To be more (cost) efficient, we took Movelia night bus (23:00) from Madrid to Barcelona. Book early and it only costs 18 euro! Arrived in Barcelona Sants around 6.30 AM, put backpack in the station locker and walked to the first Gaudi’s building we visited, the Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

La Ramblas, the ‘it’ road in Barcelona where you can find almost everything, from shops, food, and lost tourists like me!

Although the tour allowed us to be in the cathedral for only 10 minutes, I could absorb its beauty in an instant.

Placa Sant Felip Neri in Gothic Quarter, just behind the Baroque Church. It is said that Gaudi went to this church every day, on foot, although it is quite far from where he resided

A visit to Barcelona is not complete without going to the beach! Although the city is rather big, the T10 ticket (zone 1), that covers the city center is indeed a bonus. Just less than 10 euro!
