Anyone else hoping for barcelona holidays? Oh, how I would love to visit the sites, taste the food, and sit along the beaches. The spectacular Sagrada Família (Holy Family) church has become a symbol of the city. It would be an amazing experience to see where Gaudí’s work stopped and successors continued. Park Güell is another display of Gaudi’s imaginative work on a grand scale. Set over 42 acres, this remarkable hillside public park, combines nature and modern design and admission is free. Imagine, after a day of touring the city, enjoying a free evening watching the Magic Fountain illuminations show at Plaça Espanyol. You definitely would not hear “Mom, I’m BORED!” in Barcelona.
