Barcelona Day 4 – Art and Romance

May 3, 2013


On our last day we strolled around the nearby neighbourhoods to our apartment, in between very tall buildings so close together I wondered how they managed to build them so big!


Through quite alleyways and around corners we discovered secrets of Barcelona like this old building in the middle of it all.

After having lunch at our favourite pinxto bar we sat outside this church soaking up sun rays and people watching.


On our slow walk back to our apartment, I marvelled at the beautiful, romantic architecture of some of the buildings.

I have no explanation!


Even the coach station was impressive!

Quite an impressive doorknob don’t you think!?

I’m sure there is so much more to discover about this lovely city and I wouldn’t say no to spending an extended time here. I definitely recommend a visit.

    I loved Barcelona when I went there 2 years ago. I had such a lovely time, and so many beautiful things to see!
