If you’ve been following along, you know we’ve seen a lot of Gaudi while in Barcelona…naturally. We’ve been to La Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera and now Park Guell completes the trifecta.
If you know very little about a destination, it’s hard to pick the best area of a city to stay in. I chose our Barcelona hotel based on reviews and accessibility but we didn’t really know where we were going.
Along the most popular street in the city sits the oldest cocktail bar in Barcelona, and if you’re not paying attention, you’ll walk right by it. Las Boadas occupies a tiny corner on Las Ramblas; it’s very unassuming with a small door and simple lettering on the outside.
Casa Mila, also known as La Pedrera, is one of Antoni Gaudi’s most famous works in Barcelona. We toured Casa Mila and La Sagrada Familia in the same day and I’m glad we went here first.
I’ve been dying to go to a futbol (soccer) game ever since that time I was in Buenos Aires and one of the local teams lost, causing them to drop to a lower division. The fans were so pissed that they attempted to lock the opposing team’s fans in the stadium and burn it to the ground.
La Sagrada Familia has over 102,000 reviews on TripAdvisor with an almost 5 star average. To put these numbers in perspective, Machu Picchu only has 14,000 reviews and Angkor Wat currently has 29,000.
