Back to Barcelona!
My second trip to Barcelona was a shorter one, but I still felt that insatiable desire to explore. So, this time I wanted to focus mainly on places where I haven't been to previously.
I dropped back in to Barcelona following my short Lisbon trip, which occurred right after a more thorough Madeira escape.
This time Barcelona was more grey and I caught a lot of rain.
Towards the end of September, the weather has gotten a lot cooler, yet there were still plenty of foreign tourists seen around.
One day I was stunned at the sight of a street thermometer - showing 15 degrees Celsius.
During the night it was rather cold in the hotel room as well.

It's one of the city's most important squares with prominent architectural monuments. The place was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition back then.
Let's explore together!
Montjuïc is the high hill that overlooks central Barcelona. It has a huge fortress on top. A great viewpoint. It's more for the views than what you can see up there.
Tiny town-like complex. Another place built specifically for the 1929 International Exhibition.
At first, it looked like a real small town, but one can easily observe that it's a "contained area". The houses, buildings are themselves the walls of the mini Spanish village-reproduction.
I continued spotting vehicles as I got back to Barcelona.
This time I could only find one that was interesting enough, so here it goes...
Again, I chose the same place to stay... this time - the internet actually worked! Pretty much everything was better in this room.
Except for my door lock breaking down, nothing really bad has happened during this stay!
