As part of my internship abroad in Barcelona, my parents visited me for 5 days and I showed them the city. We did almost everything on foot or use the subway.
There is so much to see in Barcelona that you can spend several weeks there. But even in a week you can discover the main attractions of the city. In general, you should beware of the numerous pickpockets.

La Paradeta Sagrada Família, Passatge de Simó, Barcelona, Spain
Great fish restaurant! If you can speak a bit of Spanish you should definitely eat here. You order the fish / seafood stating in grams and say how you would like it to be prepared (e.g. grilled, deep-fried, etc.) The restaurant is more like a cantine and you have to get your food yourself after calling your number.
I will definitely go to Barcelona again because the city has so much to offer that you can't get bored. The flair of Barcelona is something very special!
