Just have a few questions regarding our trip to Barcelona from 11th-14th June. We are a hen party of 14 ladies! We have an apartment very near to Urquinaona metro station so this appears to be very centrally located.
We will be heading down to the beach for the first few days, would it be best to hop on the metro down to Barceloneta or how far roughly would it be to walk? And what could we see along the walk?
How busy will Barceloneta beach be at this time of year? And will there be sun loungers for rent if so are they expensive?
My friend (bride to be) would like to visit the place where there is lovely views over the city. From my research I believe this to be Montjuic or Park Guell? If we had to choose just one, which would be the best to visit?
I think on the Friday 13th we will do some sightseeing/shopping....would the sagrada familia be really busy on a Friday? If we didn't manage to get there early, could we just turn up later on and get tickets easily? Also, where would be a good place to go for shopping, not high end or retail shopping, was thinking more boutique/market shopping with quirky items that are a bit different to that in the normal uk high street?
Also, just wondering if there is any local street food/snacks to try? I have heard of Orxata and would like to try this, will I be able to find this quite easily?
Oh just one more thing for now, we will be doing a fancy dress up night on our first night there, I know the clubs wont allow us entry, but I am just looking for some recommendations for an area with a few bars where we will be welcome even in fancy dress?
Sorry the questions are all quite random! Thank you for any advice!
