I will be posting about my recent trip to Barcelona but hoped to highlight on some areas in more detail. Barcelona is a city full of vast architectural beauty and the most famous Barcelonan architect is Antoni Gaudi.
Art works splashed throughout the Parc de la Ciutadella and around the city were also great views, however the unfinished work of Gaudi may be his most impressive.
The Sagrada Familia, designed by and worked on until his death in 1926 (Hopefully to be finished by 2026) The inside of the church is like a stone forest and I don’t speak figuratively. It features two opposing frescoes, one in a very lush celebratory style full of renaissance ornate ness depicting the nativity, the other a raw and angular depiction of the Passion of Christ is still under construction and has to be framed by the bones he planned to have build atop the roof. The church is enormous, but still has many towers and meters to rise. The architecture is unlike any church or cathedral you will ever see-- a work for all ages. I plan to return in the years to come to see it continue.
