Walk at Plaça d’Espanya
After the short break driving my MG on Montjuic hill heights, let’s meet up in the same area for a short walk. We will start from Plaza España, at the bottom of these two Venitian columns built for the 1929 World’s fair as the entrance. Well, wearing my Armistice shoes I’m heading for the Palacio Nacional… just follow the guide, that’s free and nice to see!
Behind my back is the Palacio Nacional. It was built for the World’s fair as well. Nowadays it homes the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia). Short stop next to the “Gran Padre” gang, better prove your credentials if you want to continue the visit. The most dangerous is the one on the right: blue hat, yellow glasses, he looks like a 80’s pop singer but still plays his cards close to his chest. Never joke with them, just look at their hands, they all have a concealed weapon, play it safe… no need to run, 3 of them would follow you in a flash (those who wear sneakers)!
The palace overlooks the whole Plaza de España, from its height of 184 metres. There, enjoy a magnifiscent panorama on the 4 columns, the arena and the central fountain. Now I let you enjoy the view then take the escalator back to reality.
Thanks to Romano for taking the photos
