We got up early in the morning to go see the famous cathedral called La Sagrada Familia. As we were so early near the cathedral there was a coffee shop and we paid around $40 for two terrible coffees and two awful hot chocolates (my brother could not drink his) and three ordinary croissants!
The cathedral however was spectacular! It was so beautiful there was lots of fine detail stained-glass and amazing rooms. We went up the Nativity Tower. My mum is scared of heights and it was very tall she got very nervous. You went up to the tower with an elevator but on the way down you had to go through a very narrow and steep stair way.
We caught the ‘hop on, hop off’ bus to Park Guell. My mum and dad went to a small supermarket to buy some lunch, we got a baguette, ham, cheese and orange juice to have for lunch. Then we went to the Park Guell, it was really beautiful. At the park we went to the Gaudi house, the man who designed La Sagrada Familia, museum. We saw lots of his things and learned a lot about his art and him. We bought a painting at the park. The man selling them was so good we bought two. They had lots of depth and meaning. After the park we went on the hop on hop off bus and went all around on the west side of the city. It was very long as it took 2 1/2 hours. By the hop on hop off bus you saw lots of beautiful monuments and spectacular scenery.
