The Port of Barcelona, SpainClick thumbnail to view full-size
Barcelona is one of my favorite city for travel destination in Spain. This was my second visit in the month of October 2011.
We have 3 weeks vacation in Costa Dorada, L' Ampolla. The first week we spent our time in the beaches, sun bathing, swimming with 22 to 24 degrees seawater and in the swimmingpool.
The second week, we went two days and one night in Valencia, the third week with two days and overnight stay in Barcelona.
A city trip is ideal in the months of September and October when it is not too warm compared in Summer. In October we did had a warm sunny weather with a temperature of 30 to 33 degrees. Other advantage is not too many tourist at this low period and the hotels or appartments are cheaper than in peak Summer season. We rented a four star appartment near Gaudi's Park Güell which i would recommend when travelling with groups, 4 persons or more than staying in hotel which is more expensive.
There are lots of beautiful interesting places to visit in Barcelona of which i did a hub about Gaudi's work and the Famous Magic Fountain of Montjuic.
