BCN diary day3: from the mountain to the sea. 

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my Barcelona diary.

This morning we took the underground to Museum d’art, where also the magic fountain is. We walked up the stairs, to get a beautiful view of the city, it was really nice, and so was the magic fountain aswel! Although we didn’t see it at night. 

  

After viewing the city from above, we went to  the park close by, we walked further up the mountain, where you have yet again wonderful views! 

  
   
At this point we were high in the mountains, and we found one other BCN tourist attraction. And so, we went from the top of the rock to Barceloneta, also known as the beach! 

  
Once in Barceloneta it was around lunchtime, we ate at one of those beach lunchspots, and i had a tuna salad and ‘detox’ smoothie. It was pretty good, but as usual at beach restaurants, overpriced and noisy though. 

  
After lunch we stumbled over the boulevard  at the beach. It was extremely hot and i was dying to take a swim, but the beach was crazy crouwded and laying in the hot sand between sweaty tourists didn’t look very atractive, though it would have been nice to take a swim or have one beach day, it’s a lot more relaxed!  So we adventually went back to the centure of the city. We also came across a park with an amazing fountain. 

  
We ate at Parellada we had a really delicous dinner, just really good quality food and a very lovely place to sit. Also when you finished the first dish, it takes about less then 5minutes before they already bring you your next dish. For this place definetely make a reservation, good thing is; you can make it at the day itself. We went here at 19:00, but the place was closed and would open at 20:30, so we made a reservation for 20:30. Quite late to have dinner, but once you’re in the city you’ll notice that everybody eat’s around 10pm, and with the hot weather this isn’t always too bad. 

After dinner we headed back to our hotel, to enjoy a bit of wifi and fall asleep. 
That was all for today, untill next time!
