Barcelona - Part 1

(note that if you have a slow connection it may take some time to load the enlarged pictures)

 

Sagrada Familia which was deisgned by Gaudi with construction starting in 1882. Many of the designs and moulds werre destroyed during the Civil War but have been recreated from fragmants found behind a sealed wall. Not only is Gaudi's design amazing but so is his use of mathematics as part of the designs.
Gaudi is buried beneath the nave of the basilica


.

La Pedrera was the last non-religious building
Gaudi worked on. It is built entirely with columns
and parabolic arches, with no supporting walls,
and supposedly without a single straight line or
right angled corner.


Recycled metal was used for the
balcony iron work


The central stairwell


Chimneys and ventalation shafts
on the roof

Some City Sites


La Ramlba

The Old City

One of the many streest in the Old City

Street stall on the Rambla selling pets. At
night they just close up the fronts and
you can hear the birds chirping from the inside

The very kitsch Font Māgica de Montjuīc
which swells, dances and changes colour
to music from the current top 20.
