The glory of Gaudi

Reaching for the skies in a spirit of optimism this New Year’s morning. I am, of course, looking up and taking part in Becky’s January challenge. Let me wish you all a Happy New Year! May the year bring peace, calm, good health and not too many more challenges.



  1. I first visited Sagrada Familia in 1991. It was pretty grim back then. Then I went back with the family in 2013 and I literally wept when I saw inside. It was so beautiful. I think I took a million photos! Happy New Year to you, Jo. May it soar like Gaudi’s ceilings!


  2. Wow Jo, this one generated tons of responses. I will admit that although his masterpiece is indeed just that, I am not really a fan. It takes a certain sensibility I suppose. Call me a traditionalist, I’m more of a small white church with a steeple kind of gal 😊. But loved your soaring view of his world.


    1. Until I walked inside I was sceptical, Tina. I was gobsmacked because it was so much more than I expected. I rather like small , white, Greek too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I’m spending the month in Barcelona, with Becky. If you’ve never been you could end up a convert? Yet another challenge.


      1. Well sadly Jo, I have been. Absolutely LOVED Barcelona and many of Gaudi’s other works, but afraid the church left me a bit cold. Different strokes I guess – since everyone else loves this masterpiece

      2. Good that He didn’t make us all the same, Tina. Just spent a lovely evening with 2 friends. One is returning to UK tomorrow and can’t wait to come back. An interesting path ahead in 2021. Sending hugs πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•

  3. A perfect description of Gaudi’s gorgeous work…glorious! Best of it ALL to you, Jo. This past year proved that we can pivot with the best of them. Gives me strength for the new year.❀


  4. I’d love to see some of his buildings in person, but thanks to you and others who’ve shared photos. Thanks for being part of the positive things in 2020 and I look forward to enjoying more of your walks, discoveries, thoughts, and treats in 2021. As for challenges, no more…unless they’re WordPress challenges. πŸ™‚
