Gaudi’s curvaceous architecture and its natural pastel colours simply revel in the spring sunlight. The colours change as you wander around the roof and as the light adapts with season and time of day.
The snaking line of the roof with its scaly tiles and knobbly ridge resemble the back of a dragon and reminds you that the building’s nickname is “House of Bones”. I have to admit, though, that I’ve added a bit of extra curve to those graceful chimneys, with my wide angle lens (a new toy for my weekend in one of my favourite cities).
Gaudi’s style is linked closely to nature, and this is the perfect place to make a relaxing start to your day in Barcelona.
