Yesterday was the anniversary of the birth of
the great Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
It is in his honor that we travel to Barcelona.
We'll pay tribute to him at
The Barcelona Pavilion.
A few years ago my brother and I went to Barcelona and had a wonderful time. One late afternoon we strolled by The Barcelona Pavilion and found it to be quite stunning. You will too.
There is plenty of Gaudi to take in as well.
Then there are the markets and restaurants!
Eric and I had special meals at:
Jean Luc Figuera
Eric marveling at mercado.
Then a ham of a different stripe at
Foundacio Juan Miro.
El Palau de la Musica Catalana
Gran Teatre del Liceu
are always great.
While we did not make a pilgrimage to El Bulli or out to the Salvador Dali museum,
we did relax on the beaches of Sitges.
It was a great little day trip.
Oh, and another thing... do you like chocolate?!
Do not go to Barcelona and miss stopping in at
"the Christian Dior of Chocolate."
