You should also search for older threads answering your question. The wiki is written by locals and other people living here, and it has proved really useful for lots of visitors. It covers stuff like: where can I watch my favorite sports game? what metro ticket should I buy? what language do I need to speak? what's a good site for apartment hunting? what's a good restaurant in Eixample? what are some cool 'unknown' places to visit? If it looks like you haven't checked the wiki or done a search (basically if it looks like you haven't made much of an effort to find the info for yourself, including on Google), your question might get removed. Seriously, please read the wiki. The city is called Barcelona, or BCN or Barna for short. Barça is the football club. Barca means boat. That's a free first lesson on how to sound more like a local.
