Tour To Barcelona

Sergey Dolya • 3 minutes read • March 21st, 2016

Gliding through Spain on a high-speed train, making it to Barcelona from Madrid in 3 and a half hours. The train has a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h):

Arriving in Barcelona, almost directly in front of the 

Sagrada Familia, a church that had begun to built by the 

great Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, in 1891.

Stopping at

Tibidabo via 

Barcelona's famous 'Blue Tram', and then by the cable car. The top of Tibidabo is located at an altitude of 1640 feet (500 meters). 
Some of the signs for designated seating onboard the bus:

At the top there is an amusement park, established over 100 years ago. 

La Rambla has been called 'the most beautiful street in the world'. It starts at Placa de Catalunya, where you can feed the pigeons and ends at the sea, near the Columbus Monument.

They used to say that Barcelona stands with its back to the sea. The farther from the sea, the more expensive the real estate. However, after the embankment was rebuilt for the Olympic Games in 1992, the district by the sea has become very prestigious and lively.
