Minty – Carrer Diputació

Finding your entranced barred is often a very unpleasant thing, but not in Barcelona, where more often than not it is a thing of beauty, especially in the Eixample, with its profusion of Modernista buildings. If you don’t believe me, check out this small selection from the Eixample, el Raval and also the Barri Gòtic…

After seeing these examples, I think you’ll agree with me that finding one’s entrance barred doesn’t have to be so bad after all, right? Anyway, corny word play aside, have a great weekend, with lots of sun and fun, and see you here on Monday!

    Really beautiful entrances, I love the turquoise one in the beginning.

      They are, aren’t they? I love that one too – it’s so ‘in your face’ thanks to its colour!
