BARCELONA DAY 5 | PARK HOPPING, FOOD + SHOPPING

I am sad to say that this was my last day in Barcelona. This was also one of my favorite days in the city. It was a beautiful Saturday and the sun finally decided to brace us with her presence. I honestly couldn’t have ask for a better day.

We started off by going to Hoffmann Bakery and grabbing the most delicious croissant I have ever had in my life. We sat in the little street behind the bakery and just ate our pastries while watching the people go about their day. It was such a good start to the day.

From Hoffman we walked to the Parc de la Ciutadella.

We walked around this gorgeous park while families and puppies played in the grass around us. We came upon the most gorgeous fountain at the end of the park and decided to stop and take pictures and overall just soak in the magic. It was like stepping back in time.

From the park, we headed to the Arc de Triomf. It was so large and so so pretty. Unfortunately it was blocked off for some event so I had to make lemonade out of lemons to get a cute picture. I literally climbed up a giant lamppost, but it is my favorite picture and I have zero regrets.

We then headed out for lunch. If I haven’t mentioned this before, my boyfriend was in chard go 90% of the food places. We did a lot of tapas bars and I feel like it was such a fun experience hopping around them. There was only one time when we had some trouble getting into one and it was on this day.

We wanted to get La Cova Furmada for lunch after seeing them on a YouTube video during our research. We did not expect to wait about an hour to get in and be one of the last parties that were let in before they closed down. We felt very lucky to have made it through the threshold and get to taste the deliciousness that are bombas. I had the pan con tomato, bombas (little potato balls with seasoned beef), and sangria. All delicious!

After Lunch we did some shopping in the streets of Barcelona. We found some souvenirs for family and friends, we visited a very old nougat shop, and we bought some treats from Casa Gispert.

We stopped by our Airbnb to drop off our goodies and headed to our last destination for the day– Parc del Laberint d’Horta.

This park was something out of a fairytale. It was a labyrinth park built for some princess forever ago and was just STUNNING. We spent all afternoon wandering the maze and exploring all the little secret gardens. I honestly felt like I was in Bridgerton and needed to be in a dress holding an old book with a parasol.

We decided to get dinner to-go and head back to our Airbnb very early because we had to wake up at 4am to get to the airport.

And just like that our Barcelona trip was over. I hope you enjoyed my day recaps of my trip and I will be creating a Barcelona guide in the next week or so.
