Barcelona Part 3
Our next adventures in Barcelona start in the Mercat del Born - the old public market hall. This was a market, but then it went unused for a number of years. When they went to do some renovations they found the ruins of a medieval city. Our tour guide highly recommended it and it was free and pretty interesting.
Barcelona had a lot of these can and cannot do signs all over. Usually do not walk on the grass, do not let puppy in the grass, stay off the grass, this is a park, but why would you go on the grass?? Things like that. This was my favorite though. No drinking the water, no swimming, no fishing, but you can get electrocuted. These next photos are from the park where the zoo is
Just after we got to this fountain it slowly started to turn on.
We walked out to this giant flea market which was fun. Multiple stories, tons of people, but it wasn't that bad walking through spying.
The next few are la Sagrada Familia - I had seen pictures of this before, but I was not expecting it to be so amazing. Really detailed and colorful, but hard to get a good photo of at the time we were there
We didn't actually go inside, just spied outside. Then went to find another park to just laze around in for a bit which was harder than we thought. A lot of the ones on the map were just big dirt areas, or on the hills. Barcelona has a lot of hills and a lot of benches to sit on, but the ones on the hills are not levelled or anything, they are just put on the sidewalk so you end up sliding down to one end.
