All you must know about La Sagrada Familia before buying your ticket
Barcelona is on top of world tourism. The charming Spanish city has beaten the record of 15,8 million tourists in 2018, and, in Europe, is only behind London and Paris. More than 75% of these visitors are from out of Spain, mostly from France, Germany, Italy, the UK, and the United States.
What makes Barcelona so attractive is a wide variety of attractions: history, culture, arts, gastronomy, beaches and even mountains, all in one single place with a well-connected network of public transportation. Amongst so many interesting attractions, there is one big favorite and the most-crowded to visit: Basilica La Sagrada Familia.
Inspiring places for calm, adventure and spiritual evolution
The world is full of inspiring places. Some take them as an adventure experience. Others go seeking for self-discovery, healing or even enlightenment. The fact is that traveling teaches us valuable lessons. Which spiritual destinations can make you both relax and challenge your adventurous self? We selected 3 magical places to start with: Sedona desert in the United States; the enigmatic Stonehenge in the United Kingdom; and Camino de Santiago (Way of Saint James) that goes along Spain, France, and Portugal to end in Galicia. Enjoy!
A Brazilian couple, Julio Bedin and Rogério Rabitto, tells how it felt in their first trip to Barcelona and Berlin
Our eurotrip was like a sandwich with two ‘layers’ of Barcelona and Berlin in the middle. The season was excellent, late May early June, all in full swing, but without the ordinary crowd of tourists in the Catalan and German capitals in that period. Important to say that it is impossible to make this “report” without comparisons with our homeland, Brazil.
