A Weekend in Barcelona
Last month I spent a couple of days in Barcelona; a wonderful, vibrant city with some architectural gems.
My personal highlight was the Barcelona Pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929, a tranquil space in the heart of the city and beautiful example of modernist architecture and interior design. We also enjoyed walking around the Fundació Joan Miró which is housed in a stunning building designed by Josep Lluis Sert.
We had seen the Gaudi favourites, La Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell, on previous visits but if you were thinking of visiting Barcelona I would definitely recommend going to these as well.
Don't miss the following...
- The Barcelona Pavilion
- Fundació Joan Miró
- Cable car up to Castell de Montjuic and sea/city views from the top
- Hiring bikes and cycling north along the beaches to Parc del Forum
- Eating pintxos on Carrer del Blai

- Parc Güell
