Back in the day, when I still lived in the shade of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, there were plenty of protests against the AVE down in sunny Catalunya’s capital. Although high-speed rail connections have been widely recognised as environmentally less harmful and generally more convinient for everyone than airlines, the Spaniards (sorry, the Catalans) did not want it. Especially nowhere near the Sagrada Familia which apparently was deemed to collapse without ever being finished as soon as AVE comes to town. You see, people are very hardly pleased by anything…
