Debbie does...round the world
27th Aug 2010 - Spain
Barcelona

Today was a hop on hop off bus experience. What a fabulous city

First stop was on the blue line to the amazing Sagrada Familia - Spain's numero uno visited monument - wow wow wow. Still being constructed and finished (taking over 100 years) it is a seriously amazing cathedral - perhaps the best I have been to.It is supposed to be finally finished in 2020s but who knows with the length of time it has already taken.  It was about 8euro to get in and plan for a few hours as so much to look at and see. The early building was done under Gaudi's supervision - Nativity Facade was mostly him.

Continued on and did a brief stop at Futbol Club Barcelona - my nephew David is starting to become a bit of a football fan so brought the obligatory outfit for him. Then onto Port Olimpic and wandered the beach front for a while before hopping on the green line just to have a look and then back via the red line to Casa Battllo - Gaudi's 'house'. Tapas for lunch first yum.

Casa Battllo - now Im not really the architectural type but the second wow wow wow thing today.You cannot but help admire and appreciate Gaudi's amazing work. The outside building itself is amzing - the curves and the colours. The inside is something quite exceptional - swirls and waves and twists and wood and coloured glass. i have never seen anything quite like it and dont think I will again.
