My trip to Barcelona:

On Thursday 19th of February to Tuesday 24th of February, I went on a break away to Barcelona.

I’ve studied web design before but I need to refresh my memory on how to make my photos copyrighted. Either by a proper watermark or in another way. (My reason for the few photos provided)

Photos:

Dunkin’ Coffee – One of the best ways to get your sight-seeing day started! They had an offer of twelve doughnuts for €10.50 that I just couldn’t resist! I was so happy to see Dunkin’ again. We used to have a few in Ireland – Dublin before but unfortunately they got shut down early 2000 to what I can remember due to lack of sales. Get yourself a beverage and maybe a doughnut and you’ll be good to go!

Park Güell is definitely a recommendation I would give if you are travelling to Barcelona. I should warn you in advance that it was a bit of a trek up to it. The hill leading up to it is very steep. But there are mini escalators along the way to help you out if you are struggling. The park has stunning views over the entire city and of the ocean. Please see link provided in English for entry fee information, how to get to the park, maps and many more. Link: http://www.parkguell.cat/en/

Castell de Montjuïc (Castillo de Montjuïc/Castle Montjuïc) is definitely a place I’d recommend. With the views of the harbour and the garden grounds around the castle, it is one not to be missed! Please see link for information in English about the castle and also regarding entry fees. Link:

La Sagrada Familia by Gaudi. It is a shame about the cranes and the works that are currently being done to the church but according to Wikipedia:

“Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project’s greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completion date of 2026, the centenary of Gaudí’s death.“

It will hopefully be completed by 2026! The reason behind it not being finished is:

“Gaudí devoted his last years to the project, and at the time of his death at age 73 in 1926 less than a quarter of the project was complete.”

Please see link for information regarding entry fees, history about the church and Gaudi himself and many more. Link:
