Arc de Triomf, career break travel adventures in Spain

It may be less grand than its more familiar cousin in Paris, but Barcelona has its own Arc di Triomf. No, that’s not a misspelling. That’s the Catalan spelling on the archway. I sort of stumbled across it while walking around Barcelona on my short trip to Spain. I left the Picasso Museum and headed away from Las Ramblas to try to see some other parts of the Gothic Quarter. While checking out my trusty map, I noticed the Arc di Triomf and figured, what the hell, let’s go see it. I was surprised when I arrive to see almost no one around. Middle of a summer day and no one. So, I got the chance to admire its Moorish-inspired architecture and get some nice clean shots, one of them being this Suh-Weet shot.
