If you were to sum up your Barcelona experience in one to two words, what would you say? My Barcelona Experience is…

Wow, just wow.

What was your favorite place to eat in Barcelona? Favorite food?

The paella and octopus at Bosque Palmero paired with a bottle of their house red wine can’t be beat.

Is there a site in Barcelona that you would recommend to future students that may be a little more “off the beaten path”?

Montserrat. Just do it!

If you had one perfect day in Barcelona where would you go, and what would you do?

First head to the beach at Poble Nou and have some pan con jamón y queso while catching some rays. Then siesta to get ready for a long night of getting rowdy like Gaudí at old faithful Bling Bling.

What is one piece of advice that you have for future students coming to Barcelona?

Never leave.
