Gaudi has something special … something that also happens to the city of Barcelona, which is unique
As well, when you put the name of Gaudí and Barcelona in one sentence … the result is fantastic! Magic!
It’s no secret that many people come to Barcelona mainly to know the work of Gaudi in Barcelona. And that Gaudí has something that fascinates us all: local and non-local.
Antonio Gaudí died at age 73 in Barcelona, after being hit by a tram, when he was a high point in his career. He was working at that time in the temple of the Sagrada Familia. Did he imagined that in 2014 his work would be already unfinished?
Although the work of Gaudí found in various places in Spain, as Comillas, Astorga and León (in fact we can see a recreation of the three works in Catalunya en Miniatura), most of Gaudi’s works were in Barcelona. In fact, thanks to Gaudí, Barcelona is as rich in Catalan Modernism.
In this blog you will see that we have written articles for most of them, but beyond reading what we tell you, do not hesitate to visit all you can.
|Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia||1883-1926||Barcelona|
|Colegio de las Teresianas||1888-1889||Barcelona|
|Cripta de la Colonia Güell||1908-1915||Colonia Güell (Santa Coloma de Cervelló)|
Regarding the latter, the Colonia Güell is located in a village near Barcelona and can be reached in few minutes by train. It is a wonder worth seeing.
In Barcelona we are especially pleased because Casa Vicens and Torre Bellesguard (whose real name is Casa Figueres) could not visited until a few months ago. Both are already open now.
