After our Gaudi biking adventure we ventured into St. Josep Mercado where the have juice for 1 euro in flavors like kiwi-coconut, blackberry-banana, and papaya-raspberry. We went back for so many juices while we were in Barcelona! We also had colorful empanadas full of mushrooms, cheese, and spinach. To just go ahead and say it-we at a lot in Barcelona!

Besides the Gaudi tour we wandered around a lot. They have beautifully curated shops in the Gothic quarter full of locally made treasures. The streets are narrow with roll up doors that open to so much visual delight and for me temptation (I love pretty thing, I'm sorry). The Barcelona cathedral is also in the Gothic quarter and has spires dripping in the gothic style reaching toward the sky.

La Rambla is a walking road encompassed with shops on either side and littered with stalls selling everything, including the pepper pictured below :) It was always packed with people.
Sorry this one was very random and non-sequential but that was what was great about our time in Barcelona. We didn't have many set plans and did whatever we were feeling in the moment and went on long walks to nowhere.
Next though we went for a great hike at Montserrat!
