This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.
Who is the one, who owns the crown in being a genius of decorating architecture way over the top? Antonio Gaudi!

There are many more stories to tell, and many photos more to show (and even to take). During our days in this city with a large history we were able to scratch the surface a little bit. We collected some impressions, visited some (in our opinion) important places. But, all of these is nothing compared to the history, collected over the centuries. In my opinion, one can travel on and on, and every time walking through the streets of Barcelona, she can find new places telling new stories. Just like any other place, too!
In this final post on Barcelona I assembled some photos taken in the former olympic area, the Ciutadella Park and the archaeological excavation area with remains from the ancient roots of the city.
Next week, I’m going to start my next series. It is on Iceland, as I already mentioned.
Inside St. Maria del mar I captured this nice sun ray coming inside from one of the stained glass windows.
I’ve posted some more photos from this church last Thursday.

As you can see, this church is old and is used by the mariners. Before sailing in other countries, the mariners came here to pray for a good journey, good sailing winds, good businesses, no dangers and a well coming home.
This church is quite hidden between the old houses here in the tiny roads. It was a victim of several severe fires. So, not all painted glass windows are still in place. But, the remaining ones will give you an idea of the skills of the window painters, who created those windows.
