I had been craving to visit Spain for such a long time. Finally, this Summer I was lucky enough to tuck into the beauty of Barcelona. Who doesn’t love Barcelona? The capital of Catalonia offers magnificent art and architecture, tapas and sangria feast, nice and bubbly Catalans, Zara at Spanish prices(eh?) and lots of Sunshines!
I wandered in the downtown and I couldn’t help myself to take a snap of this beautiful balcony. They all looked lovely! For accommodation, I stayed with my family in this amazing penthouse at Eixample. I couldn’t recommend enough this superb apartment, Arago312- fully equipped and got an awesome panoramic view from the veranda. The friendly staff at the reception and located at the heart of Barcelona. The metro station was a walking distance from the apartment.
Barcelona and Gaudi are inseparable. If we’re talking about Barcelona, we won’t forget to mention Gaudi’s masterpieces everywhere in this lovely city. Atonio Gaudi, a Catalan architect who his great works was strongly influenced by nature and organic form. His works are noticeable- you will easily spot those unusual and remarkable buildings at the streets of Barcelona. Here are some extraordinary Gaudi’s talents that you simply can’t miss:
