One thing that I absolutely adored about Barcelona was the architecture! It is so amazing and so different than I thought. It is Influenced by middle Eastern styles and was so beautiful. Here we are in front of the national museum of Art. The building itself was incredible. Quinn is in front of the Olympic Stadium, which is one of the largest in the world. My favorite structure was the house done by Gaudi that was covered in multicolored tiles and actually shimmered. The tiles on the roof looked like dragon scales, and the stained glass windows were the most gorgeous colors. It was breathtaking. Downtown Barcelona was so fun just to walk around, I could walk the streets for hours just taking it all in. It seemed that everywhere you looked was another cool piece of art.
