about Madrid, Spain:
Madrid is a modern, world-class,
but also historic city - the capital of Spain - located almost centrally
in the heart of the country. A contrast of old and new, Madrid is
a beautiful and vibrant city with great architectural interest. You
might find the drive into the city a bit boring with its suburbs of concrete
apartment blocks, but once in the centre, you will enjoy the traditional
streets, with medieval buildings and some narrow and very atmospheric alleys,
containing shops and bars.
The old quarter has a concentration
of magnificent attractions including the Prado Museum with its great art
collection, as well as the Reina Sofia and Thysssen-Bornemisza galleries,
displaying Picasso and many other European and American masters.
The people of Madrid are
among the great attractions of the city. Commonly known as the "Madrileños"
they can be seen relaxing in the traditional cafes and cars, at the Sunday
El Rastro flea market, and also late into the night at the many bars and
nightclubs of Madrid.
For shopping, Madrid is a
shopper's paradise, including the classy and expensive shops of the Salamanca
Quarter. For those on a more modest budget, the El Rastro flea market
is highly recommended. There is a huge range of hotels and hostals
to choose from in Madrid, from sheer luxury to cheap
hotels Madrid - or book an apartment for that home-from-home experience
in Spain's capital.

about Barcelona, Spain:
Visiting Barcelona, with
limited time? There is so much to see in this fascinating city, which would
normally take at least a week, but it is possible to see the major highlights
in a couple of days too.
I would highly recommend
The Gaudí masterpieces:
1. Temple de la Sagrada
Familia - or Temple of the Sacred Family - Gaudí's unfinished
masterpiece and a must-see in Barcelona. A fascinating combination of the
original architects' vision (Martorell and De Villar), combined with the
magic of Gaudí. Unfortunately Gaudí passed away before the
work was complete. Construction still continues on this amazing building
and your entry fee helps towards this.
2. Casa Milà (La
Pedrera) - in the L'Eixample neighbourhood - Antoni Gaudí was
commissioned by the industrialist, Pere Milà, to construct a building
on the boundary of Barcelona and Gràcia, as both a family residence
and also to be leased as separate dwellings. Owing to the way its facade
appears to be carved out of rock, the Casa Milà was nicknamed "La
Pedrera", which means stone quarry. Amazing interior architecture, as well
as the famous and fascinating chimneys on the rooftop.
3. Casa Battló
in the L'Eixample neighbourhood - a fairytale building. Originally Gaudí
was commissioned to demolish the building, and build from scratch, but
he convinced the owner to let him completely redesign the existing building.
This was in the days when the Paseo de Gracia was undergoing a "keep up
with the Jones'" battle - everyone trying to outdo each other with their
architecture. Gaudí did an incredible job using tiles and scales
on the exterior of the building, wonderful interior design, plus again
the famous chimneys on the roof top.
4. Parque Güell (Güell
Park) - ideal for a restful stroll after your busy days in Barcelona.
Originally planned to be a residential area, it is now a beautiful park
with many wonderful Gaudí creations in tilework and stone. The views
over Barcelona to the sea are simply beautiful....
