  Arquebisbat courtyard, Barcelona, Spain
by Martin_S.

Favorite thing: While walking down one of the streets in Barcelona we happened to look into this courtyard that had a guard and office on the side. I walked into the alcove near the office and took this photo looking into the courtyard. The sign next to the office said "Arquebisbat"...we looked in our guidebook, no luck. When I looked it up on the internet, I got the following:
So now I know it has something to do with religion, but not quite sure WHAT...it appears to be the local seat of religious power, and the guard appeared to frown on my photographing the courtyard so I did not even try to penetrate deeper into these religious mysteries.
