How would you spend 36 hours in Barcelona?
I would go surfing at the barceloneta followed by a great lunch at a "braseria", then a gentle ride with my bike around the old town. At night a good dinner with my friends at a restaurant in the Raval and then drinks at my favourite club Apolo in the paralel. Next day I would enjoy a great day at the beach in Sitges, just outside the city.
