Barcelona highlights

Oh, Barcelona is a city of inspiration and movement. There are many places to see and if your feet feel comfortable walking for hours and hours, don't hesitate to cover Barcelona's streets all by foot. At first I felt confused about all those tourist attractions I have read about, but in a day or two it all cleared up. The location of your accommodation is very important, you can arrange your sightseeing almost by not using the public transportation, mostly if you live right at the corner of the MAC BA museum (as we did) at 5 minutes from the trajectory of the La Rambla, Place Catalunya, Passieg de Garcia. 
9 days in Barcelona are relatively enough to have a more or less relaxed stay, but with tense schedule in specific days because of the location. Must-sees are : La Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila/La Pedreira and the roof-top view, The Camp Nou for a football match, and the 4 most important museums for a cultural "enlargement": the Museu Nacional D`Art de Catalunya, the Museu D`Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Museu Picasso and Fundacio Juan Miro, using the ArtTicket BNC. I strongly recommend visiting the Museu Nacional D`Art de Catalunya. Even for non-connaiseurs, this is a touristic location worth seeing from inside and outside as well. Stay there till it gets darker and on't miss up the Magic Fountains show. A walk around Barcelonetta and some hours spend on the beach is simply mandatory. If you succeed to rend a bike, that will save up your feet from pains. Offering a half a day spend in the Park Guell is more than enough if you have a tense holiday. 
Barcelona in pictures seems a bit different, maybe pictures do not show the city architecture's "grandeur" but for sure my pictures will generate a burning desire to buy plane tickets and fly directly to destination <Barcelona> :)
