Construction of Sagrada Família began in 1882, and Gaudí became involved with the project a year later, transforming it with his Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. The anticipated completion date of 2026 is the centennial of Gaudí's death.
Better known as La Pedrera (meaning 'The Quarry'), this residential building dates back to 1912. It is located in the Passeig de Gràcia (passeig is Catalan for promenade) in the Eixample District of Barcelona
This is a building restored by Gaudí and Jujol, built in the year 1877, and remodeled from 1904 to 1906. It is also located on the Passeig de Gràcia.
This is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on El Carmel Hill in the Gracie District. It was built between 1900 and 1904.
The focal point of the park is the main terrace, surrounded by a long bench in the form of a sea serpent. The curves of the serpent bench form a number of enclaves, creating a social atmosphere. People congregate here for hours. We found a shady spot on the bench and had lunch. Jamón, pan de leña (baguette) and sangría.
The Palau Güell is a mansion near Las Ramblas
We finished the day with a little shopping in Las Ramblas. Tomorrow we head for Madrid.
