Day Five -Domingo/Sunday

Today has been another busy day exploring the city. We started the day with a Metro ride to visit the Sagrada Familia. It is one of Gaudi's most famous works in Barcelona. It's a giant Basilica that has been under construction since 1882 (that's not a typing error!) and it's not expected to be completed for another 30 years. Gaudi played an active role in directing the construction of the Sagrada Familia until his death in 1926. He would often request that work be modified and adjusted until it was exactly what he had in mind. However today, because of the nature of the existing designs, his work is partly open to interpretation. It's an amazing building and hopefully I'll be able to visit Barcelona in 30 years time to see it completed!

After visiting the cathedral we jumped back on the Metro and headed back towards Montjuïc Mountain. We caught another cable car up towards the castle. Montjuïc Castle is an imposing castle that has dominated the city since 1640. The views from the castle were fabulous and I took some great photos. I also managed to find a yellow postbox so I could post all the postcards that I have written. I hope people receive them before I get home! 2HB will have to keep checking the letter tray when they get back to school after half term.

After visiting the castle we went back on the Metro to get to the Ramblas. We looked in lots of shops then I made my way back to the accommodation and will shortly be heading out for some dinner. I have lots of homework to do before we are at the university tomorrow so don't want to be back late!
