July 26: Castell de Montjuïc 4
Back down to the middle level to rove around some more.
The western intersection. This must be quite a sight in a pouring rain.
A well-centered airplane.
Another pentagonal turret. Note that the shaded wall to the right of the front corner is in view all the way to the far wall, just extremely foreshortened.
Chamber haunted by lightning ghosts. No entry.
So many cones!
A lovely secluded memorial.
Wow, these oleanders are poppin'!
Here's that unnerving large, broken block again.
And a bench of substantial oddity.
This was about as far west as it was possible to go; beyond there (to the right in this view) were military installations that I think have since been removed.
The vault over the western tunnel.
Straight wall, curve shadow.
A climb back up to the south.
Out onto the Sant Carles Bastion at the eastern end.
At the outer point of the bastion, perched over the sea, is this statue commemorating Gaspar de Portolà, the first governor of California, who was of Catalan origin.
Bricks and tracks.
These weird trees were having a tough go of it on the steep slope.
OK, time to roll out. Just one more look out to the west...
...then back down to the entrance tunnels...
...then under the pulleys...
...then out across the bridge. The flower beds look like one huge metaflower.
Starting back down to the city. I think this must be a zoomed view, hence the flattened feel between foreground and background.
