Barcelona is a city so gorgeous and lively that you’ll never run out of things to look at or do here. But plan your family trip with our list of kid-tested top 25 things to do in Barcelona and even the fussiest kid will be charmed by the Catalan capital.

From giant slides to aquariums to Gaudi—and with a good dose of ice cream thrown in, these Barcelona attractions are sure to keep everyone engaged.
