the museums in Barcelona are open to the public for free. My favourites are:

v  Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya – a beautiful art museum with a gorgeousfountain out front.

v  The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona – which always has lectures, exhibitions, concerts, festivals and plenty more running.
v  Museu Picasso – a 51 year old museum, set in 5 glorious stone mansions, that has over 4000 works by the artist Pablo Picasso. A great place to get lost in.

Restaurants and Bars

Besides the great party spots and beautiful beaches, Barcelona is known for their great food and bars. It does get very pricey but there are a few places where you will be able to stuff yourself with great food and alcohol very cheaply.

v  Romero – located in Eixample, this cosy restaurant looks incredibly classy while being incredibly affordable. The food is amazing and the desserts are to die for. You will have to try their homemade chocolate truffles!

v  Cat Bar – this bar is like no other place. It is a cat themed vegan artisan bar that offers burgers, wheat free meal options and has 9 assorted beers on tap.

v  Woki Market – An organic restaurant, you can enjoy fresh simple food for very little.

v Buenas Migas – This popular restaurant chain that can be found all over city offers homemade focaccia pizzas, salads, sandwiches and pastries. For only €7.60 you can get a delicious focaccia pizza and a side order of pasta.

v   Gelida – Another Eixample location, this gem is unpretentious and cheap. They even have their own in house wine cellar and with options like veal stew, pork pies, tortillas and even snails, who could say no?!
