The Top 20 Travel Blogs in Barcelona in 2019

After extensive research, we’re proud to announce the 20 best blogs you can find for travelling to Barcelona as of 2019!

The selection process…

Travelling is about experiencing the best of what a new city can offer and a great place to find inspiration is in blogs. However, it can be a jungle to navigate through the many blogs and content you can find online. Therefore, our team has scoured the internet looking for the best travel blogs in Barcelona.

The 20 blogs that have made the final list have been selected following a selection according to 4 criteria:

  • Quality of the content
  • The practicality of the tips and pieces of advice
  • Purpose of the blog
  • Originality

In this award, you will find talented photographers, skilled writers, wanderlust addicts, foodies, family travellers, and eco-friendly travellers. Additionally, it is necessary to mention that some websites awarded are not, strictly speaking, travel blogs. However, in every case, the usefulness of their tips or their great content have convinced us to include them.

All 20 blogs have made it as “Best 20 Travel Blogs in 2019” meaning the order is random.

We would like to congratulate all the bloggers that made the Top 20 thanks to their awesome work!

Forever Barcelona

ForeverBarcelona is a private tour company specializing in Barcelona tours, and we started our blog with the goal of providing lots of tips and ideas for our customers as well as other travellers who might not be able to take a private tour but will definitely benefit from our knowledge – and we love sharing our passion for Barcelona!
Barcelona has many faces, and we love discussing all of them in our blog: sometimes we share local traditions, some other times we make hotel or restaurant recommendations, we can discuss politics or history or offer travel tips that are specific for Barcelona such as travel or opening hours. We summarize information that would take hours of research to gather together and that is often not so easy to find on guide books. And our readers often say how useful our posts were to help them organize their trip beyond their touring with us. That makes us so proud!

Appetite and Other Stories

I come from a very food-friendly family, a lot of our time is spent talking about food, eating food or planning what to prep next. So I kind of have it in my genes. I started Appetite & other stories to recommend my favourite spots and hidden gems in my home town Barcelona that are not normally featured on the hip list and hight be flying under the radar.
I want to high light restaurants that have as a “mission” to serve good food. A lot of time I write about local cuisine and great experiences where the guest can interact and learn more about the food and culture.

Matt is a true reference in travel blogging. This Boston native is a New York Times best-selling author thanks to his book on money-saving trips. After meeting backpackers in Thaïland, Matt realized that he wanted to dedicate his life to discovering the world full-time and hasn’t stopped travelling since. His blog is an extensive source of information for all types of traveller (Solo Female, Couples, Seniors etc.) thanks his experience of travelling to more than 80 countries in 12 years. This Barcelona Itinerary is a must-read.

Kiki is a California native, who, not too long ago left her career in corporate finance to become a world traveller.

Foodie in Barcelona is a blog with weekly posts, exploring one address at a time. The posts are written in the tone I would use with a friend, sharing quirky details and giving tips on everything from what to order to make sure to take a trip to the washrooms if they are particularly special. I pick places on merit with a special interest in those that are small and independent and trying to do something different, bonus points if they are working with food in season and KM 0. .


Barcelona Museum

Barcelona Museum was founded in 2013 and, as the name implies, the site is dedicated to Barcelona’s museums and attractions. In addition to the top 10 sights such as Sagrada Familia or the Picasso Museum, you will also find unknown and hidden museums such as the Temple of Augustus, the MEAM or the Modernism Museum.

Not Home Syndrome

Not Home Syndrome is written by a nomadic free-lance journalist who has travelled to more countries than she has years in age. “Not Home Syndrome: Barcelona” contains an assortment of blogs about Barcelona- the city, its culture, and the politics of the Catalan independence movement.  The blog was started as the author moved from Moscow to Barcelona to reinvent herself. She was charmed by the multiculturalism, liberalism, and spirit of the Catalan people. As a Communications Specialist, she is deeply interested in the framing of the Catalan Independence movement in Western media.

Driftwood Journals

I set up Driftwood Journals after moving to Barcelona in 2009 and falling head over heels in love with the food, people and culture. I admire the way Catalans live their lives and am fascinated by their traditions and cultural quirks. So many travellers think of Barcelona as being another Spanish city of “sun, sea and sangria”, but there’s so much more to it than that. With over 2,000 years of history to explore and an immensely independent sense of cultural identity, the Catalan capital really does it have all. I’m passionate about meaningful and responsible travel and, through my writing and photographytry to encourage visitors to dig deeper, to celebrate and preserve Barcelona’s unique charms while connecting with local people and their way of life.
