|Some of the most interesting - in my opinion - residential architecture in Barcelona. Including a detail on the famed Gaudi's Casa Mila. Speaking of Gaudi, next thing I'm going to put up is a set of photographs from Sagrada Familia, the architect's lifetime achievement, so get ready :)|
|Exploring Barcelona I mostly walked the streets. That's what I usually do. Although I've decided to put together a set of interior shots to give you an idea of how interesting this city can be from the inside. So there it goes: two or three churches, a couple of cafes (including one in Barcelonetta with letters screaming over the bar: "No hablamos Ingles pero hacemos unas bombas cojonudas" - they don't speak English and something I can't really understand), an apartment building we broke into, a museum, the Cream fixed gear bike shop and eventually - the train station on our way out. Obviously I have some interior pictures of Sagrada Familia but I want to devote a whole separate post to that.|
|Walking (my feet off!) in Barcelona gives little opportunity to look up, as there are so many interesting things to look at in every other direction. Although I stopped for a moment a couple of times to explore the tops of tiny courtyards, narrow labyrinth-like streets of the Gothic District, or beautiful architecture of some of the Barcelona's boulevards, like Avinguda Diagonal, about ten-kilometer long artery cutting the city in half.|
Also, a little sneak peek of the La Boqueria - the old food market of downtown BCN.
|A very random selection of Barcelona's storefront shots. Some are closed, some show a little bit of interior, or contrast between what's inside and the shops surrounding. A few very nice art nouveau pharmacies, that still operate in their original shops. Really something to look at.|
