An example of the European-influenced architectural styles prevalent in the city. I was told by a tour guide that building materials from Europe were used as ballast on ships making the transoceanic commute, so in a sense BA has literally transported European materials and style to the city which is why it’s easy to think you’re in Paris or Rome or some other European capital when walking around town.

This was an old school pizzeria we visited, where many BAers like to come for a pizza, a beer and a futbol game on TV.
