When we think of famous Hispanics, possibly the last people we think of are architects. Antoni Gaudí changed the way the people of Barcelona and the rest of the world looked at buildings as they walk the streets. Gaudí’s style emulates nature and goes against the grain of traditional architecture. Throughout Barcelona one can see buildings, parks, street lamps, and churches that Gaudí used his Midas touch on. The most impressive of his works is the Sagrada Familia which began construction in the 1800’s and is not scheduled to be finished for another twenty years. When completed this Church will be the tallest in the world standing at 566 feet. Having seen these works in person, I strongly suggest that anyone who goes to Barcelona take a tour of his works to see these magnificent buildings in person.
