Barcelona.. WOW what a city! Architecturally the city is hard to beat (IMO it isnt beaten by many). Gaudi's a genius! The skyline is great and has a landmark (the Sagrada Familia which btw isnt completed yet). As a EUROPEAN skyline its pretty much perfect. But i will have to give it a 8.5 .Unbelievable city- culture and art amazing! The only city IMO that you can just walk the streets the entire day and be ALWAYS entertained.
btw Beth- Dime is the best song

Viva Espana!

Skyline- 7/10

City-10+/10


I love Barcelona, absolutely brilliant.

There is so much to do, it's hard to see everything you want within a traditional 1 week holiday.

I visited Barcelona, during "la Merce," which I was told by locals is a celebration of a Spanish patron saint. There was a truly carnival atmosphere. As part of the festival, there was a spectacular fireworks display on the beach, near Barcelonata and Port Colon.

The funicular is a great method by which to reach montjuic where the olympic stadium is situated on a hill- providing spectacular views of the city. The pedestrianised areas around the olympic stadium are also very nice and clean, and would be heaven for people into skateboarding or rollerblading.

Also, nearby is that stunning museum and those famous fountains, which produce a spectacular display every evening. The area around the olympic village is stunning. Visitind the picasso museum is also a must. There is a good chronological display of a lot of his work, which towrards the latter stages of his life started to be abstract, in comparison to his earlier work, the most interesting of which was the "blue phase," which if I can remember correctly was done during the time he spent in Paris, during the early 20th century.

La Ramblas is excellent with all those pet shops and street entertainers. That 1 street alone, can provide days of entertainment. Sagrada Familia was started in 1882 I believe, and the tour guides inside estimate that it will take around 40 years to complete, as they've still to construct the 2 main towers/ spires, the tallest of which I believe will be around 175m in height.
Going up Sagrada Familia is great, and at intervals, there are observation places, which provide stunning views of the city.

I can't wait to return there........................

Barcelona is, no doubt, one of the best cities in Europe! But, in 2002, when I were there, I only saw 2 skyscrapers... Fortunately, it seems that this will change in the future!

Wonderful city, but the same cannot be said of its skyline... The new buildings will improve things further, though!
