Barcelona Street Scraps

Blogger Brian, who's lived in Barcelona for nearly a decade uses the internet to “catch 'em before they're painted over or scraped away” and by “'em” Brian means street art and graffiti. His Street Scraps blog chronicles the activities of one of the world's hottest locations for street art.

Tons of street photography, tips on where to see the best graff interviews and more make this blog well worth a browse.

Fleas and Dogs in Barcelona

Originally from India, blogger Prithika sees her blog as an opportunity to share “the good, the bad, the ugly and the downright hilarious” of life in Barcelona. She shares the “stuff which makes it into tourist brochures and travel magazines” such as the art and “super cool bars” as well as the “quirky, strange or disturbing stuff” for a thorough and loving examination of this dynamic city.

If you don't mind having to “side step the prostitutes, pimps and pickpockets,” here's a rec for a great local bar.

FoodBarcelona

Warning: don't read this blog if you're on a diet! Featuring info on the best restaurants along with reviews and recipes from a local foodie, this is the site to bookmark for planning a gastro tour of the town.

It's not just about the Catalan cuisine either. Ever wonder where to get an authentic Neapolitan pizza in Barcelona?

Guiri Girl in Barca

Julie Sheridan is a “native Scot who upped sticks in April 2011 and headed to the Catalan capital” and seems to have never looked back. Her blog features “musings, observations, stories, experiences, and no doubt the occasional rant” but “most of all” it's a celebration of her life in Cataluña.  

Heading to Barcelona and hoping to tap into some local knowledge via your handheld devices? Julie reckons she knows the five best apps for making the most of your visit.

Hola Yessica!

Jessica (or Yessica as she's called in Spain) isa twentysomething Brit who grew up in California and now calls Barcelona home. Her blog features plenty of photos and advice based on her frequent travels but always comes back to her beloved Barcelona.
