Barcelona – a good place to take photos? - mikecphoto

… absolutely!!!


..not only will you find some of the most amazing architecture in the world, you’ll also benefit from an excellent cuisine, great clubs and a beach to rest those weary feet after spending much time exploring and/or dancing.


There are many great spots for photos in Barcelona, but why not start at Park Güell, Barcelona cityscape from Park Güell where you can take in the city and its many colours whilst surrounded by Guadi’s serpent bench, which is the longest bench in the world and decorated by wonderful Mosaics. This is a great place to see it all, local buildings, colourful architecture, and in the distance … the Mediterranean sea.

After taking in the Barcelona’s cityscape, why don’t you head down to the Sagrada Família, a huge cathedral that has been in construction since 1182, and is hopefully going to be completed by 2026, 100 years after Guadi’s death. You can pay to go inside, and I’m sure you could get some killer shots, but only if you have the perseverance for the queue, which bends around the building.


If you want a bit more ‘none’ flamboyant architecture and more holiday/ lifestyle shots, you could head down to La Rambla and on to the local markets. Here you will get many wonderful colours, and will find yourself very moist at the mouth, as you stare in wonder at some of the delicious treats on offer.

Around La Rambla you can also find the Gothic Quarter and the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia for some great architecture shots.


You could then head to the port and the beach, where the impressive Christopher Columbus statue resides, as well as the currently in construction Port Vell and of course the beach… Just don’t put your camera on the sand…


And for those that like to take photos of food, making it look so tasty your viewers tummy’s start to grumble, then there are endless amounts of restaurants selling Tapas, Paella and many other tasty Spanish dishes, which as well as allowing you to take great photos, also give your pallet a wonderful treat.


So Barcelona as a photo trip…? I would highly recommend. But while there, take time to relax on the beach, party the night away, eat your heart out and enjoy many a few tasty Sangrias… cheers
