I’ll give you all a break for a 7 days. Tomorrow is starting my business trip to Barcelona...I leave this picture for you to observe in my absence that beautiful Spanish architecture and folklore...
Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain and the capital city of Catalonia. This place has won the esteemed 1999 RIBA Royal Gold Medal, mainly because of the structural designs of edifices. Not all cities have had the prestige of having that award. It used to be just architects who win awards like these, but Barcelona has pretty much done it as a city. Part of these sites are works of the celebrated architect Antoni Gaudi, responsible for the great but still-in-progress temple of the Sagrada Familia (construction of this started in year 1882 and is due for completion in 2026).
Barcelona is one of the best places in the world to appreciate the Mediterranean atmosphere.
For me the one of the most brilliant jewels of universal architecture is the Alhambra (in Andalusia) a series of palaces and gardens built under the Nazari Dynasty in the 14th C...

Probably you're back sometime around this time... here in the U.S. there's a national holiday in play for this 3-day weekend, Monday being our "Memorial Day" otherwise "Day of Remembrance." It's considered the start of the summer vacation season, what with school graduations happening a lot...
Best to you, Viera!

Thank you Viera for this beautiful blog and photographs. I have seen the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Família in different angles in TV during the Barcelona Olympics. This structure is really a structural marvel. Wish you a happy trip to Barcelona and the very best in your business dealings. Best wishes.
