I spend the last week of my 8 weeks winter holidays with my friends in Barcelona. It was the second time I was in Spain and the first time I was in Barcelona. The weather was easy. Very windy, not really warmer than here in Switzerland, but it was not raining at all. The city is pretty amazing. Really nice architecture and the whole city is clearly arranged – you turn 4 times around the corner and you are at the same place again.

Most of the time we were walking around the city and visited a lot of tourist spots, like the famous cathedral Sagrada Familia, the beautiful park Güell or FC Barcelona’s Home Camp Nou. But Barcelona is a lot more than all those tourist places. The atmosphere is great and the art and culture is impressive. And for people from countries without beach and sea, the beach is always an amazing place to be.
