While walking through Barcelona, you may be distracted by the chaotic hustle and bustle of the city, but have you ever taken the time to look up and see the world above the street? Each building you pass by is fitted with balconies that tell a story. Each balcony represents a separate life, all lived collectively in this vibrant city.
Barcelonians use their balconies as an extension of themselves and their homes. Almost every apartment, whether on a spacious street or a narrow alley, has a balcony. Many locals use their outside space to display flags, clothing, plants, and other decorations that symbolize their unique beliefs and styles.
In the morning, locals sit along the skyline with their coffee. In the evening, you can see a couple enjoying a glass of cava. These balconies are where Barcelona residents celebrate the simple beauties of life.
