Went on another walking tour of BCN - an English correcting one! The Man had the camera.....
I don't know which church this is, though I suspect it is Santa Maria del Pi
In the Plaça del Pi - it says the plaça of the unknown militia. Don't know what that is referring to.
This is definitely inside Santa Maria del Pi
And this too, I'd never been in the church before, so it was pretty interesting, as churches go.
Cleaning up some graffiti...
Plaça de I-have-no-idea, but I could take you there, and they shot a scene from Vicky-Christina Barcelona there. Flowers were falling off the tree onto us while we were there, it was lovely.
The courtyard of Casa l'Adriarca, now the archives of something or other, just by the Cathedral, lovely and quiet.
Their mailbox....complete with swallows and a turtle
The courtyard or a museum near the Cathedral...don't remember the name, it's late and the computer is running out of juice...it is lovely and quiet and has sculpture and a pretty little cafe, which I've never eaten in, but which our guide said was nice.
A unicorn gargoyle on the cathedral
The ceiling in part of the Palace of the Kings of Catalonia and Aragon
A doorway designed by Subiras, who is also doing the passion facade at Sagrada Familia
Columns from the original Roman forum
The base of another column, long gone.
The entrance to a building just off St Jaume, part of the city hall of BCN...look closely at the arch over the door, it is very cleverly done.
A sculpture by Antoni Llena that is of the Castallers, and also cava...very Catalan.
I like it, though it doesn't stand out well in the photo. Every one of those curves was made by cutting the metal at an angle and then resticking it together again to make the curve. Then smoothing it out. Think about that for a bit.
Look closely at those columns. Someone was feeling very bold.
Street art on someone's balcony.
and on the Palau de Mùsica Catalana
There it is again, I like the Palau a lot.
There you have it, the orfeó català, the choir that funded the building's construction, and the Catalan shield.
Hope you enjoyed it, I did.
