Astonishing, spectacular….mere words fail to describe La Sagrada Familia’s interior. It quite simply took our breath away (not easy as those who know us will attest!). Gaudi’s vision knew no bounds when he commenced the project in 1882 and to this day, the Cathedral remains a work in progress.

When asked the estimated completion date, Gaudi said there wasn’t one as the client wasn’t in a hurry, God had all the time in the world. Now entrusted to the hands of current engineers and architects to complete and reliant on benefactors, donations and tourism to fund. Photos simply don’t do justice.

What a vibrant, eclectic city is this! Hitched a ride on the big red bus to familiarize then wandered to view earmarked places dominated by Gaudi’s whimsical work including La Pedrera and the Park Guell, fueled with Sangria, Tapas and Paella along the way and wrapping up around midnight, just as the locals were coming out to play.

Tomorrow, a leisurely stroll around the shops and Saturday markets…so much to see, so little time!!
