Back from Barca! What an amazing trip - phenomenal hotels, ridiculous weather, potentially illegal quantities of Estrella Damm, beautiful sights and more squid than I ever thought I'd consume. Here's Part 1 of the photo evidence. Shops and hotels to follow! (Above: Columbus Monument)
Along the Passeig de Colom
Gaudi's famous and forever unfinished Sagrada Familia
Some of the selections at Bar Morrysoom, a fun little divey tapas joint into which we stumbled
The old customs house
A "tattooed" lady outside parliament
The Catalan Parliment
A greenhouse in the Parc de la Ciutadella
The pharmacies are ridiculously beautiful - and all completely art nouveau
London Bar, one of Hemingway's old haunts
Like a Corinthian column, but a tree! (Probably a wildly famous building)
A key feature to the cloisters? Animals! Swans galore (often violent lil buggers) at Barcelona Cathedral. (Another one had chickens).
Mucho muerte: skulls + crossbones were all over everything. This, along with loads of amazing crests are carved into the floor of the Barcelona Cathedral's cloisters.
