Wow! Words and pictures don’t even come close to revealing the wonders of Gaudi’s marks on Barcelona. We have slowly been making our rounds to see some his buildings and monuments around the city. Yesterday it was the Casa Batlló part mansion, part dragon and part pure whimsical joy.

Today we visited Park Güell a beautiful terraced public park sprinkled with many Gaudi treasures. It was designed as a private pleasure garden for the upper classes, but now can be enjoyed by all.
From there we wandered down the hill to La Sagrada Familia; Gaudi’s unfinished masterwork.

Consecrated as a Basilica by the Pope just last month, La Sagrada Famillia is one of the most outstanding buildings anywhere in the world. It is still under construction and won’t be completed for another 30 years but already it is unbelievable.
Gaudi was killed by a tram in 1926, but at least 400 workers are still on site working to complete his fantastic vision.
