Wandering free at your own pace has no price!
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city with different touristic areas which give you the feeling that there is more than one city center. In my opinion, and the way I see how souvenirs stores, restaurants, tours and different services are growing in or next to these places, makes me think they are distributed this way:
- The Gothic Quarter
- Sagrada Familia and Sant Pau
- Park Güell
- Plaza de España and Montjuic
- Gracia Neighborhood
- Passeig de Gracia, Plaça Cataluña and Las Ramblas
- El Born
- La Barceloneta
The thing is that Barcelona is not about visiting a museum, a church or a house. I think it´s more about enjoying the weather, the sun in your face, the beach, the architecture, the narrow streets, seen the people and of course been able to reach from one point to another one taking the most beautiful path. And, in my opinion, the best way you can enjoy Barcelona is with a bike, also because the city is structured with bike lines so you can use them safely.
Now I will give you some places near the ones I mentioned earlier so you can go and use this wonderful transportation. There are ones like the Park Güell and Montjuic which I don´t see it convenient to go on a bike because it´s located uphill and it´s kind of exhausting. I also organize them by reviews so you can choose the better ones.
In the Gothic Quarter (Las Ramblas included):

I hope this blog suits its purpose and help you out with your transportation choice.
