Excellent shots! Barcelona is just one of those stunning cities that everyone should see at some point in their lifetime.

I love how Barcelona contains the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. Some neighborhoods feel like Algiers and others feel like Paris or Rome. What an interesting city with a very Moorish influence. Barcelona is the ultimate "shabby-chic" city.

When I was there last in 2003 many Indian shopkeepers made sure I realized they were Indian and not Pakistani. Until this day I never understood why they would even think I even care.

Nice, a thread on Barcelona which not only consist on postal card pictures
Some neighborhoods look indeed shabby, and IMO the city council doesn't do everything they could to keep them nicer and cleaner, but no city's perfect, isn't it?
Nice pics again, sky-eye

Glad that you saw Montserrat. I've been there a few times, as a kid and as an adult, and it has always fascinated me. The monastery with the choir is a great experience there.

Great tour. Thanks.

Beautiful!
I went to Barcelona in May and the weather was ugly, so I couldn't see Montjuic!
