Barcelona or no ?

Jump to last reply

Have been struggling with this topic for a couple of weeks now and can't decide, so thought i would ask for advice/opinions of this knowledgeable group...

My family of 4 (husband and 17 and 14 yr old sons) is traveling to Spain March 28 - April 5 (NJ Spring Break and yes, Spain's Semana Santa). We are flying in and out of Madrid (got an unbelievable airfare -- the way this trip started..;). The constants are that we want to devote a few (2-3) days to Madrid and at some point transfer south to Malaga as we own a timeshare there which is available to us for the entire week (hence any nights there = no accommodation expense.,) and spend a few days sightseeing around there. Thinking of renting a car to go around all of the prettiness in that neck of the woods (Alhambra, Ronda, Marbella, and as many whitewashed villages as will hold the interest of my gang..).
Here's what I need help with deciding: should we or should we not include Barcelona in this trip. I would love the show the boys Barcelona (my husband and I have previously done a Barcelona-Seville-Madrid trip), even if it's for a day (Camp Nou, Sagrada Familia, Park Guell - a day on the HOHO..), but know that doing that will completely change the pace of the trip....

FROM:
Madrid 3 days
Train to Cordoba - sightsee around Cordoba - rent a car
Drive to Malaga
Malaga (and surrounding areas above) 4 days

TO:
Madrid 3/28-3/30
4PM 3/30 flight getting to BCN at 5:15
Full day in BCN
8PM 3/31 - Overnight train to Granada
8AM 4/1 Granada - Alhambra, once done:
Rent car in Granada - drive to Malaga
3 1/2 days "exploring whitewashed villages"
4/5 PM - train back to Madrid to get on our 6PM flight home

Can I ask for your Yay or Nay Opinions?? (Many thanks in advance!!!)
