Pont Del Sospirs / The Barcelona Bridge of Sighs
We arrive in Barcelona and let out one long slow deep …sigh!
The elegant Pont del Sospirs (Bridge of Sighs) joins the eastern wall of Palau de la Generalitat to the western wall of Casa del Caonges… which is better known as the House of Cannons. Seriously, Barcelona! Apparently, there used to be many of these bridges so the hoity-toity ecclesiastical holy-rollers wouldn’t have to hob-knob with the peasants. Ok. Fine and Dandy with me. We will admire one another from afar.
