  1. Long time since I have been to Barcelona... But, for me, everything around Gaudi is a must-see - this guy was simply a genius! The Sagrada Familia is put of this world! Have a wonderful time and sleep well in your night-train! :)

  2. MUST SEE: Parque Guell, gorgeous!!!!!!

    And Las Ramblas is so fun, especially in the early evening!

    So envious, I miss Spain!

  4. My sister lives in Barcelona. You definitely hit the major highlights - Parc Guell is gorgeous, and the Sagrada Familia is awesome. Have fun ambling down las ramblas (hold on to your bag!). I don't know how much time you have, but heading down to the beach for lunch is worthwhile if it's a nice day. Take a walk through the old part of town - it's beautiful. The double-decker tour buses are actually pretty good in Barcelona, and they're a good way to see all of these sights (plus other Gaudi buildings along the way!). Have a great time! Jealous!

  5. I loved, loved, loved Barcelona and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The Sagrada Familia and the other Gaudi buildings are must sees for me (the roof of La Pedrera is amazing).

    I loved strolling the streets of the Barri Gotic and the Passeig de Gracias is some great shopping.

    I'm really bad with restaurant/bar names but I do recall that Cal Pep was very good. The nightlife is also great there.

    For a day-ish trip I would recommend Montserrat. Even if you're not particularly religious I think its just such a serene and peaceful place.

    Have a great time! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  9. I went to Barcelona in high school, I had the most amazing pineapple (ha!) of my LIFE. It was from a little market there and I've never had anything like it to this day! Have so much fun! I'm jealous!
