Montjuïc Castle Telferic de Montjuic Barcelona (2)

If you follow the blog you’ll soon realize that I love cable cars and take every chance I get to ride them.

13 Jan, 2017 in Southern Spain

To get your bearings in a new place or just to get a feel for a city’s beautiy, it’s best to find a good spot to see the city from above.

Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit, venturing into a new area of central Spain that I haven’t been to yet.
