Other sights of Barcelona!

So here I am again updating another dandy of my older posts, this one on mediterranean Barcelona. I have several posts on it in my blog so this one was to gather some misc pictures and show you a bit more of Barcelona. Hope you enjoy it as I

As I was  winding down my latest trip to Barcelona , decided to take some miscellaneous pictures as I walked by them. You know the tourist office and the city webpage and all those wonderful transport combinations; (see posts) now let me give you views and sights of Barcelona, and some off the beaten path thing to do.

And this is unique I think, a firemen’s museum !  The Museum highlights the history of the Barcelona Fire Brigade through the exhibition of its heritage and its connection with the city of Barcelona, ​​with more than one hundred and eighty years of history. Training and informative center dedicated to prevention and self-protection. What it does best is to exhibited objects come from the collections of the Barcelona Fire Department, which include more than a thousand pieces of all kinds. Among all these, the Delahaye bomber, better known as Genoveva, stands out, one of the emblematic historical vehicles of the corps. Apart from the utensils on display, the museum includes different elements with audiovisual content that allow visitors to interact. The museum also provides that users can experience the sensations that can be had during a fire, so an audiovisual system has been set up that reproduces all the stages of a real intervention, from the call of the citizen to the final resolution. of the incidence. The center has several classrooms to organize information sessions or courses on safety and prevention, and also includes a meeting center for entities.
