Barcelona – January 2017 (Day 4 & 5)

15.01.17

Today, I went to La Sagrada Familia & Tibidabo. Was possibly one of the best days ever.

To mention, I shall provide the relevant links below for you 🙂

Across from La Sagrada Familia, there is a lake where I decided to go to get a different view of the cathedral. Ended up getting the reflection of the cathedral in the lake.

There was also four placed decorations around the altar with Jesus, representating the four apostles. From left to right – Matthew, Mark, Luke & John

You can also see Gaudi’s resting place (Crypt) where he was buried within the cathedral for free.

For a little keepsake/memory to bring home with you, you can buy a La Sagrada Familia coin from a machine within the cathedral. It costs €3.

The Outside:

It is all incredible to see the amount of detail that went & goes into keeping the cathedral in shape.

Tibidabo

The greatest end to the day! Depending where you stay, it does take about half an hour to an hour to get there but believe me, it is worth every second of your time.

The view as you go up the cable car to the mountain where you then get the bus to the very peak of it.

My last day! This was spent packing my bag & heading straight to the airport as the flight was pretty early. Back home now but I have booked a weekend trip to Liverpool in May & will be going here & there at home so stay tuned for more 🙂
