Barcelona, a photo a day

Monthly theme day: chimneys


The CDP portal is down again, so please click here to see what other participants to the monthly theme day did.

The chimneys of the old Sant Adria de Besos power plant are an emblem of Barcelona, you can see them from pretty much everywhere. As they are not in use anymore, there has been talks about destroying them. But the people of Barcelona County decided to keep them as a symbol of the town’s industrial past. What will become of them, nobody really knows yet.

And yes, there are some moorings for luxury yachts just next to it. Nice touch, no?

  7. This looks like a power plant, with a fancy yacht parked beside it. The owner of the yacht probably is wondering why there is not another place to dock.
