After a long flight from Tucson through Houston and New Jersey, we arrived in Barcelona, Spain. We were very pleased with our apartment that we rented through Vacation Rentals By Owner (VRBO). The only drawback of the apartment was the stair climb (4th floor) with our luggage.
After settling into the apartment, we headed out to see our first day of planned attractions. We visited the Cathedral, the City Museum, the Ramblas, the Boqueria Market and the Christopher Columbus monument before heading back to our apartment located on a quiet street in the Borne District of Old Town.
