Barcelona by night

While the harbour looks great in the night, the valuable coastline next to the city is occupied by concrete, cranes and industry. The first two photos show both freight and passenger docks. The city itself is quite photogenic, thanks to bright lighting and organically grown buildings. The Plaça d’Espanya is one of Barcelona’s traffic nodes in the north-west. The cheapest connection to the airport (bus line 46) departs here. La Rambla is the main promenade, connecting Plaça Catalunya to the coast at Port Vell.

Barcelona university

Barcelona’s university building in the city centre is quite impressive. The entrance hall reminds me of a gothic church, up the stairs it resemble a classic art gallery. Behind the main building lies a small park, which is crowded by cats. My impression: it must be inspiring to work there!
