“They don’t make them like they used to!” Of course not… it was a different time, different priorities, with less of the corporately bland requirements to have it done by yesterday. Oh, and health and safety hadn’t yet been invented.
But nobody told Gaudi and the Barcelona authorities that you can’t make them like you used to!
Take a stroll around the atmospheric Gothic Quarter and Barcelona Cathedral presents a dramatic example of what the 13th to 15th centuries had to offer the religiously inclined…
Then, if you’ve not had enough of the reflective devotion imposed by the incredible grandeur of such ecclesiastical trappings, take a further stroll (or few stops by Metro) to check out what the 19th to 21st centuries have to offer, c/o Antoni Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia…
Until we meet again, whether it is then or now… WOW!
Thanks, Steve, utterly dazzling images. Are they actually completing Gaudi’s unfinished cathedral?
Hi Beata, they have scheduled 2026 for completion, the centenary of Gaudi’s death.
Indeed WOW! Both fiiled with majestic grandeur despite one still in progress. Lots of perches in both for a Cool Cat!
