Coming and Going, Carrer Petritxol, Barri Gotic, Barcelona

Carrer Petritxol, Barri Gotic, Barcelona [enlarge]

Resuming Barcelona as a topic, here I leave you with a view of carrer Petritxol at Barri Gotic. Some people come and some other go for time immemorial. Streets remain but they will also disappear some day and Barcelona will not be the same. History is caged in this part of town and without it we will be dehydrated, decaffeinated or whatever "de" something you may think of. So let's protect our history and restore the Gothic quarter! By the way, remember churros at carrer Petritxol!

I encourage you to check the magnificent work of Jay Wesler.

  1. what an ideal photograph! this speaks of Barcelona to me - the jumble of architecture of the centuries is something lacking in U.S. cities. are there any areas of medieval architecture surviving in Barcelona? is there any evidence of Roman occupation?

  2. looks like a medioeval district of Lucca. i like the wet tiles on the ground, those street lamps, and the light at the end of the street.
    bravo!

  4. Deborah, the old town used to be between Roman walls. There are still remnants of it. There are excavation sites that have brought to light our Roman past more than often. And the city has plenty of medieval architecture. If you want to know more about both moments in our history check this: http://www.webarcelona.net/architecture/architecture.htm
