Barcelona Part 2

After eating breakfast at the hotel, we explored Barcelona with a tour guide from 1100 to 1930.
First, we went to downtown Barcelona to see all the local stores and some of Picasso's work in Barcelona. We then went to Park Güell, Sagrada familia, and Barcelona beach.
Unlike Madrid, there were a lot more cathedrals in Barcelona. I thought that Barcelona had more history in general as well due to the catalans wanting independence.

- Park Güell is one of the most impressive public parks in the world. The park is located in Barcelona and was designed by famous architect Antonio Gaudi.

- Gaudi's original plan was to construct a residential park that can hold up to sixty single- family residences from 1900 to 1914. However, the project was unsuccessful and the park shortly became a city property in 1923. Even though, it is still not completed, the park itself is portrayed as one of Gaudi's most colorful and amazing works.

- Sagrada Familia was dedicated and consecrated as a basilica by the Holy Father Benedict XVI and became a holy place open for worship on 7 November 2010.
-The church has 4,500 square metres where 8000 people can come in and worship.

- Five generations have already witnessed the temple’s rise in Barcelona. Construction is still on-going today and could be finished in the first third of the 21st century.
