Destination 5

Barcelona

After visiting the beautiful city of Lisbon inPortugal I'm off to the exciting city of Barcelona, Spain. I will leave Lisbon via Vueling Airlines and land in the Barcelona Airport (BCN) after 1 hour and 45 minutes of flight time. This flight will cost $262 and I will be covering 785 miles.
Barcelona has been described as a passionate and lively city. Barcelona has around 6,000,000 visitors a year, making it the most famous tourist destination in Spain. It is on the Mediterranean coast and offers nice beaches, mountains and forests.
I'll be visiting this beautiful city for 1 night and 2 days. I will be staying at the Hotel Gran Ronda Barcelona for one night which will cost be a total of $140.

During my first day in Barcelona, I will be doing a day trip to Montserrat Royal Basilica. This church is well known and is an absolute must for all tourists to see. With large sculptures and arches, the archetectiural design is breathtaking. The wall designs explain the history of Montserrat and depict shrines and basilicas. The Churches gothic look and black and white marble floor atrium is another thing that makes it such an attraction. Lastly, Black Madonna, a very famous sculpture sits at the back of the Church and is a must see. The tour guide will help me understand the history as I enjoy the spectacular views from the Montserrat mountains.
During day two, I will visit Las Ramblas Street, Barcelona's most famous walking street. It is a very nice street to take a nice walk down and enjoy all the shops, restaurants and entertainment. It is so popular that a famous Spanish poet even said, "It is the only street in the world which I wish would never end." At night, after Las Ramblas, I will go to the Magic Fountain Show. The beautiful fountain was built in 1929 and has been having amazing shows of water, light and music ever since. There is about 2.5 million visitors per year.
