We flew to Spain primarily to climb, but I thought I’d show my teenage son Barcelona’s sights, including “Park Güell“, which houses the Gaudi museum and numerous of his buildings and  sculptures. Since our plane left Barcelona in the morning, we needed to drie back from Siurana a day before our flight to return our rental car. We chose a hotel within walking distance of Park Güell for our last night in town and spent the day walking around this fantastic park.

  1. I stopped traveling internationally before 9/11 and Barcelona is the only place I long to see. Gaudi is my favorite artist/genius. LOL…sometimes I think it is because my art stuff will never be as crazy as his. I mosaiced my fireplace last year.

  2. I’m curious why you don’t travel internationally? I’ve been to Europe twice in the last few years, visiting Spain, France, Italy, Germany, etc. and am flying to Australia this March. Barcelona is well worth seeing and in my earlier posts I described lodging, car rental and other details. We had no problems - the US airline security and TSA were the worst.

  3. Sibylle,

    Barcelona truly feels like another world, doesn’t it? I remember how attracted we were to it after just a two day visit back in 2002. So much art there is interwoven with life…fantastic.

    Thanks for giving us the tour of your climbs in the area as well as a look into the city.

    All good wishes!!

  4. This brings back great memories of something really special to be seen in the Barcelona area. It was a highlight of my travels in that region. Gaudi was just so creative and so outrageous in his times–even today, actually–that it is a true visual representation of “thinking out of the box”!

  6. COOL! Gosh I miss Europe! Neat to see those chairs, they’re not as bizarre as I would have thought!

  7. I’m so impressed with all the climbing you do. You must be in fantastic condition! I’ve enjoyed following your adventures while you were away–and look forward to seeing you back on our very own rockpile here in the Rockies!
