    Visited there in June of '91 after spending a semester in Sevilla. One of my favorite big cities in the world - a very cool place.

    Went in the summer of 2002 ............. arrived the day after the WC. Barcelona is awesome. I fell in love with the place and decided to root for Barcelona after I took a tour of their stadium. Absolutely awesome.

    wasn't able to attend a game due to the winter break, but the city is definitely amazing. i am already planning for a return trip after graduating. a london-barcelona combo is a very good and cheap one.

    Was there for a few days in summer 2003. Gorgeous city. Had been to Spain 3 times, but only Barca once. Screw Madrid, take me to Barcelona and Marbella.

    I took the stadium tour and was in awe of the history and sheer size of the Nou Camp.

    I visited Barcelona for about a week in March 2003. Staying at a hostel on La Rambla, I split my time between Barcelona and Vic, taking the hour-long train ride each time. I saw a massive anti-war protest (the U.S. and its allies started bombing Iraq a day before I left).

    It is a gorgeous city and in fact it was in preparing for my trip that I got hooked on Barca. I'm ready to go back anytime and this time, I will try to get to a game at the Camp Nou.

    Going there in a couple of months for the semester. Can't wait. Hopefully I'll see some games while I'm in Spain too!

    I have been there twice in the early parts of the 90's.
    Although, my next visit will be in exactly two weeks, this time it will last 5 days opposed to the short term visits of 2 and 3 days in the past. I am excited about going over to the Camp Nuo for a tour and checking out the Mega store (don’t know what it is but I prefer buying the training gear opposed to the kits....but i do want those red home shorts). Aside from FCB, there are tons of attractions that are on my itinerary, along with boat loads of food and wine waiting to be ingested.

    Been to Barcelona two times for holidays, back in 96 and then again in 98 i think it was....
    Both times i went there in the summer time and it was great. Lots of culture and a beautiful city, food was awsome too.

    Would love to go again in the future. Have yet to visit the stadium.
