LA SAGRADA FAMILIA - the monumental human offering of love and devotion to nature and spirit. The magnitude and intricacy is mind blowing and must be experienced up close.

PARK GÜELL - another Gaudi creation, playful and fresh this time. This park makes it onto my list for the mosaics and panoramic views of the whole city. 🦜

And, dont forget the ARC DE TRIUMPH BARCELONA


El Barrio Gótico is the oldest and most-visited neighborhood of the city with labyrinthine streets and small squares of Roman and Medieval origin.

El Raval, opposite the Gothic Quarter on the other side of La Rambla, is colorful and exciting.

El Born is possibly the best of both worlds and my favorite quarter to get lost in.


Albé Barcelona’s chef blends his dual Catalan and Lebanese cultures into their exciting menu.


Graca neighborhood as something exciting is always happening!


Venture beyond the northern hills for a day hike to the beautiful monastery at MONSERRAT. Lookup some pictures for yourself, it is a stunning destination!

Visit BESALU or GIRONA's extensive medieval old towns, and CARDONA, with its impressive castle!
