Painted – Carrer Princep de Viana

Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? I had a blast, hanging out and partying with friends, and today I feel tired and old! But that’s OK, because in Barcelona you can be proud to be old!

Sgraffito gorgeousness – Carrer Bonsuccès

Apart from Amsterdam, Barcelona is the only other city I know where age is carried with pride – on buildings that is! Whether painted in bas-relief, sgraffito’ed, carved, tiled, or carved, there are signs of age just about everywhere in this gorgeous town. Here, see for yourself…
