Barcelona Sights

It has been a long road back to recovery for me the blog this week. What say we end the week with a virtual trip to Barcelona?

Like most Spanish cities, Barcelona is full of history, tradition and, of course,  architecture that doesn’t disappoint.

2 Those clever Catalans. They banned bull fighting, then converted the arena into a grand shopping center with an array of restaurants and views up top…

3 …views such as the Plaza de España

4 It’s always fun to see things studied in design school with your own two eyes. Like the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Pavillion. The inspiration for the iconic Barcelona Chair.

5 I also got my fill of Gaudi goodness with, among many things, a trip to the Park Güell.

  1. My only exposure to Barcelona was from “Vicky Christina Barcelona” and this was a way more realistic “experience” for me! I can’t wait to see more pictures (hopefully you have more :) The architecture is just beautiful.

  2. Barcelona is such an amazing city! I’ve only been able to visit once for a quick weekend jolly, but I have such fond memories of that weekend – particularly one long lunch in a courtyard with several pitchers of sangria and that tomato bread dish (the name escapes me). Bliss!

  3. I have heard so many lovely things about Barcelona and seeing these photos makes me wish I learned Spanish so that I could take a trip there! Everything seems so gorgeous and the lifestyle seems very familiar to other European cities that i love!

  4. Barcelona es para mi una de las ciudades mas bellas de España y de toda Europa y concuerdo contigo que tiene todo historia, arquitectura y bellas planyas .Ademas de ser una ciudad muy entretenida

  5. I do want to get to Barcelona in this lifetime; It’s definitely on my travel wish list. Your photos are making the destination all the more desirable. It seems I’m also having a long road to recovery with blogging. Let’s agree to cut ourselves some slack and go with the flow. [smile] Happy 2013, Santa!
