La Boqueria fresh air market – if you can’t find it here, it’s not available! Chocolates, fruit, fish, vegetables, wine, spices – oh my!
La Pedrera, Antoni Gaudi’s wondrous building, with an undulating facade, metal “seaweed” balcony rails and the distinctive “whipped cream” chimneys on the top. The inside is painted in underwater tones, very mystical!
The altar piece at the “People’s Cathedral”, Santa Maria del Mar. The Spanish galleon boat sits right by the altar, a tribute to the working men who hauled massive stones for the construction.
A collage I watercolored of images from Parc Guell, a lovely hillside area above Barcelona, enhanced with sculptures, fountains and awesome rock structures all designed by Antoni Gaudi.
Musicians playing in an acoustically perfect alcove at Park Guell
At the tile museum, near Maria Cristina. The caption should read “Talk to the hand!”
The space age looking Calatrava Tower, on the top of Mont Juic, near the Olympic stadium and plaza.
The Magic fountain – my favorite attraction at Plaza Espana.
This statue had such a lovely back, I just wanted to touch it. (and I did)
A sweet little bodega (wine cellar and cafe) with a nice selection of wines, olive oil, olives – even legs of Iberic ham! You can buy the wine by the bottle or fill up your own container from the selection of wines in the barrel at a good price.
The Arc de Triumf – from the world expo at the turn of the 20th century, a small version of the one in Paris.
The inspiring Sagrada Familia cathedral, still under construction – each facade represents a different period in the life of Christ.
