Barcelona, a photo a day

la Ciutat de les Arts i de les Ciències

Short trip to Valencia. Valencia, where they speak valencian, a type of catalan, is a beautiful city south of Barcelona, renowned for it’s food (the paella comes from here, originally), culture, architecture… It also has, in the city’s cathedral, the Holy Grail, or so says the present Pope.

This picture was taken in the very futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, also known by the not so nice acronym of CAC. Amazing architecture.
The round building is a cinema, and the arches on the side are part of a car park.
More about it here.

My blog of note for today is about Minnesota’s 8th largest town, the beautiful Eagan. Seems to be a really nice place to be, and some of it’s inhabitants are quite quirky! Have a look, here.

  5. It looks fantastic and so futuristic! I almost expect the dome to be able to fly. Love the white and pale blue colors too.
