Mirador de l’Alcalde

First time in Barcelona? Yes. First time in Spain? Yes. First time in Europe? Yes.

I was a virgin like that.

The first thing I visited was Mirador de l’Alcalde. The thing about viewpoints is, apart from presenting a summary of how a place is like, it shapes your perspective of it. Therefore, I think visiting viewpoints should be done at the start of the trip, as it lays the foundation of your travel experience.

Blimey! It rained quite heavily!

A little shop selling snacks, drinks and postcards, among other things. Expensive!
