There used to be a nice House of Ill Repute about 3 blocks East of the train station, but these days, most people go there to gawk at the Art Deco architecture.

La Sagrada Familia is a must see.

The old town but watch out for local scammers and pickpockets. Same for La Rambla, keep to the north end as it gets a bit dicey towards the south end.

Good tapas everywhere.
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
