Last month, I posted a blog on the activities that tourists can do in Barcelona, and spend a day at Montserrat was one of those I mentioned. Montserrat is a rocky mountain where you can find a Benedictine Monastery named Santa Maria de Montserrat. There are different reasons why a lot of people visit this place. Some goes here to see the statue of the Black Madonna, some wants to watch the performance of the Montserrat boys choir as they sang Gregorian chants, some goes for a hike to the peak of the mountain while others just want to roam or see the view of Barcelona. But whatever your reason is, you will surely enjoy the time that you will spend here.
Last Sunday night we went out to watch a Filipino movie entitled Barcelona A Love Untold. It was a typical romantic drama film (I must admit, I like it), shot on one of my favorite cities, Barcelona. While watching, I couldn’t help myself from reminiscing the times when we were there last year, thus the reason why I am writing this now. We spent four wonderful days there and visited some of the famous landmarks. So, if you also fell in love with the city and planning to visit anytime soon, I have listed here some of the activities we have done, as well as those we hope we did, which for me is a must.
Segovia is one of the famous historic cities in Spain. I came to know this place when I tried to research on the activities to do when in Madrid; a day tour on this city showed up, and it caught my interest. Initially, I wanted to avail that day tour, which aside from Segovia I will also get to see Avila (another city), but something happened, that after a number of online booking attempts, it failed to push through. Anyway, Tep and I just decided to do the trip on our own.
