Hello everyone! Hope you’re all feeling great. Back from sunny Catalonia so I’ve got lots of smiles this week.
a must see in Barcelona – the Sagrada Familia Basilica, which is a large Roman Catholic church, designed by Catalan Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí. The queue was really long so we bought tickets online and came back the next day. It was majestic.
Antoni Gaudí’s Casa Batlló is simply amazing! Although I bought the ticket online, I still had to queue for half an hour , but it was all worth it. It’s a brilliant building, full of Gaudi’s weird shapes, colours, mosaics, not one straight line sort of masterpieces. And from the roof, I can see the street and the people still queueing and taking photos of the building.
we joined a bus tour to Girona and Figueres from Barcelona and it was wonderful. The Dalí Theatre and Museum, is a museum of the artist Salvador Dalí in his home town of Figueres. Dali is buried there in a crypt below the stage. Some of his works are displayed there.
We went to Montserrat, which is a spectacularly beautiful Benedictine monk mountain retreat about one hour North West from Barcelona by train. We also listened to the famous Basilica choir boy performance of Gregorian chants and other genres of religious choral music. They are voices of angels!
What made you smile this week?
