Left Madrid and caught the fast train to Barcelona. The fast train traveled at 300km/hour!!!
Walked around the old district of Barcelona, saw Pala Guell and La Rumba. Had dinner in a wonderful area called Placa Reial. Barcelona won the Spanish cup today so the streets were blocked off and people were everywhere cheering.

Busy day following Gaudi starting with Cassa Batllo which had amazing designs. We called into the Mercat market for something to eat and looked at the beautiful displays of food.
We caught the hop on hop off bus to Bacilica de la Sagrada Familia where we spent 3 hours looking around, wow what an amazing place. We also went up one of the bell towers, for something that's not complete it's huge!
Caught the bus back to town and stopped at La Pedrera, another Gaudi designed building for apartment use. The roof had amazing roof chimneys and vents. Ended up spending another couple of hours there and havin dinner at about 8pm!

Early start for Park Guell, we caught the underground which was pretty easy and got us there in about 10 minutes. The park was quite spectacular with the mosaic seats, walls and sculptures in the front section and the rough ancient style columns at the back. There was a lot to see and we were there for almost 4 hours.
Headed back to the city and luckily we saw all the outdoor places because it rained for the rest of the day! Still managed to get around with umbrelles.
