Barcelona Pictures

22 Dec

Some pictures from our recent trip to Barcelona:

Image 

We visited two churches in Barcelona. This was taken in the Cathedral in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona (not Gaudi’s Basilica of the Sagrada Familia) and shows the crypt of Santa Eulalia.

The rather corny name of the Magic Fountain is nevertheless a pretty spectacular synchronised performance of water, music and lights. It’s also free!

Above the sound and light display is a cascade of beautifully lit waterfalls leading up to the National Palace.

On our final day we crammed in a visit to the church of Santa Maria del Mar (on which the novel Cathedral of the Sea is based) along with a walk around the old city before chancing upon the Triumphal Arch and the Ciutadella Park, a green oasis in a busy city near to the port.

Of cause, the evenings weren’t for sightseeing!
