Barcelona, Spain

Sergey Dolya • 4 minutes read • March 21st, 2016
A bird's eye-view of 

Barcelona, including the amusement

 parks and the seaside.
The highest hill overhanging Barcelona is 

Tibidabo, which is

 famous for the temple of 

Sagrat Cor

, built after the Paris Sacre Coeur Basilica in Montmartre:

Local legends say that the devil tempted Jesus on this hill by offering him the whole world in exchange for his worship.
You can climb the temple first on the elevator and then up the spiral staircase in the tower:

A panorama from the top: 

At the very top stands a statue of Jesus with his arms spread wide:

The amusement park was built over 100 years ago and is considered one of the oldest in Europe. Its main attractions are the Ferris Wheel, carousel and the aircraft:

The Park Guell, designed by Antonio Gaudi:

Entrance to the park is guarded by two guard 'booths' with glazed roofs:

Bizarre rock columns and arches in Barcelona:

the famous long writhing bench:

The sign used by Spanish taxi drivers. When lit, customers can catch a ride:


The square in front of the Columbus Monument:


The Aquarium Barcelona. The Aquarium is home to squid and moon-fish: 

The front of the aquarium is paved with bricks, forming interesting mounds:
Catalan citizens exhausted by the sun relax on the lawns:

Through the palm trees, carefully planted on the quay, Columbus re-appears:

La Rambla - the main pedestrian street of Barcelona:


The other end of La Rambla is the area of Catalonia, known for its chess players and pigeons. Reminiscent of the city Santiago, Chile:

You can buy a bag of seeds for one and a half Euros to feed the pigeons:
