Barcelona Day 4: Waterfront on a sunny winter day


Barcelona is one of those unique cities with a mix of old and new, city and nature.

I love that you can spend an entire day exploring the centuries old gothic quarter and then laze on a beach with modern sculptures and hotels the next.

I also love the idea of enjoying the beach in winter!

During our stay in Barcelona, we were fortunate to get a beautiful sunny day on the beach. It wasn’t exactly warm enough to swim in the ocean, but it was pleasant enough to stroll the boardwalk and enjoy a nice meal.

Here are some shots of our day at the waterfront.

Narrow old streets leading to the ocean


Christopher Columbus statue at the beginning of the waterfront… he still thinks he landed in India
