The famous Catholic Church of Barcelona. Designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi 1852-926. Incomplete until today, Sagrada Familia is attracting people from around the world to visit Barcelona only to see it. In love at first sight, this piece of art is worth the years of work put into it. The style of the church is from the Gothic and Art Nouveau forms. The designer Antoni Gaudi died when the church was only quarterly done. The project is supposed to be complete by the year 2026. I enjoyed staring at the details of this architect. A true piece of Art.
Today, I decided to take a break, hop on a bus and relax. Learn about the city am spending a week in and look at things from the top. The first thing that astonished me in this beautiful city of Barcelona is its architecture. Gaudi is everywhere, and when he isn’t there, you can see the people who are inspired by him. I’ve always heard about La Sagrada Familia, but I did not expect what I was coming to. Really this piece of art is nothing like the photographs, it is beyond words, beyond reality and beyond art; I was blown away. As for the rest of city, it has reminded me of Beirut’s beautiful streets and architecture in Lebanon. Buildings are very close to one another, and balconies are almost connecting neighbors, you can just easily step out from your own balcony into the one right across from you. The best part about the buildings in Barcelona is the random prints that surround some of them, that create authenticity, and history speaking between walls. While you take a look at my photographs, enjoy one of my favorite folk ambient songs by high highs, open seasons.
