“My husband and I recently took a trip to Europe which started in Barcelona, Spain and ended in Lisbon, Portugal. I will share with you a weekly accounting go the places we loved the most. This week’s will be Barcelona. There are a couple of things that stand out in my mind when I think of Barcelona. A trip to Barcelona would not be complete without a trip to Antoni Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece of La Sagrada Familia Cathedral. They require tickets ahead of time. Don’t just be content to see the outside of Sagrada Familia, get tickets to the inside and the towers also online before you go. Gaudi also designed Park Guell. It is composed of gardens and fascinating architecture filled with pavilions and colorful mosaics. Both of these are World Heritage Sites. The main street or promenade for a stroll and shopping is called Las Ramblas. We stayed at this fabulous hotel called The Palace near all the action. One evening we went to a buffet dinner and Flamenco Show. The dinner was terrible but you can just go for the show. It’s in an adjoining small show room and was terrific. We used Barcelona Day Tours. They were great!

Have you been to Barcelona?”
