We want Barcelona to StreetView

Ever since at the beginning of June they announced that Google was taking photographies from Barcelona, we are hoping that the service  shows them to StreetView.
But it seems that still we will have to wait for a little more, because if we go to Google map, nearest Barcelona in Street View, it is in France, in the Tour of France.
When Barcelona?

When Barcelona?

The web Barcelona Movie, is to discover the city since the cinema, so that the person who consults the Web finds the relation of the scenes and its location in a plane of the city, as well as complementary information of Barcelona.

Almodovar BarcelonaFor example, now you can find Almodóvar‘s scenes in Barcelona (“All About My Mother”) :  Monument a Colom, Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, Palau de la Música Catalana. 

The scenes of “The Perfume” in Barcelona of Tom Tykwer, “Erasmus Students’ Barcelona” of Cédric Klapisch, also Giovanni Veronesi, Peter Greenaway, Alejandro Amenabar, Fernando Trueba, Michelangelo Antonioni, who are some of the directors who have used the city as a location for their films.

“Barcelona” to Google spanish

What do you think that happens, if we make the search of the word “Barcelona” in the Spanish Google?

 As it happens in the version of Google in English, one would wait for in the first places the Web of the City council of Barcelona or the connection to the Wikipedia with the information of Barcelona. But it is not true. Apparently Google-Spain believe that the Web of the Football Club Barcelona is more important.

Look at:
