We then took a stroll down to the ports, which was pretty touristy. (Kind of like our Pier 39) included is a picture of Sami giving this area a thumbs down. This was a quick glimpse, but we were able to sit right on the beach and enjoy a drink while staring out over the Mediterranean Sea.
Next, we ventured into the neighborhood referred to as the "El Gotic". This was one of my favorite neighborhoods as the dark, winding, narrow alley ways take you back in time
From here we walked to "La Rambla", which is a promenade leading to one of the most vibrant sights in the city, their "Mercat Boqueria". This open-air market puts our Ferry Building to shame. Here there is an amazing array of meats, cheeses, nuts, spices, fruits, vegetables, and chocolate. This is any foodies heaven on earth!
A walk back to our hotel past Gaudi's Casa Batllo ended our night, but noy before another craving for tapas was satisfies back in La Gracía.
