The windows of Gaudi

Barcelona is primarily known for the fantastic architecture of Gaudi and the early modernista's.
The windows in the Casa Battlo, one of the most famous Gaudi designed houses which is open to the public, were really spectacular -especially seeing the busy streetscene on the Passeig de Gracia 2 stories below!
Wonders in wood, concrete and glass!

I was lucky enough to visit this house and Barcelona myself. It's a really beautiful, unique and often forgotten part of Europe.

Great post, thanks!

Nostalgic, yes, I never would have visited the first time if it wasn't for my best friend living there for awhile. It's now one of my top favorite cities in the world and I plan on going again and again!

I can hear Monserrat Caballe and Freddy Mercury singing in my ears.

I really have to visit Barcelona.
