Date of visit: May 11, 2012

It took about three hours to get to Barcelona from Perpignan. I left my luggage at the hotel and went sightseeing in Barcelona.

The hotel is like this, a bit luxurious.

Well, this is the third time to visit Barcelona, and when I first visited in 2004, I stayed four nights and visited every corner of the city.

We’ll take the subway.

We went this way.

Picasso Museum

I still love Picasso in Barcelona. In addition, it was prohibited to take photos inside the museum, but only the outside buildings (but only the entrance and courtyard) could be photographed.

After viewing the art, we took a short walk around the museum.

Here is what I found when I took such a walk. I didn’t know there was such a thing as a rent-a-scooter!

But I don’t know how or where to park. (laughs) By the way, I think driving in this city is quite difficult.

The next step is to take the subway to here.

Sagrada Familia

The sun is strong! The triumph of backlighting »! I took a picture as if to say « Victory!

I can get the other side beautifully with no problem. Well, it’s a lovely blue sky.

And the next one is a bit troublesome in terms of location, so we took a taxi from in front of Sagrada Familia to here.

Park Güell

It’s still the same crowd.

Long time no see, Tokage-san (I visited 8 years ago.)

Then take the metro back to Passeig de Gracia.

Casa Mila

Casa Batlló

I snapped a few photos. I didn’t go inside because I thought it was enough since I went in 8 years ago.

I went back to the hotel again after a somewhat rushed sightseeing.

After relaxing in our room for a bit again, we went back to the main street to Passeig de Gracia for dinner.
