Interesting Buildings in Barcelona.

A visit to Barcelona may be incomplete if you miss the work of famous Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi. He changed the face of architecture and building technology with curves, shapes and ornaments. We stopped by at two of his iconic buildings. Below here is La Pedrera or Casa Mila, a residential building, Gaudi made for a business man. It is said to be one of the last piece of civil engineering by Gaudi. At the time of Antoni Gaudi’s death, he was working on Sagrada Familia. It is a Roman Catholic Church in the Mallorca district. The construction work started centuries ago. When we visited the church in the Spring of 2013, it was still an ongoing project; preserving the old and continuing the process of building, according to Gaudi’s original plans. The mystical, magical, yet terrifying facade of this building has a beautiful interior, made of ornate columns resembling trees, flowers, stars and stained glass windows. The reflection of light inside the building creates a magical feeling. A closer look at the building from outside will make you notice the  sculptures and statues.
