During this multi-part series, Shawn and Kevin of Travel by Numbers head to Barcelona, Spain where we check out the Gothic Quarter – featuring a labyrinth of streets which open into popular town squares. We also see Roman ruins darting back to 5,000 BC.
Then we head over to Parc de la Ciutadella, a 70 acre municipal park dating back to the 1880’s and featuring a small lake with rentable row boats, an incredibly beautiful arch and fountain, opposing staircases leading to a couple doing the tango.
In the park proper, we come across a life-size Woolly Mammoth – a popular attraction for tourists to get that Instagrammable shot. Just outside the park, we also visit Arco de Triunfo, another landmark piece of architecture in this city of architectural wonders.
Coming up: More from Barcelona, Monserrat, Baga including Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and the Aquarium. We also visit the south of France and Andorra – high in the mountains. So stay tuned, and thanks for watching!
