It has been 15 years since first visited Barcelona yet my memories of fondness for this city never faded. I was thrilled to see the city new through adult eyes and with all the wonderful personal recommendations brought to me through social media (thank you guys for that!).
Of course we did the classics: coffee at 4 Gats, many paella and sangria moments, the Picasso Museum, Sagrada Familia, Park Güell (cover photo & magical wonderland), people watching walking along Las Ramblas, drinks at El Nacional, lunch at Big Fish, dinner at Tapas 24, Saboc (their menu is arranged by temperature!) and my favorite meal which was at Entrepanes Diaz (where we simply let the waiter bring us all the house specials until we were too full to continue).
Though I did not have a lot of free time, I greatly enjoyed when I was walking the city and I look forward to coming back again to continue my discovery of all that is Barcelona. See below for some snapshots of my favorite moments and links to the places I loved most!
