July 26: Castell de Montjuïc 1
Then on to the interior of the Castell.
Just inside the front gate are two tunnels curving up to the left and right, their intersection topped by this excellent brick vault.
The righthand tunnel. Such lovely geometry.
I hiked up the lefthand tunnel.
The front (eastern) walk on the middle level.
Unless my sense of perspective is playing a trick on me, the railing of the platform up these steps looks just high enough to be a trip hazard.
A look down to the front bridge and the convertibus over the trip-off railing.
Turret haunted. No entry.
Incredibly, an even more expansive view of the port than the previous ones was to be had up here.
The southern walk in the strong sun.
The walk dipped down to an intersection on the western side.
Sun's out, guns out.
Looking just a mite rusty.
Hmm, I wonder how the large broken blocks at lower right arrived there.
A showy specimen indeed. Don't know what it is.
Castell cat companions.
A framed view of the Puig d'Ossa, I think, at the southwestern end of the Collserola range. It's visible in previous shots too, if you've been wondering what the tower way to the left of Tibidabo and the TV tower is.
A rather sculptural stair headhouse.
Or maybe it's a bottomless pit headhouse.
