This was the first visit in my life to Spain.

Rather depressingly, I'd thought I'd try to give myself a bit of background history to the country by reading the story of the Spanish Civil War. 5 days of wandering around the streets of this lovely city made me realise that there's another side to it all. The place is full of colour and life, with a real buzz and excitement, the food is excellent, and some of the "Must-See" sights are really extraordinary.

I really loved it, although you couldn't miss a feeling of rebellion and barely suppressed strife which are still there in 2012.
