I went to Barcelona in late November 2002, in a bit of a spur of the moment idea and have to admit if is a fabulous place. Unfortunately I didn't see much of it as I was only there for two days but I did try to pack in as many museums and attractions as possible. I had a good hotel on the Ramblas which is in the heart of the city from which to explore.
A highlight had to be the zoo, with its abundance of Monkeys, and especially a baby Orangutan which tried to communicate to me through the glass and showing me a stone she had in her hand which she then attempted to unscrew the screws holding the window frame in place, very cleaver.
Below you can see some of the photographs that I took, just click on one to make it bigger.
