Barcelona, a photo a day

Sagrada Familia: the zoo


Looks almost Celtic, doesn’t it? Well, it’s catalan, made by the Barcelones painter and sculptor Josep Subirachs. The whole cathedral is literally covered with animals, snakes, dragons, frogs, couple of cows, a giant turtle, birds, and so on. Here are a few of them.

  1. My first thought isn't sacred at all. I'm thinking this is a great place to play “I spy” with my nieces! :p

    When I saw the cathedral the first time there wasn't even a roof, I wonder if we'll see it finished… Great series, by the way!
