Palau Nacional Barcelona

The first stop of this short tour was the Palau Nacional. Unfortunately, I had no time to visit the MNAC museum, because it was already late. If I had a full day on my own, I would have considered to visit the museum.

Another photo of the Palau Nacional, glowing in the late afternoon sun.

View across Barcelona

The view from MNAC is fan-tas-tique, and these five business people are enjoying it as well.

Barcelona seen from MNAC

Another view across Barcelona. Here you can see the church Sagrada Familia in the distance.

Barcelona Late Afternoon

The sun was going down slowly, throwing its very special light across the city. A true miracle when seen from the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC).

A final photo of the Palau Nacional. Now the light was fading quickly, and I had to take the last tourist bus to explore the city.

Monument a Cristofol Colom Barcelona

This is the Monument a Cristofol Colom (Monument for Christopher Columbus), situated directly at the harbour. When Columbus returned in 1493 from his trip to the U.S. (well, it was not the United States back then :-), the Spanish Queen congratulated him here for his success.

Mirador de Colom Barcelona

This is another photo of the Columbus monument. It was errected in 1888 and can be visited to enjoy an awesome view across the old town and the harbour.

Transbordador Aeri Barcelona

Right next to Barcelona's World Trade Center, you will find the Transbordador Aeri, the aerial tramway that connects the Barceloneta Harbour and the World Trade Center with the Placa de l'Armada right above the harbour. The photo shows the stop called Torre de Jaume I.
