Solar Catalonia. A walk through Barcelona
At Barcelona, the capital of the most economically developed Regions of Spain, I had big plans and hopes. Unfortunately, the time to visit the city was extremely small, and implement them practically failed. The situation was able to save only an expert on Barca, a traveler and a pleasant in person communication - Dmitry Averianov that povodil us through the streets of the city and helped for a short time to form a first impression o the Catalan capital. In this post I will show some details of the city of Barcelona and fotografii made in tot day.
From Lloret to Barcelona got a long but scenic route. Chose the option: bus + train (round trip: 14 evro).
Almost the entire length of the railway between the town of Blanes and Barcelona poohodit Sredizemnogo at the edge of the sea. Beauty!
And it is in Barcelona. Sasha and Dima alexcheban olorin:
Quite unexpectedly for us on the day we got to prazdnovanie City Day (Spanish: La Merce). The main square and all the surrounding ulochki filled with people:
People watched Spanish fun - live construction of the pyramids.
Kastalerov group (members of these actions) throughout the year are trained in these days to show their skills in public.
Another view on the background of the flag of the socialist movement of Catalonia.
Standard territorial flag of Catalonia is composed of four horizontal red stripes on zheltom background. On fotografii left to right: Katalonii flag, the flag of Spain, the flag of Barcelona.
Modern and ancient.
Plates "input" (Spanish entrada)
and "exit" (Spanish salida). At one time they were a reference to the carts - entry / exit.
Buildings in the city is very dense, sometimes obscures the beauty:
A beauty, by the way, here is enough to turn the head.
Although there is.
Thanks to Antonio Gaudi, who worked in the late 19th and early 20th centuries., The city of Barcelona has gained unexpected appearance of strange character:
Expiatory church of the Holy Family or Sagrada Familia (Cat. Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia) - just something unreal. Tried to understand its essence. I do not understand.
From the other side:
Another of the architectural:
Barcelona are a feature of the intersections with beveled corners of houses. In the new areas is particularly pronounced.
A few more pictures:
Back in Lloret de Mar.
This I saw Barcelona - city droll and eccentric architecture. I am sure that this visit to the Catalan capital is not the last.
