Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and has many things to visit in the city, the best in our opinion, would stay 3 a 4 days to know the city better.
But if you have only one day, I suggest doing this script, in the order that is, almost everything you can do on foot, only to go to Park Guell which is further away would be good to go by bus or subway, but with only one day it may be better to buy a Barcelona City Pass which includes admission to Holy Family, Guel park, Airport Shuttle, tourist bus Hop on Hop off and + 20% off in other city attractions, eg house Milan, Casa Batllo, Camp Nou and more, besides avoiding the giant queues to buy tickets to the Sagrada Familia.
Parque Ciutadella and Arc de Triomphe for us the most beautiful park, its green areas, a lake with boats for sightseeing, a wonderful source of the most beautiful in Europe and even a sculpture of a mammoth. Within the park is the Barcelona Zoo.
El Born, an old market town that in its reform and expansion to build a parking, found Roman ruins of ancient time, that the city then made this discovery, a museum. The space was opened recently and while not pay anything to enter, only if you want to tour, are 6,60 EUR per person.
Basilica Santa Maria de Mar for us one of the most beautiful churches in the world to be all stone with huge columns and still has a beautiful view from the tower. Admission is free for those who go in the morning, because of late entry is paid and to climb the tower also pays.
Barcelona's cathedral It is one of the most beautiful cathedrals of Europe and its surroundings (Roman Torres, King Square, Chapel of St. Agatha, Walls of the Plaza de Ramon Berenguer el Gran) which are Roman walls, the ancient aqueducts and narrow streets that lead you to the medieval time.

La Boqueria market, is the central market of Barcelona excellent to walk around and buy some drinks and food, there beyond the market traders selling fish, meats, fruits, spices and other things has excellent restaurants, We recommend Central Bar which is right as you enter the market, and order a Seafood parrilada coming prawns, squid, seafood, clams, lobster and other sea things, costs 27 euros and gives two people. Enjoy lunch to eat something in the market.

At night we suggest going to some good bars and restaurants of Ramblas, but stretch in the evening, go to one of the nightclubs: Opium Mar, Pacha, Shoko, Apolo, Razzmatazz or Sutton, depending on the day and time of year is best to go for one or the other, eg Thursday is good to Sutton and weekend and Wednesday Opium Mar, just be careful how you will dress, because these houses are half fresh, only let in people dressed, eg for men is mandatory shirt and shoe.
Some bars indicate is Black sheep, Champanheria, Black cat and 100 Montaditos. Barcelona also has the Pub Crawl
