Barcelona Beautiful

 

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that we have just returned from a truly memorable visit to the beautiful and historic city of Barcelona.

For my changingpalette followers here are some of our favourite moments, from Antoni Gaudi’s stunning Sagrada Familia cathedral, to his La Pedrera rooftop sculptures and his mosaics in Park Guell, to the glorious paintings of Joan Miro at the Fundacio Joan Miro in Parc de Montjuic, to dinner at the iconic 4Gats restaurant and before leaving the celebrations in the streets on Spain’s National holiday on October 12th.

As you watch the slideshow enjoy the guitar of Edgar Moffatt who treated us to his art as we waited in line for the opening of The Prado in Madrid. (Our Madrid visit to follow).

No words except to say to those grieving and suffering today you are in all of our hearts.
