Barcelona, a photo a day

Sunday Bridges numero seize (nr 16)

This is a pedestrian passage in the Port Vell, the old port, crossing the Marina to reach the Maremagnum shoppig mall area. Part of this passage is a turning bridge, to allow all the leisure yachts to leave or enter the port.

This is for Louis La Vache’s Sunday Bridges. Click right HERE to see more.

I still have very little energy (even turning around in bed makes me tired), so I can’t browse your sensational blogs at the moment, and I really miss it! Will be back asap, on a really slow burner.

  1. We stayed in this area on our visit to Barcelona in 2009. My daughters and I loved Barcelona but wished we had been able to stay a few more days. We stayed only three.

    Nice photo!

    My will be up soon at The Pagan's Eye.

  2. hi rob! ^0^
    just reviewed your posts, glad you're doing better. ^-^
    can't imagine being hit by a bus nor beaten by 20++thugs, oh! that must've been pretty painful. It's good to get some quality rest, no rush really, ^0^
    despite that, you still gave us this cool bridge, certainly an interesting angle. ^-^
    take care!

  3. Essa é a chamada ponte giratória aqui no Brasil.

    Espero que cuides da tua saúde, e voltes o mais rápido possivel, recuperado e com todo gás.

    Abraços e ótima semana.

  7. I hope there's a gate keeping pedestrians from getting into trouble. You concentrate on gaining your strength back. Don't push.

  8. You just take care, Rob 😉

  9. Do we have to jump from one side of the bridge to the other side? Or just be patient and wait for it to swing back might be better, non?!

  12. Neat! Turning bridges seem like a difficult engineering solution. There is a turning railroad bridge at the south end of San Francisco Bay. Turning bridges are not common – «Louis» thanks you for this interesting contribution to Sunday Bridges.
