We loved it. I just asked Tom what he wants to say, and he said, "There were more balconies than I've ever seen in any other city." So true, which means it was reminiscent of New Orleans.
And what's not to love about Gaudi? I really did feel like I was Alice in Wonderland while we were climbing down the Nativity Tower at Sagrada Familia. We did not go into Casa Battlo or Casa Mila (buy tix in advance or wait on lines) but we enjoyed them from the exterior.
On our last day, we went to the Picasso museum. No pics allowed inside, but this was taken in the courtyard.
Then we went off to Montjuic for the Miro museum. We liked that as well, and the audio guides for both museums were well worth the few extra Euros.
Here's the view from the terrace at the Miro museum, and one of the sculptures outside.
