The bricks, cement and steel of Barcelona


Another throwback day in Barcelona summer 2015 which is another full day of leg exercise that only consist of lots of walking and taking pictures. In a sunny scorching sun too.

Where did we go this time? I can tell: lots of culture, architect and history.

From our hotel we walked the following streets: Avinguda del Paral, La Rambla, over the boulevard (more soon) and we visited the Palau Güell building which is designed by Gaudi. And you’ve guessed it; it’s a very nice building! This time we bought tickets to go inside and explored the building literally from head to toe. It was quite a nice and learning activity!

Then we got hungry and thirsty and ate café food at chain café called 365 Café (more soon too!).

And the rest? Lots of random buildings and steel art works inside Barcelona for you guys!

Alweer een terugblik van een dag in Barcelona zomer 2015. Een dag dat bestond uit: veel lopen en kiekjes maken met de camera en dit in onder de Spaanse zon.

Waar gingen we dit keer naar toe? Een ding is zeker verbonden: cultuur, architect en geschiedenis.

We liepen vanuit ons hotel naar de volgende straten: Avinguda del Paral, La Rambla, over de boulevard (binnenkort meer) en we bezochten het Palau Güell gebouw dat is ontworpen door Gaudi. En je raadt het al, het is een prachtig gebouw! Dit keer kochten we toegangskaartjes en we verkende het gebouw letterlijk van kop tot teen. Een leuk leeractiviteit!

Daarna een snelle hap en drank bij een keten café genaamd 365 Café (ook binnenkort meer!).

En de rest? Veel willekeurige gebouwen en stalen kunstwerken in Barcelona voor jullie die ik hieronder laat zien!

My favorite steel
Mercat de Sant Antoni: indoor market. 

Reminds me of Mickey Mouse ears for some reason.

Old city wall


And another futuristic design between all the oldies.
Palau Güell

My family and myself were lucky and got our tickets with (student) discounts. It was really lucky and a bit naughty too because my student pass is already expired but the ticket seller didn't see it. Or didn't care. Anywho!
The line for the Palau Güell was not terribly long either. Maybe because we enter the place at late afternoon. And yes! You are allowed to take pictures inside.
TIP: If you want, you can get a free audio device that gives information about all the rooms and chambers. 
 For a second I felt like a peasant wearing flip flops walking on this majestic rug. 

A beautiful floor that leads to the basement. 

The rooftop was one of my favorite part because of the view and the top pieces but be careful of the slippery tiles here. My flip flops lost a few grips a few times.

 What a timing when me and my family went to the rooftop and it's about to rain and thunder! Odd Barcelona weather.

More random
 Looks like something out of Harry Potter. Hogwarts anyone?
