Just thought of posting a quick one that 1) illustrates how Barcelona is taking city streets back from cars with it's Superblocks model, and 2) the video giving some background to how the "blocky" nature of Barcelona was conceptualized back in 1859.
Came across this lovely pic from Derek Hopper's tweet of a view from the top of this beautiful city. Indeed Barcelona looks unique from the sky. My first trip to Barna was donkey years back when I was working on some UK/Spain business projects. It was a short trip and by myself but I fell in love with this European city then.
