Today I’m looking from one piece of Gaudi architecture to another, and up close and personal with these formidable Warriors. I seemed to fool most people with What’s up, Doc? yesterday. It’s my final Gaudi building but I’m not yet done with Barcelona. By my reckoning there are still five days of squares to come. Where next, I wonder?
And so to the last of my Gaudi buildings. You had a peep inside Casa Milá (La Pedrera) on Silent Sunday yesterday, but it is the Warrior Rooftop which is truly spectacular. Scroll down the above link to catch a glimpse of the Butterfly and Flower Courtyards, and of the Gaudi exhibition in the attic. You might recognise the photo below, which would make a good brown for Jude’s Colours. I’m not sure about the warriors- a sort of beigey-brown? You can find a full history of the building in the La Pedrera section of the link. And an open top bus is a great way to see Barcelona.
It’s an extraordinary space, like all of Gaudi’s designs. The light was beautiful up on the roof, as you saw yesterday. And how strange to have a power station on the horizon. I’m a day late with my Skyline but hopefully Debbie will forgive me. Meanwhile I’m Dreaming of Buttercups.
Ending my visit to Parc Guell with this verdant scene. I carried on up the hill to the Tibidabo Amusement Park that day, mostly for the tram ride and the views. So much more to Barcelona than you might expect. And blue sky for Becky.
