I'll be in Barcelona for around a week arriving thursday.

Recommendations, besides the regular Lonely Planet/Trip Advisor/touristy ones, would be much appreciated!

Avoid the Ramblas. Unless if overpriced things, terrible food, and constantly being bothered by Pakistanis wanting to sell you crap is your thing.

The Gothic district (which is quite near the Ramblas actually) is the best for food, drinks and general atmosphere. The Basílica de Santa María del Mar is also more beautful than the famous Sagrada Familia. If you still plan on going to the latter, though, buy a ticket online, or you will have to wait in line for 2-3 hours.

I've also been told that the Carrer dels Tallers has some nice metal shops in it, but I didn't have time to check it out myself when I went there in May. It's very close to the central Plaça de Catalunya.

Planning on avoiding the Ramblas all together.....I'm sure I can have my pockets picked elsewhere without having to rub shoulders with the tourist elite Smile

Did the mandatory Gaudi (etc) tour some years back. Might check back in on the Sagrada Familia, La Seu and Santa María del Mar....

Will check out Carrer dels Tallers. Thanks
