Barcelona: Centric Cafe and the Magic Fountain

Walking downtown

After graduation, we headed back to the apartment to shower and nap before heading back out into town. Never could and will get used to 35 degree heat, so better to be back in the airconditioned apartment during the hottest part!

We went for a walk along La Rambla, having dinner at Cèntric Raval – feasting on cocktails and tapas! It’s only about 10 minutes away from the busy street, but as you leave Las Ramblas and head toward the café you enter a more residential area and get away a bit from the rest of the tourists.

After our delicious dinner we headed to the Magic Fountain. We were lucky to catch the show just on time! The fountain was a display of lights and movement set to music. I couldn’t get over how crowded it was!
