Carrer Bonsuccés and Ramblas dels Estudis Corner, Barcelona

Carrer Bonsuccés and Rambla dels Estudis Corner, Barcelona  [enlarge]

Capturing the mood of Barcelona streets is one of the main goals of this blog. I forget more than often where the city true essence lies, in the narrow alleys and the multicultural crowd, in the bars and the artists, in the markets and the food, in the noise and the light, in the canopies and the promenades. Here is Carrer de Bonsuccés as seen from Las Ramblas. To be more precise next to Nadal pharmacy at Rambla, 121, a chemist's dating from 1850. As you can see it is a long busy street. It extends until Carrer de les Ramelleres and Plaça del Bonsuccés, from there it turns even narrower and becomes Carrer d'Elisabets till it gets to Carrer del Ángels near MACBA, the contemporary art museum of Barcelona. In the foreground, the ever present police. But why don't you walk this route on the map?

Hermosa toma Carlos. Caminar las callejuelas alrededor de las Ramblas ha sido siempre un placer.

Great photo - it does capture to mood of Spain. I love the narrow streets with their small bars especially on a hot day when you can walk in the shade and escape the hot sun.

Carlos, de vez en cuando me paseo por aquí... la falta de tiempo me quita siempre de lo que más me gusta! cómo echo de menos bloguear!
en fin, qué tal BCN? según tus fotos de vuelta a la normalidad después de tanto revuelo papal... un saludo desde los madriles... ya se acerca el madri-barça ;)

I miss Barcelona and can't wait to go back again.

It is cold, wet and rainy here in the UK and your photographs always cheer me up and make me happy.

Thanks Carlos :o)
