Like I promised, I am slowly (and finally!) showing you the photos of my last trips.
In February, after going to Portugal, I continued to Spain, in particular the South of Spain, with its magical and gorgeous cities I immediately fell in love with.
After passing the border between Portugal and Spain (and changing the time on our watches), we proceeded to Seville, in Andalucia.
The gardens of the Cathedral and especially the narrow streets of the Barrio de Santa Cruz totally captivated me.
The next day we crossed another border and arrived in Gibraltar. I would have never thought this tiny piece of land would have been so beautiful and different.
Being part of the UK, there are plenty of British shops, food, and traditions, and even sneaky monkeys that try to steal your food. We also saw clearly Africa from the other side!
After our day in Gibraltar, the following day we traveled to Granada, I believe my favorite city of the trip. In so many moments I felt I was not in Spain at all, but in another exotic country far away. The Alhambra, the Old Town and especially the Alhambra by night and the Albayzin were incredibly magical.
After a long transfer from Granada, with stop in Peñíscola, we arrived to Valencia, where we visited the Aquarium and the Old Town, and tried of course some horchata.
The next morning we started the last portion of our tour: the artistic and multicultural Barcelona. If you don’t like tourists, this is the wrong place for you, but for me this city always gives me amazing memories.
After the classic visit to Park Guell, Plaza Catalunya and The Ramblas, and admiring the colored light that comes through the windows of Sagrada Familia, we went for some shopping, tapas and flamenco, and ended up our trip with the view of the city from Las Arenas. Definitely to repeat!
