Barcelona, Spain

A huge, vibrant city filled with beautiful architecture, enormous Italian Cypress tres,  gorgeous water fountains, flower shops, gelato on every corner and ‘ham boutiques’; just wondering around the city was an event in itself. 

Barcelona was the home of the artista Antonio Gaudi so it is in Barcelona that you will find so many of his works.  Probably the most famous is the Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família (church of the holy family).  The construction of this incredible gothic style church started in 1883,  still under constuction the completion of the  project depends solely on donations.  Gaudi’s response when asked about the lengthy construction time...”My client has all the time in the world and is not in a hurry”.
 
Personally, after seeing the church I couldn’t help but ask if the term ‘gaudy’ came from Gaudi’s design of this church....research says ‘no’ but I still have my doubts. 

The beaches along the Barcelona coast line were gorgeous with the beautiful Mediterranean waters meeting the white sand.  And yes, European sunbathing was in full swing.  I refuse to answer any other questions on that topic...remember what happens in Spain, stays in Spain. 
 
Magic Fountain in Montjuic Park
The Magic Fountain is part of a beautiful of the collection of waterfalls and ponds on Avinguda Maria Cristina, which stretches from the Palau Nacional to Plaça Espanya in Montjuïc. This is a spectacular fountain which is very popular because of its water arrangements, sound and lighting. 2,600 litres of water are pumped through this great fountain per second in three concentric pools which have a water recirculation system.

Placa del Catalunya
La Rambla, ‘the’ most popular people watching location in Barcelona and you can find great sangría and paella there too.  Wondering down one of the alleyways you will run into the market.  Yet another amazing collection of fresh vegtables and fruit with a plethora of colors running down both sides of the aisle ways.

 Suggestions for those of you planning a trip to Espana….
1)  Don’t take a lot of clothes buy them there, they have beautiful fashions for all budgets
2)  Try the wine, paella and the olives; you won’t regret it.  The seafood is awesome too.
3)  Take an extra suitcase for all the things you will want to bring back. 
4)  Plan on buying more than one pair of beautiful shoes.  Spain specializes in everything
     piel (leather). 
4)  If you visit the Costa del Sol área, take the day trip to Tangier. 
5)  Don’t speak Spanish?  Don’t worry, just smile and use your hands to help explain what
    you need.
