One of the primary attractions of Barcelona includes the Torre Bellesguard Castle which was designed by the Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi. The castle was recently opened to the public and I thoroughly enjoyed my tour. Built over the ruins of Marti I l’Huma’s summer palace, the castle is now partially occupied. The castle is inspired largely by Gothic architecture and you can find a bell arch, towers, gargoyles and crenellated battlements of an exemplary nature. The interiors of the castle are colourful and ornate, but are rarely viewed by tourists. My tour lasted a full two hours and I soaked in as much history as I possibly could, hanging onto every syllable uttered by my dear guide! The Torre Bellesguard adds to the cultural and historical heritage of the elusive Barcelona.
