Barcelona Cableway

Torre Jaume I on the Barcelona Cableway. The cableway was built in 1929 and I am concinved that all the original parts are still being used. It is old, rickety and a little scary, but hugely fun in a retro kind of way.

This tower is 107 metre high, and is the midpoint of the cable car. In theory, you can climb out and stand on the observation platform, but our car went straight past. It still gives you a great view of Barcelona and the harbour area, but a one-way trip is probably sufficient.

My previous shot was of the drying snoek. There is a fair chance that the snoek was caught off a boat that left from this harbour early in the morning.

Aside from the fishing boats, the harbour wall still has many line fishermen using the harbour wall to fish from. While it looks like this fisherman was taking a break on his phone, you can see his fishing rod pushed into a whole made for the purpose, and there is a line cast in the water.
