When I go to Spain, I usually fly from London to my city Zaragoza but Zaragoza airport is really small so luckily we have Ryanair airbuses to get there although sometimes I may fly to Barcelona as it is one of the main airports in Spain and a great tourist destination.
We stayed just for two days in Barcelona before going to my family home, we went to Las Ramblas: the city's main pedestrian thoroughfare, you will surely enjoy mingling with the many other tourists and enjoying the street entertainers and artists at the marina end of the walk where you can see Colon. As it is a busy and vibrant part of the city, it is very frequented by pickpockets so just take sensible precautions…

As you may have noticed in different posts, I love Gardens so we went to my favourite place in this city: Parc Guell. This Park is so beautiful and the views of the city are amazing. You can easily spend a whole day here walking around and enjoying the park. The "monumental zone" is where most of the iconic Gaudí pieces are, and it is the only area of the park that has an entry fee (the rest is totally free).
If you go to Barcelona you must do the “GAUDI TOUR”, visit the main three works of this fabulous Catalan artist: La Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera and Parc Guell.
