Barcelona Day 2 ; Another Gaudi's masterpieces

After Sagrada, Gaudi's very significant but unfinished masterpiece, we continued on to his house. Casa Mila, or better known as La Pedrera situated just the other side from Sagrada's area. We hop on the train, still on the blue line but heading to Cornella and off at Diagonal station.

While we were after his house, we spent some time at the Placa Catalunya. Another long walk like La Ramblas. Sesat sekejap sebenarnya hihi..


 Aariz still sleeping..

 like Champs Elysees in Paris

 you know you're about a landmark when you saw hop on hop off tour bus

this is Casa Mila..Gaudi's house
gothic!


We didn't plan on entering this. So we didn't at all ..not a single sneak to what's  inside. I'm really not his fan huh? Sebenarnya after I sampai Alhambra..rasa macam tak hairan dah semua yang lain. I'm adoring it too much that I forget eveything else... Macam cari dress pink, dress lain yang lagi cantik dah tak kelihatan..haha

Anyway, we should appreciate the work as it was considered as the innovation of curtain wall. Tengok sajalah the wave wall tu..Hebat.

me on the other side..depan Casa Mila

For lunch, sebenarnya I have an Indian restaurant in my list but terjumpa pula a Turkish restaurant..so sebab lapar sangat ngap je la ini dulu...

sedap, tidak mengecewakan..

Perut dah kenyang, bateri Aariz pun dah recharged, so off to Parc Guell. We got to reach Lessep station on the Green line pula. Jauh. Almost 20  mins of walking to reach the parc at El Carmel hill.

And this is the famous Parc Guell..,


Again, designed by Antonio Gaudi, yep you can see his element in there,The park was originally part of a commercially unsuccessful housing site, the idea of Count Eusebi Güell, whom the park was named after.



 ANTM cycle 7 walk here =)





anyway...around the world =)


Lepas solat semua kat taman tu, sejuk betul wuduk, we hired a cab lah turun bawah..tak larat lah menapak lagi. Back to the Lessep station stroller patah! Kalutnya, not really patah but the screw has gone! Pelan2 jalan sampai Placa Espanya..alhamdulillah orang baik ada saja mana2 kan. He helped us with an information of local shop, and we went to this shop 'Feretalia', where I met an old lady with a biggg dog named Fifina..eheh. But stupid me I didn't snap a single photo. I was too afraid of the big dog..she's bigger than me!

Without photo proof, tapi kalau buat baik tu sampai bila-bila kita ingat kan?

So, that was Spain. I love Spain. Surely in my list of places-to-come-again. InsyAllah.

Gaudi believed only men drew straight lines and that curves belong to God,so he's avoiding lines wherever and whenever possible,huhh weird eii but that what makes his work unique.We got student rates utk Casa Mila,the rooftop design is amazing i should say,chimney nya macam marching soldiers and u can get a very nice view of segrada familia from there.seronok kan spain ni
