5 Things Not to Miss in Barcelona

Worship the Sagrada Família

Worship the Sagrada Família in Barcelona Spain!

Barcelona has many treasures, but one stood out to us above all the others, literally and figuratively, Sagrada Família. The massive basilica is without a doubt the pinnacle of architect and designer Antoni Gaudí's incredible career. And we do mean pinnacle. Huge spires rise into the sky over fifty stories high - and it's not even finished yet. More Sagrada Família...

Visit the Fantastical Park Güell

Visit the Fantastical Park Güell in Barcelona Spain!

Barcelona quite frankly would not be the city that it is today had it not been for Antoni Gaudí. A walk up several hundred steps, to one of the world's wildest parks, showed us how Gaudí really got to cut loose, not as a builder, but as a landscape architect. His concept's incredible interaction with the natural world had us feeling like we were inside the pages of a Dr. Seuss book. More about Park Güell...

Go Goth - Explore the Barri Gòtic

The Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, Spain

If the heart of Barcelona is the old city's Gothic Quarter, known as Barri Gòtic in the local Catalan dialect, then the aorta must be La Rambla. The stretch of streets has become one giant open air theater and is truly one of the world's premier venues for street performers. More Gothic Quarter...

Eat as Many Tapas as You Can

Eat as many tapas in Spain that you can!

What would a visit to Spain be without sampling the tapas? Incomplete we'd say. But then tapas are a culinary style that is right up our alley, kind of a national tradition of appy crawling. We were determined to get our mitts on every type of tapa we could during our stay in Barcelona. We believe we achieved greatness. More on Tapas...
