Barcelona and Cuenca Spain, Dec 2017

Barcelona

Back to Spain we flew! Barcelona was gorgeously unreal, creatively genius, inspirational.

We loved seeing Antoni Gaudi’s many works of art and architecture throughout the city, with the icing on the cake being the Sagrada Familia, which is still under construction with the end date forecasted for 2026 (one hundred years after his death).

We spent 4 hours on 2 trains to get from Barcelona to Cuenca. This town is famous for its ‘hanging houses’.  It reminded me of Ronda, Spain.

With it’s steep cobblestone streets, hanging houses, beautiful views of limestone cliffs and the town’s unique home made liquor, this is a perfect place to relax just an hour from Madrid. Salud!
