You guys! I woke up in the middle of the night realizing I NEVER posted my photos from la Sagrada Familia from Barcelona last year. Wow, what an oversight! What if I get hit by a car while cycling to all my field sites and you never get to see them?! Well, I’m here to correct my mistake and post photos of the most beautiful building I have ever been in. (Sorry, not sorry, for the pile of photos)
I’ve been obsessed with Gaudi since college…he was brilliant, way ahead of his time, and he died tragically (apparently the three items that are enough to make me obsessed with a historical icon, read: MARIE CURIE). Gaudi was also an incredibly humble and pious man and I respect his dedication and work ethic. La Sagrada Familia was a project he spent more than 40 years of his life on, never to see it completed. Many of the plans he designed were burned in the Spanish Revolution, but the Spanish government is working hard to complete the cathedral.
After being obsessed with it for so many years, I was a little worried that I’d be disappointed. Was I? I was not. Go see it, it is the most beautiful building you will ever see.
