We landed at 9 am at Barcelona International Airport. Immigration was so quick, it was almost too good to be true - about 10 seconds per person compared to about 5 minutes in US. Soon we were out in Barcelona Sun, a much appreciated change from the Seattle rain. It was in low 20s (celsius, we are in Europe remember) so very pleasant.Eager to begin …
Arrived safely in the capital of Catalonia this morning after a nail biter for the previous 24 hours. Barcelona airport had been closed for two days due to the cloud of volcanic ash that drifted down from Iceland. No evidence of it on the ground but at the 20 to 30,000 foot level, it interferes with air travel.

... located in the old part of the city and surround by Barri Gothic buildings.
Towards the end of the promenade, we stopped for some last minute tapas and a refreshing beverage. Then it was time to catch the shuttle bus back to the ship.
Once we got back to ship, it was time to get ready to retire for the evening. Mum went out of deck to watch the city disappear in the distance.
Urban parks account for 10% of the cities acreage.
... fallen in love with a 19 year old DJ and had proceeded to cyber stalk him all the way to Barcelona. And he was now very upset his DJ lover wasn't "returning his tweets". The crazy man aside, the night was excellent! We ended up in a group of around 12 people sitting outside in the garden enjoying the evening sun with a big meal and an acoustic guitar!

The almost satirical work of The Dream and Lie of Franco shows Picasso's condemnation of Franco's dictatorship over Spain and Picasso said he would never enter Spain again so long as Franco was in charge. Over 4,000 of Picasso's 22,000 works of art are housed here in Barcelona. Formerly five 13th century Catalan palaces, the building itself is a stunning work of art.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ayre Hotel Caspe Barcelona
Really nice hotel
Excellent hotel. Enjoyed our stay. Helpful staff, nice rooms and good location.
Awful. Badly located, nowhere near Plaza de Catalunya, it took me a lot longer than 15 minutes to walk, and the area has no character or bars/restaurants at all. The staff were rude (one lovely gentleman on reception to the point of offensive) and not at all willing to help with anything. A supposed 4 star hotel, they watched a young girl struggle down stairs with 3 suitcases without even offering to help!
The first impressions of the hotel was very modern, trendy and clean and was a great price for what our conformation said which included breakfast.
Where to start... in our 3 week trip to Spain, Hotel Fiesta Caspe stands out as the worst accomodation.
Wonderful modern hotel
stayed at fiesta caspe may 2004. Found it to be very modern and very clean. the staff were pleasant and helpful. The only down point was that in brochure it mentioned coffee making facilities in room..there were not any!!! however there are lots of coffee houses/ patisseries nearby..lovely. Well placed hotel for sight seeing and shopping. would stay here again.
