Santiago to Barcelona


Today we journeyed to the last destination on our trip, Barcelona. We were up and ready to go to the airport by 6:30am, we were all very excited about heading to Barcelona. Things went smoothly at the airport and our short one and a half hour plane flight seemed to go by in no time.
 Upon arrival in Barcelona we were all amazed by the architecture and atmosphere that we experienced. We went to get lunch at a small sandwich shop and then checked into our hotel rooms. We made our way to Barcelona Cathedral and had a look at the stunning structure of the building and went inside a small area for some quiet reflection, after this we headed to explore the gothic quarter in the town. Later we took a visit to Palau Guell,  an amazing metal building designed by Spanish architect and artist Gaudí, the structure incorporating his modern and individually distinctive style. This building was quite different to any of his other designs before. Tomorrow we will be seeing some more of Gaudí’s work as we head to the famous La Sagrada Familia. We roamed the streets and shopped at some of the amazing places here in Barcelona and also explored some other areas of the town. After a long day we were all very tired so we got dinner early, at a beautiful pizzeria overlooking La Ramblas, then headed back to our hotels for an early night. We are all very excited for our next few days in Barcelona and can’t wait to explore more of this beautiful city.
