Barcelona, a photo a day

Gaudi


Gaudi. A famous man, a famous name. I wonder if he ever imagined that so many things and places would be named after him… Gaudi Avenue, Gaudi this, Gaudi Hotel, Gaudi souvenir shop, Gaudi that. Hundreds, or maybe thousands of them.
Well, anyway, this, ladies and gentlemen, is the Gaudi tapas bar in the Barri Gotic. I love my bravas!

This is a bit of a test. I wonder if, by putting a famous name as blog title, it will get me many visitors from…outside. We’ll see.
I also added some music to this blog. Thank you for your feedback!!!!!

  1. I love Gaudi's work and he is so quirky and mad art – Parc Guell is really fun and I have a collection of mugs based on his mosaics – a sort of trademark of his! I wrote a post on them recently after my trip to Barcelona in July. Also I like the major buildings- La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, and of course Sagrada Familia. He is a real Barcelona icon. Nice photo this – and I love patatas bravas too!

  2. I had to fiddle for the mute button before I could compose myself to view this. I much prefer music that can be turned on by the user.

  5. They could do better for something Gaudi-like: a window askew, a round door… Inside it looks more in theme!

    I supppose you're right, Yoork, as pretty much everything Gaudi ever built is really over the top.
    Btw, in the part of Germany called Bavaria, Munich area, to have Gaudi means to have a lot of fun (and beers and sausages), it's similar to the Irish craigh.

  8. I suppose if I had speakers on my work computer it would sound a whole lot better. I'll have to check it out at home later. Right now, I'm staring at the food on those signs. Thanks Rob. Now I'm hungry. 😉

  9. Is that where the term “Gaudi” comes from?

    Interesting! We call things “Gaudi” that are over-the-top.

  12. I am sitting up in the north,in Stavanger, with my laptop in the living room and having “Barcelona” played just now, while I am writing.
    Thanks for sharing the music as well as todays photo.
    I saw a TV-program a couple of weeks back, about these famous buildings by Gaudi in your city. And the TV-crew were visiting a lady who lived in a very famous flat….. People were on waiting lists to buy one….
    Probably VERY expensive!
    Anyway, have a nice weekend!;-)
