The view from the 25th floor of the Barcelona Princess Hotel and looking west over Barcelona's famous La Avenida Diagonal—en Catalán: Avinguda Diagonal—previously seen during the day HERE. The large building at the lower left is the upscale Diagonal Mar shopping mall. The Avinguda is one of Barcelona's broadest and most important avenues. It bisects the city in two—diagonally from west to east—hence the name.
The view across the street and closer to the sea. There are perhaps a half dozen diners on the ground floors of the apartment building on the lower right and immediately across the hotel. Most of the diners are family owned by Chinese immigrants who specialize in tapas, seafood, Spanish omelettes and paella ... as well as traditional American diner fare with a Catalan twist such as hamburgueses, rice, eggs over easy and shrimp. That would all be one plate!
