Barcelona’s Park Güell

Lots of cities have parks.  Probably most cities.  There are parks and then there is Park Güell in Barcelona.  It is more wonderland than park and this is where the famed Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí’ let his imagination run wild with fantastical shapes and designs that utilized his use of nature and organic structures to build a unique garden.

Casa Milà

Earlier this week Kongo visited Casa Milà, popularly known as La Pedrera (the quarry) in Barcelona.  This home was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and built in 1910.  Kongo–under the guiding instruction of Mrs. Kongo–has become a bit of an architecture groupie and visiting the modernistic creation on the Passeig de Gràcia was a highlight of their stay in Spain.
