Day Trippin'

North of Barcelona, the church on the peak of Mount Tibidabo towers down onto the whole city. It’s at an impressive height and decorated by a Rio de Janeiro-like figure of Jesus. A small theme park also overlooks Barcelona, with rides that feel so high you get vertigo just watching!

The Dali Museum of Figueras is a must-see. Probably the largest museum dedicated to the Catalonian artist, it houses all his famous work including the Monroe room. There are buses and trains which take a couple of hours.

The Virgin Montserrat is the patron saint of Catalonia who is buried in the "monasterio benedictino”. It is a monastery, in-set into the rock of the mountain named after her. This spiritual and historical place is a wonder, as its geographical nature contributes to its beauty.
