Barcelona – La Sagrada Familia (part two)

In the last post I introduced La Sagrada Familia and showed a couple of shots of the exterior. It isn’t complete yet, and while impressive, for me it pales in comparison to the interior.

When we walked through the main entrance, I felt like the air had been sucked out of me. I was in such awe. Gaudi, and the architects that have built his dream, are absolutely amazing. The architecture, the detail and especially the use of light will blow you away. Several times we had to sit and just breathe. Tissues are also a good idea (at least I needed them).

I hope some of these pictures give a sense of what we experienced. For me this is more spectacular than St. Peter’s in Rome, Notre Dame in Paris and the Duomo in Milano.
