Trip to Barcelona, Spain

Recently I travelled to Barcelona with my family. Barcelona, the beautiful capital city of Spain, had been one of my must visit places in the list. We travelled from London to Barcelona by flight and we had already booked an accommodation in advance.

Barcelona is packed with historical buildings, parks, museums, beaches and shopping centres. Like many others, we too used a hop on hop off bus for sight seeing.


Sagrada Familia is one of the top attractions of Barcelona. It is one of Antonio Gaudi's famous works in Barcelona.  The construction of this giant Basilica was started in 1882 and still it is not completed.  Since there was a long queue for the entry to the church we didn't spend our time to see inside.
 



                                                                           


La Rambla - One of the most popular places in Barcelona which is always crowded with tourists. It is also famous for Human statues,  markets, restaurants, cafes, pigeons, various shows and other entertainments. It is also a place for starting the bus tours for sight seeing.  
                                                                       


A Cathedral - It was built in 13th century.


                                                                           


We spent sometime in the beach sitting and enjoying the palm trees, activities around, and the azure waters.

















La Pedrera is another great work of Gaudi. After visiting the place we did a bit of shopping too there.

Another place we visited was one of the sea ports.  We also enjoyed the famous Spanish food Paelle and Tapas.
