It was day devoted to Antonio Gaudi's works/legacy

Iglesia de la Sagrada Familia or Church of the Holy Family. This is the Gaudi facade that recalls organic elements and is like a living, breathing sculpture that still comes to 'life' as each day passes. Construction contues to this day. It seems that the cranes are permanent fixtures now...

Interrior of Sagrada Familia

Standing here, being in the undercarriage of an elaborate structure is something else. The aesthetic application married with structural 'bones' give this room its coherence. Awesome's the word I use to describe this 'cave' and it was my first time there as I didn't even go inside when I first visited Barcelona back in 1991.

thirty three

Add the colums vertically or horizontally and you will come to 33 any which way...signifies the life span of Jesus Christ.
