Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #22: Happiness is…


Visiting Gaudi’s unfinished church La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona was one of the most moving and spiritual experiences of my life.  I was prepared to appreciate the unique architecture, but I was not prepared for the feeling of wonder, awe, and peace of this space.  Truly, it is a place where you can feel the presence of God.

      Barcelona is a great city, and this was the highlight for me. You should go see it!
      Sevilla is also a beautiful city! The cathedral with the Giralda is pretty amazing and a very cool mix of cultures.

    I agree – totally, with every word you say. Six years ago we visited the cathedral, and I could hardly leave…I think I spent 2-3 hours just looking at all the fantastic details and the glory of it all. Your post made me long for a new visit. It is magical, and knowing how Gaudi was thinking and what made him go on, and his tragic death adds to the wonder.

      I definitely lost track of time and didn’t want to leave. I hope to go back someday when it’s completed…hopefully in my lifetime haha. Gaudi was an amazing visionary.

        I think they said 2025? But dates change of course.

      I was there about 6 years ago, I would love to go back when it’s finished!
