Top 10 Barcelona Sightseeing List Barcelona

Barcelona’s population is close to 2 million. The city border encompass culture and diverse architectures.  The architecture is one of the most diverse in Europe ranging from its modern to Gothic inspired structures.  I romanticized about walking the narrow lane ways passing Spaniards; I still remember jail walking across busy intersections as I ambitiously tried to see more than 15-20 landmarks in a day.  The memory of the city haunts me like a first love.
