Day Five in Barcelona.

Today was our last day in Barcelona. We spent the day at Montjuic. The area originally contained a castle, which was then converted to a fortress in the previous century. As a fortress, it was the site of a jail, court and execution area following the revolutionary activities in Spain in the early 20th century. Now, the fortress and surrounding gardens have been returned to the people of Barcelona to enjoy. The area is also the home of the Olympics at Barcelona. We decided, however, not to go there.

There are no pictures to post this time. We mainly took video.
