Places To Visit in Barcelona

Places To Visit in Barcelona

So, I am sad to say that this is my final post about Barcelona. It is fair to say that I left my heart in Barcelona

There are so many beautiful places to see in Barcelona. I didn't quite get around to seeing them all, but here are some of the gorgeous places I did get to see

First off, I went to this sublime Gaudi creation Sagrada Familia

This building is probably one of the most iconic buildings in Barcelona

It is still being built, but the photos definitely do not do it justice. This is a must see if you are ever in Barcelona. I was simply awe struck by it's beauty

Can Framis Museum

Next up, we wandered into this contemporary art museum

Museu Can Framis, established in 2009, has an education program that offers activities designed for pre-school to secondary school, as well as for people with special educational needs. I love this concept. Art needs to be available to everyone who wants it and it can be very therapeutic

So many beautiful pieces by amazingly talented artists

But the most breathtaking were these pieces by Yago Hortal

This piece actually took my breath away. I was stood looking at it for ages just amazed by all the colours and textures of this piece. When I hit the "Big Time" I am going to have one of his creations in my house

Arc De Triomf

We also knew that we couldn't come to Barcelona without checking out the Arc De Triomf. And what a beauty it is

Opposite the Arc De Triomf is this stunning Parc de la Ciutadella

Inside the park is this Castles Dels Tres Daateins which translates to Castle of the Three Dragons

Lastly, I took a stroll into the Gothic Quarter to check out the Cathedral

It was so beautifully and lovingly created. The antique gold contrasted with the colourful, bright stained glass windows really made me speechless - for once

These places in Barcelona really helped steal my heart! I will be back and when I do, I'll be sure to take you all along for the ride
