Barcelona

A stroll in Barcelona on a sunny day

We decided to talk a walk in the city and go to popular tourist destinations. First we went to see Sagrada Familia is a large Roman Catholic church, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí. Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It was crowded but nevertheless interesting. Later we decided to walk in random directions and from time to time, we’d see something interesting.  Later we decided to visit Montjuïc Castle. Montjuïc Castle is an old military fortress, with roots dating back from 1640, currently serving as a Barcelona municipal facility, built on top of Montjuïc hill. From the top of the castle walls you have a clear panoramic view over the whole city.

 

A night outside the Museum

After coming back from hill, we went to see Museu Nacional d’Art which is the national museum of Catalan visual art. We only saw it from outside. It was a full moon night and moon looked amazing on top of Museum building. We spent sometime there and then we went to grab dinner. And that’s how we ended a long but good day.

 

A visit to Montaña de Montserrat

Today, we wanted to visit Montaña de Montserrat which is a multi-peaked mountain located near the city of Barcelona. It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat. We took train from Barcelona and went there. We spent the whole day there and following are some of the pictures

 

A walk at beach

You’re in Barcelona and you don’t go to beach, that’s not possible. So our third day in Barcelona was dedicated for beach. We took long walks on hot sunny beach and spent most of the time there

Later, we got back to our place and took the bus to airport and got into flight for our next destination.
