Discover a different Barcelona
This site is here to give you the tips you need to explore a part of central Barcelona that’s easy to reach but away from the tourist traps – the less known streets for sightseeing , with pictures to give you a feeling for all the places to be enjoyed off the beaten track and away from the crowds. We’ll also tell you about where you can stay, eat, stop for a coffee, visit public gardens etc., with a rough price guide so you can plan your day.
Click on the categories on the right to see street-by-street guides, shopping, restaurants, cafés, getting around and so on. We’ll be adding new information all the time, so keep checking in for updates. For the moment, all the content is about the Eixample and Gracia, but we’ll be adding other areas for those wishing to explore further afield in the future.
If you’d like to add your own comments or tips for other visitors to the site, you’re most welcome.
Thank you for visiting myDiagonal and come back soon!
(PS – I’ll be publishing random posts about nothing in particular every now and then)
