Barcelona is a huge city in Spain, in the Catalonia region, which is trying to break away and become its own country. Either way, it’s beautiful here on the Mediterranean coast.
The city is known for its wealth of architecture by Gaudi, which is easily recognizable in its extravagance, and is where the term “gaudy” originates. Here is Casa Battlo, or the House of Bones. The spookiest part is that not one right angle appears in the house.
Another curvy creation by Gaudi, Casa Mila.
Gaudi’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia, is a cathedral begun in 1882 and still under construction. They expect to complete it in 2026, a year still far away in The Future.
We finished our visit with a stroll through Park Guell, where Gaudi himself lived and worked. What a crazy guy!
Here’s Gaudi’s house, which, ironically, was probably the most sensible building we encountered.
Also ironically, we had sun and blue skies during our entire three months in the UK, but here in Spain it rained and rained and nearly washed our tent away. Thanks Gaudi!
Next stop……. is a secret!
