Mini-Moon {Day Three}

Preferring to grab breakfast on the go, we popped into Forn De Pa Bertran for some exquisite pastries!

Minimoon Day Three

Stepping inside was like being wrapped up in a big hug, the store was petite, rammed full of baked goods and due to everything being baked on site, the place smelt divine!

We chose two, to be shared of course and we demolished our deliciously soft pastries that were showered in dusted sugar in a matter of minutes and they really, REALLY tasted like more!

Before long our destination was in sight, we were en route to Sagrada Família, designed by our main man – Antoni Gaudí

That’s right, we were going on another tour!

This time accompanied by our very own audio packs with the most awesome throw back 90’s earphones you ever did see, think thin metal, think foam – they were impressive

The first stone was laid in 1882 and the last will be placed in 2026, so says the current architect of the project Jordi Fauli….Gaudí was a mad man for the intricate details, so this was never going to be an overnight job!

The windows were my favourite, the sun was streaming in through the glass casting light in every direction possible, bathing the inside of the Cathedral in beautiful colours, it was stunning to see

^ absolutely no jiggery pokery has been done to this photo, this is exactly what it looked like in person – amazing right?

^ The Cathedrals alter is so large, it makes the organ look small…the organ is NOT small!

You can go up to the top, but Himself and I couldn’t get tickets for that as it books up months in advance. But to be honest, after the previous nights crazy low roof top walls, I wasn’t exactly clamouring at the idea of being up the top of a building that is only 65% finished in the first place – so just as well really!

We thoroughly enjoyed the wander and had quite the root through the gift shop before heading back towards our hotel for a bit of sunbathing and a splash in the pool

That evening we had tickets to Palau de la Música Catalana to see Ópera y Flamenco, a fusion show of melodic lyrical singing, Spanish tradition and flamenco dancing

We arrived with plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere and a couple of drinks!

The palace is pretty gorgeous and gives you a real sense of occasion once you’re in the foyer.

For the first few minutes of being in the theatre, anyone with a camera was looking up, capturing the beauty of the architecture

Himself and I, however, got distracted by a mans head located in the top corner of the proscenium arch – for anyone else who has watched Parks and Recreation, is this, or is this not Ron Swanson?!!!

Out of respect to any fellow performer, I would never take a photo during a show, it’s rude and can be horrifically off putting…but in my opinion, when it comes to the bows, all bets are off!

Minimoon Day Three

The cast were incredibly talented. The first man (with his hair in a bun) is an outstanding drummer who kept everyone going for the whole show, the blonde woman, an opera singer, was completely hilarious while the brunette in the white dress is an utterly breathtaking flamenco dancer. If you’re in Barcelona GO SEE THEM! (it’s a long running show)

Minimoon Day Three

Hand-in-hand, we wandered through the cobbled streets towards our hotel, stopping off for a brief night cap and a visit to my favourite door

Minimoon Day Three

After that, we clicked our heels and clapped our hands the whole way home, trying to out do each other on who was the best flamenco dancer…Himself never really stood a chance, but boy did he give it socks!

adéu per ara!
