MM 2-46: Barcelona Metro

One day during our visit to Barcelona last Fall we walked to the Metro Station below Placa de Catalunya to take the L7 to Tibidabo. We only had to wait a few minutes for our train which was enough time for me to take this shot of the L6 train across the track. This will be my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.

The L6 line ends at the Reina Elisenda station in Sarria. Queen Elisenda was the fourth wife of Jaume II, King of Aragon and Valencia and Count of Barcelona. After he died in 1327 Elisende entered the Poor Clares Monastery of Pedralbes and died there in 1364. Her elaborate tomb is located in the cloister of the monastery. Pedralbes (Catalan for “white stones”) is just a few blocks west of the Reina Elisenda Metro station. The monastery was built by King Jaume for his wife in 1326, the year before he died. The three-story Gothic cloister is one of the largest in the world.

Don’t forget to drop by Leanne Coles’s website this week to see what other photographers have submitted for her latest Monochrome Madness Challenge.
