The reason why I am so spellbond by Barcelona is its magic architecture: Modernisme, the Catalan version of Art Nouveau or Jugendstil is omnipresent. Therefore, don't walk down the steps of the metro, walk down the streets. Look and enjoy the beauty of Barcelona.
If you don't want to walk alone, if you want to see behind the fin de siècle facades, take Daniel Brühl with you. He's tiny. You can put the actor in your purse and let him talk to you. He speaks German, Spanish and Catalan. And he will tell you about his city, where he was born as the son of a German TV director and his Spanish mother. A day in Barcelona:
He takes you to up Tibidabo, a mountain overlooking Barcelona. After you've enjoyed those spectacular views, he takes you down to the city: To the quarters of Sant Gervasi, Montjuïc, Gracìa, Born, El Raval and will show you all his favorite secret spots, (which then, can't be be secret anymore). He will tell you how he found the best peas in town for a delicious paella and what Camp Nou means to him.
