City: Barcelona
Community: Catalonia
Set: Montjuïc Funicular





Following next, a brief of the Montjuïc Funciular, who connects the network of the Metro of Barcelona directly with the Montjuïc Castle. At the end of the set, as always, I include a video who also contains stuff from the Tramways of the city.

Barcelona: El Prat International Airport











City: Barcelona
Community: Catalonia
Set: El Prat International Airport





El Prat is an international airport located 12 km southwest of the centre of Barcelona. It is the second largest and busiest airport in Spain, and the seventh busiest in Europe. In 2018, Barcelona Airport handled a record 50.2 million passengers, up 6.1% from 2017. It is a hub for Level and Vueling, and a focus city for Air Europa, Iberia, EasyJet, Norwegian and Ryanair. The Barcelona–Madrid air shuttle service, known as the "Puente Aéreo", was the world's busiest route until 2008, with the highest number of flight operations (971 per week) in 2007. The schedule has been reduced since February 2008, when a Madrid–Barcelona high-speed rail line was opened, covering the distance in 2 hours 30 minutes, and quickly became popular.

From the Bus: Catalonia to Andorra





Here's the bus trip from Spain (Catalonia) to the city of Andorra La Vella. You may clearly see the differences between the architecture of both countries, though Andorra is highly influenced by the catalan culture. In addition to this, you may also watch in the video the sub-climates amidst the mountains, with heavy snow in some specific areas:

Andorra La Vella: City Overview











Andorra La Vella is one of the strangest enclaves in Europe. Like Switzerland, who's completely bordered by mountains, in this case the Pyrenees, it survived virtually to all of the war conflicts in history, including the two world wars. That is why it still retains the architecture, bridges and small churches that were built throughout its 800 years of existence. Andorra does not belong to the European Union, but its standard of living is one of the highest in the continent. Currently, in addition to being a popular ski resort, it is a city that mostly recieves senior tourism. Although it has an airport, it is used for helicopter connections to the nearby international airports in Southern France and Catalonia. It also doesn't have a rail infrastructure, though it is directly connected with shutters to the stations of L'Hospitalet (France) and Lleida (Spain). The best way to get there, however, is with the bus services who deoart from Barcelona-Nord Station.

Madrid: City Overview











City: Madrid
Community: Madrid
Set: City Overview





Madrid is one of the most populated cities of Europe, along with London and Paris. The city lies on the River Manzanares in the centre of both the country and the Community of Madrid (which comprises the city of Madrid, its conurbation and extended suburbs and villages); this community is bordered by the autonomous communities of Castile and León and Castile-La Mancha. Madrid houses the headquarters of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), belonging to the United Nations Organization (UN), the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB), the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), and the Public Interest Oversight Board (PIOB). While Madrid possesses modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid; the Royal Theatre with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro Park, founded in 1631; the 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; a large number of national museums, and the Golden Triangle of Art, located along the Paseo del Prado and comprising three art museums: Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía Museum, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which complements the holdings of the other two museums. Cibeles Palace and Fountain have become one of the monument symbols of the city. [/URL]
