Placeta de Sant Francesc, Barri Gotic, Barcelona

Placeta de Sant Francesc, Barri Gotic, Barcelona [enlarge]

This is a tiny square, in fact it does not have width enough to be called so, along Carrer d'Aglà in Barri Gotic, Barcelona. Check the map below. There are some interesting bars on the area like Pilé 43 near Carrer dels Escudellers where you can have some mojitos and enjoy the retro decoration which is on sale by the way. But I digress. Most of all I wanted to include another front door street art sample in the neighborhood and perhaps highlight the beauty of the upper part of the image.

  1. excellent capture

  2. I agree with the upper beauty part...but it also looks like someone splashed blood about and beyond the door...or perhaps it's just paint? ;-)

  3. It is a feast for the eyes! Just a gorgeous place and a beautiful shot, Carlos.

  4. I love the historic feel mixed with the artistic painting!

  5. Nice art, I wonder if those color splats were the part of the design? Abstract modern art uses a lot of that color splats! Nice design both on top in the balcony and also down on the shutter!

  6. I really feel like this shot tells a story. It has great form. Awesome location!

  7. I like the artwork on the steel shutters - so little of that here.
