Barcelona, a photo a day

Grandi Navi Veloci

Grandi Navi Veloci, big fast boats to Italy. Barcelona is an important ferry hub, boats to the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Mallorca, Minorca), to Italy (Genoa, Livorno, Sardegna, Civitavecchia, near Rome). Many cruise-ships stop here as well. And they are in fact really affordable, almost (but not quite) cheap. I will hopefully do the trip to Italy quite soon to eate la pizza, will show you the pictures, promised!
This picture was taken on Montjuic Hill, from Barcelona Castle. The guy at the canon is not me, and nobody shot anything or anyone from here for a long time. Ciao!

  2. Apart from shooting photos of course… I love that Barcelona is also built onto a hill. Gives the great city a homely feel.

    Brattcat, the tower is actually another nice feature of the area, it supports a cable car going from Barcelona Castle to the Port area. 9 euros, or 16/17 USD one way…

  8. While wintering in Mazatlán, México the past few years, I was able to watch the cruise ships dock and then leave later in the day. Awesome, aren't they? I was always amazed at how those behemoths could turn on a dime! Great view and good shot.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. I know the image is shocking, but the commentary explains its legitimacy on the post.
