Barcelona is well-known for the architectural marvels by Gaudì, but I thought I’d share some photos of older buildings that make the city a multi-layered historical wonder. Of course, we went without a guidebook so I can’t tell you what all of these places are called, so if you’re familiar with them, feel free to share!
This church looked to be at least a few hundred years old. It reminded me of Spanish colonial architecture we saw in Mexico a couple years ago.
This was a curious sight: What appears to be an old cathedral or monastery is missing an arched passageway that must have been there once upon a time.
Carvings in Latin that used to be inside are now exposed to the street.
There are still many public fountains like this one throughout the old city.
The steeple of the church of Santa Maria del Mar rises above this narrow street.
With my sister, Laura.
We liked this square lined with palm trees.
