Important to know about Barcelona: many things are, by nature, touristy, which makes sense when you consider that this is one of the most visited cities in the world. The key is knowing which popular places are worth their struggles. Els Pescadors will set you back a few Euros, but this is the king of traditional and delicious Catalan seafood, and its location outside of city center means only the determined of tourists will get there.
