After my visit to La Paradeta last week I couldn't quite get the place out of my head, and my brother couldn't get the photos I took of the food out of his head. So we took advantage of a beautiful day in Barcelona and travelled the short distance to Sagrada Familia to visit my new favourite restaurant and see some amazing Barcelona sights.

On this visit we ordered grilled monkfish and prawns, fried silver fish and mini squid and a plate full of cockels. The food didn't disappoint one bit. Orlaith tried everything and was especially obsessed with the fried food and the prawns. She polished off the cockels for us too when we couldn't eat any more. It's always good to have a four year old about.
If you're ever in Barcelona you must eat at La Paradeta. I insist.

On mum's last day in Barcelona we visited Park Güell. It's a beautiful park at the top of a large hill designed and lived in by the late Antonio Gaudi. The last time I visited the park a couple of years ago the entry was free, but now they charge to access certain parts of the park.

Because we only had a limited amount of time before we had to take mum to the airport we decided to skip the queue and explore the free areas of the park. While it would have been nice to see the whole thing it was still a great experience walking around the beautiful grounds.

It was really nice having mum here for a few days in Barcelona. We saw some great places and ate some great food and it was fun showing her around one of my favourite cities. See you in London mum! x
