Our next stop was Park Guëll on Carmel Hill, which is one of those places you either love it or hate it. I liked it, in fact we both did and the view over the city wasn't bad either… "Barcelona such a beautiful horizon”.
We spent time catching up and also planning what we wanted to see in the next few days, we decided that on Sunday we would head off around the coast to Sitges, a small town just outside Barcelona.
Just after eleven (PM, I might add) we headed off for dinner. The place we went to, oozed atmosphere with years and years of smoke, both from a fireplace and cigarettes. It was still quite empty and I thought to myself see I'm right everybody has been and gone but by the time we ordered our first drinks people started to flock in. We ordered our main course just before midnight and the restaurant was just starting to fill up. "Midnight" dinner over with just after 1 AM, we went to a very modern large bar very popular by the looks of things and with Madonna entertaining us through the speakers at that moment time was forgotten till the next morning.
Next it was time for lunch and with no time to spare we headed off to the Palau National (“National Palace”). Luckily you can get to the top by escalators and with our delicate heads this was perfect. What a view from the top, the place itself is a Spanish Renaissance building, spectacular in its self but so was the view. We decided to get the metro around to La Rambla and take a walk down to the beach for a drink, how lucky is this city: great weather, great food and right on the beach. It was early evening by now but the place was humming so we found a table again outside, ordered a carafe of white wine and watched the world go by.
