Gaudi, La Sagrada Familia, the most wonderful cathedral in the world!?

1/3/11
I highly recommend a jaunt to Barcelona for all you world travellers, if for nothing else, to see the works of the architect, Gaudi.  I love all his stuff, although it might not be for everyone.  The cathedral, still under construction on its main entrance is truly fascinating with one entrance the birth of Jesus, the other side, the passion and the resurrection under construction,  The inside is awe-inspiring with all sorts of symbolism as are the towers with Jesus' and Mary's yet to be completed.  While there, try out the restaurant Osmosis!













Above, the Sagrada Familia, various buildings designed by Gaudi and Guell park and a private residence by the same architect.

A beautiful city; agreed: Gaudi is magnificent. Great pix, and again, Happy New Year.

That is truly amazing it looks like you could wander around for hours taking it all in. Thanks for the great photos too!

Maybe you should consider a return trip to Spain in October. A certain American choir will meet you there.

I can't believe we were there at the same time and didn't know it. Please, let's announce our travel plans just in case they coincide in the future!!!!

Dom and I had fun there too -- the same days you were there...next time, we need to coordinate travel plans!

I am doing a presentation in our College to a group of mostly retired folks on Christmas in Art. I would be interested in using your image (1824_2) and putting it on a web page announcing the event. Would you be willing to give me permission to do that? It is a good photo of a great work of art.
