Spain trip report: Barcelona, Day 1, La Sagrada Familia 2

So, I think I’m caught up on everything but Spain and Las Vegas. But I still have tons of pics!

When last I left off, we were going to take the lift up to the top of one of the spires of La Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona.

We took the stairs down, which was a good idea, because you have awesome views out the sides of the building and the construction.

Some of the sculpture sketches. This one of Judas and Jesus is a little…homoerotic?
