I've just come back from an excellent vacation in Barcelona.
The city is so relaxed and beautiful and inviting
you can't help but have a good time.
These photos were all taken at the Monastery of Pedralbes
a Gothic monastery founded by King James II of Aragon
for his wife Elisenda de Montcada in 1326
It is well preserved and cool and tranquil, as you'd expect
and full of treasures and religious objects.
My personal favorites were the simple tools and baskets
evidence of the daily lives of the nuns
There is a central garden with orange trees and herbs
and a small fish pond in the middle
It was very sunny when we were there so the photos are bright
Barcelona! Can't wait to go back.
