On our second day, we headed to Sagrada familia the first thing in the morning. We had already bought our tickets the night before, and since we don’t really enjoy being stuffed in a crowded place, we figured we’d hit it first and make our way around the city. Fortunately where we stayed in Barcelona was only about three blocks away from Sagrada familia, so after checking out from the hotel and leaving our luggages with the front desk we made our way down.
It really is a very interesting piece of architecture. Rather very Tim Burton-ish, with interesting fluid lines. After about an hour of walking around, we went for breakfast to Cafe Emma. I don’t know how this happened, but they were out of croissants and napolitanas (basically chocolate croissants) during breakfast hours. I mean, HOW?? And the service wasn’t too impressive either…
Continuing with our tour on Gaudi, we stopped by Casa Batlló and Casa Milà
This was our last day in Barcelona, so after hopping around the town we picked up our stuff again from the hotel, headed to the airport, and waited for our Vueling flight that was delayed for over an hour to get back to Madrid.
