      Barcelona

      October 5, 2021 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Wie bereits erwähnt, hemmer eus uf em Camping Barcelona niedergloh. Obwohl er nöd in Barcelona isch, bütet er täglich en Bring und Abholservice mit em Reisecar ah.
      Da mir ja chli im Krieg mit de ÖV Tickets sind hämmer eus dementsprechend rächt schnäll für de Reisecar entschiede ;-)

      Wie mer uf de Föteli erahne chan, au in Barcelona hetts nur gschiffäd, irgendwie Reist de Räge mit eus mit. So hämmer eus no im Bus entschiede Tickets für se Hopon Hopoff Bus zchaufe. Mer händ dänkt so chömmer eus Barcelona gmüetlich us em Bus ahluege und werdet nöd verrrägnet. Da aber de Bus uf Grund vom Räge s Dach zur gmacht het unds ja eigentlich nur uf dem obere Deck luschtig isch, isch das mit em Troche blibe au id Hose. Es het die ganz Ziit schräg inegrägned so das nur die mitlere Sitz troche bliebe sind und uf die het eigentlich gar niemmert wellä Sitze, will det gar nöd richtig usegseh hesch.

      Zum Glück hemmer aber doch au no paar Trochni Abschnitt gha, die hemmer denn gnosse zum chli dur Barcelona z schlendärä und gmüetlich Zmittag ässe und eus debii es rüüschli ahztrinke (bi 3.90 Euro en Mojito münd mir schnäpplijäger doch zueschlah oder nöd?!😉)

      Ja und wenn mer gad nöd in Barcelona gsi sind hemmers eus eifach a oisem Pool gmüetlich gmacht. De Vorteil vo de Näbesaison - Pool ganz allei für dich.

      (Föteli: Sagrada Familia, hoponhopoff Bus, Catalane wieder einisch meh am Demonstriere, Plaça d‘Espanya, Mittagässe, es Männli am 💩,de Michi am warte, während d Ines am Shoppä isch und de Pool für ois allei)

      Memo a ois:
      - Ohni de Gaudi gäbtis keis Barcelona
      - Ohni Mojito keis Rüschli
      - und ohni Schwümmbrülle ken noie Olympiastar alias Michi

      Sagrada Familia

      February 23, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

      One of the iconic buildings in Barcelona is the church built by Modernist Antoni Gaudi. The cathedral was started by another architect who quit after one year. Gaudi accepted the commission and 100 years after Gaudi’s death, in 2026, the cathedral (now a Basilica) will be finished. The Basilica has 2 facades finished (the Nativity, the Passion), with the Glory facade still to be completed. Unlike other churches, the stories of Christian teaching are portrayed on the outside. The inside is designed to suggest a forest. The columns reach to the ceiling and then branch out like tree limbs. There are no flying buttresses...the columns are fashioned from different stones, according to the load they support. The church will eventually have 18 spires, the highest representing the Virgin Mary. This building has so much symbolism and design complexity that it is impossible to discribe.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our audio tour and were glad we had pre-bought our tickets on-line. We were told that on a slow day, 5000 people visit the Basilica.

      One additional oddity...The printed information wall posters refers to the church as a “temple” but we did not see any explanation.
