The capital and most populous city of Catalonia, and the second largest city in Spain, with a population of 1,6 mill, is Barcelona.
Este Dimarts I have to tell that me falta la practica hablar Castellano (as my old teacher learned us in the Spanish lesson at collage), but that is no argument not to present some of the facts from this fantastic city.
Barcelona performed by Freddie Mercury together with Montserrat Cabelle (You Tube video) is one of my favorite duets, and if you do not like my photos, please listen to the music.Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia is probably today the most known ikon of Barcelona, and at the east entrance the fantastic details can be studied.The Gothic Cathedral is another cultural place to visit and the Thursday dance at the square in front of the cathedral, can absolute compare with the student´s Flamenco at Plaza Reial in the same Barri Gotic area.Another square well worth a visit is Plaza Catalunyaat the top of La RamblaAs seen at the photo many buildings in Barcelona seems strange (for Odd Shot Mondays?) for people not known with Art Nouveau or Jugend art. Antoni Gaudi and his buildings and parks in Barcelona, are a necessity when visiting the city. In addition to Sagrada Familia La Perdera and Park Guel are Gaudi´s best known landmarks.La Perdera above and Park Guell below. The Picasso Museum at Montcada 15-23 is of course a must and the same is a visit to 4 Gats at Carrer Montsio 3.No more to tell today, but call tour travel agency and order a weekend to Barcelona.
