The most recent stop on our European Tour has taken us to Barcelona, Spain where our apartment looked out on one of the most fascinating structures of the past 200 years, the Sagrada Familia church. It was begun in 1882, largely destroyed during the Spanish Civil War, and is scheduled to be completed in 2025, 100 years after the death of its designer Antonio Gaudi, my favorite modernist architect.
On the left is an image of myself pointing at a relief of a turkey on the wall of the Sagrada Familia. To the right I am inspecting the stained glass windows inside the Sagrada. This is one of the most original architectural spaces I have ever been in. I came to Spain in 1986 and missed so much I returned to catch up. It was worth it.
