Barcelona - On a recent visit to Barcelona I decided to train the attention of my camera upwards and to capture some of the beautiful buildings that Barcelona has to offer. This makes for an alternative to the more common images associated with the Catalonian city.
This photo essay follows on from an earlier one which focused specifically on the architecture of the Spanish artist Antoni Gaudi.
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid.
This photo essay looks at some of the more varied architecture found in throughout Barcelona.
First, here is a selection of more unusual buildings:
