BARCELONA ...


Dear readers, this week, B is for Barcelona, Spain (seen from hotel, above) ...    

According to the recent annual Cities Survey from TripAdvisor, which collates the opinions of more than 54,000 travellers to the top 37 urban tourist destinations around the world, Barcelona came #3 in the 'overall experience' category. What's your favorite (vacation) destination?
                                         
                            So much to see here, both ancient and modern. 
                            One moment, you’re walking in Picasso’s footsteps
                            through medieval streets:




                                  Not forgetting the famous La Rambla


                 And then you’re confronted with such modernist wonders as these:

                                                        La Sagrada


                                                 
                                                and these buildings:



And, finally, thank you to all our dear readers who visited, commented or are new followers.

Enjoy!

It's been a long time since I was in Barcelona, but the flavour of the city has stayed fresh in my mind. Gorgeous!

I have a friend who spent a couple of years in and around Barcelona. Your pictures kind of brought it alive for me.

Thanks!

I've never been outside of my United States, but I'd dearly love to travel the world over.

Considering that I live comparatively near to Spain, it's a shame that I have never made it to Barcelona (or any other Spanish city). ;)

Great photos!
