" Calle de Petrixol "
This charming street beside Sta. Maria del Pi church, which I have posted awhile back,
is a narrow alleyway, lined with old houses, garden balconies, antiques and paintings.
But what lead me specifically to this street were its nice, decorative tile designs
with some cute but funny catalan slogans.
I don't speak their language so, too bad, I can't translate what it means.
they all look the same from afar, but if you notice closely,
each tile is different from the other.
and then, there's the fascination from reading Carlos Ruis Zafon's = Shadow of the Wind,
which maybe, one of its inspiration while writing the book.
A good way to start Calle de Petrixol is from the church of Sta. Maria del Pi,
You'd find the house of Solingen on your right,
there's a house number #1 with a plaque that reads Entrada and walk your way towards the end.
As for me, I couldn't stop taking fotos from left to right.
The historic feel of this path was an interesting treat.
But I should've warned you before reading this post,
this is overload!
sorry, can't decide which to post. ^0^
I wish I had more info to share, but you get the picture. ^0^
this was a random shot I got from someone else's roof.
and to end our short walk,
our good ol' boots infront of a plaque.
