I was asked about the spires on the header of this blog. No, they are not part of a church, they are on the roof of a private house, the Palau Guell, or Guell Palace. A private house with a difference, as it was built for Eusebi Guell by his good friend Antonio Gaudi.

It gets a little lighter on the upper floors.
Many more of those spires on the roof, with a fantastic view over the old town.
