G = Gaudi
Staying on my theme of Barcelona, there is beautiful art and architecture and Gaudi’s influence is one dominate feature. From the Sagrada de Familia, to Parc Guell to many buildings, it is hard to miss!
The Sagrada is still under construction – and will be for some time yet. These photos are from 2009 and there have been a number of changes since. One tip – go there early and head to the roof before the line gets too long!
There are more rooftop designs on Gaudi’s buildings. I think they look like aliens!
Parc Guell is a great place to wander and see what magical creatures await you. Of course, everyone wants their picture with the dragon! I finally gave up getting one with just the dragon and took a picture with random people.
The Sagrada is so incredibly beautiful. One of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. Actually all that I was able to see of Barcelona in 24 hours was amazing. Can’t wait to read the rest of your entries. They will definitely help me plan my next visit. That one will be an actual visit not an overnight stay tacked onto the end of a cruise.
I have a lot of suggestions about Barcelona when you are ready to go back!
I love Barcelona, and especially Gaudi’s influence! Sagrada Familia is most definitely my favourite building…the level of detail is nuts! Great photos too 🙂
I’ve never been to Spain- that’s a situation I’m hoping to correct soon- great post!
Wow. Those are impressive. The rooftop designs are amazing.
