All the colors of Barcelona.

Barcelona is fascinating, full of wonderful and exciting details.  Everywhere artists, such as Antoni Gaudi, have left their mark like no other. It may come as no surprise that Gaudi’s architecture is what makes Barcelona so very unique. Frederik and I both were astonished by all the inventive cultural pieces. The Sagrada Familia will only be ready in 2026, but already is so very beautiful. We especially loved strolling through Parc Guell (which almost didn’t happen since we weren’t aware we had to buy our entrance tickets in advance!). The masterpiece at Parc Guell is the courtyard with the benches encrusted with ceramic shards of all colors. Just sitting there and enjoying the view lets loose your imagination. Hotel-wise, I can definitely recommend the W Hotel. Its location (right at the beach) gives you a real vacation vibe. As for lunch and dinner, I really have to thank you – my lovely readers. A few weeks before leaving to Barcelona I’ve asked you some tips, and you gave a whole bunch of them. We tried out Bestial (a lovely restaurant by the beach), Arola (a rooftop restaurant with direct view on the Sagrada Familia), La Xampaneria (a local tapas bar) and Alaire (a rooftop restaurant by the beach). I can recommend them all, but we especially had a great time at La Xampaneria (what wasn’t that surprising since they offer great cava at €1,3 per glass haha).
So.. Do I think Barcelona is worth the trip? YES!!
