Recently I visited beautiful Barcelona for a best friend’s hen do, and this is what we got up to during our 3 days in Barcelona…
An early morning flight from London Luton with easyJet meant we had half a day of exploring ahead of us. Firstly we checked into our apartment in the Dreta de l’Eixample complex before heading towards the Gothic Quarter for a spot of late lunch at Bar Lobo to graze on incredible tapas and sip sangria. Post grub we explored the local area taking in the architecture before finding ourselves in a bar (it was a hen do after all!). Following this, we were determined to find a roof top bar and luckily stumbled upon the Hotel Pulitzer Terrace where we stayed put for the rest of the evening, as not only was there food and drink but also a DJ to help us dance the night away.
Today was the day we somewhat risked our lives (!) and hired out GoCar‘s which turned out to be a great way to see the main sights, and the onboard commentary gives you a good guide to the city.
We lunched at Mamarosa Beach Restaurant followed by drinks at the W Bar before heading to a jazz club for some late night blues.
After a leisurely morning we headed down to the church of the Sagrada Família for a pre-booked visit (tip: the queues are huge, book your tickets in advance). The whole building, inside and out, is simply stunning, and the fact that it is still being completed all these years later shows just how much Gaudí was respected and adored.
The next day we simply checked out, grabbed a bit of lunch and then headed for the airport to fly back to Blighty.
This was my second visit to Barcelona and somehow I don’t think I’m done with the place just yet!
