Pictures of Barcelona


We're leaving France for a while. And going in Spain. But not too far, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia. It's the home of Gaudi, great architect. And has a rather diversified architecture. I stayed only one afternoon there but I tried to be as quick as possible (and I've been very fast). Couldn't take all I wanted to take.

First the Catalonia Square

Tripping in the gothic area. Sadly the Cathedral of Barcelona was in renovation and it was full of pilgrims anyway. You'll notice at least that jesus appeared in front of it. I also took some pictures of the king's square.

A square with many administrative buildings

Now, the port

The Guell Palace, you can't take pictures inside and I went too late to visit it anyway.

Pictures from various streets including the ramblas.

And last but not least, the Sagrada Familia

"To erect a tall building is to proclaim one’s faith in the future, the skyline is a seismograph of optimism."
Jean Nouvel
