Riding around Barcelona on a bus

By the time we got to Barcelona we were worn out. We decided to get on a tour bus and ride around seeing the sights. After comparing the two tour bus companies we saw in the main plaza we decided to go with Barcelona Bus.  The two companies were practically the same, but the Barcelona Bus covered more areas.  Barcelona Bus had two different routes.  One route towards Mt. Tibidabo and one towards the Olympics and everything in between. 

Barcelona has some of the greatest architecture in the world! Here are a few pictures of what we saw.

Plaza Catalunya - This plaza seemed like a great starting point.

The next two are picture I took while we were in the Olympic Village area.  The first one is this outdoor artwork called Pergolas on Icaria Avenue.  Created by the architects Carme Pinós and Enric Miralles. I wondered what this was when we passed by.  It was large and lengthy.  It took a awhile for me to find out. Apparently this sculpture/artwork was suppose to be much bigger.  They were not allowed to plant trees for sewage reasons in this area, so they built what were meant to be big metal trees shading the street.  Although that wasn't acheived (maybe that is what drove them to divorce) I must say it was a very memorable thing to see.  So much so I came home and researched it!

La Seu Cathedral in Barcelona's Gothic area.  These pictures do not do justice to the size of this cathedral.  We wanted to go in but the line was an hour long and we had seen at least two dozen churches in Europe.
