Have you been to Barcelona? If so, we're you awestruck by the Sagrada Familia church (see my avatar) and Gaudi's other pieces?

Asked by scrappyblue (44points) August 1st, 2008

It’s been 7 years but I often think of how beautiful that city is especially Gaudi’s achitecture (e.g., Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, roof of Picasso museum). Anyone else a fan?

Yes. Yes I was. It’s been a while for me, too (10 years). I have to try to go back when they are nearing completion of the Sagrada Familia. It looks like someone took wet sand and just let it drip into spires and sculpture. Absolutely breathtaking. But I think my favorite was La Pedrera

Oh, La Pedrera is breathtaking as well!! Good idea to visit when Sagrada Familia is done! 2026 is awhile off so hopefully I can get there again before that.

In 2001 a relative gave me a free plane ticket to anywhere in the world. My choice? Barcelona, and I went to see specifically La Sagrada Familia, and yes, to this day I think occationaly about the whole experience, which was awesome, with emphasis on awe .
Too bad is taking so long to complete Gaudi’s vision of it, like NY’s Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine

Never been to Barcelona. It’s a huge dream of mine. I’m a huge fan.
2026? I don’t believe it! They’ve only been working on it for the last (how many years is it guys?150? 200? more?) And they’re actually going to finish it? I’ll believe it when I see it ;-)
