Our full first day in Barcelona was spent doing the tourist must-haves. High up in the mountains, looking down on to the harbour...I wish we'd had time to ride in one of the cable cars. Park Güell, the amazing Gaudi designed park, again I wish we'd had more time to visit Gaudi's house. The amazing construction of La Sagrada Família, which my fixed lens didn't quite manage to capture the whole of. Strolling down La Rambla and exploring the Gothic Quarter.

Ahhh I seriously need to go back here, I saw only a small part of the architecture this city has to offer. Lovely photos, as always.

I have ADORED Barcelona.
A wonderful city, that my boyfriend know by heart (he comes from South of France, so it's really close : 2h by car).

I want to go back, and see what I couldn't see!
My favourite area is the Bario Gothic ;)

Besos Guapita !

If I can't be in Barcelona in person, your pictures are the next best thing. I especially love the first one and that you managed to capture a bird in flight.

How I miss Barcelona so! I am very awed by Sagrada Familia and spent a lot of time staring at its splendor.

Hannah said...

I love Barcelona so much, went there in the summer of 2009 and have a fair few similar pictures of all the Guadi artwork around Park Guell. Hope you're having a fantastic Christmas xx

Miss ED said...

Awesome pics so far! I love that you posted up Gaudi's work, it's interesting how it still retains a very unique and beautiful charm, isn't it? I hope the Sagrada Familia is finished within my lifetime, it would be awesome to see it.

Harriet said...

Beautiful photos - you've really captured the spirit of Barcelona, and this mix of the Guadi modernism and gorgeous gothic old parts

Cloud of Secrets said...

So atmospheric and haunting, capturing a truly fantasian city - not one's usual tourism photos! It delights me that someone like Gaudi had the financial and civic support to express his visions on such a grand scale.

WeShop said...

Wonderful pics, Paula. I went in one of those cable cars when I was there - was scared witless (not very good with heights!). xx

Barbara said...

what a wonderful city ..
It makes me feel like going there again :)
