3 – Another selection of shots from our trip to Barcelona earlier this year, following on from our Streets & People and General City posts. This time they are of the work of the modernista architect Antoni Gaudí – The Sagrada Familia.

This angle lets the Sagrada Familia dominate the city in a way you don’t sense walking around.

The interior of the building is now largely complete – the exterior is likely to carry on for many more years.  The finished feel inside is almost other worldy.

Similarly, the light – and colour – from the windows is breathtaking.

For those brave enough to go up the towers, there’s a long walk down this steep spiral staircase.

The angles have a fantasy quality, like something from the imagination of Mervyn Peake.
