Here is another picture showing that beauty is everywhere in Barcelona, including in the most unlikely places.
This picture of papyrus plants was taken in one of the numerous Montjuïc gardens. Try to guess which one? Tip: there you can see a cattle egret which behaves like it owns the place.
In Barcelona, it is not only uptown that people pay attention to their homes. Even in working-class neighbourhoods one can find charming details, like here in Vilapicina.
Sunny days are back, and people like strolling along the beaches of Barcelona. During the warmer months, ephemeral bars and restaurants built directly on the sand are full all throughout the day. Here is a screen which hides the utility room of one of these businesses.
This is a picture I took a few years back in the Sarrià neighborhood. On some quiet streets of Barcelona, people who live on the ground floor actually grow plants and flowers in pots they keep just outside their door.
Boasting more than 245 parks and gardens, Barcelona is definitely greener than most capitals. In addition, strollers can admire flowered balconies, and tree-filled patios all over the city.
