Barcelona in two days
Start your day with a walking tour. I would recommend Sandeman’s walking tours. In the afternoon, check out the History Museum. It is pretty detailed and has remains of the historic Roman city of Baracine.
Then head to check out Gaudi’s architecture at Sagrada Church (which is under construction for 100+ years), Casa Batllo, Casa Mila, or Palau Guell. All of these have hefty entry ticket prices, and I would recommend going inside at least one of these.
Head towards the beach, Playa de Catalunya afterward. There are several road-side vendors, some selling food and some cheap knock-offs of popular brands.
