We went independently ashore and had a wonderful time walking along the waterfront and climbing the hills to the Cathedral which offered a spectacular view. There was some street entertainment and it was great fun.
This is lovely little town that offered a great deal of walking about to see the various sights. The one thing that I found very puzzling about the towns in southern France that we visited was the ever present amounts of a lot of dog waste. They are so clean in every other way but as a multiple dog owner, I was amazed at how no one seems to pick up after their dogs.
This was my absolute hands-down favorite port on this cruise. Despite the fact that it was raining, we took off up The Rambla and ended up at Gaudi's Cathedral. This was a considerable walk and we got to see a lot of the architecture on the way. On the way back we stopped at a tapas bar and enjoyed Galician octopus and then charged into that wonderful huge market that offered every fresh and smoked Spanish food product under the sun. On the way back to the ship, the sun came out and so did a large number of people which really made the place come alive.
