Such a beautiful horizon

Barcelona, of course. Sung by the brilliant and immortal, Freddie Mercury.

It cannot really be a whole week since we flew there. Can it? On the way, somewhere over France, we saw this:

I have no idea what it was, but I thought it was very pretty!

The hotel was managed by real spoilsports ....

But we didn't let that spoil our weekend! Lol

We visited the Sagrada Familia (Sacred Family) Temple - Antoni Gaudi's masterpiece - and it is truly one of the most wonderful sights I have ever seen. Nothing can prepare you for the sheer size and, of course, the breathtaking beauty of it.
We approached the Passion Facade first....

The carvings are stunningly futuristic on this facade.

At the other side, is the Nativity Facade - an altogether more traditional design, but no more, yet no less, stunning ......

I adore this face:

Too tired to upload any more tonight. Hope to get more done on the morrow.
