The first thing I read on my news feed this morning was the breaking news of the horrifying terrorist attack in Barcelona. Like most of the world, I am sickened and disgusted by this senseless act of terrorism. My original plan for Travel Photo Thursday had nothing to do Barcelona photos. However, I’ve decided to share some of my photos taken when I visited this vibrant and beautiful city in December 2015, and again in February 2016. Welcome to week 340 of Travel Photo Thursday. Most of my Barcelona shots are on a hard drive packed in a box making its way from Seoul to Nova Scotia. Do enjoy the few that I discovered on my hard drive.

A short subway ride from Barcelona’s downtown core you’ll find this lovely white sand beach with its pungent ocean smells and people in the mood for fun. You can read all about Barceloneta in an earlier post.
Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf
I discovered this ornate monument on my final day in the city. It was one of those warm February days with a hint of spring in the air bringing people out to enjoy the day and the winter warmth in the park and the street cafes. I wrote about the Arc de Triomf here.
You can see many beautiful Barcelona photos in that post.
I never tired of gazing at and photographing the delightful doors, windows, and balconies in Barcelona. This balcony photo was taken while having lunch in a lovely sidewalk cafe.
I was in the old section of the city every day that I was in Barcelona and passed the city’s beautiful cathedral often. I love the spires.
El Món Neix en Cada Besada (The World Begins With Every Kiss)
Discovering this beautiful mural also happened on my final day in the city. This is a “must visit” when you are in Barcelona. You can read the mural’s story and how to get there in this post.
That’s a glimpse of my Barcelona photos. Stay strong Barcelona, we love you!
