Hello and welcome to Barcelona!

Hi I’m Richard, the person behind Barcelona Lowdown

I moved to Barcelona in 2001 and started this blog in 2013 as a place to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for my adopted hometown.

In addition to writing about popular tourist attractions, I also share information about lesser-known sites plus insider tips that will help make your visit unique and unforgettable.

If you’re new to the blog I suggest you go to the home page and start browsing my latest posts.

You can also check out the most popular posts listed in the sidebar or use the search box at the top of the page.

I’m here to help

If you have a question related to any of the articles on this site, leave me a message in the comments section at the end of each post and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Questions about something which I haven’t written about yet? No problem, drop me a line via the contact form and I’ll do my best to help.

Keep in touch

You can stay up to date with the latest posts by following the Barcelona Lowdown Facebook page.

I also share interesting stuff about Barcelona from around the web on Twitter and my best photos on Instagram as @BCNLowdown.

Enjoy Barcelona!
