Visit Barcelona Attractions on a Budget

Barcelona is one of the most breath-taking cities across the whole of Europe.  The destination often catches the attention of travellers thanks to its huge number of must-see attractions.

Better yet, most of these tourist sites are free to explore and those that charge for entry typically ask for only a small fee at the door.  This makes Barcelona a perfect destination for those hoping to enjoy a budget holiday in Spain.

Here are just three affordable attractions that travellers should definitely visit while in Barcelona:

Sagrada Familia

Sagrada FamiliaArguably the most famous attraction in Barcelona, Sagrada Familia astonishes thousands of tourists every year who visit the city to see the Giant Temple that was designed under the guidance of master architect Antonio Gaudi.

The epic scale of the building is evidenced by the fact that construction began back in 1882 and experts estimate that the temple will not be fully completed for as possibly long as another 80 years.  This would mean that the construction phase of this historic structure would have taken well over 200 years to complete.

Despite it being an unfinished masterpiece, tourists only need to pay €13 (approximately $17) in order to venture inside. However, there is plenty to be seen by admiring the vast cathedral on the outside for those who want to keep their spending to a minimum.

Picasso Museum

Picasso MuseumWhere better to visit after one of the most famous attractions in Barcelona than a museum dedicated to quite possibly the most renowned Spanish artist?

The Picasso Museum is entirely dedicated to Pablo Picasso and is a perfect way to see why the Spaniard was highly praised for his work.

Visitors can get an up-close look at a large collection of the artist’s paintings in chronological order, ranging from pieces that he created in his early days to masterpieces which came about towards the end of his extraordinary life.

What’s more, travelers who visit the Picasso Museum on the first Sunday of the month are in for an extra special treat, as the museum is free to enter at that time.  Any other day of the month, the entry fee is €11 (approximately $14).

Barcelona FC Museum

Barcelona FC MuseumNo matter how passionate a person is about football, there is no denying the huge influence that Barcelona FC has had on popular culture over the past century.

Have a more in-depth look at these achievements here.

While in Barcelona, travelers can celebrate the huge success of the club even more by visiting the Barcelona FC Museum. A fee of €23 (approximately $30) for adults and €17 (approximately $22) for children on the door grants one the opportunity to view all of these sparkling trophies, as well as pictures marking key moments in the team’s fabled history and statures honoring past soccer greats.
