Might be there for 40 hours in April.

Other than having a beautiful horizon, what's there?

Familia Sagrada, arguably the most magnificent church in the world.


If you like that sort of thing.

It's not the principle. It's the money.

I agree with Palerider which in itself is a rarity. And as well as being an extraordinary architectural achievement La Sagrada Familia is also the world's longest running construction site. If your 40 hours allows it will be worth taking in a footy match as Barcelona still do play some great stuff and the atmosphere in the stadium is usually good. Lunch somewhere along Las Ramblas followed by a trip to the top of Montjuic Park on the cable car (Parallel nearest metro station, which is on Las Ramblas) and a walk around checking out the skyline is worthwhile. And back to football, if memorabilia, and a little bit of Spanish Civil War history, is your thing the stadium tour is worth taking time out for. Efficient, and cheap, transport system too. Enjoy.

I demand answers. And I demand them now. Why is there only one monopolies commission ?

My Missus does. If anyone lives up to the stereotype of Asians/Orientals and photographs, it's her.

She took over 10,000 on a two week trip to Iceland, England and France last year

Just back from there a few weeks ago as I work there a fair bit.

Saw Barca v Inter. Spectacular ! and I had a great seat in the second tier up on the Halfway line.

Go to Sagrada Familia as was mentioned earlier and have some tapas around Las Ramblas. Also the beach is a nice walk and in April it should be reasonably warm. A great city to just walk around and soak in the atmosphere.
