Great shots of both cities liman, thanks for showing all of them. I too am very fond of Madrid having been twice in the last 4 years.

very true

i have to disagree also about barcelona's cathedral being the finest example of gothic in Catalonia. its facade is foreign to meditarranean gothic (it's not the original facade.it was built in the final years of XIX century) and IMO if you are looking for pure mediterranean gothic there are finer examples in Barcelona like Santa María del Mar or Santa María del Pí


Being said that, great photos of two great cities

I've said it is the best example of 'Catalan gothic', a specific form of gothic, I've read that somewhere And thanks for the info about the Palace, I didn't go deep in it, it just reminded me of Buda Castle and Schonbrunn somehow, I believed it was because of the Habsburgs, but never mind, still beautiful thou

catalan gothic is part of what we call ''mediterranean gothic'' and the facade of barcelona's cathedral is all but mediterranean gothic.Don't get me wrong. the building is great but it's not pure mediterranean gothic as the other ones i mentioned

of course it's just a matter of opinions

GREAT set of pictures! made me wanna visit this city even more now!

I think this could be one of the most attractive cities in Europe, far better looking and more inviting than London, Paris etc.

one can't, also, ignore the fact that BCN has a fantastic weather, and that its never too cold...
