Barcelona 1

To see This one was my third attempt to a good visit to Barcelona.

Failed, once more, by a change of plan that made me rush to the Costa Brava.

So, Barcelona keeps being one of the next objectives.

​As sooner as possible!​

​Triumphal Arch


The triumphal arch was built as the main entrance to the 1888 World Fair in Barcelona. It is 30 meters high and only serves decorative objetifs.

After the fair it was moved to the actual location.

Pueblo Español


Sagrada Familia church


Under construction for almost 159 years, what is considered Gudi’s masterpiece stands out clearly in the noblest area of the city.
With plans to complete the structure on the centenary of the architect’s death, in 2026, the expensive ticket paid by the millions of visitors is financing the work.

Guell park


Batiló house




Plaza Espanya


Montjuic palace


​Shopping Malls

If you tell Fernanda I wrote this I’m a dead man. I’ve been in Barcelona more than 30 years ago, in a rush to proceed to France and Germany.

I got an excellent idea of the town, but, for one reason or another, I never went back – even when we went to Andorra, and Salou, visiting Montserrat, we skipped Barcelona.

Just waiting

Last year I decided It was time, and convinced Fernanda to spend a week in the beach (near Barcelona…), after returning from Croatia.​

It just happened that we made some Spanish friends in Croatia, and, after 2 days in Gava (as previously booked) we decided to move to Roses to meet them.

​That gave me only 3 hours to visit the city. Now the secret: I spent 5 of those 3 hours… standing and waiting at the door of El Corte Inglês!
