You made me feel all cultural, Barcelona.

7 Jul 2016

Happy Thursday, everyone! Welcome to the latest post in my Barcelona series from Day Two, where I saw La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, and just generally won't shut up about how great Gaudi is.

I hope you caught my 'I think I love you Barcelona' post and my 'What a beautiful sunset you have, Barcelona' post but if you didn't then do go and check them out. They're less cultural than this one but they do involve lots of pretty pictures of city views and sunsets.

Now, I'm not going to lie to you. I will never be anything but (tactfully) honest on this blog, and this includes me saying that I used to hate museums. My attention span was awful as a child and I used to just skirt around the place as quick as I could and then sit on a bench at the end. Yep, I was one of those people. Has that much changed? Meh. When it's the right museum, I like it but I wouldn't say that I've ever 'loved' a museum. La Sagrada Familia was seriously up there though, not just the spectacular cathedral but also the museum underneath it. I found it so interesting that Gaudi used nature as his inspiration and as soon as I read that, it shed a whole new light on his work. I don't care how lame that sounds.

My iphone barely does poor Gaudi any justice, but here are a few of the pictures I took from both outside and inside....

We then ventured on down to La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, popping into a few shops on the way. The great thing about Spain is that a lot of the shops are cheaper than they are in England, so Zara and Mango were a big hit with us. I bought nothing for some bizarre reason, but looking at the clothes was fun as always.
