A major Spanish wine distributor with a really good selection of both local and international wines, Vila Viniteca opened in 1932 and is now a third generation family-run business. Their main wine shop is on Agullers, next door to which is Vila Viniteca's gourmet grocery store, which stocks small bites, cheeses, and cooked meats. This smaller wine outpost in Les Corts is located inside the shopping mall, L'illa Diagonal.

Watching this storied club play at their home stadium is a bucket list item for fútbol aficionados. But seeing a game there is really an incredibly cool experience even if you don't know who Lionel Messi is. The stadium, which was originally constructed in the mid-1950's, now seats a staggering 99,000+ people, many of whom are die-hard fans, meaning the collective energy of the crowd can be insane. If you're planning a trip to Barcelona during season, check the team's schedule to see if they're at home while you're in town. Although the games can get rowdy, this can also make a really fun outing for kids (who are old enough to sit for a couple hours) and teen travelers.
