Barcelona – Day 2

Date: Tue 11th June
Temperature: Warm
Mood: Cheerful
Highlight: Gaudi Again!

We woke from a restful sleep to the sounds of Barcelona early morning peak hour traffic. After a pleasant breakfast that included cereal (a nice change), our host assisted us by purchasing online tickets for Gaudi’s “Sagrada Familia”. His unfinished Cathedral. This simple exercise probably saved us over an hour standing in a queue to get in!

3 Hrs after entering the Cathedral we thought we had better get moving to take in more sights of Barca. Oh, and what did we think of Gaudi’s Cathedra? Both now being experts on Cathedrals with particular emphasis on the Gothic style, you would think we’d surely have an opinion! Well words cannot even come close to describing this masterpiece. You simply have to experience it to believe it! So hopefully some of the photos can speak for it instead. This Cathedral alone is worth the trip to Barca!

Time for some serious sight seeing, so on to the popular tourist hop on, hop off bus. Another 3 Hrs later covering some wonderful sights that Barcelona has to offer in glorious sunshine, we thought we had better grab some lunch (5pm) and head over to another of Gaudi’s works “Casa Batlló”. Another awe inspiring building that simply leaves you spell bound on Gaudi’s brilliance.

After dinner we headed back out in a wonderful barmy evening to see Gaudi’s works under lights and to take a few more photos!

Tomorrow we will finally say goodbye to Spain. We have thoroughly enjoyed everything that Spain has had to offer. Tomorrow is Italy. Lets see what Italy can offer!

    Great to have some news from Barcelonna, I thought, you were thinking you were on holidays. HELLO!!!!, we want some news, some photos. Stephen you do have a great eye for details and you Jenny great comments, you should write for ‘Travel by Design” !!!!!!
    We are due for a trip to Barcelonna because the last one was about 22 years ago and what we saw of the Cathedral was only the towers nothing was build behind it. Once again, we are jealous. Enjoy your time, you deserve it. Love Thierry
