Travel Postcard – Barcelona

£3.50 Incl sales tax

Barcelona was my home for five years and it will always be a special place to me. The architecture is incredible, the vibe there is amazing and I want to share it all with you. I hope these travel postcards take you to the beach at la Barceloneta, down the old cobbled streets of El Born, up to the highest heights of the Barcelona Cathedral and more. Each one was taken by me during my time living there. I have written a short bio of each one, because to me, they are not only photographs, but memories too. I hope by sharing a little about each photograph you will understand why I love it, and will love it too.

 

Each travel postcard was taken using my Olympus Pen PL8 Camera, edited in Lightoom and printed on thick card. They are Matte so if you wish to frame it you can. They are coated on one side so you may write on the back and send it as a normal postcard. This side includes ‘The Wee Wanderer Blogger – Travel Collection’ Logo. They are Medium size (127mm x 177.8mm). Each one is wrapped in tissue paper and sent in a cardboard envelope to ensure safe postage. FREE Postage and packaging is included.

  1. Arc de Triomf. The Arc is a beautiful spot in Barcelona, surrounded by palms which draw you down to the park Ciutadella. When I first moved to Barcelona, this is where I lived. It is a special part of town which often has markets and concerts at it throughout the year, as well as dancers, rollerskaters and street performers, there is always something to see at the Arc.
  2. “The World Begins With Every Kiss”. This mosaic is made up of lots of different tiles. Each tile is made up of a photograph. The photographs were sent to a local newspaper in 2014 when they were asked to send in a photo representing “a moment of freedom”. These photos were then put on the wall in the Gotico part of town in such a way that they look like a kiss. There begins “El Mon Neix en Cada Besada”. Beside the mosaic is a plaque which quotes Oliver Wendell Holmes: “The sound of a kiss is not as loud as that of a cannon, but it’s echo lasts a great deal longer.”
  3. Casa Batllo. Is arguably one of Antoni Gaudi’s most famous and interesting pieces of architecture. Each year on the festival Sant Jordi (Saint George’s Day), it is decorated with red roses on the balconies, as they are sold on the streets below them. A very beautiful day in Catalunya.
  4. Sunset at La Barceloneta Beach. The sun rises over the water at La Barceloneta Beach and so when the sun sets at the other side of the city, there is a warm glow left in the sky above the water, like so.
  5. Sun on Barcelona Cathedral. I love the way the sun in shining on the Cathedral here, showing all the intricate, detailed architecture.
  6. Cathedral rooftop. This is the view of the Cathedral from the rooftop. An interesting angle and a great view of the city too.
  7. Las Ramblas. This tree on Las Ramblas may not look like much. But if you look closely you will see on the tree trunk it reads “Testimo Barcelona” which translates as “I love you Barcelona”, and smaller, at the side it reads “No tenim por” which means “we are not afraid” in Catalan. This was written on the tree shortly after the terrorist attack which took place on this famous street. To me, it has always been a special message.
  8. Barcelona Cathedral. Taken from the front, in the main square. One of my favourite places to walk through town. It often has antique markets, festivals, buskers playing live music and the Christmas market too.
  9. Hospital de Sant Pau. This Art Nouveau site was designed by Domènech i Montaner. It is incredibly intricate and similar to another of his designs, La Palau de la Musica.
  10. Park Güell. Another of Gaudi’s creations. A beautiful spot where you can see all of Barcelona, from the gingerbread-like house in the park out to the sea.
  11. Palm tree at Placa Reial. This photo captures the local market open in the square, selling work from local artists.
  12. Parc Ciutadella. This very grand looking gold design can be found beside the fountain in the park.
  13. Rustic Doorway. This old doorway can be found in a square in El Born, the old part of the city. It has a rustic charm which is only added to by the plants adorned on the wall.
  14. Basilica Santa Maria Del Mar. This church is found in El Born, the old part of the city. This angle is unusual but it also encaptures the flame on the memorial square which was made in memory of Catalans fallen at war.
  15. Hospital de Sant Pau (Inside). This photo of the hospital shows what it looks like inside. Many of the buildings you can see here, are open to visitors to learn more about the hospital in the past, some of them are offices for example for the UN. Each one is very beautiful, covered in intricate designs and tiles.

I hope you have enjoyed learning a bit about each of the prints and I hope they will be as special to you as they are to me. Available to buy individually as well as groups.
