Barcelona 2013


The last international city I visited was Barcelona, Spain, at the end of my Mediterranean cruise last year. Such a beautiful city! This layout only scratches the surface of all that I saw, but hopefully it conveys the spirit of the city!

The text reads as follows:

"The last morning of our cruise, we sailed in to the port of Barcelona in Spain! This was the fifth country I had visited in two weeks. Our group chose to stay in the city for a day, flying home the next morning. I’m so glad we did. Beautiful!!"


"This city underwent a major overhaul in anticipation of the Summer Olympic games in 1992. Taking a hop-on/hop-off bus tour was a spectacular idea, giving us a chance to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time. The rest of the group hopped off at La Sagrada Familia (upper left), a church designed by Antoni Gaudi. Construction on this minor basilicia began in 1883, but it’s only just past the midpoint in its progress. Some are saying that it’s expected to be completed in 2026, one hundred years after Gaudi’s death.

The photos on the bottom show some other well known structures that characterize the modernism of the city. The Torre Agbar, which looks like a bullet, marks the gateway to the technology district in the city. It’s 38 stories high. Next is a sculpture called Barcelona Face, designed by Roy Lichtenstein. And lastly, there’s a giant lobster. This smiling creature in fiberglass was originally designed for a seafood restaurant. When the restaurant closed, the city council bought it to add some character to the waterfront near Port Vell."
