Tourist in Barcelona

by

EN: Being a tourist in Barcelona has been a dream of mine for a few years that has finally materialized. Ole! 🙂

Was it worth the wait? I can say with all my heart that yes it was!

If I ever return as a tourist to Barcelona, ​​I can also say yes, but only for a city break to finish seeing what I did not managed this time.

Barcelona is a very cosmopolitan and vibrant city, full of colour and contrast. A multicultural  City with people coming from all over the world which is why I believe the Latin culture of the place is loses it’s identity year by year.

Tourist in Barcelona

In this vacation I expected to have a 100% Spanish experience. I had culinary expectations, specific drinks expectations (to be understood exclusively Sangria), music expectations and of course outfits expectations à la chica latina.

The food and the Sangria did not disappointed (except for the very high prices). I ate a great Paella and I was in some of the finest Tapas places. As far as the music is concerned, they have become very commercial like most countries 🙁 , Spanish music has not made its presence on any terrace, restaurant or club. Lucky though the locals, who brought their own devices on the beach, we were delighted with some Latino rhythms.

Tapas

Like never before, on this holiday I only took with me dresses, except for the two pairs of shorts. On every vacation my outfits are following certain line, this year the main focus was on ruffles.

Barcelona is a particularly beautiful city with a special architecture and an exceptional urban plan. There is no street corner where you can take a picture and have an ugly background. It is an absolutely gorgeous city even in peripheral neighbourhoods.

Gothic Quarter

As tourist attractions I checked Ciutadella Park and Arc de Triomphe, these were easy for us as we were accommodated in this area hence it was a pleasure to see them daily <3 . We got “lost” through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, ending a day filled with good energy, with a visit to the Gothic Cathedral.

In the last two days we have spent time visiting the multi-colored Park Güell and, of course, the Sagrada Familia, two artworks of the famous architect Antonio Gaudí. The combination of several architectural styles: Art Nouveau, Catalan Modernism, Noucentism, Spanish Gothic Architecture make the Sagrada Familia an exceptional monument, the colour and light play create a breath-taking show.

About Güell Park the opinions are divided, some are saying it’s too small, others are saying that apart from the famous mosaic lizard you do not have much to see, I say it is amazing! An explosion of colour and shapes merged in a unique style like everything that belongs to UNESCO heritage.

Did you know that: Gaudi designed the park with a religious and at the same time organic and urban significance?

I’ve come back from Barcelona with a big love for mosaic, mentally, I’ve already started decorating my new house 🙂

Untill next time stay fashion!

From Romania with love!

RO: Sa fiu turist in Barcelona este un vis de al meu de vreo 4 ani care in sfarsit s-a materializat. Ole! 🙂

Daca a meritat asteptarea, pot spune cu toata inima ca da!

Daca as mai reveni ca turist in Barcelona pot spune deasemenea ca da, dar, doar pentru un city break pentru a termina de vizitat ce nu am reusit data asta.

Barcelona este un oras foarte cosmopolit, vibrant, plin de culoare si contraste. Aici traiesc laolalta oameni veniti din toate colturile lumii facand parca sa se piarda identitatea culturii latine. Inca de acasa m-am pregatit si la propriu si la figurat pentru o experienta 100% spaniola.  Am avut asteptari ce au tinut de partea culinara, bauturi specifice (a se intelege exclusiv Sangria), muzica si vestimentatie à la chica latina 😉

Ce tine de partea culinara si Sangria, pentru ca astea veneau mereu la pachet, nu au dezamagit (exceptand preturile foarte mari). Am mancat o Paella grozava si am fost in unele dintre cele mai gustose localuri de Tapas. In ceea ce priveste muzica au devenit foarte comerciali ca mai toate tarile, muzica spaniola nu si-a facut simtita prezenta pe la nici o terasa, restaurant sau club. Noroc cu localnicii care isi aduceau pe plaja propriile device-uri si ne mai incantau cu ritmurile caliente.

Ca niciodata, in aceasta vacanta mi-am luat cu mine doar rochii, exceptie facand cele doua perechi de pantaloni scurti. Si cum in fiecare an am o dominanta in vestimentatia pentru vacanta, anul acesta dominanta a fost volanasele.

Barcelona este un oras deosebit de frumos cu o arhitectura aparte si un plan urbanistic de exceptie. Nu exista colt de strada unde sa faci o poza si sa ai un background urat. Este absolut superb chiar si in cartierele periferice.

Ca si obiective turistice am bifat Ciutadella Park si Arcul de Triumf, noi fiind cazate chiar in aceasta locatie era o placere sa le vezi zilnic <3 . Ne-am “ratacit” pe stradutele inguste intesate cu buticuri din cartierul Gothic, incheind periplul unei zile incarcate de energia locului, cu o vizita la catedrala Gothica.

In ultimele doua zile ne-am rezervat timp pentru a vizita multicolorul parc Güell si bineanteles Sagrada Familia, doua opere de arta a celebrului arhitect Antonio Gaudí. Imbinarea mai multor stiluri arhitecturale: Art Nouveau, Modernism catalan, Noucentism, Arhitectura gotica spaniola fac din Sagrada Familia un monument de exceptie, jocul de culori si lumini compun un spectacol care iti taie respiratia.

Despre parcul Güell parerile sunt impartite, unii spun ca este prea mic, altii spun ca inafara de celebra soparla din mozaic nu prea ai ce vedea eu spun ca este superb. O explozie de culoare si forme imbinate intr- un stil unic ca orice apartine patrimoniului UNESCO.

Stiati ca: Gaudi a conceput parcul cu o semnificație religioasă și în același timp organică și urbană?

M-am intros din Barcelona cu o mare dragoste pentru mozaic, mental mi-am inceput deja amenajarea noii mele case 🙂

Pana data viitoare ramaneti in tendinte!

Din Iasi cu dragoste!
