gaudi in barcelona

gaudi gaudi gaudi!
i can never get enough of gaudi!

we spent the early day, everyday, visiting something gaudi
for those of you that don't know - gaudi was a spanish catalan arhictect in the late 1800s to early 1900s.
his work is fascinating - leaves you speechless

casa milà (better known as la pedrera) was incredible
i dont even know where to begin!
i guess i'll say my favorite part was the roof top
giving you a 360 view of barcelona
the interior and its details were amazing.. from its structure to the door handles
gaudi sure did get it right!

and then there was parc güell, a park situated on a hill of el carmel
there are gardens
and architecture
and an old aqueduct 
... and hiking!

(designed and built by antoni gaudi between 1900-1914)
and saving the best for last
we spent our final day in barcelona
visiting gaudi's casa batlló
a building restored by gaudi, built in 1877
this building is remarkable
inspired by underwater life, there are no straight lines what-so-ever
the details are phenominal
the rooms, well.. i wish they were mine
it was almost impossible to get a bad shot here, with my super-wide angle lens (thanks tay!)

i can only hope and dream, that one day i will get to return...
but until then
these photos will keep me happy...
