Barcelona at Night, Palau de la Generalitat


Barcelona at Night, Palau de la Generalitat

Barcelona at Night Palau de la Generalitat

I like wandering along the street of Barcelona at night. After sunset, the Ciutat Vella – the old city – gets a different charm which is both lively and intimate. I guess that most of the appeal of Barcelona at night is due to the old street lamps, shedding a warm light on the old buildings.

Crowded during the day, at night Plaça Sant Jaume – the large square which is Barcelona administrative heart – becomes much quieter. The beautiful Palau de la Generalitat, a historical palace whose origins date back to the Middle Age, overlooks the Plaça. Its superb Renaissance façade becomes even more striking under the warm lighting, and makes me feel, for a little while, as I was back in time to another century.

    Barcelona at night is more intimate, at least in certain streets and squares. I’m sure you would like it a lot, Catherine.

    I only visited Ciutat Vella during the day so there were many people. It was still wonderful to walk around there, but I’d love to at night and see it like you did.
