No one who has been to Barcelona would deny that the city is one of a kind. It has many angles to fall in love with: the Mediterranean sea, the Iberian sunshine, the great yet inexpensive tapas and wine, and Picasso for the art fans. But what makes it unique is just one name: Gaudí.
Barcelona is Gaudí's canvas for his Art Nouveau development. Most well known sites include: Casa Batlló (1904–06) and Casa Milà (1905–10), Park Güell (1900-14). In his last years, Gaudí abandoned nearly all other work to focus on Sagrada Familia, which he had begun in 1883, cloistering himself onsite and living in its workshop. When he died from an trolley accidence in 1926, the whole city was out on the streets to send him off. We hope to see the final completion in target date of 2026, to mark the 100th anniversary of his passing.
Wandering in Barcelona, one will see what a lingering love letter that Gaudí composed for Barcelona.
