As I’ve previously said in other posts from our week in Cap De Salou, Spain, my wife and I are not the sit-by-the-pool-sunning-ourselves sort, preferring instead to go for a wander to see what we can find of interest and take photographs of. For most of the time on that holiday this was something we did on our own but when we announced we were going to hop on a bus to take us to the reasonably nearby Barcelona we managed to attract a companion in the form of my brother. His wife and kids couldn’t be persuaded to come along as well and my dad had trouble walking so it was just the three of us who made our way to the Catalonia capital city.
We didn’t have a huge amount of time in Barcelona so we knew we wouldn’t be able to see everything the city had to offer but our first point to stop at would be Park Güell. During our time in Spain we also saw Antoni Gaudí‘s home town of Reus so seeing some of his designs in the flesh in Barcelona was an obvious choice to make. We decided to walk the streets of Barcelona from where the bus dropped us off as the day was pleasant enough and it would give us a chance to observe and photograph some of the fascinating architectural styles of the city’s building as we got a bit of exercise.
The walk proved to be longer than we’d anticpated although the views of the stunning facades on the buildings we passed as we strode along the Barcelona’s streets snapping photos were wonderful.
