I did so much when I was in Spain that I have decided to break it down and do it by day. I will also create a guide to Barcelona for those of you who want just a highlighted version of the favorite things I did!
The first full day in Barcelona might have been one of my favorites of the trip. There is nothing like wandering around a new place and getting lost in the streets.
We started our day off with an early tour of the Palau de la Musica.
This beautiful concert hall was absolutely beautiful. I loved the architecture inside and it has my favorite ceiling of all time inside. I also love the mosaic pillars on the balcony outside the second floor.
After our tour we wandered around the gothic quarter where we stumbled upon the Barcelona Cathedral. We didn’t go inside but we did spend a good amount of time looking at every Ince of the building from the outside. We then just walked around the narrow streets and alleys looking at all the amazing architecture.
We ended out the day with a trip to Dulcinea for Swiss drinking chocolate and melindros. This is one of my favorite things I ate on my trip and I am still daydreaming about them now. After having these, we went onto dinner at Bodega La Palma where I enjoyed my fist bravas and ham croquets.
The jet lag was very evident to us on our first day and we were exhausted by the end of it. So we had an early night and got lots of rest because the rest of our days were jam packed with activities.
