Beautiful Barcelona

Beautiful Barcelona | Barcelona Life | Scoop.it

Barcelona is a city renowned for its art and architecture. This city is host to two of the world’s most famous artists, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudi. Gaudi is the most famed architect of the Catalan Art movement which began at the end of the 19th century and his masterpieces are glittered all around the city. Amongst his most famous work is the unfinished Sagrada Famila. Gaudi was a deeply religious man and his work was influenced by the organic forms of nature, which he viewed as God’s work. The Sagrada Familia was his final masterpiece but remains unfinished due to the fact that it is a “Sinners Church”. This means it receives no private funding and construction is only continued through the finances of the “sinners” that visit it.

A stay in Barcelona | travel is glamorous only in retrospect

A stay in Barcelona | travel is glamorous only in retrospect | Barcelona Life | Scoop.it

A weekend in Barcelona just wasn’t enough. I never really had a hankering to go to Barcelona, having only vaguely heard of Antoni Gaudi and associated Picasso primarily with Paris; hence why I wasn’t expecting to be blown away artistically by Barcelona as much as I did. I went down for 3 days with a good friend of mine and found a great deal on Barcelona Point, for accommodation. Unfortunately we never did any clubbing, as my friend sliced open his toe on our first night in Barcelona. Having a sore bulging toe meant he could not wear shoes and no nightclub in Barcelona was going to allow him in without proper shoes. So we contented ourselves with making the most of our days and socializing at the hostel party events. We did the Gaudi free walking tour and at first I wasn’t highly impressed with his style. His first paid works were the lampposts in the Placa Reial which looked overdone and overly gothic. I guess I prefer my lampposts to be simple and elegant.
