La Barceloneta Beach

Have visited Barcelona many years ago, So excited to explore the city. Spain has a history ties to my country. Barcelona is known for its exceptional soccer and the brilliant architectures. It is also famous for its modern art museums, parks, golden shoreline, beautiful beaches and tasty foods. Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya- a historical region of Spain and densely populated second after Madrid.

We watched the live Flamenco Dance show.  They say, beginning of the 20th century during the arrival of many Andalusians, live flamenco shows blossomed all across Barcelona. Dancers clicking there castanets with different fingers produces the rhythmic sound. Barcelona is considered the third capital of flamenco show in Spain. While you are in Barcelona, have a dip at La Barceloneta the golden sand beach also the closes to the city.

We traveled to  Mount Montserrat .It is a multi-peaked mountain range near Barcelona in Catalonia. It is part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range.
A spectacularly beautiful Benedictine monk mountain retreat, about one hour North West from Barcelona by train. Not only is Montserrat Monastery
of significant religious importance but also the natural beauty surrounding the monastery is simply breathtaking. If you enjoy walking there are some interesting walks through the mountains where you will experience magnificent views of some of the most unusual rock formations in the whole of Catalonia. You can take a funicular or a cable railroad to the top of the mountain and from there, you can take in the amazing views of the Catalonian countryside. The history of Mount Montserrat is fascinating and started in 880 when a small group of shepherd children saw a bright light from the sky over Montserrat mountains. In the same moment the children heard angels singing and the music filled their hearts with a radiant joy.
Today,  You can walk to the Holy Grotto and see first hand where these events took place.

Have you watched a bull fight on television or live? These days, Bullfighting is illegal in most countries but remains legal in most areas of Spain and Portugal as well as in some Hispanic American countries and some parts of southern France.

Madrid the Capital of Spain is one of Europe’s most amazing cities, exciting and dynamic metropolis with plenty of things to do and lots of places to enjoy. Most of the time visitors usually have a limited amount of time when visiting a city. Sometimes it is difficult to choose from range of things  Madrid has to offer and Madrid is famous for. Also Madrid’s Puerta del Sol is probably the city’s most famous spot. It is known for being the place where people gather on December 31 to celebrate the New Year.. The square is also the point where all of Spain’s six major roads starts. While most tourists have no idea that the Puerta del Sol is Spain’s symbolic “Kilometer 0.” In the middle of the square, a small plaque shows the exact point where Spanish roads begins – don’t miss it!.
