L'Eixample

The "door within a door" - I would like to live somewhere with an oversized front door like this!


A clever way to leave your front door open but still secure - a intermediate screening door...


The new next to the old, wide next to narrow - yet a perfect arrangement...


A park or square was going to be built here and in the process some old tombs were discovered. So now it is half park and half excavation site, with a viewing bridge across it.




I love how in Spain there is not a widow without a balcony. These are not just decoration, people use them. They are a wonderful intermediary space between the inside and the street.


Watching a busy Barcelona morning as I sat in a modern bar insterted in an old buiding, eating my breakfast - croissant & cafe.
