Sail the Iberian Peninsula - 2019

BARCELONA

This will be our third visit to this iconic Spanish city, but we have never before been able to visit Sagrada Familia by Gaudi. Zegrahm made sure that we were inside the curious but overwhelming cathedral this time. Barcelona is such a wonderful walking city because of the tree-lined pedestrian walkway—The Rambla which begins at the harbor (The monument to Christopher Columbus) and ends at the Plaza Catalonia to the north—3/4 quarters of a mile in length. This walkway is lined with restaurants, shops, hotels, kiosks, and statuary. We were here on Easter Holiday time so the crowds strolling along were especially large. However, that does not detract from the experience because everyone is having a good time. After sleeping away our first afternoon at the Hotel 1848 because of jetlag, we wandered out into the evening in search of something to eat. Right next door to the hotel was a tapas café called La Luzia where we thoroughly enjoyed our supper. Then we went back out onto La Rambla into a balmy and beautiful evening with the almost full moon shining brightly overhead. We walked around until 11 p.m. before returning to the hotel.
