Barcelona – Goodbye Spain

Time flies and we are now in Barcelona, our last stop in Spain before heading up to Provence in France.

We stayed close to La Boqueria Market, a fresh market dated from 1200 that is a touristic place on itself. The freshest seafood, organic wine, fruits from everywhere in the world, bakeries, spices shops, meat, handmade sausages, jamon and other specialties that come from and through the Mediterranean every day. A great place to buy some fresh tropical juices in the morning before starting our daily pilgrimages.

But it is not only the markets that are colorful in Barcelona: the architecture here is amazing and the mix of the medieval walls from the Gothic Quarter with the modernist buildings from Gaudi, makes Barcelona a fascinating place to visit.

This is a culture that reminds me a lot of Brazil and the way I grew up, people that are so friendly that made us feel home, a culture that will leave some great memories.
