A WestJetter’s day in Barcelona

WestJetter Jasneil (Neil) recommends booking ahead for a ticket to walk through the Unesco-listed Park Güell. Enjoy lunch at La Polpa, and if you’re there on a Sunday, a free stroll through the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Spend the late afternoon sunbathing and swimming in the Mediterranean Sea.
