Getting Gaudi in Barcelona.

Gaudi Architecture in Barcelona, Spain.

One great thing about staying in Barcelona for a month is that my time here happens to coincide with a lot of other people’s trips here. Another good thing about staying a month in Barcelona is that I get to see a lot of Gaudi. A whole lot of Gaudi. In my time in Barcelona I took a walking tour of Gaudi’s architecture, visited La Sagrada Familia, and spent a morning at Park Güell.

I’m not going to claim to be either an expert or fanatic over Gaudi’s work. But it’s beautiful and brilliant and I could easily live anywhere he designed…that is, if I ever could come close to affording one of his masterpieces. Which would never happen.

 

Gaudi’s Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

I met up with Darren one day, who I’d just met in Valencia. We grabbed a quick lunch then hit up Barcelona Cathedral before exploring Gaudi’s Casa Mila (La Pedrera).

Gaudi Walking Tour

And then the next day, I met up with Lily for a Gaudi walking tour, which took us past many of Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces, including La Sagrada Familia.

Palau Guell

And then I was on my own. And I spent an afternoon at Palau Guell.

Casa Batllo

And then I spent another morning wandering through weird communist art at the contemporary art museum before taking an afternoon at Casa Batllo, which was my favorite of his buildings. Seriously, when can I move in?
