5 things you must do in Barcelona while at SLAS Europe (according to a local)

 

Here’s how to make your trip memorable.

 

La Sagrada Familia

 

1. Be awe-inspired at La Sagrada Familia

There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world. Architecture, nature and spirituality come together to create a unique experience. Always packed with tourists, make sure to buy your tickets online ahead of time.

 

Mercado de la Boqueria

 

2. Eat everything at Mercado de la Boqueria

La Boqueria is a temple for prepared food and fresh produce in the heart of Las Ramblas. Sit down for a few tapas and then walk around the market and marvel at the seafood stands.

 

Gothic Quarters

 

3. Get lost in El Born and the Gothic Quarters

These two areas, with narrow, winding streets, are next to each other. They offer traditional tapas bars and cafés alongside trendy shops from local designers.

 

Painting

 

4. Let out your inner Picasso

Take a break from conference madness at the NanoTemper booth 113-114. You’ll have an opportunity to be inspired by Spanish painters and create your own artistic masterpiece. Intrigued? Don’t miss out!
