fridge magnets from barcelona

The temperature was extremely hot on day one and rather chilly on the last day and PERFECT in between. Folks kept telling me to see Gaudi in Barcelona. And I'm pleased to report that I have seen most of the Gaudi buildings in Barcelona. It's not difficult to get to the places. Casa Batllo and Le Pedrera are on Passeig de GrĂ cia which is a rather long avenue in Barceona and is regarded as one of the most expensive streets in Spain. The avenue has very nice benches and street lights which were designed by Pere Falques i Urpi in 1906. But of course, the most famous buildings are by Gaudi. If you exit the Passeig de Gracia line Casa Battllo will be on your left and Le Pedrera will be to your left on the opposite side of the avenue. Oh yes and the Majestic hotel will also be to your right.
