Had a bit of a hungover sleep in then got up to go to Sagrada Familia which we had booked online. This place was massive - and there were still 3 cranes working on it.

This is where the day time tourist hoards are and from what we have read it won't be much different at night. It doesn't look like low season here. The room cost NZ$1200 for 4 nights. It's 3 star, is relatively ...
