See the mountain in the pictures above? It’s name is Montjuic, and on our fifth day in Barcelona, we climbed it, slowly and ponderously, and visited it’s Olympic Park (rather modern – we weren’t huge fans) and then visited the Castell de Montjuïc that is at it’s peak.
On days like this, Jonathan and I are both so glad that we’re both walkers. It is such a wonderful way to experience a city, to take it in slowly, and not pass it all by underground in a metro, hopping from attraction to attraction.
When we got home, we had dinner (tortilla) out on our balcony. Then we explored the Gothic quarter a bit more before heading off to bed.
