Barcelona, a photo a day

Gaudi



Another picture from Parque Guell. Gaudi made several of these round tile things, on ceilings. Quite amazing.
By the way, in Parque Guell, you will also find the longuest park bench in the world, over 800 meters, or half a mile, entirely covered with multicolored tiles, snaking it’s way through the park. I hope being able to post something about the bench soon.

  1. Wonderful! I love Barcelona (just got back from a short trip there) and Gaudi. Have you seen the “respect cactus” at the entrance to the park (the entrance you get by using lots of escalators)? It cracked me up… 😀

  4. On the ceiling? Ah, I understand now from its angle. Looking forward to seeing the bench. In my hometown, we used to have the longest restaurant in the world :).
