Where there’s a will, there’s a way

In Spain, Barcelona is on the way from the Pyrenees to Mediterranean coast. It is the 2nd city of Spain after Madrid, but the first from economic and touristic point of view, especially after the summer Olympics in 1992, which meant a true Renaissance of

THE CITY.

When you say Barcelona, automatically you think of one of three artists: Pablo Ruiz Picasso – a painter, sculptor, graphic artist, ceramist – (1881 – 1973), who moved to Barcelona in 1885 from Galicia, Salvador Dali (1904- 1989), who lived and died in Figueres – friend of the poet Federico Garcia Lorca, but most famous for his love for Galia, and the architect Antoni Gaudi – (1852-1926), who gave a new different face to the city between the sea and mountains.

Barcelona is a melanj of building with roman architecture, gothic or/and modernist.The medieval capital – the gothic style is in its element – Barcelona has a small center like Venice if you are looking close at the architecture. St. Eulalia, the great Gothic cathedral – is free to visit till 12 and after 17 o’clock.

Barcelona is above all, a destination for gourmets. You have to try something that is specific, you cannot miss Sangria, dry and salty ham (you can’t get enough), pink salmon pink are extremely good. Many restaurants have seafood, paella and more other different combinations.

 

The list of symbols here includes Casa Mila or La Pedrera, Casa Battló, Casa Amatller, all of them can be admired during a promenade on the boulevard.
Another big famous boulevard in Barcelona is La Rambla. A walk on the Rambla is bohemian and cosmopolitan. Lot of people, lot of statues from Christopher Columb, Don Quijote, pirates, witches to some other “oddities” form the ordinary day. At the fist view you say that you would never go back in that overcrowded area, getting lost between so many human being at the same place, but you will always go back there and becoming an incurable bohemian.

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way” are some of the words written near to a human statues. Fine encouragement to start a day, isn’t it?
