When I go on holiday abroad, I am not one for sunbathing on the beaches, and instead I prefer city breaks. K and I went to Barcelona a few years ago and I absolutely fell in love with the Gaudi architecture, especially La Sagrada Familia. I could have spent several days just absorbing all the details in the stonework. While we were there the inside was still full of cranes and workmen, but it was still an impressive and beautiful space. I have enjoyed following the progress of this stunning building as the workmen seek to complete it by the one hundredth anniversary of Antonio Gaudi’s death. If you find yourself in Barcelona this year, this is a ‘must see’ sight, and I would love to see photos of the current stage of work on this building.
