Ola Barcelona! Here in Barcelona for a couple of days for vacation. Barcelona, a city known for it’s parties and food. I definitely ate a lot of food, but party not as much since I was visiting Barcelona alone. Here’s a summary of the things I’ve done in Barcelona!
This is the Magic Fountain of Montjuic. Really easy to get to, as you just need to get off at the Placa Espanya (Green Line 3, or Red Line 1). Around 9PM there is a free fountain show here, and I do recommend to come by and see it. It’s quite amazing and impressive. Do some research before going though as I believe it’s not always on every night. Here’s a picture around the Magic Fountain:
A little bit of history about Spain. Antoni Gaudi is a widely respected Spanish architect, with a lot of famous works around Barcelona. One of the must visit Gaudi creations is Park Guell. Like most attractions in Barcelona, you can easily get here via metro. Definitely a must visit here, as this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Plus you get a great view of the city here.
La Sagrada Familia
Another famous creatoin of Gaudi. And this, was the highlight of my trip in Barcelona. What is simply amazing about this church is that it is still under construction! It supposedly will take a total of 150 years. As such we will probably never be able to see it’s entirety. I was able to go in, and then took an elevator all the way to the top!
TIP – Do buy the tickets to the La Sagrada Familia ahead of time, as the line up can be quite long if you buy it on the spot.
That’s it for part 1!
