La Sagrada Familia

Chippy's been to Barcelona - I lurve Barcelona, would damn well live there if only I was gorgeous, young and, well Spanish. Anyhoo, Sagrada Familia is the only building I've ever seen in my life that quite literally left me speechless. To me, it seems alive, organic even.

Looks rather gaudy to me.

You, speechless, I don't believe it for a moment! It was a truly amazing building though...

It was a very odd building - along with Parc Guell. But couldn't shake the feeling that Gaudi really was just a failed project manager rather than the genius he keeps being held to be.

And personally Toledo's Cathedral leaves this in it's dust...
