La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona. I want to go back to see it again -- if and when it is ever finished!!

'Casa Batlló' Antoni Gaudí  1906. Joinery windows set with multicolored stained glass. In front of the large windows, as if they were pillars that support the complex stone structure, there are six fine columns that seem to simulate the bones of a limb, in fact, this is a floral decoration. The rounded shapes of the gaps and the lip-like edges carved into the stone surrounding them create a semblance of a fully open mouth, for which the Casa Batlló has been nicknamed the "house of yawns."
