Last year I was very excited to visit Barcelona for the first time. The biggest reason for the visit was to see the works of the amazing architect Antonio Gaudi.
This post looks at La Pedrera – built between 1906 and 1912
La Pedrera – Internal view
I love this building because Gaudi designed it to be lived it, using the best materials, and maximising light within a city environment.
Probably the most famous part of this building is the rooftop and fantastical chimneys.
Thanks to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: architecture to give me the chance of showing this amazing building
I always think that Cathedrals are the epitome of the best architecture of their time. This fabulous interior is in Prague
Fantastic Vaulted ceiling
The cathedral in Milan is an amazing landmark for the city. Luckily they allow visitors to climb up to the roof, allowing some very different viewpoints. The skill of the builders and stonemasons is breath taking.
Halfway to the roof
One of the grandest buildings I know: Milan Cathedral
