Melika Razavi, one of the world’s most influential poker players, travels the globe playing the card game. Her recent trip to Barcelona is one of her most memorable. She was in the city for the 888Poker All Ladies event.
“Playing in Barcelona was incredible. The location and the people are amazing. I try my best to focus before a big tournament, and I do so by just exploring the city that I am in,” she told IOL Travel.
Razavi shares her top 4 spots in Barcelona:
La Sagrada Familia: The spectacular Roman Catholic church in Barcelona is designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
“This unique construction is one of Barcelona's most famous tourist attractions. It is worth visiting,” she said.
Magic Fountain of Montjuïc: Magic Fountain is the main feature of a complex of fountains, cascades and pools on Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, the street running from the Palau Nacional to Plaça d'Espanya in Montjuïc.
“The fountain is beautiful, and unlike anything you have seen before. Being able to experience the beautiful show of water, light and music is magical," she said.
