Shiny Barcelona

Sagrada pipes

Organ pipes, Sagrada Familia

 

Barcelona is one of my favourite cities. Culled from my archives are these images that remind me just how shiny and beautiful it is.

Intricate

As a detail-oriented person myself, I appreciate intricacy.

This is a display unit for a shop in Barcelona that sells … well … you get the picture. 😉

So beautifully intricate and functional. An appropriate artistic rendering in a city steeped in art.

Thanks for visiting …

Orange … Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

~*~

Sagrada Orange

The stained glass of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is stunning. Its rich colours warm and embracing. Little wonder my thoughts turned to this beautiful church for a spot of orange.

Sagrada Orange II

The area around the organ is surrounded by plexiglass. I suspect this acts as a baffle, but it also has its place as a mirror for all that gorgeous orange stained glass.

Sagrada Orange III

Everywhere you are, there it is.

Perhaps orange is the new black. 😉

Illumination … Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

This is my entry for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Week 13.

One of my favourite activities when travelling in Europe is to visit the great cathedrals and other beautiful places of worship ~ the Sagrada Famlia nestled in the heart of Barcelona among them.

Originally designed by famed Catalonian architect, Antoni Gaudi, and with construction beginning in 1882, this amazing edifice is slated for completion around 2026.

Though the interior is not yet finished, for a fee tourists are able to go inside and see the miracle unfold. The Sagrada Familia is an expiatory project which is to say the building of it is completely funded by private donations and the millions of visitors who flock to see it every year.

I featured several images from my visit some time ago in a weekly photo challenge. This is one of my favourites.

The Sagrada Familia is well worth some of your time if you’re ever in beautiful Barcelona.

Thanks for visiting,

Dorothy
