It is also home to Barcelona's old bull-fighting ring which is now nothing but a shell, albeit quite a beautiful one.The main draw to Plaça Espanya is the Palau Nacional which is the Museum of Catalan art, stands regally up on the side of Montjuïc. It's stunning and there is never a better time to see it than when it is lit up at night with the Magic Fountain in front.

Barceloneta

(Source: Las chofas de Jumber)
Barceloneta is the first of the Barcelona beaches and can therefore get quite busy during the summer months. The picture of Barceloneta beach above was taken on 3rd of October, and the sun is still shining! But it's not always like this. Some days can be overcast or even rainy -it's the luck of the draw. The best way to reach this amazing beach is by Metro. The nearest metro station to the beach is "Barceloneta" (Yellow Line, L4). You need to turn right on leaving the metro and cross the main road, continue walking straight along Passeig de Joan de Borbo for about 10 minutes. You will see the marina area on your right as you walk.
 
There are many things to do on the beach besides swim. One can go for windsurfing and kite surfing or you can also enjoy a refreshing drink from one of the many beach huts. Or, if you're in need to relax, just lie down and soak up the warmth of the Spanish sun with a good book.
 
You can spend half a day at the beach and return to your hotel by the evening as you have to head back to Schouweiler the next day.

Day 6

This is the last day of your trip you need to head back to your home. Make sure you pack all your belongings carefully and reach airport three hours’ prior your flight timings. 
 
I hope the destinations mentioned, according to your interest will lead to a memorable trip. I wish you return with the most exciting experience and memories of your life. 
 
Have a wonderful trip!
