...because of the breathtaking view for the BCN2013 Diving Championship...

....for the 2013 FINA World Championship Mens 10m platform dive, the 1992 Olympic Diving Pool at Piscina de Picornell on Montjuic was reinstated. Its spectacular view combined with the world championship diving makes for a breathtaking afternoon in Barcelona!

...because at the top of the tower is the Torre d'Alta Mar...

...tucked at the top of the tower, under the Teleférico (cable car), is Torre D'Alta Mar with its tremendous views and tantalising food. While you dine, you can watch the sunset over Barcelona and the night lights begin to sparkle.  It is a place to celebrate and appreciate (and be besotted again) by Barcelona.

...because in the dark depths of El Raval, I discovered somewhere delicious...

...I dont often venture into El Raval however, I did, and was introduced to this excellent little restuarant with a well deserved reputation for very good food. Reservations required(and a map to find the tiny street!)

...because for one week you can follow the 'yellow brick road'.....

... to OZ?!! (If only it was that easy!) When the yellow jacaranda trees drop their flowers for summer.

...because of a copa in the Cova d'en Xoroi....

...tastes even better alongside the spectacular view. This uber cool bar in Menorca, literally clings onto the cliff.  The bar is built on ledges and in caves and is THE place on the island to watch the sunset and listen to ambient music from the DJ.
