Las Arenas Bullring in Plaza Espanya, Barcelona

© All Rights Reserved

As I have not much time lately I am tidying up my archives, now that I can post bigger images. I once published a small image about Las Arenas Bullring, that mastodontic engineering work in front of Plaza Espanya. Summing up, it consists in lifting up the whole coliseum that once held the arena where bullfights took place by means of huge jacks and props to make way for an underneath path among many other things and...check full details or links in the post. Feel free to ask once you come back. Another image here, showing the left side and what used to be the main entrance in this other.

  4. Unfortunately it was impossible for me to participate (I am already feeling sorry about that!) but I encourage people to visit it and send them my support. Thanks for asking Nathalie.

  5. What a project! I wouldn't imagine it would be possible! I'm glad they aren't just tearing down the original building though.

    As for the exhibit, you'll have to be sure and do it next time. :)

  7. Yo antes vivía por allí, y me alegra ke en Barcelona se hayan prohibido las corridas de toros, sólo falta ke los impuestos ke pagan todos los españoles dejen de subsidiar esas corridas.

    Saludos compañero

  8. No creo que echemos mucho de menos el ruedo. Mejor tener instalaciones modernas como estas. Siempre que sean para uso público claro. Gracias por la visita.

    Hi,

    I see that you have changed the width of the blog page and the size of the photo.

    How do you do that?
    Would you let me know?
