We've just returned from 10 days in Spain with Pete and Robin, and it was amazing. We started in Barcelona, where we spent much of our time walking around admiring the architecture, particularly that of Gaudi. This is one of the facades of La Sagrada Familia, the unfinished cathedral to which he dedicated his last years.
He also designed many other buildings, including Casa Battlo. The roof represents St. George and the dragon.
One of our favorite places was Park Guell, where nothing is in a straight line (or at least it seems that way!)

We went to the Maritime Museum, mainly because the guide book said it was good for kids. Not so much, but this ship was grand.
We also liked the market in Barcelona, where some of the seafood was so fresh it was still moving, which I found a bit creepy.
The candy stall wasn't a bit creepy, though.
