Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2014 – Things to do in the city
At the end of the month is coming MWC14, where Plunge Interactive will have its presence as usual. The trade show is the most important in the world of the mobile industry, so everyone is coming!
As a catalan company, some clients, colleagues and friends are asking us what to do those days in Barcelona, where to go, what to eat, etc. We have received many times the same question, so since we are always very happy to help, we have prepared a selection of cool things to do (in our opinion) during your stay in Barcelona when you leave the show.
1 Columbus monument
The columbus monument is an old construction at one extreme of the famous “Rambla de Barcelona” in front of the Mediterranean Sea. What is cool about it, and many people don’t know about, is that you can go to the top by an elevator. But the excitement are not only the scenic views, but also the vibrations and instability that you will feel at the top. Not recomendable if you are afraid of the heights.
2 Fairy forest (“Bosc de les Fades”)
This place is very close to the Columbus monument, behind the Wax museum in the “Ramblas”. It’s just a bar, but with an impressive decoration that evokes a magical forest. The place uses to be very crowded… you will be lucky if you find a place to seat, but it worths trying it, or at least just walk around, because the place is beautiful.
A recommendation: don’t disturb the Elfs…
3 Eat real delicious and cheap tapas!
You can’t say you’ve been in Barcelona if you don’t eat good tapas. This is a basque style tapas that I would describe as: creative kitchen, delicious and economic! You can find it very close to the “Estació de Sants”, one of the main train stations of Barcelona, well connected to the Metro. You can find it here.
Those are just a few places… there are many more, just google for:
- Aquarium Barcelona (you can swim with sharks, but need to book!)
- Modernism architecture in Barcelona
- Liceu Theater
- CosmoCaixa museum (it has its own jungle with free animals, fish and plants!)
That’s all! we hope you enjoy Barcelona as much as we do!
