Barcelona (Catalan IPA: , Spanish IPA: ) is the second largest city in Spain, capital city of Catalonia and the province with the same name. It is located in the comarca of Barcelons, along the Mediterranean coast (4123'N 211'E) between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Bess.

  • La Rambla. The most famous boulevard in Barcelona stretches from the Harbour to La Placa Catalunya running through the like a spine. Come here to see the street performers jump out at unsuspecting tourists, enjoy the flower and pet stalls, or just sit back and watch all of Barcelona walk by. During the day, La Rambla is packed with tourists, at night, the locals come out. If you happen to be here after Barca win, you're in for a treat!
  • Plaça d'Espanya with famouse red colums built for the 1929 Expo and musical (in summer) fountain.
  • The winding streets and hidden squares, fountains and palaces in the Barri Gòtic . Check out the Cathedral of Santa Eulàlia and the Gothic Church of Santa Maria del Pi. Also worth the visit is the Gothic Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, near the Picasso Museum.
  • San Pau del Camp is a romanesque church - one of only a few in Barcelona - with a fine cloister which feels almost Arabic in style. A little island of calm in a very busy city.
  • La Plaça Reial is located next to La Rambla in the and is considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in the world. Also look at the Gaudi streetlights!
Estadi Olímpic Communication Tower, Barcelona
  • The Montjuïc Castle with it's beautiful panorama view over the rest of the city. Take the Harbour cable car to for more splendid views.
  • Tibidabo is located on the mountains of Barcelona and offers a spectacular view of the city (532 m high). This is a place where according some legends the Devil seduced Jesus Christ offering him whole world in exchange for his worship. There is a wonderful church over there. To get there by yourself you need to take metro till Av. Tibidabo Station, then Tramvia Blau, and then Funicular up to the mountain. It reduces the time you spend for getting there. If you have the whole day after leaving the metro you can walk up to the view point.
  • Olympic Port. It has a large number of restaurants, bars and other establishments which have made Barcelona's nightlife even more intense.
  • FC Barcelona. If you're a football freak then you can't miss a visit to Camp Nou, the home ground for Barcelona's biggest and most popular team, and one of Europes greatest footballing 'cathedrals'. FCB are the only major football club in the world that doesn't sell advertising space on it's strip, and this is because the club is about more than just making money. During the Franco era, FCB were the only way that supressed Catalans could vent their anger against his dictatorship, and because of this it became a symbol of Catalan identity. Camp Nou is the biggest stadium in Europe with a capacity of 98,600 people, and it also has shops and a museum of the club's history. Match tickets are relatively cheap (25-35 Euros) and games hardly ever completely sell out, unless it's a match against the hated rivals Real Madrid, or one of the other top teams (currently Valencia or Deportivo la Coruna.) With the quality in the current team, there's always a few goals, and it's nearly always a resounding win for Barca! Stadium tours aren't fantastic, but for a quick recent history of matches played there, consult the backs of the doors in the cubicles - most have alot of graffiti championing their team that played here!
  • Zoo-Barcelona, It is located in Parc de la Ciudadella. Prior to his death, this zoo was famous for its albino gorilla "Snowflake". Today this zoo still has many other features including a science museum inside the zoo.
  • Poble Espanyol. A fake village with replicas of characteristic buildings in Spain (like the Avila walls, the Vall-de-roures town hall, etc). The village hosts the Fondation Fran Daurel, where you can enjoy an interesting Modern Art collection boasting Miró, Picasso, Tapiès and other, mostly Spanish and Catalan, nowaday's artists. The audio tour is very worthwhile here.
  • Palau de la Música Catalana. Modernist design by Lluís Domènech i Montaner is a since 1997, a masterpiece of Catalan's Modernist Architecture.
  • Palau Nacional which hosts the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (Catalan National Museum of Art)
  • Monestir de Pedralbes A beautiful Gothic monastery near the university. There is a picture gallery, a museum which depicts the monastery life, a church and a marvelous chapel covered with medievil frescoes.

Gaudi and Moderniste Barcelona

Gaudi architecture, including the Parc Güell, the still unfinished Sagrada Família and the houses; La Pedrera/Casa Milà and La Casa Batlló.

  • Park Güell. This is on a hill overlooking Barcelona, so expect a relatively steep walk to the top (Lesseps metro station, then follow arrows which are met every 300 m); you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the whole city. The park has two distinct parts, a relatively undeveloped natural area near the top of the hill, and the more famous (and crowded) sculpture park below. The sculpture portion is full of walkways and other structures exhibiting the distinct and colorful style of Gaudi, including the famous terrace. Free entrance.
  • La Pedrera - entrance (Diagonal metro station) costs approximately 8 Euro.
Sagrada Família Crucifix
  • Sagrada Família - To get up to the tower by elevator costs 2 Euro (long queues). Previously, it was possible to go up the spiral stairs, but now they only allow you to get back down. The most impressive thing is to see Sagrada Família at night with lights on, this is the time when you understands why people say that it is built of bones. Entrance costs 9 Euro. Sagrada Família metro station.

The takes you round all the best Modernisme (art nouveau) buildings in Barcelona. The main part of the route can be walked in a couple of hours, providing you don't stray too far from the main routes. The Tourist Offices offer a pack which includes discounted tickets to many attractions such as La Pedrera and Casa Battlo. All can be seen from the outside for free.

Museums

  • Caixa Fòrum', Plaça Espanya. This place hosts great exhibitions (at the time of writing: ). Free entrance.
  • Fundació Antoni Tàpies.This abstract artist has a great Museum close to . It is a good size, has great architecture and good international exhibits. Not to mention the Tapies!
  • Joan Miró Museum This museum is on the Montjuïc accessible by the metro (L3 Paral·lel and then the funicular). It is a great treasure,maybe the best museum about Joan Miró. It always has interesting temporary expositions.

  • L'Aquarium. The second biggest aquaurium of Europe (after that in ). Watch thousands of fishes, penguins and sharks in this interactive sea-life museum. Unlike Genoese Aquarium it has a long glass "tube", where you can walk watching sharks and other fish swimming around. Located at the Port Vell leisure centre, next to the IMAX cinema. Entrance ticket - 15 Euro.
Port Vell (Old Port)
  • The Museum de l'Eròtica de Barcelona on La Rambla, just in front of the market IS a huge tourist trap (for the more open Western cultured tourist). For the more conservative Asian folks, this can be an eye opener. The tour isn't worth it, unless you wish to see (or never seen) old paints of kamasutra. The only interest is the huge phallus in the hallway, makes funny pictures!
  • The Football Museum. This is one of Barcelona's most visited museums near the stadion.
  • Maritime Museum. This museum standing at the harbour depicts the Catalan maritime history of trade, wars and discoveries.
  • Catalan Archaeological Museum. Situated on the Monntjuic, it exhibits archaeological findings from Catalunia from different periods.
  • Catalan Ethnographical Museum. Also situated on the Montjuic, this museum mainly exhibits exponents which were imported by Catalan sailors as they explored the new world.
  • Military Museum In the military fortification on the Montjuic.
  • Museum of Natural History. This museum in the Ciutadella Parc is especially recommended for children. Most interesting is the rainforest project, in which you can observe a living forest from various angles (even from below!).

Agbar Tower, Barcelona (3)
Made by Klaus Dolle - (my Flickr time is over)
View On Black Nueva foto con la camera nueva... Neues Foto mit der neuen Camera... The Torre Agbar, or Agbar Tower, is a 21st century skyscraper at Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and built by Dragados. It opened in June 2005 and it was inaugurated officially by the King of Spain on 16 September 2005. The Torre Agbar is located in the Poblenou neighborhood of Barcelona and is named after its owners, the Agbar Group, a holding company whose interests include the Barcelona water company Aguas de Barcelona. According to Nouvel, the shape of the Torre Agbar was inspired by the mountains of Montserrat that surround Barcelona, and by the shape of a geyser of water rising into the air. Jean Nouvel, in an interview, described it as having a phallic character. As a result of its unusual shape, the building is known by several nicknames, such as el supositori (the suppository), l'obús (the shell) and some more scatological ones.[5] It has 30,000 m² (323,000 ft²) of above-ground office space, 3,210 m² (34,500 ft²) of technical service floors with installations and 8,351 m² (90,000 ft²) of services, including an auditorium. The Agbar Tower measures 144.4 m (473.75 ft) in height[7] and consists of 38 storeys, including four underground levels. Its design combines a number of different architectural concepts, resulting in a striking structure built with reinforced concrete, covered with a facade of glass, and over 4,500 window openings cut out of the structural concrete. The building stands out in Barcelona; it is the third tallest building in Barcelona, only after the Arts Hotel and the Mapfre Tower, both 154 m (505.25 ft). A unique feature of the building is its nocturnal illumination. It has 4,500 LED luminous devices that allow generation of luminous images in the facade. In addition, it has temperature sensors in the outside of the tower that regulate the opening and closing of the glass blinds of the facade of the building, reducing the consumption of energy for air conditioning. It will house the head office of the Aigües de Barcelona Group (Spanish: Aguas de Barcelona, English: Waters of Barcelona). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torre_Agbar

I went down to Glories, where this building is located at around 8 o'clock to get a few photos of it illuminated. Unfortunately, when I got down there it was in total darkness. Waited around for about an hour to see if it would be lit up, but no joy. Started to head back to the Metro and voila at 9 bells - result! Here's a bit more about the tower. It really is something to see: The Torre Agbar (Catalan or Spanish, from Aguas de Barcelona, a water company), or Agbar Tower, is a 21st century skyscraper in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. It opened in June 2005 and it was inaugurated officially by the Kings of Spain on 16 September 2005. The building resembles an enormous missile, but many people see it as a giant dildo or suppository. It has 30 000 m² (323,000 ft²) of above-ground office space, 3210 m² (34,500 ft²) of technical service floors with installations and 8351 m² (90,000 ft²) of services, including an auditorium. The Agbar Tower measures 144.4 meters (466 feet in height) and consists of 38 stories, including 4 underground levels. Its design combines a number of different architectural concepts, resulting in a striking structure built with reinforced concrete, covered with a facade of glass, and over 4,400 window openings cut out of the structural concrete. The building stands out in Barcelona; it is the third tallest building in Barcelona, only after the Arts Hotel and the Mapfre Tower, both 154m. A unique feature of the building is its nocturnal illumination. It has more than 4,000 LED luminous devices that allow generation of luminous images in the facade. In addition, it has temperature sensors in the outside of the tower that regulate the opening and closing of the glass blinds of the facade of the building, reducing the consumption of energy for air conditioning.

Escultura de Rebecca Horn. ---- Rebecca Horn Sculpture Barceloneta in catalan means the little barcelona *Barceloneta is a neighborhood in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona, Catalonia. The neighborhood was constructed during the 18th century for the residents of the Ribera neighborhood who had been displaced by the construction of the Ciudadela of Barcelona. The neighborhood is roughly triangular, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, the Moll d'Espanya of Port Vell and the El Born neighborhood. The neighborhood is serviced by its own stop on the Barcelona metro. Barceloneta is known for its sandy beach (notable for its appearance in Don Quijote de la Mancha, book 2) and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk. Over the past several years the quality of the sand on the beach has become a source of continued controversy. As of February 2008 the World Health Organisation began an inquiry designed to ascertain whether the sand meets WHO beach health and safety guidelines.

Hot off the press, this is one of my favourite images from my photographic trip to Barcelona last weekend. It's taken looking up one of the lightwells to Herzog & de Meuron's extraordinary Forum building. Completed in 2004, sadly the building seemed rather disused and neglected. It's going to take me a while to edit and post process the 1200 photos so it might be a while before I post some more from the trip but I thought I'd post this as a bit of a teaser. From Wikipedia : The Forum Building, designed by the Swiss architects Jaques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron (Herzog & de Meuron), is an architectural landmark in Barcelona. The building is triangular in shape, measuring 180 meters on each side and 25 meters in height, located within the triangle formed by Diagonal Avenue, Rambla de Prim and the Ronda Litoral.

I rather liked this sculptural Solar Array (by Torres & Lapena, Architects) on the waterfront at the Port Forum, Barcelona. It forms part of the largest in Europe and when I get a few minutes it'd be interested to see just how many typical houses this powers. The 10,500 m² solar array on Forum Esplanade has reduced Barcelona's carbon emissions by 440 tonnes a year. The solar array on Forum Esplanade is the city's sustainable landmark, creating a distinctive cityscape along the beach promenade. Barcelona's solar energy regulations have become a model for other municipalities that have adopted the initiative – in some places with even higher ambitions. More than 20 Spanish local authorities have followed Barcelona's good example. Source : sustainablecities.dk

From Wikipedia : Casa Batlló , is a building restored by Antoni Gaudí and Josep Maria Jujol, built in the year 1877 and remodelled in the years 1904–1906; located at 43, Passeig de Gràcia (passeig is Catalan for promenade or avenue), part of the Illa de la Discòrdia in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Catalonia. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), and indeed it does have a visceral, skeletal organic quality. It was originally designed for a middle-class family and situated in a prosperous district of Barcelona.

It turned out to be Antoni last project. On. June 7, 1926 Gaudi was run over by a tram... The Sagrada Familia is still under construction. Making this shot was a dream come true...I wanted to make such a stairshot for a long time. Then, when I visited Barcelona for my work I got the chance. Entering the Sagrada we found out one could only go up the towers by elevator. This was quite a disappointment.
