I told you I will show you lot’s of pictures- LOL – so if you are only here to look at my projects- they will come soon :)
Sunday morning we headed out to the Pablo Picasso Museum which is the in the Barri Gòtic – the center of the old city of Barcelona.
All the stores had shutters which were closed sunday morning and on top there was often Graffiti – not always illegal graffiti – since it seemed as if the store owners did some advertising store graffiti on them too. I liked this!
From the museum, which we really liked a lot – we walked to the harbour.
We took the cable car up to Montjuïc and there we walked even more – LOL.
here is a picture of us- not the best- LOL but hey…what can you do? ;)
then we walked down to the Joan Miró Park where we found his Dona i Ocell (Woman and Bird)
And then it was time for a siesta :) And afterwards we headed out to the Sagrada Familia! WOWWWW – I was blown away by the details, the ideas, the whole concept! Amazing! It is under construction since 1882 and full of symbolism – it blew me away and made me an instant Gaudi Fan!
Gaudi planned the branching columns in the shape of a tree for the church- as he loved to include nature shapes into his work
Another thing I loved was that you could see the workspaces where the constructions go on and the plans – I think my friend Bill who is an architect would have had a blast here :)
From there we went to the Casa Mila- another Gaudi building- former apartment building.And there you have Gaudi-Lampposts with Benches on the street- such a cool idea! although I just read that these are mistakenly thought to be by Gaudi – so I have to do some research. Anyway- they are cool :)
I leave you with this for now- I think this is already picture heavy- LOL. Be prepared to see more ;)
