Barcelona | El Poble-sec at night


Evening view from Passeig de Miramar over the neighbourhood of el Poble-Sec in N direction. This part of the city was once inhabited by factory workers and artisans, but has evolved into a popular entertainment area in a multicultural ambience. The three chimneys, dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century, remind of the first electric power station in Spain. Sagrada Família, the cathedral of Barcelona, and Torre Glòries are shown in the background of the scene.
