It’s a bittersweet moment as I write the last part of this 3 part series from our Spain trip this past fall! We had so much fun in Spain and would love to return one day to explore (especially!) the southern part of this beautiful country.
From what we heard after talking to local Spaniards, you’re either LOVE Madrid or LOVE Barcelona…and we were definitely on the Barcelona side. Barcelona was everything we hoped it would be and more. It had delicious food, gorgeous architecture, lots of things to see, had a gorgeous beach front, and happy people! We spent 6 nights in Barcelona and still felt like we could have stayed longer. The city was filled with lots of young people. They loved riding on their motor bikes, brunching mid day, and sunbathing on the beach – my kinda people! When it came to architecture, it was at every turn. Barcelona is especially proud of it’s architect, Antoni Gaudi. There’s several places that he designed throughout the city but we chose to see Casa Batllo (where he used to live), Basilica of the Sagrada Familia (his masterpiece that is STILL under construction), and Park Guell (a gorgeous park with stunning views of the city). All of the highlights from our trip are listed below, but my absolute favorites had to be seeing inside the Sagrada Familia, exploring the Gothic Quarter at night, and attending a “football” game at Camp Nou.
Have you been to Spain? What were YOUR favorite things to do? Cities we should visit next time? Hasta la proxima, Spain! XOXO
