Day Out in Barcelona, Gaudi and Pavements

04 Sep

1. By train and Metro to Placa Catalunya, a walk in the park, people watching, admiring the fountain and being amused by the squawking trees. I eventually spotted a beautiful parrot by his nest.




2 Back down to the Metro where a keyboard was being played by a busker – I’ve never seen that before. It was very lovely to listen to. I liked the nearby sculpture too and we came up right by Sagrada Familia. What a wonderful creation and still being worked on! The organic nature of the architecture makes you gasp with wonder at every turn.






3. Another underground ride and up onto beautiful pavements made of tessellated and decorated slabs to discover more of Antoni Gaudi’s masterpieces, Casa Mila and Casa Batilo, more amazingly quirky and beautiful architecture to enjoy.





A fabulous day!

    The Casa Milla is not only a great work of architecture but also a great work of art! Apart for the Taj Mahal, it is one of the iconic buildings I would want to visit someday.
