Camp Nou – I guess this is an arena were football is everything. Here the saying – “life is only a small part of football – nothing more” comes true. But look the green grass! Who would not like to kick football in this field. It really invites you to play …

Montjuic castle
This is not actually very old castle but built for one “world exhibition” one century ago. But how nice place on the top of high hill outskirt of the city of Barcelona.

But this is not all. Middle of the old city there are foundations of old Roman castle. Even though Barcelona is said to be founded by Carthagian general Hannibal, it’s actual origin lies in Roman fortress.

Here statue head from museum. I would say this is Marcus Crassus – the richest man in Rome – until he was killed in the war against Parthia. (And they torched him first by pouring liquid hot Silver in his mouth, because he was so greedy, they said.)
