Being given the opportunity to live in Barcelona for a summer has been the best experience of my life. I am very pleased to say that I have taken advantage of this opportunity, and I’ve successfully seen every place that I wanted to see in Barcelona. My favorite places that I’ve been to in Barcelona are definitely Parc Guell and La Sagrada Familia. Both masterpieces of Gaudi, my now favorite architect/artist.
Going into La Sagrada Familia was unlike anything I’d ever seen before. I’ve been in my fair share of basilicas and cathedrals, but this was so far from an ordinary basilica. The outside alone is incredible, but whats more amazing is when you walk inside and you feel as if you’ve walked into a forrest. It was so amazing to see Gaudi’s vision still coming to life almost a hundred years after his death, and the amount of work that is still to be done. It was breathtaking.
