You're not really in a position to determine whenever we will become an independent country, wether it happens or not... and anyway, if this thread is about Gaudí, and you want to rise over the ludicrous, low-archi-level superficiality of these discussions, you must put every element that conformed Gaudí's idiosyncrasy on the table.. and catalanism and catalan patriotism was a crucial item for him... every other consideration and denying this obvious political connection between his art -and the consequent personal/national style- and his own life, is just plain ignorance.

Palacio Episcopal de Astorga (León, Spain)

This is another magister piece of Gaudi. I think it is the best one with th Sagrada Familia. It is not in Barcelona. No comments about politics.

I do love Gaudi. But im afraid i dont like the way the Sagrada Familia is going to finish.. to much towers... but Parq Guell, La casa Batló... and also the buildings in León.. that seem so medieval... amazing

I think Gaudí is one of the best architects in all the Spanish history.

Really interesting photo thread again hk, your contributions to SSC are just great and essential for this forum, mate!

Ignore the Espano-Catalunya kindergarten quarrel.

For real? Never heard about that. Any source? I second your request of some impressions of that plan! Are there any?
