Booking a foreign hotel is a bit frightening, but Michael found us a tiny apartment right in the heart of Barcelona with great reviews and an American price point...good job honey! We even had a small terrace to enjoy the city hustle and bustle at tree level:) Having a Spanish speaking son-in-law was a bonus for touring around the city!
Jonathan studied a bit of Spanish architect Antoni Guadi in school and led the way on a trek around the city to see two of his fantastic structures. The first was Casa Batllo, with it's colorful tile, mask like terraces and rolling structure face, this was the most unique building my eyes had ever seen...until the next Gaudi building!
The building right next door was beautiful in more of a traditional Spanish style...I am in architecture heaven here! The heavy gothic trim is an amazing feat of craftsmanship.
Before we could enjoy the gorgeous sight above....there was more trekking through the city wit our suitcases:) Do you see a theme here....
As the city is sinking, buildings are being flooded 100 times a year! Some of the bottom floors of palaces have grass growing in the bottom floor.
