Barcelona day 2

overcast 21 °C

Today we hoped aboard the subway to find our way to Barcelona Sants train station. The Barcelona subway was a little confusing at first, but we got to our destination without any trouble. Once there we decide to have a look around this part of the city.

Barcelona has banned bull fighting, and turned the arena into a market place with a roof top area for restaurants and a 360 degree viewing platform.

After a wander around we found our way back to the subway and headed back to La Rambla for some lunch. Its busy area of the city, lots of traffic and people, cafe's and restaurants for your enjoyment.

After lunch we walked around some more and found the first church the Antoni Gaudi designed, June 25th was actually his birthday. We also found a couple of his other designs on our walk.

During our stroll we found a very cool little place called Enrique Tomas, specializing in Iberian Ham. We were watching a guy carve some up, he gave us a small sample. Some of the ham was 299 euros a pound.

But our day was coming to an end, time for some sangria and tapas.
