Give yourself a little visual stimulation as you plan your trip to Barcelona with these top Instagram accounts. From knowing where to eat and what to wear, to finding the best hangout and fitness spots, these local Instagrammers will help you find your Barcelona inspiration.


Street photographer Neburruben discovered his passion for photography in 2011 and, since then, he’s been inseparable from his camera. His work captures simple scenes of daily life, offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what life is really like in the Catalan capital, never failing to make us fall endlessly more in love with the city.

Zucker and Spice

Originally from Boston, USA, Sam Zucker fell in love with the Catalan capital a while back. After studying cookery in New York, he made a name for himself as a local restaurant reviewer and food writer. He also works as a local tour guide and knows the city like the back of his hand – which is probably why his photos never fail to capture the quirks and charm of Barcelona.
