Sagrada familia

Euro Tour :: Spain, Part III (Barcelona Edition)

Following my stay in Split, I caught a flight to Barcelona. Very interesting place, and unlike the other parts of Spain in look, feel, attitude. The weather was not great, so limited my access somewhat, but found a few windows to see the Cathedral, Montjuic Park with great panoramic city and Mediterranean views, and the Sagrada Familia (which I'll post separately). Enjoy!

"La Seu" or the Catedral de la Santa Creu.

Catedral Rooftop #1. I got up here late afternoon, and in spite of the wind and chill,
hung out till the sun went down. So worth it.

Euro Tour :: Barcelona :: Sagrada Familia

Visited Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece twice during my stop in Barcelona. First day was rainy and overcast and there STILL was an insane line. I wised up and realized I could and needed to buy a ticket online to beat the crush of people. The photography gods were smiling as the day of my return was sunny and clear.
