Photo Hunt: high



A panoramic view of the the Plaça d'Espanya  from the 27m/ 88.6 ft high rooftop terrace of a new shopping mall in Barcelona, which was once a bullfighting ring and it is pictured in the prior post.

The tall Venetian Towers mark the road that leads to the Magic Fountain and to the National Palace of Montjuic, which can be seen in the back.This palace was constructed in 1929 in order to house the installations for the International Exhibition of that year in Montjuic, and to display a selection of Spanish art. Along with other buildings from the same exhibition it should have been knocked down when the exhibitión ended, but it was preserved and it nowadays houses the Catalonia Art Museum. Aditionally, the Barcelona Fair buildings can be found on both sides of the Venetian Towers.
