It was my second visit in Barcelona. A city I like very much. From the airport, we took a bus to get to the city. Our hotel was not very far from the Rambla. What to do in Barcelona: browsing in La Boqueria , revisiting the Gothic Quarter, walking on Passeig de Graciato to see the great architecture , eating churros, admiring the Cathedrals, spending time inside the Sagrada, going to Barceloneta to enjoy the view of the water. We did not have time to go back to Parc Guell ( we had done it in 2009) or visiting museums. Often, we prefer to be walking , exploring as much as we can while we also take time to enjoy good food. It was 3 full days well spent. I will share a few photos taken during our time in Barcelona.
Gaudi’s work has greatly influenced the face of Barcelona architecture and you will see stunning examples of his work all around the city centre.
Casa Batllo. Gaudí renovated this block of flats to make it look like a sinewy, psychedelic deep-sea beast. Whatever you do, don’t let the queues put you off venturing inside this fantastic building.
Hospital de la Santa Creu i de Sant Pau. With its dainty pavilions, Modernista quirks, ceramic décor and gardens, this hospital works artistic as well as medical wonders.
La Sagrada Familia. Gaudí’s unfinished symphony, an extraordinary work of soaring religious devotion and unlimited imagination.
The Cathedral of Barcelona in the Gothic Quarter.
This was a quick tour of a very interesting city. I hope you enjoyed. Thanks always for reading. Hasta luego !
