When street art gets all trippy and plays with your mind. The painting behind me spans 2 walls and a parking garage. Huge kudos to the artist. And huge kudos to my friend Humberto for knowing about it!⠀
Last flight leaving Philly of 2018 takes off today. Ready to adventure with my not-so-little bro and big sis for a few days!⠀
Where’s this weekend taking you?
Has anyone been lucky enough to see La Sagrada Família?! If not, is it on your must see list?
This behemoth of a church, or temple as some would call it, was started 136 years ago on March 19th, 1882. The artist Antoni Gaudí designed the structure along with many other items scattered throughout the city. Needless to say, this was his grandest accomplishment. He worked on the design itself for over 40 years trying to perfect every detail possible. As someone who has been lucky enough to stand in front and inside of this masterpiece, I can absolutely say that his hard work paid off. It is such an incredible sight to see towering over Barcelona.
Standing at about 564ft (172m) it is among the tallest churches in the world. The majority of the building is made from cement but I truly believe that there isn’t a single spot on the inside or out that has not been artistically designed with immense detail based on Gaudi’s original plans. With 18 towers, 3 facades, and hundreds of individual carvings the building won’t be finished for another 25 years or so. Although Gaudí passed away in 1926, the church wanted to continue pursuing his vision of la Sagrada Família and see it through to the end.
