Stained Glass Windows At The Sagrada Familia.

I Love Cathedrals And Not Just Castles

I’ve already told you about how much I adore castles but I haven’t told you about my other big love. Yes, it’s true. My love cannot be contained to only one thing as I’m also obsessed with cathedrals!

Our rather passionate affair began in Rome last year when I visited the Vatican and entered the awe inspiring St. Peter’s Basilica for the first time. So overcome with emotion, I was moved to tears. This rather moving experience made me decide that I would spend the rest of my life exploring as many castles and cathedrals as possible.

So naturally when in Barcelona last week, I just had to go and see Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen, strange and wonderful, looking like a fantastical structure that would fit perfectly in a Lord Of The Rings movie.

The inside is just as unbelievably stunning and I was completely enthralled with all of the beautiful stained glass windows.

  1. Great pics! I’ve only seen pics of this cathedral from the outside so far and really liked it. But the inside seems to be even more beautiful. Love the windows!!

  2. I love these shots especially since I love cathedrals too! Only issue is my pictures don’t come out as good as yours. I’ve decided to work on my photography skills!

  3. Wow, this is lovely. I went there but sadly did not go inside…I’m kicking myself now for that, especially since I love cathedrals and stained glass. What a beautiful cathedral interior!

  4. I really like Gaudi’s buildings, such an interesting, eccentric architect. Very nice photos you got. I’m going to Barcelona in two weeks, look forward to have a look inside now.

  5. Can’t wait to go back and really explore this place next year. I love how its so intricate and timeless. Castles and cathedrals are great reasons to travel.
