Portal de l'Àngel

Where would we be without lights at night? And how lovely is it, when lights are beautiful, as well as practical? Here are a few examples of lovely lights around Barcelona…

Carrer del Carme

Both indoor lighting and outdoor lamps can be quite striking here in Barcelona. See for yourself at the top, a very fancy lamp on the wall of the spacious lobby of a very beautiful building on Portal de l’Àngel, and below in a passage not far from the Cute Suite. Above, a street light, mounted on a wall on Carrer del Carme.

Correos

Above, one of the lovely brass lamps that you can find in the main postal office, on Passeig de Colom, and below, the jewel-like street lights that grace Carrer Ferran. They always make me think of earrings!

Via Laietana

Two more indoor + outdoor lamps that delight me: the one above can be found in the lobby of a bank on Via Laietana; the one below, on the outer wall of a department store on Carrer Santa Anna.

I hope you enjoyed these lamps! May they illuminate your weekend! Next week, I’ll show you some of the Christmas lighting around the Old Town. Have a great weekend!
