Barcelona Vs Madrid
Madrid vs Barcelona... Could be the 21st century's tale of two cities, it is definitely the real "clasico", in terms of football of course but also just about everything else: from architecture to gastronomy, from culture to lifestyle, from entertainment to geography.
Madrid has certainly more titles in la Liga and the Champion's League, but for design and architecture, Barcelona is one step ahead with iconic landmarks such as la Sagrada Familia -- certainly one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. Madrid cannot compete in that area, it is a clear win for Barcelona.
However Madrid has more famous museums like the Prado, the Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Barcelona has the beach and the Mediterranean sea, Madrid does not.
Madrid has a more vibrant and active nightlife than Barcelona.
Barcelona offers more cultural events and festivals like Primavera, Sonar sound festival, Sant Jordi or the neighborhood celebrations of Gracia and Merce.
Going to the movies is more affordable in Barcelona than Madrid's €16.70 single-ticket!
Barcelona has greater weather than Madrid where it is too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.Kids are well looked after in both Madrid and Barcelona. There are some good science museums in both cities. Kids will appreciate the modern art of Picasso and Dali (perhaps even more than most adults), and there's plenty of it in both cities. But it is Barcelona's modernist art like Parc Güell that will capture the children's imagination best.
For foodies it might be a little bit cheaper to eat in Madrid, but if you want to taste great food, Barcelona is your city with its Michelin starred restaurants, its creativity and audacity, even the tapas and the paellas are better in Barcelona.For the Littleboboon team, it's a tie: if you want to have a great weekend with nice weather, sunbathing on the beach, beautiful architecture and incredible creative food, Barcelona is your pick. But if a lively nightlife, cheap tapas and great museums are what you are looking for then you will have to go for Madrid.
