Adventures in Barcelona
We started our trip in Barcelona. It is a very big city.
View of Barcelona
Most of the history we looked at related to the great designer Goudi. Of course one of the largest designs is the huge cathedral La Sagrada Familia. This cathedral is fairly new and is still under construction. It is one of the most interesting Catholic cathedrals in the world. Besides the enormity of it all, the design elements are one of a kind.
Overall this is a very impressive church and worth the trip to Barcelona.
Another Guadi building is the Guadi house, also known as Casa Batlló. Again another impressive building. His designs are very unique.
We then decided to head to a Hilltop 20th-century church by Catalan architect Sagnier known as The Sacred-Heart-Church (“Sagrat Cor”) on the Tibidabo mountain. One of the highest points in Barcelona. In order to get there, we had to take a bus to the bottom where the Funicular takes you to the top. That alone was a cool, very steep, ride.
At the top is a large area with an impressive cathedral. Right below it is an amusement park. On a big viewing platform, I noticed a few love locks on the fencing and I decided it was a good place to hang one of ours.
After our walk around the church and grounds, it was time for a bite of food. At the bottom of the funicular we found a nice little restaurant with good views and good spaghetti.
It took a few days but we thought we gathered a lot of history in Barcelona. It was time to head to Figures to the largest Dali museum in Spain (maybe the world).
