Barcelona, Spain 2015.
Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia and Spain's second largest city, located directly on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain,
has a rich history, having been under Roman, then Frank law before declaring its independence. In 1992, Barcelona gained international recognition by
hosting the Olympic games which brought a massive upturn in its tourism industry.
A wooden pedestrian bridge - the Rambla de Mar - connects Barcelona's inner city via the Rambla with the Moll d'Espanya, where we find the Maremàgnum,
a complex with shops, cinemas, discos, bars and restaurants.

The Gothic Quarter is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. Despite several changes undergone in the 19th and early 20th century, many of the buildings date from Medieval times,
some from as far back as the Roman settlement of Barcelona. Remains of the squared Roman Wall can be seen.
Somehow I do like this picture.. very romantic!
