Barcelona is a favorite tourist place but still retains its sense of identity and native style. Local Catalans, along with guests from the rest of Spain, as well as from other places, know how to enjoy the coffee tradition and the relaxed charms of the city. When I was a child, I remember spending a day in Barcelona, and this was the comfortable and cultural environment that really impressed me.
However, there was something else I really enjoyed. At that time, I would have discussed it as the search structures of brightly colored swirls.
Since then, I have had conversations with people who have gone to the city and are willing to say exactly the same. My grandmother and also the favorite aunt went to Barcelona recently and explained everything about this once they returned. Paula, my aunt, showed me photographs of those ‘buildings that look for swirls’ and, obviously, are the work of the famous architect Antoni Gaudí. Gaudí would have been Spanish from Catalonia, a component of Spain with words whose inhabitants are often considered a different ethnic group. He lived from 1852 to 1926. In the images, I could see the beautiful, brightly colored buildings due to their unusually rounded contours. They also showed me numerous photos of my aunt and grandmother walking along cobbled streets and sitting in cafes.
Of specific interest to my family was the church of the Sagrada Familia, or perhaps the basilica and the atoning church of the Sagrada Familia in English. Designed and initially worked by Gaudi, development continues in half. It is a large building the size of a cathedral with eight huge towers, although Gaudí designed to be 18 years old. These have been to represent, in ascending order of level, the 12 apostles, the four evangelists (Matthew, Mark, John, and Luke), the Virgin Mary and probably the highest needle later would be Jesus. However, Paula, my aunt, was especially pleased with the interior of the church. She really appreciated the columns, and they are a distinctive Gaudí design. Their surfaces transform geometrically when you look at them. For example, there is a square column at the end that grows in an octagon above, then a sixteen-sided shape and eventually becomes a group. There are currently no level interior surfaces; every little thing is elegant and jagged or curvy.
Parc Güell is another beautiful part of Barcelona that I remember very well. It is a park with architectural buildings created by Gaudí. He also created the entrance to the buildings and the surrounding park. Here you can discover beautiful rounded structures and brightly colored mosaics developed to create a distinctive fairytale landscape. Gaudí had four passions in life, nature, architecture, religion and his homeland, Catalonia. The Holy Family shows its passion for religion, but Parc Güell is certainly inspired by nature. You will find metal and mosaic dragons there, as well as the columns and walls that have been created in a way that improves the trees, the natural environment and the birds in the park.
