Catalunya Square - Barcelona - Day 1
During the day in Barcelona, Catalunya Square is filled with vendors and families enjoying the beautiful weather. The pidgeons are very tame and let the children pick them up and carry them around.
The fountain in Catalunya Square is a beautiful and restful place to take a nap during siesta. In the evening Barcelona comes to life - Catalunya Square becomes a gathering point for the locals and their families!
La Rambla, the Pedestrian Street, is filled with flower shops, vendors and of course Street Preformers. This funny man only stopped moving to have his picture made when you threw a Euro in his Paint Bucket!
Barcelona is filled with interesting architecture using organic design.
This building, on the right is designed by Gaudi and is called The Quarry.
This is Draco, also designed by Gaudi - he resides in Gaudi Park. He is one of the wonderful symbols of Barcelona!
Barcelona - Day 2
Virginia and Alison's bright smiles reflected the excitement of the group to see the sights of Barcelona before we embarked on our cruise.
Antonio was our guide for Barcelona.
Antonio brought us to La Sagrada Familia, The Holy Family Temple, designed by Gaudi. It has been under construction since 1883 and will not be complete for another 30 years. Each side of the church represents a part of Christ's life.
