The Barcelona Skyline Montjuic Review

Favorite thing: Because of it's location on the Mediterranean, the skyline of Barcelona is certainly quite unique. While it is a large city, it houses just a small number of skyscrapers (mostly hotels) allowing other buildings (like the Sagrada Familia) to stand out in the skyline. With Tibidabo or the Mediterranean as the backdrop, you can only start to imagine what a wonderful view this must be. The best places to soak in this splendid view is either from Montjuïc or from the hills of Tibidabo.

Fondest memory: When this picture was taken, Liz and I had just arrived in Barcelona earlier that day and had decided to explorer Montju?c. Fortunately, we made it to this lookout point before the sunset had begun. The view was spectacular and it was the first sign that this trip was going to be great.

Sunrise at Platja Sant Sebastià - Barcelona

Sunrise at Platja Sant Sebastià

Mediterranean Sunrise Barceloneta Review

Favorite thing: One of Barcelona's loveliest features is it's location on the astoundingly beautiful Mediterranean Sea. The beaches of Barcelona are not grand but they are very nice. I strongly recommend you stop by and breath in the fresh sea air.

Fondest memory: On our very last day in Barcelona, Liz and I experienced our first Mediterranean sunset at the Barcelona beach (Platja Sant Sebastià). We got up real early and walked down to the beach (about a 30-40 minute walk from hour hotel). Once we were there we sat on the beach for about 20 more minutes before the sun peeked over the clouds. It was quite a site and so beautiful. It was a great way to end our trip.
