After checking in at the hotel, we strolled around the square nearby. A big plaza!
This square with its central monumental fountain by Joseph Maria Jujol, marks the gateway to the great park of Montjuic, the setting for the 1929 International Exhibition and the 1912 Olympic games.The trade fair pavilions stand behind the two Venetian towers and are overlooked by the Majestic Palau Nacional. Montjuic hill, the city's green lung and outstanding vantage point over the harbour, has become a key point of reference for leisure, culture and sport. Fountains, gardens, theatres. museums and all kinds of sporting facilities makes Montjuic today one of the city's most appealing and variety-filled attractions. ( from the information guide)
So let us take a look!
Fountains at daytime. They will be colorful at nightime.
Seeing these places for me is like being in an another world. Amazing feeling!
This is for the men's eyes only:)
This is a shopping center! But I didn't buy anything because everything is expensive. Maybe they believe that all the tourist are rich:) Sorry to say, not all!
in the middle of the square
I found this old man so sweet. She played music with his bicycle. I asked him if my hubby can take a picture of us together. I really wanted to give him a hug, but my husband won't let me:) So I just put some coins in his box.
Another nice building
Well, time to eat. After walking for many hours, our stomachs were empty and needed to be filled.
We found this restaurant.
I tried their Paella. Wow! Big portion for me.
My hubby had chosen steak with potatoes, fried paprika and tomato. Not a big portion though for a hungry man:)
and here is my date
Bye for now. See you later at the magical fountain at night.
