We were very lucky the sun decided to come out, but it was still freezing. I am definitely glad that I packed layer able pieces on this trip. We started our morning off by exploring Parc Guell. It is probably THE most famous park in Barcelona and I now fully understand why. Not only is this park beautiful, but its also massive which I didn’t realize until I was trying to find the famous mosaic bench and got lost.
This park has so may perfect spots for pictures that my boyfriend and I got a little carried away with taking pictures (no regrets though).
After Parc Guell we decided to grab a coffee and then we were off to our next destination.
We took an audio tour of Sant Pau Hospital and were literally blown away. First of all, this hospital seems more like a palace and was gorgeous. Secondly, this hospital was gigantic with something like 13 different buildings not including the newer still functioning hospital.
Once we finished with our tour, we headed back to our Airbnb to rest a little. Later on we headed back to the gothic quarter to do some shopping where I picked up a pair of handmade espadrilles to take home. I also convinced my boyfriend to get Melindros and Swiss chocolate before dinner.
We headed to the beach to get some paella for dinner. This was probably my favorite meal and I honestly wish I had it one more time before we left.
We had an early night in because we were so exhausted from walking so much and it was in the 40’s by the time we finished dinner. I had absolutely no objections to turning in early for a warm shower and a cozy bed.
