#TBT | Spain - Barcelona

This week's #ThrowBackTravel is Barcelona! My family and I took a two week long trip to Spain back in May 2010. We spent one week in Barcelona and then galavanted around Spain for another week. This post is brief throw back to our lovely week in Barcelona! 

The highlights of Day 1 included La Sagrada FamiliaCasa MilàCasa BatllóTelefèric de MontjuïcOutside Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, and Magic Fountain of Montjuïc. We were very ambitious - or at least I was - and we saw a lot! Being at the Magic Fountain at sunset to watch the water fountain show was beyond incredible! 

We took it easy on Day 2 and started the day off at Port Vell and walked by the marina. We also stumbled upon a lovely parade in Port Vell. In addition we went to the Barcelona Cathedral and climbed the tower to get a breathtaking view of Barcelona.

Day 3 highlights included Park GüellPalau Reial de PedralbesMercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria and La Rambla. Our hotel was walking distance from La Rambla therefore we were there all the time! My favorite part was going to the Boqueria and getting fresh juice from the market! 

On the last day we hit up Museu PicassoPalau de la Música CatalanaParc de la Ciutadella, and finished off with paella dinner on a lovely restaurant on La Rambla. No pictures were allows in the Palau de la Música Catalana but I had to sneak some shots of the beautiful ceiling! I highly recommend a visit if you are going to Barcelona!

The month of October will be dedicated to Spain and I will be sharing all about my trip to this beautiful country! Tune in next week for Sevilla & Cordoba! Happy Thursday!
