Barcelona is my favorite city in the world that I’ve been to so far in my travels. I lived there for a summer during college and have been back a couple of times since. I love the laid-back, cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city and the nightlife is second to none. This past week, a friend asked for some recommendations for an upcoming trip to the city so I thought I’d list out some of my favorite things to do in Barcelona.
A good portion of Barcelona was designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. One of my favorite Gaudi sites is Park Güell. The lizard mosaic at the entrance is one of the most recognized symbols of the city. The top of the park also provides one of the best views over the city and the ocean. You can see more about Park Güell here.
This week’s photo is of the famous lizard mosaic in Barcelona, Spain, located at the entrance of Park Güell. The sculpture was designed by the modernist architect Antoni Gaudi and is one of the most popular symbols of Barcelona. The city remains one of my favorite and one of the major reasons is all of the unique art like this.
It’s that time again folks! Another year has passed and some amazing new memories made. I want to share some of my travel highlights with you as we close 2012 and look towards the new year.
This week’s photo is of a rain forest in Madrid. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “Wait, Madrid is a big city. How can there be a rain forest there?” To answer your question, inside of Madrid’s Atocha train station lies a not-so-tropical rain forest.
This week’s photo is of a sunset in Sevilla, Spain, taken along the river that runs through the city. Also check out some more night shots from Sevilla.
