As far as I know and according to their official site, only three games take place that month at the Camp Nou: Barça-Deportivo de la Coruña (10/03/13), Barça-Milan (12/03/2013) and Barça-Rayo Vallecano (17/03/2013). We are talking 20-80€ for the Rayo Vallecano, but 80€-160€ to see the Milan (that's expected to be a very good game, in case it wasn't obvious); there aren't many seats left, so if that's when you are going, buy the tickets now before it's too late!

About the city itself, well, obviously the two most visited landmarks are the Camp Nou (AKA the Catalan Mecca) and the Sagrada Familia (make sure to get inside, by the way, it's definitely worth the standing line); aside from that, you want to visit the "Barri Gotic" (old city center, beware the pickpockets), las Ramblas (beware the pickpockets there too) and "Passeig de Gràcia" (the most recognizable XIXth century Barcelona), anything else signed by Gaudi (at the very least you've got the "Parc Güell" left, that isn't negotiable). Then it depends on how much time you've got and the kind of things that you want to see, but the Port is nice and there's plenty of thing to do there; so is the Tibidabo (one of the hills that surround BCN), which among other things holds a 112 year old amusement park; Montjuic (with, among other things, the "Palau Nacional", AKA Catalan National Art Museum).

And in case you didn't know, most people only grudgingly speak Spanish in Barcelona, they rather speak Catalan here. On the other hand, Andalucian accent is pretty rough too, so if you were planning to improve your Spanish, tough luck :)

Where to Andalucía, by the way? Córdoba, Sevilla, Granada...?

Oops, forgot to mention that this is probably late March - early April.  The plan was to see Barca v Mallorca, which I gather is not a particularly 'hot' match.  When should I buy those tickets?  Where should I sit in Camp Nou?  Is there any concern that Barca fields a team of B players, so that I don't actually get to see Messi/Iniesta/etc.?

My Spanish is poor.  My wife's is much better, but mostly Latin American.  I'm going to get ready to hear a lot of "Ethh-pañol" :-)

Finally, the plan is to visit Sevilla and/or Granada.  No set plan -- any recommendations?  (Other than delicious sangria)

mallorca are in the relegation zone, so there is a decent chance that you will see more of a B team. but it does depend somewhat on how close the madrid teams are at that point and and whether or not the win is vital for winning the league. they have a chance at setting the record for wins and points in la liga too so you can hope they start the regular squad to achieve that.

Just had a look at the schedule, thats pretty close to the end of the season, 4 games left.
They are already 11 points ahead, so if things keep going as they are, they will have won the title by then.

No idea on Barca philosophy but there is potential they cold start resting players for champions league semis and later (amd they will probablybein the final of the spanish cp as well?)

As to getting a ticket, cant amswer that, but if it was England you probably would have no chance at a big london club (or man U or liverpool) but no ideaon spanish attendances

I can't really give you any piece of advice about which seat you should get, since I've never been to a game myself (I'm not really into football); however, one third of the tickets have already been sold for the Barça-Mallorca, so I wouldn't wait much longer to get them either.

About Sevilla and Granada, if you can only go to one of them, go to Sevilla, there are more things to do there; however, you'll be losing on the Alhambra... I can't really go into much detail about them, since I've seldom been there.

I would imagine that third would be season ticket holders though?

I'd be surprised if they were selling general public tickets this early! That would imply they have trouble selling out stadium normally

From my very limited interaction with Spaniards, my suggestion if you want to make friends is to bring peanut butter and bread with you and offer to make sandwiches for people you meet. Every Spaniard I've ever met goes crazy over peanut butter. (n = 3)

Barca don't really believe in rotation all that much.  At least not for Messi - who in addition to being the best player in the world also appears to be pretty indestructible.

You might miss out on Xavi, or one or two others, but you'll get a good show.

I would just love to eat and eat and eat! And there is such cool music and culture there! I have had many japanese freinds (& a sister), but never been able to visit.  I suppose the grass is always greener, but I think you're lucky....

Japan's a nice country - at least, what I saw of it over two weeks in the holidays was nice - but given how hard it was to communicate I can only imagine what it's like for someone who doesn't know any of the language.
