There are a million blogs of course – some we follow in our Blogroll like the fabulous Hola Yessica (who lives in Barcelona).
We came across another that has several photographs of Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí’s unique – and unfinished – church in Barcelona.
Begun in 1882, Gaudi worked on it until he was famously flattened by a tram in 1926. Scores of people have worked on it since and its completion is still some 15-20 years off. It will be odd to see the church WITHOUT the cranes towering about its spires.
This post isn’t about Sagrada Familia (see links below and film) but to highlight some great photographs on the (not normally Spain-related) Lost in the Midlands blog. They include hi-res images of workmen high up and a wonderful spiral staircase. The writer talks about avoiding plummeting down into oblivion!
The first photograph of the exquisite interior, with its stained glass windows, is breathtaking.
We haven’t forgotten Órgiva’s very own church of course – the 16th Century Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Expectacion. More on it another time – but in the meantime…
