Photo Friday!! Where In Spain Is This?



By Nancy Todd

He went out for tapas and was knocked down by a tram.  Due to his disheveled appearance, this old man was sent to a hospital for the poor where he struggled to live for four days.  Two days into his stay, he was recognized as Antoni Gaudi and a big to-do funeral was held for him.

At the time Gaudi lived on the grounds of the famous Sagrada Familia Church where he worked with his team of craftspeople.  His compelling, frivilous architecture is famous around the world.  Barcelona has many Gaudi buildings.  Can you name the building where this architectural element is located?

Hint:  This building is not open to the public. It was Gaudi’s first completed building.

  1. Casa Vicens! I love the wrought-iron seashell/palm leaf design on the gate to the driveway (and I coincidentally happened to write a blog post about the house earlier today!). It’s too bad it’s closed to public; it sounds like a really interesting place, just as unique as Casa Batlló or Palau Güell.
