We went to Barcelona over President's Day Weekend which was amazing. The architecture was spectacular and different from any we have seen. The tapas were delicious and the Sangria was how I had hoped it would taste. :)

Sagrada Familia at night

Sagrada Familia. This church began construction in 1982 and is anticipated to be done in 2026! It was opened in 2010 and is the most amazing sight to see. It was designed by famous architect, Gaudi, from Spain.

Inside the Sagrada Familia

The architecture inside is as amazing as the outside

  1. The architecture there is crazy! Not a straight line in site. The detail that they put into everything is incredible. I wonder how many change orders the contractor has submitted on Sagrada Familia in the past 31 years? ;)
