Sagrada Di Familia

Which was Designed by Gaudi and is still being built by the plans that Gaudi made before he died.

As you can see, its wet wet wet, by the drips on my lens.
Our Guide said follow me and my RED umbrella, it was really really busy, shoulder to shoulder to shoulder, with it raining and many RED umbrellas it was hard to see where our guide got to, we got lost many times, every time we stopped to photograph we would stare at all these red umbrellas bobbing up and down.

Looking at my pics it does'nt look busy, thats because Im canny and snap quick where there was a break or lull in crowds.
Inside, its a builders heaven, loads of them, all laying the floor, its really like a shell, nothing like a church inside.

Next post is close-up shots of Sagrada Di Familia.

Mac: That is some wild design and construction.

It was very hot and humid when my girls and I visited and the crowds were beyond belief. But I managed a few shots and we all agreed it was the highlight of our trip to Barcelona. An amazing and unique work of architecture - still in progress. Never made it inside.

Have a great week, my friend! :-)

Very Gothic looking. You could imaging Quasimodo living there quite happily with the Phantom of the Opera and Dr Phibes.

It looks a lot like it did when I was there 45 years ago.

I can't believe how elaborate it is! It's too bad it was so wet but imagine how many people would be there if it were hot and sunny? lol

Great shots though, it does look more imposing with a cloudy sky!

Jack's family lives in Granada, and they want us to return there...and we want to go back. When we do, I am making it a point to go to Barcelona. These are absolutely amazing photographs, Stewart.. Thank you soooo much for sharing them with us!
Love,
Jackie

I've heard about this building -- it must have been interesting to see it in person.

Very different but I like the architecture.
