Churros con chocolate y horchata Favorite food on the trip? I think so. La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia is a Roman Catholic church designed by Antoni Gaudi. Construction started in 1882, and it was less than 25% complete when Gaudi died in 1926. Construction has been extremely slow since it relies only on private donations - in 2010 it reached the 50% complete milestone (these pics were taken in 2007). The Nativity facade
Love the soldiers in the lower left. Stained glass Passion of the Christ facade
George Orwell called it "one of the most hideous buildings in the world." I disagree. Unobstructed view of the ceiling. Construction inside the church. Takes away a bit from the wow factor.
The windows along the side of the church. Very cool columns and ceiling. Another shot of the Nativity facade.
Estimated completion: 2026 KILL THE BABY!!! Palau Nacional, which is home to the National Art Museum of Catalonia
Fountains in front of Palau Nacional. Looking down the Placa d'Espanya. Montjuic Communications Tower near Palau Sant Jordi on the grounds of the 1992 Olympic Park.
Baby octopi Posing for a close-up. It was pretty good.
Sweets stall at La Boqueria, a large public market right on La Rambla. La Boqueria butcher stall El Gobierno Militar
Street performers on La Rambla This guy was actually pretty funny Lazy costume and borderline sexual harassment.
Barcelona beach September crowds Barcelona port facilities
The Columbus Monument, 197 feet tall and located at the end of La Rambla near the port. Supposedly the hand was supposed to point to the west towards North America, but actually points to the east. Arc de Triomf, built in 1888.
Gothic Church of Santa Maria del Pi Arc de Triomf Pets or food?
Churros con chocolate, round 2. Seriously... so good. La Rambla artist
