What I did and saw:
The legendary home of the Barcelona Football Club is Camp Nou in Les Corts. It is one of the largest and most iconic stadiums in the world, and carries a massive amount of local cultural significance. The stands are painted to say "Més que un club" which literally means "more than a club." At one time, Camp Nou was the only place Catalonians could speak their own language. I had the opportunity to watch one of the greatest players of all time, Leo Messi, play at Camp Nou a couple different times, and they were awesome experiences.
Where I ate and drank:
Cerveseria El Tap-
If you are looking for great craft beer and tasty food, Cerveseria El Tap in Les Corts is a great place to go. They have a nice variety of beer options and their food was great as well.
Hidden Café Barcelona-
The best coffee I've had in Les Corts is at Hidden Cafe. In addition to serving tasty coffee they also roast their own beans. They offer excellent filter options that are served with a card that provides the origin information and tasting notes of the coffee.
Bendita Helena is a nice cafe in Les Corts that offers some quality, healthy options as well as some tasty, indulgent options.
Every year Barcelona will have a Hotel Tapa Tour, where participating hotel bars will offer small portions of excellent food and drink for an affordable price. One of the locations I visited for the Hotel Tapa Tour was Cheeso in the Meliá hotel. Both the food and drink they offered were very tasty.
My favorite thing:
My favorite thing about Les Corts is going to the legendary Camp Nou. It is an experience that is hard to top.
My least favorite thing:
There isn't much to dislike about Les Corts but it is outside of the city center where many of the other main sites in Barcelona are.
