Lisbon to Barcelona - Day 4

Lisbon to Barcelona - Day 4.

Leaving Lisbon for Barcelona with a smooth flight and in business class. Now that's nice way to travel. Here's the wierd thing.... checking baggage would cost $100.00 - while an upgrade to first class costs..... Yep $100.00 AND you get a light meal and all of the drinks you want. Out of 6 seats there were only 3 of us??? (one guy even tried to sneak into the first class area)

We found our hotel in the Gothic Quarter around the corner from the Cathedral of Barcelona. This building was raised in the 13th century but they were using it as a religious center from 343 AD.

The roof is under renovation so I had a chance to go up and get pictures from the metal walkway of the top of Barcelona. This is T shirt weather for us but a lot of the locals are dressed like it's going to snow at any minute.

Spent some time watching the crowds (and gypsies) while drinking sangria and enjoying tapas.

Nice dinner in the hotel restaurant getting ready for a tour of Sagrada Familia. If you are a fan of architecture and/or old churches this is the grand daddy of them all! Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece.
