The photographs are grouped on visits, plus some extra ones which hopefully capture the atmosphere of Barcelona.

Barcelona and the hotel
Thursday 2 November Tour of Barcelona and visit to Gaudi’s House and Parc Guell
Followed by a visit to see the outside of Sagreda Familia, Gaudi’s great unfinished work, due to be completed, a 100 years after his death, in 2027.
Some people went into Sagrada Familiar. Others visited different sites. We went to San Paul, the Art Nouveau Hospital that has now become a UNESCO World Heritage site, it links with humanitarian and medical organisations involved in health and education around the world. There are 9 beautifully period buildings on the site decorated with tiles, sculpture, stain glass etc, including operating theatres, pharmacy, wards and the rather interesting under ground tunnels linking the 9 buildings, which have ‘ghosts’ moving along the corridors with you - unsettling (see photos).
