Highlights of Gaudi’s Barcelona

I’ve recently finished reading Dan Brown’s latest page turner ‘Origin’, another journey into Robert Langdon’s world of codes, symbols, religion and conspiracy.

The book centers around two fundamental questions of the human species “Where do we come from?” and “Where are we going?”, and the major part of the story takes place in and around some of the key sights of the city of Barcelona. Brown’s description of the Sagrada Familia or La Pedrera settings is insightful, vivid and absolutely fascinating.

Reading the book reminded me of my short visit to the Catalan capital many years ago, so I’ve dug out some of the pictures. I believe building work on the basilica has significantly moved on since then, and imagine lots else will have changed. So it’s clearly time for another visit!

    You have some great images on this post, are they all your own?

    I’m working on a publication in the UK to be published by RIBA Enterprises Ltd. and am interested in featuring one of your images.
