Casa BatlloThe house is just awesome; there are no straight lines, doorways and windows are all curved
with fabulous kiln formed glass a feature of many.
This glass is above a screen that divides the room
The windows at the front that lead onto the amazing balconies
Close up of the kiln formed glass in the front windowsUnfortunately our photos don’t do justice to the colours of the glass or the mosaics; the light was wrong, too grey.
Look at the shape of the ceilingBy now we had had enough of looking at stuff, so rather than doing another museum (we had meant to do the Picasso museum) we went back to Barri Gotic area and walked into more of the side streets.
These lovely chanderliers are at the entrances to some of the shops
There’re an awful lot of beggars in Barcelona; many are middle aged females who are holding up a photo of young children; they are practically always bare foot (but you can see their shoes under their skirts if you look carefully) and they look like immigrants (from Rumania or Poland?).When we got back to the van we were absolutely shattered; three, nine hour, days of sightseeing, together with an eight – ten mile cycle ride each day is exhausting.
