Back again,  Before leaving I did a lot of research on Barcelona and Gaudi. I might be wrong here, but these two were made for each other.  He was a deeply religious man who used nature as his guide.  It is the way that he used nature that even still just thinking about it, leaves me speechless.

Here is the Casa Batllo  This was/is a house Gaudi was commissioned to build.  To sits on a main drag in downtown Barcelona that also houses high end stores.

This was the sitting room.  Pardon the shadows, it was late afternoon when we visited!   The stained glass has to be marvelous with the beautiful Barcelona sun.

The half bathroom.  The sink looked like a small wave.

Next we went outside to the patio are.  Nothing missed Gaudi’s eye.  It was the details that I just admired.

Even the building was outlined.  I spent a long time in the patio.  I kept picturing myself there enjoying the colors and the beauty of the space.

Back inside now.  This was an example of the walls as you walk up the stairs.  The higher we went the bluer the walls were.

As I said, all the space was designed.  I thought the patio was amazing until a reached the roof.
