    This building is in Barcelona, Spain created by Gaudí.

    The work is most definitely Gaudi’s there’s no hiding his unique style. I spent a week in Spain about a month ago and was lucky enough to see two of his designs while parading through Barcelona, the Park Guell and the Sagrada Familia. I don’t believe I saw this particular one however but to go along with the trend I would venture to guess that this creation of his also resides in Barcelona.

    Hi! I’m from El Paso, Texas, US, but I’m going to Salamanca next week to study overthere for a semester. I was in Barcelona two and half years ago for a couple of days in a tour and I absolutely loved Gaudi’s work! It’s very beautiful! I am planning to visit Barcelona again in this 6 months that I’m going to be living in Spain :)
