Danny’s Point: The Skaters’ Guide Through Barcelona

In this episode of Danny’s Point he takes you on a guided tour of Barcelona. Pack up your skates, because now you can go and explore this beautiful city like a local. Danny has his  Rollerblade® RB80  skates ready to roll, so let’s get started.

Danny kicks of his tour at Plaça d'Espanya in the southwest of Barcelona. From there he climbs up Montjuïc and enjoys the breath-taking view. The next stop is in the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA). Cataluña’s museum of contemporary art is in the center of Barcelona, and well worth a visit. Since you are following Rollerblade® on Instagram and FaceBook, you will recognize Danny’s next location, the Avinguda del Parallel.  This is a unique spot in the city as it allows legal graffiti.  It is a great skate spot and offers lots of photo opportunities. Next Danny cruises to the Balearic Sea and catches some sunshine on the beach at the W Hotel, his favorite place to relax.  It is also the perfect location for the start of a Rollerblade® 10K Challenge. Danny continues to his favorite place to skate at the Parc del Forum. This location next to the sea offers a smooth skating surface and concrete waves that are perfect to skate. Danny ends his tour through Barcelona at Ruta Roex where he joins a group of hundreds of skaters that tour Barcelona at night.


 



These are the gems of Barcelona that Danny wants you to get out and enjoy. Whether you live in, or are just planning a visit to Barcelona, remember Danny’s Point Skaters’ Guide is the way to go.
