A friend of mine's mother visited the Sagreda Familia, she is ill at the moment, so say a prayer, and the carvings of the Rosary were an important moment in her conversion, for myself, I wasn't quite so moved. The interior is a building site. I am not mean but I rather resented paying 11 euros to get in plus a further 2.50 to get up onto the roof. I must admit I do dislike Gaudi's work, as holy as he was.
But Barcelona was fun, I was a little anxious about being attacked by that anarchist woman who used to bite out the throats of priest in the civil war. Some of the church's still bear the traces of the desolation of civil war. Unlike the rest of the Iberian peninsula, I didn't see a single priest or nun on the streets. On May Day there were a few small demonstrations carrying red and black balloons. I'll put some more pictures up later.
