With the recovery, the neighborhood of El Parc i la Llacuna del Poblenou is booming: new hotels, office buildings, co-working spaces, and design schools are popping up right and left. In the old days, there were mostly small factories and warehouses in that area, like the one which inspired this picture.
The neighborhood of Baró de Viver is part of the Sant Andreu district. There, one can find mostly brick buildings and housing projects. The good surprise was to come across the façade of this school decked with rectangles of colored material.
I remember my first visit to the Tíbidabo park when I was a kid, I just loved it! Today, the magic is still there, and the colourful rides attract crowds of children and grownups alike.
To the happy crowd spending the month of August in Barcelona, I suggest strolling down the beach between the Barceloneta and the Port Olimpic.
