Barcelona visit


The city of Barcelona is a “must see” visit if you go to Europe.  Architecture, arts, food, markets, street life… it has everything!  So our recent 4 day visit, while short, yielded many pictures which I will try to reduce to a few albums.  This one is on the city itself and it’s many picturesque venues.
