A weekend trip to Barcelona is always a good idea. This time I wanted to visited my friend in Manresa. So we did just a day trip to Barcelona and the rest in and around Manresa.

Hiking around the Montserrat
The last day I only traveled. This was a long day!
I flew from Amsterdam to Barcelona, where a friend was waiting for me, it was great to do the trip with someone because I already had a little knowledge about this destination and it was a great support to be able to visit even more things. The same day I arrived, after a long flight we visited Barcelona. There wasn't much time to lose because they are cities where there is a lot to know and all the routes are quite long and expensive. After doing various tourist things and spending the whole day walking, we went to his house in Manresa. It is a small city near Barcelona but very welcoming, without a doubt a must-see if you want to visit and discover something not so common. I stayed here for 3 nights, the weather was quite favorable as it was mild, and despite being a small city we did a lot of things like exploring Manresa, a day trip to Montserrat and eating tapas!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
The last day I only traveled, which was a very long day. First I needed to get back to Barcelona. After I needed to go to the airport and then I waited for a long time to catch my flight. So this was not ideal. Maybe next time I would take a taxi so that I save some time to do another activity.
How was the food?
Playa de Sol has many nice tapas places. Besides in Manresa you have this beautiful lake (Parc de la sequía) with a cute restaurant.
In March it can be already sunny. I would recommend to wear a t-shirt with a blouse or something and maybe a rain coat.
Trains work pretty good in Spain!
It surprised me how less people could speak English in Manresa. I'm glad I was with my Spanish speaking friend!
I don't know anything about the hotels or airbnbs in Manresa..
