    Oleg, I've just been looking at your impressive updates from the past year. The Sagrada Familia looks a lot different now than when I was there, which was 52 years ago.

      Of course! The more of us come the more money we give and the better Cathedral becomes. Thank you for visiting and rating!

      There is so much to see there and it all takes time because of the crowds. It would be great to return.

    Oleg, you've added lots of fine new tips to your Barcelona page just in the past few weeks. Great photos of the architecture and art works.

      Thank you for visiting and rating! I trying to concentrate on, let me say, “unloved by mass tourists objects”.

    Love the old churches. Good hotel choice!

      I can see that ... but churches built later can be very interesting, too!

      I agree, but Romanesque and Gothic churches I like more than Baroque. I like West European Middle Ages and can do nothing with that.

    Oleg, Thanks for the Barcelona hotel advice, will check out the hotel, it is located in a good position to walk to tourist highlights.

    I came back on your Barcelona reviews and continued my visit. Fine photos. I want to buy a reflex numerical apparatus, what would you recommend (not too heavy, only 1 objective)?

    Thorough and informative tips on this new Barcelona page!
    I spent a lot of time in Barcelona in the 1960s, but haven't been back for many years.

      Many thanks for visiting and rating. Since my first visit in August this year I say to myself I must come back.
