I have just returned from a long weekend away in Barcelona.
The last time I was in Barcelona was around 15 years ago and I was so looking forward to revisiting Antoni Gaudi’s work.
Unfortunately, the Sagrada Familia was closed to visitors on the day that I visited.
Luckily, I was able to visit the beautiful Park Guell designed by him.
Love the shape of the roof of the Porter’s lodge pavilion, with its colourful mosaics.
In the centre of Park Guell lies an open space originally planned for an open theatre, now rechristened Nature square. It is surrounded by undulating walls of mosaics.
Bright pops of yellows and blues, the perfect combination.
The tile shard mosaics on the ceiling of the Hypostyle room, laid amongst 84 striated columns. Simply stunning!
Here is the external of Gaudi’s home – Pink, blue and green.
The primary colours on the chimney are striking don’t you think?
Anyway, hope you’ve enjoyed the post. I’ll be writing more on Barcelona soon. Happy week all!
