That's right, we had the misfortune of visiting a seriously Catholic city in Spain...on a Sunday. And while yes, there were some gelato cafes and shops and restaurants open, many things were closed. Including one sight I really longed to see--La Boqueria.
We also didn't get the chance to go inside La Sagrada Familia, another small disappointment. That said, however, I really enjoyed my short time in Barcelona and would absolutely go back.

Once dinner and the show were over, our guide took us to The Magic Fountain of Montjuic at the Olympic Village. We all watched it for a while, but to be quite honest I wasn't completely impressed...more so because I worked at Disney for so long and I'm used to stuff like that ;)

A final note: we had called a cab to pick us up at the hotel. We arrived outside five minutes before the cab should have been there--but he was already there waiting, had been waiting, and had his meter running. I was honestly to tired and hungover to argue with him, but this added a good 8 Euro to a cab ride that would already run us 20 Euro...so in the future, my suggestion would be to be ready early and call the cab when you're ready to go. You will surely wait a few minutes but it will save you money in the long run.
