I was wondering if we'd ever get to see this curiosity. It certainly is the definition of Barcelona, but suffering from tiring colds, we wanted to save it for a day when we both felt well enough to cope with it's vastness. Luckily we did. There are no words that can adequately describe the wonder that is this fantastic structure. Even the photos are incapable of transmitting the essence of this sacred place. I have chosen only a few to give you a peek. You must go.
The play of the light in all the spaces makes this a total marvel. The vastness of the space and towering edifice is just all too astonishing.
Paradise XXVIII 52-51 by Dante
Hence, if in this wondrous and angelic temple,
That hath for confine only light and love,
My wish may have completion I must know
