Back to Beautiful Barcelona – An Easy Tour of the Sagrada Familia & the Sites of the City
In our second time to Barcelona in less than five months, we decided to explore what Barcelona has to offer. At Christmas, we were in Barcelona but our tour was to nearby Montserrat, with that blog post found here.
Barcelona is such a beautiful city on the Mediterranean Sea. It is very modern, but also maintains its historical charm, especially from the art nouveau buildings. The centerpiece though of Barcelona has to be the Sagrada Familia (Basilica of the Holy Family). Whether your time spent in Barcelona is looking at architecture, the magnificent cathedral still under construction, or just relaxing by the beach, there is something for everyone in Barcelona.
Our visit to Barcelona was a port of call during our May cruise of the Mediterranean. In fact, it was our last port before heading back to Italy. The excursion we decided to take was of the city itself and we had an excellent tour guide made available to us from the cruise line. Barcelona is another one of the great European cities we have visited, and one in which we feel we will return again in the future.
