The Barcelona’s gazebos (I)
When you visit Barcelona, you may find difficult to imagine the real size and shape of this big city. Although you can suppose it is a crowded place, sometimes tourists don’t appreciate the whole “body” if they don’t move to one of the several gazebos that let you see Barcelona from above.
The most impressive one is set in the Montjuïc hill. In fact, once you get there, you can choose between different sites from where you can’t help staring to the unique views of the city. The whole Barcelona will appear under you with its little unappreciated hills in the middle of the urban density, also covered by buildings. On the back: the sea. Some people say in sunny days, when the sky is clear enough, you can even see the Balears islands. To ensure a good view you can rent a car and drive through a curved road surrounded by forests. You can stop wherever you prefer and keep the delighting views by taking pictures. You will realize that these are as beautiful as the best postcards in the souvenirs shops.
Another gazebo is set in the Güell Park, the Gaudí’s great park where it is located the famous modernist dragon sculpture. Besides visiting this architecture and artistic treasure, reaching the Three crosses hill (“El mirador de les tres creus), one can become a privileged witness of the city. This hill reproduces the Jesus crucifixion place, presenting the three crosses of Christ and the two thieves.
Near Plaza España, there is a shopping centre called “Las Arenas”. After entering this department store you have to go to the top floor, where there is a restaurant which offers a 360º perspective of Barcelona. Don’t let this opportunity pass, even so if you don’t pretend to take anything from the restaurant itself.
