We had originally thought we would spend two full days in Barcelona and head home the following morning. We realized there was still so much more to see we decided to spend the third day touring the city.
We started our day at the Palau de la Música Catalana. The building was created by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a concert venue and it is in one prettiest areas of Barcelona. It was completed in 1908. Another UNESCO heritage site for Barcelona as of 1997. It was a treat for the eyes. I loved the stained-glass ceiling and Brad’s favorite was the statue of the procession of the Valkyries.
We heard the organ play which was great to listen to. It was the first organ in Barcelona that was not in a church. The acoustics were very nice, and I could sit there all afternoon and listen to it.
Our legs were not going to carry us anymore so we decided to take the hop on hop off bus tour to see some of the missed jewels of the city. It was a little cold up top but the views made it worth the chill.
After we hopped off we headed back to Valencia carrying wonderful memories of one heck of a birthday celebration.
Looking forward to more exploring. Glad you could join us.
