This must have taken a long time to create but oh what fun it would have been.

this is but a tiny portion of the wall/bench - my camera could not get it all in properly due to the shape and sheer size of the terrace. I was happy just to find bits without people sitting!

Wow, that bench is unique and beautiful - and the view beyond it is lovely! I have no trouble imagining the challenge you faced trying to find unpopulated sections of it to photograph!

It must have taken a lot of time and patience to crate this. It's good to see it now so appreciated.

the practical side of me wonders where he got all the bits for the mosaic...
the previous post also has a nice bit of painting on the house that could be a mural.

You are so lucky to get photos without the usual crowds. Gaudi was brilliant and one of a kind. His art seems to inspire awe and happiness. This mosaic serpent is a perfect example. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
