This is the view from our apartment:
This is the Sagrada Familia, designed by Antonin Gaudi. Construction started in 1882 and it may be done by 2026 (or so). I have always been fascinated by his work and now I get to see it up close. His buildings feel like living beings.
There are words on the Sagrada Familia… I didn’t expect that. And the fonts they are written feel modern.
We’ll take a tour of the inside in a few days.
Next up, we walked to Gaudi’s La Padrera, aka Casa Mila, an apartment building, and toured the inside. This is looking up through one of the atriums…
The rooftop is covered with magical ‘figures’…
In the attic you get a chance to appreciate how Guadi’s buildings are constructed. They may look random, the the math and engineering behind them if perfect, and astounding!
I am fading fast as I write this. I hope it all makes sense :-). Tomorrow we go Montserrat!
Wow! That is spectacular! What a wonderful trip with such great memories.
thanks for showing us some of the ins and outs of what you have seen…… looking forward to tomorrow……..
That view is outstanding! Thanks for sharing
Thank you for sharing. Just like being there with you!!!
Keep the photos coming. They’re really beautiful !!
I cannot begin to imagine what it would be like to see this in person. Enjoy each day for sure
Barcelona was my favorite….until I went to Prague, this summer! I was at the Sagrada Familia in 2006, It has come a long way since then. I’d love to go back when it is finished, whenever that may be!
