Barcelona, Spain : Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia, Picasso Museum

sagrada familia photos

Hi Everyone, 🙂

Here’s my first post from Spain Barcelona. We ended up in Spain during the long weekend time. Sunday and Labour’s day..so we got into a bit lazy mood ourselves and moved a bit slow. Plus the travel fatigue is hitting us now even though the trip is not over yet. I also got super home sick one day and called up my mom then. After that I was okay. 😛

Anyhoo, let me show you what all we did in these few days. We stayed at Hotel Alma, which was an epitome of minimalism to an extent that they don’t have a door in their bathroom. loll!! I mean it’s a shocker but you get used to it. But absooolutely gorgeous rooms that were filled with light and space. The staff was super helpful and the food was yum. The location was amazing. High on recommendation list. It was a unique experience.

Barcelona is a city of the architect Antoni Gaudi amongst many other things. There are a lot of masterpieces built by him spread across Barcelona. So we started with Casa Mila, or La Pedrera, that was just walking distance from our hotel. Spent a day eating tapas, gulping down sh*t load of Sangria, and walking around hand in hand doing nothing. 😛

The next day we went to see another work of art by Gaudi- La Sagrada Familia. It was STUNNING to say the least. You are left awestruck seeing the thought and and the insane architecture there. Later we walked around the quaint streets near Picasso Museum. You are not allowed to take photos of Picasso’s work but we took our pics where we could.

Oh the orange dress. I bought it in Greece. Just decided to wear it during the day for sight seeing. A girl working at the exit of Picasso museum somehow found me on insta and complimented me in the comments. Sweet isn’t it? :)) HERE’s her comment. 🙂

I hope you enjoy the pics. I’d try to post the final part asap. Love youuuu. :-*

The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain), designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926). Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site,[5] and in November 2010 Pope Benedict XVI consecrated and proclaimed it a minor basilica, as distinct from a cathedral which must be the seat of a bishop.

Themes throughout the decoration include words from the liturgy. The towers are decorated with words such as "Hosanna", "Excelsis", and "Sanctus"; the great doors of the Passion façade reproduce words from the Bible in various languages including Catalan; and the Glory façade is to be decorated with the words from the Apostles' Creed. The three entrances symbolize the three virtues: Faith, Hope and Love.

  18. Saniya says:

    I went there this summer in May on our first anniversary and it was truly an out of the world experience !
    If you visit Barcelona again and are a fan of Mughlai food, do visit the Zeeshan Kebabish restaurant, it is a Pakistani restaurant, not a fancy place but the flavor is simply out of the world !!!!!! Also don’t miss out on visiting the Montserrat Monastery 🙂

  19. Jatin Singhal says:

    Hi Ma’am & Sir,
    Hitherto i have been a big fan of sanjeev sir, but after going through such immaculately written blog posts, u also have become a great inspiration for me. Needless to say, Next time whenever i will be travelling i will not forget to look up to ur blogs. This blog has reminded me of My trip to Barca. You have so excellently presented the exquisite street beauty & finest architecture by gaudi. If you ever visit to that heaven again, do visit “Swad- The Indian Restaurant”. It’s owned by my elder brother.
    Thank you and i am looking forward to reading more of these type of posts.
