Pretty beach shot taken on the night of San Joan's celebration before all the fireworks which went on all night

The Arena which once served as a bull ring. Now there is a top floor terrace with restaurants and shops on the floors below. It is very nice to have lunch on top of the Arena.

Two decorative "Venetian Towers" frame the road up to Montjuic. On the hillside above is the huge Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya with its superb collection of modern Catalonian art.

Sagrada Familia Cathedral

The Avenue Gaudí stretches from the Sagrada Família to the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau. In the center is a wide pedestrian strip lined with cafes.

Maria and David took us to a real Valencian restaurant, El Gourmet. All four of us ordered the same thing, pan sautéed calamari in olive oil, garlic and herbs.

Palau de la Musica Catalan

The fabulous moderista Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau whose archectect, Lluís Domčnech i Montaner, also designed the Palau de la Musica. The hospital was built between 1901 and 1930 and remained in service until 2009.

Underground tunnels connect the buildings of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau

A delightful tiny restaurant. Sad that we cannot remember the name. They were so creative with their dishes ... but wait! Sueann remembered enough to let us find the name of this fine little restaurant, it is "Bastaix."
