Pretty Barcelona

Chic & Country - - Meet Me In... -

The name Barcelona can be di­vided in three Cata­lan words mean­ing bar (yes the same you are think­ing of) cel (sky) and ona (wave) so es­sen­tially what you will find in this vi­brant city is a blue sky, won­der­ful food and drink and the sea. But there is so much more. This is a city where the beauty is def­i­nitely in the de­tail. You'll dis­cover a thou­sand quirky façades be­ing a prime ex­am­ple), jaw drop­ping ar­chi­tec­ture and se­cret places that will send your In­sta­gram snap­ping in­stinct into over­drive. You can go from the amaz­ing gar­dens de­signed by ge­nious An­toni Gaudi (whose work sym­bol­ises the colour­ful and imag­i­na­tive spirit of Barcelona) to the tran­quil gar­dens or the wild

moun­tains (where you'll also find the 'muntanya russa' a very scary roller coaster). The Spring is ar­guably the best time to visit as the mild tem­per­a­tures and sunny skies are just per­fect for strolling. Make sure you try lo­cal del­i­ca­cies such as the tra­di­tional sugar coated pas­tries: the Easter 'Bun­y­ols de cuaresma'
