Hola everyone! This week, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos from summer in Barcelona – this beautiful door I spotted in the posh neighborhood Sarrià.
Sarrià is tucked up higher in the hills of Barcelona, backing right up against the enormous Parc de la Collserola. It used to be a rural village, but today it’s the fanciest neighborhood in the city. There aren’t very many big attractions in the Sarrià-San Gervasi neighborhood so I haven’t spent much time there.
Far away and above the city center, it’s a quiet escape from the bustling traffic that rushes through my neighborhood, the Eixample. It’s full of cute squares and more green spaces and parks than I’ve seen in any other part of Barcelona. I’ve got to get up there more!
This special door was hiding away on a peaceful residential street full of palatial houses. (None of those words describe the places you can usually find me). I was up there for a special vintage market – BCN en Las Alturas. It was a very posh flea market, with the “bargain” buys clocking in around €50!
I may not have come away with any new vintage treasures, but I did have a nice relaxing afternoon seeing a completely new side of Barcelona.
(P.S. Apologies for being a bit slow on the blogging front lately. I’ve been sick for about the past month and am finally starting to feel like myself again. Hopefully I’ll be back on the blog horse soon!)
