  • Not So Popular Modernist Barcelona

    Not So Popular Modernist Barcelona
    I’m sure that when you hear about Barcelona you will immediately think of Gaudi and modernist architecture (Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell, Casa Batlló…). But the truth is, Barcelona is full of modernist buildings that sometimes go unnoticed. Let’s give these works of art some justice and show off some of these not so popular places.

  • La Boqueria Market

    La Boqueria Market
    The market of "La Boqueria" is a beautiful place in the centre of Barcelona, just located on the main Ramblas, mid-way between Plaça Catalunya and the seafront. Don't be afraid to enter in this crowded place, were the merchants are yelling around to sell their products (the best, of course) and where your eyes can contemplate fish & seafood, vegetables & fruits, fresh meat and a lot of other local productions of very great quality. Sure, that gives you hunger to see all this... in this case, go until the end of the market place, and before you come out, a little bit on your right, you'll found the "Bar de la Boqueria" who serves you all you want in typical specialities of Barcelona!! If you find a seat, take it quickly, a lot of people know this place, and once you're sitting at the bar, you don't want to leave the place until you've tasted a lot of the food you see under your eyes...!! Have a nice walk and a nice meal! And take pictures!! :))))

    Travel in 2011: Winter in Barcelona
    I was lucky enough to sneak a cheeky trip to Barcelona onto the end of my 2011. I had never been there before and thought that it was a wonderful place to photograph. Plus with the glorious sunshine that we were lucky enough to experience, we consider it as a huge bonus!

    Instax Photos of My Favorite City in Spain: Barcelona
    Six days, two packs of Instax Mini film and one Fuji Cheki 50 camera to capture a glimpse of what this amazingly wonderful and beautiful city has to offer. From the train ride into the city to a stroll down La Rambla to the beautiful waterfront, and of course, seeing plenty of Gaudi’s works of art throughout the city!
  • La Boqueria

    La Boqueria
    I had a wonderful time in Barcelona. It's one of my favorite cities. It's a very modern city, but it's the old part that always makes me come back. During a very hot day I was looking for some gifts to offer to my friends that stayed in Lisbon (my home town) at "Ramblas" one of the most famous sidewalks in Europe. Suddenly I found a fresh place where the colors, the smells and the flavors are different than all the other places that I visited before. The place that I am talking about is called "La Boqueria". It's a typical market where people can find all the kinds of fruits, vegetables, fishes and a lot off different exotic things like bugs, for example.

    Do you know the MACBA in Barcelona? What is it?? It's the famous "Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona", great place of contemporary art, great building, and great place where the daily part of the Sonar festival takes place. It's located near of the "Plaça Catlunya" and the "Ramblas" in the centre of the city (Pl. dels Angels, 1). Easy to find, just follow the signs... The building was inaugurated 1995 and is the work of the architect Richard Meier.
  • The Jungle of Fear

    The Jungle of Fear
    You might know Salou, a town located at the coast of Tarragona, Spain. You may have even heard about Port Aventura, a theme park placed on the outskirts of Salou but what most of you may not be aware of is what happens in the park when October comes.
  • Tibidabo

    Tibidabo is a mountain 512 meters above Barcelona which boasts of spectacular views over the city. Not only is it known for its panorama opportunities but on it also resides one of the oldest amusement parks in Spain as well as a majestic church (Church of the Sacred Heart / Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón in Spanish / Sagrat Cor in Catalan).
  • Park Güell

    Park Güell
    Park Güell is definitely one of the highlights of Barcelona. Constructed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi back in the years 1900-1914, this park offers you a small peak into the mind of Gaudi and what inspires his art. You will see how he moulded and shaped everything from benches to ceilings and walls in the form of nature...various animals, leaves and waves. As you enter the park (which is enormous), you are entranced by all the gorgeous mosaic tiles that cover nearly EVERYTHING, including the famous dragon which seems to be guarding the park.
  • My Favourite Place in Barcelona

    My Favourite Place in Barcelona
    Tibidabo is Barcelona's theme park, which is an old and magical place that is ideal for getting lost in. Of course, it's also an ideal location to take beautiful photographs of especially on clear and sunny days.

    Park Guell: Perhaps the Trippiest Park in the World
    Park Guell was designed by architectural genius Antoni Gaudi, and is quite frankly, trippy!
  • Barcelona: Sónar Festival

    Barcelona: Sónar Festival
    The festival of advanced music and multimedia art Sónar is held in mid-June in Barcelona. You will find established artists of electronic music like Orbital, Jeff Mills and Carl Craig along with other proposals lesser known but much more interesting to me. Although electronic music has a lot of weight on this festival, there is variety of proposals, ranging from the pop-rock to classical music or traditional.

  • Sagrada Familia in night

    Sagrada Familia in night
    The well-known Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is perhaps one of the last great "century's constructions" of a cathedral, and like in the middle-ages the construction lasts for over then a century now (since 1882!!) and it's still not finished... If you want the whole story about the Sagrada, have a look at the official website (link below) but if you're in Barcelona, you must go visit the place, and the best moment for me is during the night! Until midnight, the cathedral lights are on, and the place takes a different face from the day, much more impressive, the shadows and colours of the light gives you the impression of a living beast in the middle of the city: it's alive!! Turn around the whole building and it will change its face, staring at you at every moment with a different face! :) It's a fascinating experience to visit this huge building at night, very different from the day (but it's very impressing at daylight too!) and gives you the opportunity to make cool pictures, of course!
