Our ship is the third one up from the left, it looks dwarfed along side the others.

Its an amazing place, the time disappeared so quick on the day though and I didn't get to see the Sagrada Família cathedral that Gaudí worked on, the kids had enough as well it was a hot day lol. A visit to Barcelona is not complete without seeing it, another place Ill have to go back to one day to finish the sight seeing.

yes you need about 3 days and a ship stop is never long enough but will give you an idea if you wish to return there, rep from me.
That submarine looks like the one Wallace and Gromit built to go to the moon lol!

Cheers for that Daryn, some smashing pictures there, repped. My OH & I are going for a long weekend this month. She's been for 2 days before & I had an afternoon last year before a flight. We're gonna do the guided tour of La Sagrada but if anybody's any suggestions for places to see we'd appreciate it. Off the beaten track, hidden gem kinda places preferably.
Cheers HH.

Well we enjoyed it so much we're going back ner-ner taking my boy as well this time.

We're staying in Sitges (just down the coast from Barcelona) from Monday for a week. Tickets already booked (3rd time for me Smile ) for La Sagrada. Can't wait.
