Barcelona, Spain (8) – Views from High Places

Montjuic Mountain ( Barcelona, Spain (4) – Castell de Montjuic ),  Mount Tibidabo ( Barcelona, Spain (6) – Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor ) and in our hotel room were the three high points in which these photos were taken from.  With a population of 1.6 million in a 100km square space, this city is huge and congested.  With so many multi-family dwellings, it would be hard-pressed to find single family residences with front and back yards.

We look towards the northwest point of the city and go clock-wise

Barcelona Sants, the main train station is conveniently located next to our hotel.  The station provides services locally and regionally.  We enjoyed watching the people coming and going, using the transport system as their daily routine.

 

 

 

 

Looking south towards Mount Montjuic, you can see the Tower at the Olympic Site
