La Sagrada Familia

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Words cannot express how excited I was to visit Barcelona and experience the architecture of Señor Antoni Gaudi first hand. There's something about La Sagrada Familia in particular that completely fascinates me. Knowing that he would not finish the church before his death, Gaudi began construction of the Naixement façade first, so as to set an artistic and architectural example for others to follow. You can tell the prominent role of Gaudi in the construction of this façade by the abundance of extraordinary gothic and curvilinear art noveau design elements. Conveniently, just across from this façade I found a little park with fresh fruit and few tourists which allowed me the perfect vantage point to relax, reflect and refresh in the Barcelona heat before climbing atop the façade. This spot will always remain my own special corner of Barcelona.
