Standing on a vantage point 173 metres above the port, Montju´c Castle commands stunning views of the city. Now a peaceable place, the memory of this fortress endures in Barcelona as a symbol of repression but also of the cityĺs struggles during different periods in its history.
The top of Montju´c is the ideal place for a bastion of defence, with 360║ views of the city below. However, this military enclave wasnĺt built until the Reapersĺ War in 1640. In 1652, the fortress, which stands on the site of a watchtower, came under royal ownership and, some 50 years later, was one of the key defence points in the War of the Spanish Succession, between 1705 and 1714...

Namaste korkut, what a composition. Love the use of light and the presentation in monochrome. A nice one indeed with the signs of traffic. Tfs.

A very impressive picture, I like the shadowed character coming out of light. Viewing your picture, I remembers scenes of 'Midnight Express'.
I see in your gallery you master the B/W and you produce pictures of great quality.
