Sorry if this is very obscure. I took this picture more than 12 years ago in Barcelona and I am finding it difficult to locate it. I think this were the letters RESTAURANT on a grass lawn, somewhere around the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya or the Olympic Stadium.

enter image description here

I snapped the picture of N and a couple other letters (definitely R and T). I am finding trouble identifying it. I did not go in so I don't have any more pictures. Does anyone know where this is?


Other letters enter image description here enter image description here

Some pictures before (timestamps ~ 12 minutes before) enter image description here enter image description here

And After (~25 minutes) enter image description here Now I remember, this metro was a bit weird that it went down really steep. EDIT: apparently this is the Funicular de Montjuïc. Thanks to @jcaron.

    If you took the picture with a GPS-enabled phone or camera, I would expect latitude and longitude to be coded into EXIF inside the original image file (not the uploaded one and possibly not in an edited image).

  • I wish. This taken on a camera without GPS capabilities.

    Well, then click on your coordinates to open Google maps, and just roam around with street view. You've got plenty of time this quarantine, right? :-)

    can you post the other letters? there might be something in the background of the photos that will be a good lead May 1, 2020 at 10:41

    It's a funicular railway (a type of cable car used on steep lines), and that stop is the lower station, Paral·lel.

It is the Jardi Botanic de Barcelona and the letters spell Jardi Botanic.

Google Streetview for the win!

  • Thank you, you are awesome! My memory was from 10+ years ago so I think I got it wrong. This is awesome!
