Who is the one, who owns the crown in being a genius of decorating architecture way over the top? Antonio Gaudi!


Take care!

600_7419-e_wHola amigas y amigos,

although my series on Cuba isn’t finished yet, I propose another series on a spanish speaking location: Barcelona the capital  of the region Catalonia in Spain. Literally Catalonia has ist own language: catalan. Catalan is also based on Latin, like Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and French, but differs a lot from Spanish. All signs are in three languages: Catalan, English and Spanish. So, you might find you way. 

Catalonia is the home region of some famous artists: the opera singer Montserrat Caballé and the painters Salvatore Dalí and Joan Miró. 

During the last days I was in Barcelona with some friends walking in the spurs of Antonio Gaudí, the famous catalan architect. He lived from 1852 – 1926. He developed a unique style in architecture and created many wonderful and interesting buildings. I’ll write some posts on Barcelona later. But, to give you an idea of his unique style, I attached a photo showing the basilica La Sagrada Familia (the holy family), his still unfinished masterpiece. 

You can click on the photo, to see it in a bigger size. I’ll focus on some of the details (not only on this church) in further posts.

I’d recommend to subscribe to my blog, to not miss any of the further posts.

Stay tuned.
