My day began at 9am today and it was going to be a whole day of walking.  I promised a friend that I had met here at the hostel that we would go on a walking tour that we would make up so we armed ourselves with maps and cameras.  I'm glad that Jonathan is from Argentina because we did get lost a couple times.  Street signs here are put in such inconspicuous places!  In the end we always managed to find our way.  I have posted the route that we took and in the future if you come to Barcelona, it would be an interesting way to spend the day.

The route stops off at all the Gaudí buildings, and if you decide you can also go into them though some of the admissions are quite expensive.  They range from 5€ at the Gaudí Museum in Parc Güell to 18.15€ at Casa Batlló.  There is also a stop for very delicious tapas at La Flauta and then the tour continues down to the Mirador de Colom before heading back towards the Palau de la Generalitat and the Catedral in the Gothic Quarter.

Below are the images from each of the stops you will be at and in the gallery at the bottom of the page are some highlights you might see along the way.

1.  Parc Güell this is your starting off point.

2.  Basilica de la Sagrada Família.

3.  Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

4.  Casa Batlló.

5.  La Flauta.  Tapas for lunch.  Always a good idea.

6.  Mercat Boqueria.

7.  Mirador de Colom.

8.  Palau de la Generalitat.

9.  You finish you day walk of Barcelona in the Gothic Quarter by the Catedral.  If you want to go inside, the charge is 6€.
