10 Great things to do in Barcelona

Barcelona is one of our favourite cities to visit. It has a fascinating history and culture, as well as some of the greatest architecture in Europe, if not the World. We are huge fans of the works of Antoni Gaudi, so we loved visiting Casa Mila, Park Guell and in particular La Sagrada Familia. Beyond Gaudi's works, the city's Gothic Quarter is a great place to wander and explore with its cobbled street, squares and amazing gothic cathedral. Of course, there are the museums, the restaurants, bars and the beach. Something for everyone!

UNESCO has recognized the works of the great architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926), in particular, seven properties in or near Barcelona, which are a testimony to Gaudí’s exceptional creative contribution to the development of architecture and building technology in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Spain: Andalusia – Córdoba

The City of Córdoba is the capital of the province of Córdoba and has a colourful history. It also has the highest temperatures in Spain and Europe, with average high temperatures around 37 °C (99 °F) in July and August. When we were there it was indeed hot, not quite to those levels, but still toasty.

Spain: Andalusia – Granada, Parque de las Ciencias

If you are in the Andalusian city of Granada why not try a visit to the excellent Parque de las Ciencias (science park). Minutes from the heart of the city this is a great day out for kids and adults of all ages, with a host of interesting galleries and live exhibits.

Spain: Andalusia – the spectacular Ronda

Perched on an inland plateau riven by the 100m fissure of El Tajo gorge, Ronda is Málaga province’s most spectacular town. It has a superbly dramatic location and owes its name to the encircling Serranía de Ronda. A great place to spend a day or two wandering around!

Spain: Figueres – Teatre-Museu Dalí; Salvador Dalí museum

Reaching Figueres late morning meant we beat the rush for visiting the Teatre-Museu Dalí, which houses a fabulous collection of his works and is also the site of his burial. The museum itself was originally a theatre that had fallen into ruin after it was burned during the Spanish Civil War. In the 1960 Dalí and the town mayor decided to rebuild it and dedicate it as a museum to the town’s most famous son.

Spain: Valenican Community – The beautiful city of Valencia

Valencia is one of those cities I have driven by and flown through several times, always meaning to visit. During our most recent visit to Spain we had a few hours to kill before catchign a flight from Valencia to Rome so we thought we take a quick trip in the heart of the city to see what it was all about.
