The last stop we made where I took photos in Barcelona was the Fundació Joan Miró. We arrived near the end of the day and the museum was closing soon. We were in a hurry, so these aren't the best shots, but I am still posting them because I liked the artwork!

Our next adventure took us to the top of Mount Tibadabo. There is a beautiful old church up there called the Sagrat Cor in which we quickly took refuge as a huge thunderstorm rolled in.
