Hola! I'm back from my trip to Madrid and Barcelona and have lots of outdoor photos to share. One of the best things I admire from European cities is their magnificent architecture and in Barcelona, Antonio Gaudi's work can be seen everywhere.
This is a photo of the entrance to Park Guell. The park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings by Gaudi.
These cave like walkways are all over the park
At the top of Guell park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona
Park Guell also has a beautiful house in the park which Gaudi lived in at one stage, and is now a museum.
This grotto is on a wall by the front door of the house, which shows Gaudi's devotion to his Catholic faith.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden
An entertainer in the park
Antonio Gaudí was a devout Catholic, to the point that in his later years he abandoned secular work and devoted his life to Catholicism and his Sagrada Família. He designed it to have 18 towers, 12 for the 12 apostles, 4 for the 4 evangelists, one for Mary and one for Jesus.
This church has been under construction in Barcelona, Spain since 1882 and as you can see from the cranes above, it is still under construction and is not expected to be complete until at least 2026. Now you know where we got the expression "that's so gaudy!"
Here's another one of his building in Barcelona, it is the Gaudi museum.
