A snapshot of Barcelona

Ah Barcelona, I miss you.

Sand, sea and bright city lights, the tapas is incredible and there’s a cool blend of beach and cosmopolitan life which must be why so many people keep returning to this fab city. Here’s a snapshot of our visit:

 

Graffiti in the one of the old town districts; Raval, El Born, Barri Gotic, in Barcelona.
Graffiti is notorious in Barcelona and we stumbled upon these realistic squirrels after wandering down a narrow backroad in one of the old town districts of Raval, El Born and Barri Gotic in Barcelona.
Walking to Park Guell in Barcelona

Sun, sea, sand and margaritas is the appropriate mix when in Barcelona.

Gaudi's masterpiece, the Sagrada Família
You can’t help but look up in awe at Antoni Gaudi’s masterpiece; The Sagrada Família. Due to be completed in 2026, this is one of Barcelona’s most impressive architectural sights.

Tapas and sangria by the sea, Barcelona
Where did we go straight after landing in Barcelona I hear you ask? To he beach front spot of Tapa Tapa for tapas and sangria of course.
Piazza in Barcelona
One of my favourite things to do in Barcelona was wander through the streets and people watch, which this piazza provided plenty of.
Park Guell views
Wandering around Park Guell felt like we were in a completely different city. Lush, green and incredible views of Barcelona.
Barcelona beach and sea
As if Barcelona couldn’t get any better, there’s also a cracking beach to chill out on after a hard day of munching on tapas and knocking back sangria.
Barcelona backstreets
Barcelona backstreets, graffiti and motorbikes.
Barcelona panoramic views
We stumbled upon a little dirt path near Park Guell, which we scrambled up, and it eventually led us to this peak which overlooked Barcelona with an incredible panoramic view of the beautiful city. In the words of Miley Cyrus, it was defo worth the climb…

Antoni Gaudi's Casa Batllo
Perhaps one of my favourite Gaudi buildings in Barcelona, Casa Batllo. Colourful tiles and funky shapes, what a beaut.

Churros and chocolate at Granja M. Viader
Couldn’t help but indulge at Granja M. Viader with fresh churros and dipping chocolate as hot and thick as they come.

Looking like a scene straight out of Indiana Jones, Park Guell is hitting all of the architecture points.
