Camp Nou just before kickoff between Barcelona and Real Madrid

After an exhausting but incredible trip to Barcelona to see the 2011 Spanish Super Cup at Camp Nou, courtesy of ESPN Deportes, I wanted to be sure to share some of the photos from my trip so you can see some of the beautiful sights.

I’ll never forget the hospitality and the passion that the residents of Barcelona showed to their region and to their team. And most of all, I’ll always remember the incredible second leg of the final that was scintillating up until the last minute.

Congratulations to Barcelona, winners of the 2011 Spanish Super Cup. And thanks to ESPN Deportes for their hospitality (of course, you can watch La Liga all season long on ESPN Deportes).

Here are the rest of my photo collection to share with you:
