Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia is a church in Barcelona that they have been building for 100 years. Gaudi designed it and Barcelona has decided to follow through with it and keep building it until it is done. There are three different sides, each representing three parts of your faith.

It was 10 euros each to get in and that didn't get us to the top. That was another 3 euros each and the line was about 3 hours long. Needless to say we never made it to the top.

We were able to walk through the entire down stairs and see all the work they have done and that they are currently doing.  I thought the museum at the very end about the building and about Gaudi and how he designed it was fascinating!

Artwork we saw in Madrid

We had the chance to go to three art museums in Madrid. The Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum.

These first two paintings are Dali's. I believe all of these works are in the Reina Sofia. I don't think we were able to take any photos in the other museums.
Dali painting Madrid Spain

This one is a Pablo Picasso.This one are both done by Vallerta (I think)
I do not remember who painted this. Can you see the people inside through the window and the person outside of the window to the side.
