Whoever said Paris is always a good idea never met Barcelona. Barcelona is a world on it’s own where food is celebrated and the bohemian streets are our hideaway. Top 10 places to eat in Barcelona has been written after 8 days of being in Barcelona. I have another long month to find out more places but here are the Top 10 places to eat in Barcelona you MUST try! Barcelona is and always will be my greatest idea!

As part of the #NotATourist Campaign with Visa, we will be sharing stories, articles and tips on destinations across the world.
The NotATourist campaign is designed to inspire travel beyond the regular tourist sites to savour truly local experiences that are the essence of making a destination unique. The campaign is there to help travellers explore destinations as local inhabitants – not as tourists – by providing local knowledge using crowd sourced digital content that is showcased on Visa’s NotATourist website and the Visa Explore mobile app. NotATourist also offers travelers a platform to describe the many facets of a destination by sharing their own images, videos, posts and comments, making them ambassadors or tour guides of their favourite travel spots.
To participate in #NotATourist all you need to do is use the hashtag and tag @visamiddleeast for us to find you and we will share your stories and images.
The campaign invites users to share content on social media using the hashtag ‘#NotATourist’ and will give participants a chance to win a weekly prize of US$500 for submitting pictures, videos or tips on how to find ‘secret’ and little-known spots or experiences in key travel destinations. In August, Visa will announce two Ultimate #NotATourist content contributors who will each be awarded a travel package worth US$5000. Here is Top 10 places to eat in Barcelona.
