I’m back from my trip to Barcelona, a holiday with one of my best friends that was full of beautiful sights and a lot of sunshine. Here are a few highlights from our time away.
A view across the city from Park Güell, a major work by the much beloved Gaudí.
Some more examples of the famous mosaic design style present throughout Park Güell.
Some of the area’s more natural sights.
Some exterior shots of the iconic La Sagrada Familia, Gaudí’s true passion project that’s so vast it remains under construction to this day, despite being one of the city’s most popular attractions.
A glimpse at La Sagrada Familia’s beautiful interior.
More of the city’s renowned architecture, found in and around the Gothic Quarter, including Barcelona Cathedral, pictured in the middle.
The very charming Parc de la Ciutadella.
A few random finds I particularly liked: the Arc de Triomf; a fountain that was just outside our hotel in the heart of the city; and a statue of a mammoth, because why the heck not?
The Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor, which sits on top of Tibidabo Mountain right by a retro-style amusement park.
A few shots of the church’s interior.
A couple of different perspectives from high above the city; one taken from Park Güell and one from the top of Sagrat Cor.
