On our first full day in Barcelona, we visited Casa Battlo. Casa Battlo is located on Passeig de Gracia, in the heart of Barcelona. One of Gaudi’s apartments, this museum is open to tourists, but also houses some offices and some people still live there! We walked from our hotel in El Born to the apartment, and it was a nice 15-20 minute walk with lots of sights along the way.

For my visit to Casa Battlo, I wore a striped maxi dress from Winners (similar striped maxi dress here), a pair of espadrilles from Nine West,  sunglasses by Dolce & Gabbana, and a blue leather bag from London (similar blue bag here).

One of the highlights of visiting Madrid was Retiro Park. If you’re looking for free things to do in Madrid, the park is your best bet! You can watch people in rowboats in the water, or visit art installations at the stunning Crystal Palace, or Palacio de Cristal.

On our visit to the Crystal Palace, I wore a wrap dress from Primark (similar dress here), leather gladiator sandals from Athens (similar style here), and a blue leather bag from London (similar style here).

The Crystal Palace, or Palacio de Cristal is a large structure, that used to be used to exhibit flora and fauna from the Phillipines. The structure is stunning and very impressive.

Park Guell in Barcelona is a must-see. We visited the park twice, and I wanted to share my tips for the best way to visit Gaudi’s park.
