Day 1,058: Mediterranean Cruise 2. Barcelona, Spain.

Laetitia led a group from the cruise ship ashore in Barcelona as she had done on a previous cruise.  The focus of both tours was the art and architecture of Antoni Gaudi.  In 1885, Barcelona’s famous architect began building a garden community for his benefactor, Eusabi Güell.  When Güell died, his heirs sold the private estate to Barcelona and the city made it into a public park.  Park Güell, with its unique fanciful architecture and exquisite gardens, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
