After our walk at the Cathedral of Barcelona, we went to the busy shopping street near Hard Rock Cafe. There is one of their large departmental store, El Corte Inglés. You can have your last minute shopping here like we did before flying home. This day dinner we made our reservation at Hard Rock Cafe, despite having made reservations for our dinner we still have to wait for around 30 minutes before we were ushered in.
A day in Barcelona City and wanted to squeeze in some of the popular attractions to visit but couldn't decide where to go? Here are some of the options to spend your day. We visited the famous Park Guell by Antoni Gaudi in the morning, after that to the Gothic Quarter and immerse ourselves in the ancient building around that area. Can have a shopping spree at the Calle Portal de L'Angel which is near to the Las Rambla.
After we touchdown at Barcelona International airport, we took a cab to Hotel Actual to have a short rest before heading off to the must go attraction in Barcelona, Sagrada Familia.
How can we end our Spain and Portugal trip without Barcelona? We book our flight with one of the budget airline in Spain, Vueling Airline to head back to Barcelona, from Lisbon.
We were planning to reach the airport earlier to have breakfast on the day we were leaving for Lisbon. However, we did not have our breakfast at the airport. Instead, we took the time to walk around the airport. Although Seville airport is small, it is equipped with the necessary services that all passengers require, eg. free wifi, postal service, ATM, etc
Seville is the capital of Andalucia filled with the cultural atmosphere where it is also the financial centre of Spain. Therefore, we spent our day in Seville soaking into the atmosphere and enjoy this lovely city. We will be covering the city center and some of the not to be miss attraction, Seville Cathedral, Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza (Bull fighting ring) and the Metropol Parasol.
There are various ways to commute around Seville city, Eg. Metro, Bus, Tram or bike rental. As the tram station is near to our apartment, we took the tram for our day tour in Seville city. Thus, this post will be purely covering on the Trams in Seville.
Based on our friend's recommendation, we had our lunch at La Flamenka Córdoba. We were definitely not disappointed, the atmosphere, food, and service are great.
Wanted to explore out of the Seville? We went on a short one day trip to the nearby city Córdoba, which is only a 45 minutes train ride away. The one and only thing that lured us there is Mosque - Cathedral of Córdoba. Nonetheless, there are other beautiful attractions in Cordoba and one of it is the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos.
Prior our trip to Seville, we have seen many beautiful photos taken by other tourists at the Plaza de España. Hence, we set aside one afternoon to visit this place and see the spectacular architecture ourselves.
