Barcelona Spain

The city of Barcelona is the principal city of the ancient kingdom of Catalonia, and is now a thriving city of almost three million people.
There seems to be no end of things to see here with more than 70 museums, 3 universities and 16 parks. Iberians, and later Romans, founded the city around the time of Christ and it has spawned an important intellectual and artistic community.

It's difficult to overstate the incredible architecture, that seems to be around every corner.

We got started early, walking up Las Ramblas.

The Barcelona City Tour bus stops at over a dozen places throughout the city. For ~ $16 you can get a ticket for the whole day, and every 10 minutes a bus comes by to take you on to the next stop.

Even the street lights look cool!

Not as many surveillance cameras as England, but they're there.

La Sagrada Familia Cathedral is incredible. Construction began in 1882....and it's still not done! Antoni Gaudi was appointed project director in 1883, and worked on it until he died in 1926.

Eight of the twelve bell towers have already been built and are dedicated to the Apostles. Their height exceeds 300 feet.
