1.SAGRADA FAMILIA - KIDS EDITION
Sagrada Familia is the most iconic attraction in the entire city of Barcelona and your kids are going to like it a lot, especially if you go at sunset! While you enjoy the stunning interior of Antoni Gaudi’s masterpiece, your kids can share an audio guide or just wander around and admire the stunning architecture.
If you want to visit one of the most famous European attractions AND skip the long line to it, I highly recommend to pre-book your tickets! The entrance fee is 17€ for adults, children under the age of 11 can enter for free.
2. CASA BATLLO - KIDS EDITION
If you are going to visit Casa Batllo with kids, you will definitely make their visit unforgettable by taking a dramatized theatrical tour of Casa Batllo. Either Gaudí himself or Lady Ramoneta – the Batlló family’s housekeeper – will show you the nooks and crannies of the house and tell you unforgettable anecdotes!
NOTE: The theatrical tour takes place only on Sundays and children under the age of 7 can enter for free. The price for adults is 37€.
3. MAGIC FOUNTAINS SHOW
The Magic Fountains are located at Plaça d’Espanya (the closest metro is called the same, but it is about 8 minutes walking from the station) and there is an evening fountain show every day. You can check the updated schedule here.
4. PORTAVENTURA THEME PARK
Port Aventura park offers rides for all ages – from super cute Sesame street rides for 3-year-olds to thrilling rides for teenagers (and yourself, why not?). It also has the fastest and tallest ride in Europe, so it is definitely one of the best things to do with kids!
