I'd say £100 on average per day is prudent. Having said that, if you're going to 5* hotels, it's not exactly going to be a cheap holiday.

If you're not going for the tourist hotspots in Spain e.g. Mallorca, Barcelona, Madrid, etc., then it would be significantly cheaper.
Hey there! Budgeting for a day in Barcelona really depends on your travel style. Here's a breakdown based on what I've learned from my own trip:
Budget Traveler (50-75 euros/day)
Mid-Range Traveler (75-150 euros/day)
Luxury Traveler (150+ euros/day)

Barcelona Card. This city pass gives you free admission to many attractions, discounts on others, and unlimited public transportation. If you plan on doing a lot of sightseeing, it can be a good deal. But do the math first to see if it makes sense for you.
Free Activities. There are plenty of free things to do in Barcelona, like wandering La Rambla, exploring the Gothic Quarter, or relaxing on Barceloneta Beach.
Beware of Tourist Traps. Barcelona has its fair share of tourist traps, especially around La Rambla. Do some research beforehand to avoid overpriced meals or tacky souvenirs.

tysmm I'll make sure to keep this in mind! 🙂
I recently visited Barcelona this month for my business trip with my little suitcase. My work was simple and I closed it very fast. So, I had two free days. I spent £180 for entertainment: excursion, bars, history places, etc.
