A great favourite with the Cruises and a great favourite with us.
Having done the organised tour from Lloret three
times, and the bullfight, I didn't get too excited when we first went
there on a Cruise. I should have done! The organised trips from Costa
Brava Resorts did not give us enough time in La Rambla (a LONG Avenue
with a pedestrianised centre full of stalls, cafes and human statues
which seem to proliferate each time we go there, stretching from the
Columbus Statue to Catalunya Square, which is also impressive). I don't
remember seeing a lot of Gaudi architecture on the early trips (Gaudi
is like Marmite, love it or hate it. I love Gaudi, hate Marmite!). We
did the organised City tours from the Cruises (which are better because
you don't have the long journey to the City) and the open top bus tours
(more than one, it's a big City) and loved them. The last couple of
cruises we've just done La Rambla (for the bustle and the shopping)
and the Cathedral (for the sheer Majesty).
Not the Capital of Spain but wow, can Madrid be better?

We didn't get off the Black Watch in 2016 (are
we getting lazy?) but I took what I think is rather a nice photo from
