My three days in Barcelona

First day:

Sagrada Familia

Dedicated to the holy family and saint Joseph,this grandiose church is Gaudi’s master piece.The architect’s desire was that the church begun 1882 and still under construction,should be an expression in store of the christian faith.It’s unmissable if you want to understand this unconventional designer. Beautiful interior

Els 4cats

The decor of this old artists’ haunt, which opened in 1897 is unchanged since the young Picasso exhobited here for the first time.you can find interesting breakfast and brunch menus at the GastroBar or stop in for a coffe break

Casa Batllo Gaudi

The greatest modernist architects,including Antoni Gaudi, did some of their best work here,attempting to outdo one another in ingenuity and imagination

Second day

Parc Guell

Intended by the entrepreneur Eusebi guell to be a garden city for the Catalan bourgeoise,Antoni Gaudi’s delirius creation was never completed the project was transformed into a public park.

The Park opens onto two peculiar mushroom – shaped buildings that have an air if fair tale. A staircase presided over by a “dragon”(actually a salamander) composed of ingenious mosaics leads to the hall of a hundred columns.The undulating roof is adorned with a fantastic mosaic composed of ceramic shards know as trencadis.Finish the tour of this magical park at the casa museu Gaudia where gaudi lived from 20 years

Finaly

Mercat Santa Caterina

This oldest Market Barcelona has had an undulation roof in the form of a coloured mosaic of fruits and vegetables.Inside you enter the world of a traditional market,with food stalls and restaurants serving quality produce
