Commentary from Ayana:
The soul of a city is usually in its marketplace. Mercat de la Boqueria is mostly for the tourists, but the food is oh so real.
We paid a little extra (2.5 Euro) and took the lift up to the top of La Sagrada Familia, an active construction site. Worth it for the closer looks at the intricate work high up, but leave your vertigo, claustrophobia, nyctophobia, and any other irrational fears down below.
Barcelona is sprawling, in case you thought we were skipping around some little Spanish hamlet, with La Sagrada Familia at the center. That dark brown structure just right of center, that looks like a four poster bed.
Where do orange trees grow on the street?
