So Why Visit Sintra?
When it comes to picking destinations, I often select a location because I have been given positive recommendations or I have been inspired by images online or on the TV. In some cases this has left me underwhelmed. This was not true in the case of Sintra.
I had window shopped Sintra on Pinterest. I initially thought Sintra was a only castle, in particular a castle with a really cool well that you could walk down. It turns out that Sintra is a town in the region of Greater Lisboa, Portugal. I also discovered that the few hours I had there weren't nearly enough.
There are so many sights and wonderful things to do in Barcelona. In my opinion, enjoying Gaudi's architecture is essential. Gaudi's imagination goes beyond words, so I thought a photo blog fitting for such a creative mind.
It is almost impossible to visit Barcelona without coming across his inspiration. You could almost say that Gaudi is quintessentially Barcelona with his work being featured in apartment buildings, parks, houses and of course most famously, the cathedral. Being someone who dreams quite vividly, his work made me wonder how Gaudi's imagination worked. Did he dream his creations in waking hours or in his sleep? This I am unsure of, all I know is that his architecture is quite wondrous and certainly a place in which you can become lost for a few hours as you walk the city and take the wonder in.
Whilst I didn't get to visit all of the Gaudi sites in Barcelona, here are three popular sites that you should include in your Barcelona intinerary. But for now you can join the adventure below.
