The Colors of La Sagrada Familia
The colors of La Sagrada Familia took me by surprise convincing me even more just how amazing this cathedral in Barcelona really is.
La Sagrada Família is a Roman Catholic church unlike any other in the world. First of all, you just have to look at it to see how special it is. Designed by Antoni Gaudi, it is centered in Barcelona.
I love how it combines Gothic and Art Nouveau. Gaudi’s creation was clearly an imposing and ambitious project. Its staggering exterior walls are completely chiseled. Various designs, statues and symbols kept my eyes wandering.
In the interior, what I really took notice of was the reflection of color originating from its stained glass windows. The colors lit the inside of the church in such an artistic and creative way. Some stained glass windows were placed next to clear windows which let in bright natural light. Their juxtaposition offered a mesmerizing contrast.
My sister and I opted to climb the towers to take in the view from the top. If you don’t mind narrow spaces your reward is a beautiful panorama.
*I apologize for the lack of photos for this post. Unfortunately, my camera was stolen and so was my SD card with most of my Barcelona photos before I had the chance to back them up. When I redid my site, the photos that were uploaded to the blog were lost as well. It wasn’t meant to be! They were great photos of La Sagrada Famlia, I promise!
