Barcelona, Spain was our first stop in our trip to Europe. It was by far my favorite because the way Barcelona was set up, it reminded me of Downtown Charleston. And I love Downtown Charleston. The architecture in Barcelona was beautiful. It is just so different from what I’ve ever seen. I found all of Europe to be that way. We all especially loved the church, La Sagrada Familia, which is pictured above.
This picture shows what I mean on why it reminds me of Downtown Charleston. The way the apartments, restaurants, and shops are placed and built, it has the same feel. At least I think it did.
We stayed at the Le Meridien hotel while we were in Barcelona. While we were there, we asked the concierge where a good restaurant would be. He told us about a really old authentic Spanish restaurant. We decided to walk to the restaurant and we never did end up finding it. But we stumbled on a square of restaurants and found this restaurant where I ordered paella. It was really good and I finished with creme brulee for my dessert.
