La Sagrada Familia
The next day was reserved for Gaudi's magnum opus , La Sagrada Familia and stunning masterpeice that is Park Guell. La Sagrada Familia feels like walking into Gaudi's dream, its awe inspiring beauty and the sheer scale of Gaudi's vision will move you to tears (I kid you not!). While spectacular views from the top at Park Guell, bold colors and impressive marriage of nature and design makes this one the most surreal creation of Gaudi. He is called "Gods Architect" after all.
I just had until 11 am on my third day in Barcelona. After an early morning stroll on the La Barcelonata beach, I packed my bags. Although I was all set to leave for Girona, I was in no mood to say "Chao" to this beautiful city, yet.

Barcelona totally stood out for me. After all the gothic-baroque architecture and the blacks and greys, you can only enjoy the excitement and joy of watching Antoni Gaudi’s defining architecture. Most of Barcelona’s character comes from Gaudi’s works, which can only be described, as passionate, colorful and creative genius. Everything else came to us as complimentary- be it the tiny, crowded bars, the football fans, the Saturday night enthusiasts or the talented artists spread across the street. Barcelona was a dream.
