15 Jul, 2017 in Barcelona

Barcelona is an exciting vibrant city, with lots of tourist attractions, but perhaps the most famous of those is the La Sagrada Familia, which has been under renovations for ages.

20 Feb, 2017 in Barcelona

While visiting Barcelona I met with a local and we roamed around in Barcelona for a whole day on foot. I was taken to all sorts of places that are a bit off the beaten tourist track, but are very much part of Barcelona.  Agbar Tower, for example, is a tower Barcelonians love to hate, […]

Gothic quarter Barcelona Spain-022

On my recent visit to Barcelona, I stayed near the Gothic Quarter, the old city center, with buildings and architecture dating back hundreds of years. It’s filled with funky stores, comfy little cafes and restaurants, and shopping options.

Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Barcelona Spain (17)

My favorite moment in my last visit to Barcelona was up on the Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Sagrat Cor) with panoramic views of gorgeous Barcelona from high up in the mountains. A short bus ride from Barcelona through the winding roads up to the tallest mountain of the area, a climb through […]
