A day when a great number of businesses close their doors for rest, Sunday is meant to be enjoyed. If the weather is nice, with no sign of rain, then why not spend your day outdoors?
Go to Parc de la Ciutadella
Located in the heart of Barcelona, Parc de la Ciutadella is one of the most famous green spaces in the city. Visit the park on a Sunday and you will find people of all ages taking a stroll, playing instruments and singing, walking on slacklines, dancing, reading or walking their dogs.
Pack some snacks, call up some friends, and choose your spot for a nice Sunday picnic.
Have a photoshoot in Parc del Laberint d’Horta
Another park that you should visit on a Sunday is Parc del Laberint d’Horta.

With its lush green surroundings and fresh mountain air, Parc del Laberint d’Horta is a great place for a nice peaceful walk.
