Barceloneta

After all the excitement around the Easter weekend, I thought I’d start the week on a ‘light’ note… Few words, just the full impact of images which I hope you’ll enjoy.

I’d like to propose a post dedicated to all the different lights that grace Barcelona’s streets and buildings. There is a great variety of them, each more beautiful than the next, as you’ll see from the following images.

La Rambla

The most ornate I have come across:  the brass one above, which graces the walls of a hotel, and (below) the Chinese Dragon holding a ‘bamboo’ lantern on the façade of a bank building – both on La Rambla.
