I’ve heard it a lot: Gaudi is gaudy.
I make bad puns all the time so I can’t blame ’em, but sadly, it couldn’t be further from the truth. While the highly ornate exterior of La Sagrada Familia is not to my liking, I was blown away by the interior, modeled after a forest. I also really loved the Passion facade, however this is the work of another artist. I’d love to sit down and actually write about the architectural elements, but time is not on my side here in Africa. Instead, I’m just going to post the photos and recommend that if you ever go to Barcelona, you must a.) pay to go inside La Sagrada Familia and b.) pay to go up the elevator to the top of one of the spires and wind your way down the stairs. Enjoy! This is my last post on Gaudi and Barcelona!
