Places we love because of their madness. Part II.

2 Sep

Let’s finish the previous post with more of the craziest buildings ever built in spain.

Número Ocho: Ariane 5 at Sevilla’s Expo.

What is it: The Expo Sevilla 92 changed Sevilla completely. Sevilla has always been a traditional city and the Expo opened it to the world. Lots of beatiful buildings are still at the old Expo’s terrains, one of them this Ariane 5 exact copy. There’s no need to go to Cape Kennedy to see rockets!

What do we think when we look at it: ehm… the Ariane 5?

Número Nueve: Hungary’s pavilion at Sevilla.

Places we love because of their madness. In Spain, of course.

We wanted to make a small post about the craziest buildings you can find in our lovely country. But after doing some research…Wow… we cannot name all of them in just ONE post!
Let’s start with the ones we already have shown you here in this blog:

Número Uno: La Ciudad de las Ciencias y de las Artes de Valencia.

What is it: With this “short” name we have one of the most revolutionary buildings in Valencia. The whole city was revitalised with this complex of buildings with an opera house, an oceanographic, museums…

What do we think when we look at it: we think of manatees! or armadillos 🙂

Número Dos: Sagrada Familia.

Bilbao & Tapas in our tripNETer Road Trip

28 May

We are in Bilbao!

And we have to admit that we fell completely in love!!

This amazing city of the Basque Country didn’t let us even breath: There’s so many things to do!.

Walking through El Casco Viejo is a must! Don’t forget to climb the never-ending stairs from Plaza Unamuno to Parque Etxebarria for those breathtaking views.

It is also a must, to walk along the river or ‘La Ría’. In the last 10 years, Bilbao has suffered an intense renovation, and the ‘recovery’ of the river was one of the main goals. Our mark: First class with honors.

Down the river finally you run into the symbol of the green spain capital: Guggenheim Museum.
